Two Maga activists are spilling all to 1/6 committee along with documents

A couple, who are Maga activists and involved with the planning of 1/6 are now talking with the 1/6 committee. While reading their interview with Rolling Stone, it appears to me that they may be trying to rehabilitate their reputations, I concluded it was some sour grapes from not getting a previous pardon from Trump and the fact that some of the more elite Maga's are getting their legal expenses funded in relation to their defense from 1/6 committee, this couple is getting nothing.

In any event they have named some names like Bannon, Gosar, Cawthorn and Amy Klemer and have handed over social media messages etc. Sounds like they may have a plethora of information and evidence. They are still believers of wrong doings in the election but they considered the coup attempt a step too far. (I am not convinced that they are not just protecting themselves).

That is the problem when the Maga elite ignore those on the ground, they tend to turn on them.

Among the documents the couple is providing are conversations they had with staffers and members of Congress as they planned the main rally that took place on the White House Ellipse that day. Stockton described these discussions as largely logistical and focused on planning the members’ participation in objections to the electoral certification on the House floor and various events that were staged to protest against the election. They include Instagram messages Lawrence exchanged with Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) as she tried to get him to speak at the Ellipse rally. Cawthorn, whose office did not immediately respond to a request for comment, ultimately appeared onstage at that event.

“We’re turning it all over and we’ll let the cards fall where they may,” Stockton says.

Also an interesting story about how much of a disaster it was when Governors sent Guardsmen to the border to help with border control. It is an interesting read

Unvaxxed nurses not only being laid off but may have their licenses revoked

Quebec previously told nurses that if they fail to get vaccinated they will be laid off and have until Friday. The provincial government has now said they may also revoke their licenses, not sure if that will fly, with the courts where no doubt it will be challenged. In the interim though, they will not be able to work anyway, with mandates in most of Canada.

Thank you President Biden, from Canada

With the US allowing Meng to go back to China, the Chinese government has now released the two Canadian men, being held by China in retaliation. Canada was holding Weng on behalf of the US on a warrant issued by Trump but it was Canadian citizens that paid the price. Trudeau worked with Biden and they are on a plane home!!!

If anyone had any doubts about Maggie Haberman's predilection for Trump

This should put it to sleep. She is now re-tweeting Trump's disgusting video of Afghans falling from the planes in Afghanistan, calling it worse than Saigon. There is no getting around her loyalties anymore:

Barr's DOJ secretly subpoenaed data from Apple on democratic congressman

From the New York Times

*snip*
WASHINGTON — As the Justice Department investigated who was behind leaks of classified information early in the Trump administration, it took a highly unusual step: Prosecutors subpoenaed Apple for data from the accounts of at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, aides and family members. One was a minor.

All told, the records of at least a dozen people tied to the committee were seized in 2017 and early 2018, including those of Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, then the panel’s top Democrat and now its chairman, according to committee officials and two other people briefed on the inquiry.

Prosecutors, under the beleaguered attorney general, Jeff Sessions, were hunting for the sources behind news media reports about contacts between Trump associates and Russia. Ultimately, the data and other evidence did not tie the committee to the leaks, and investigators debated whether they had hit a d
lead end and some even discussed closing the inquiry.
