Sunday Comic: GOP Promises “Payback” for Subpoenas and the January 6 Committee

By S.E. Barcus

Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Kevin McCarthy, and Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Yes, they likely all broke the law. And it was the worst attempted coup in our nation’s history. But we’re not supposed to hold anyone accountable if they’re in government, at least not if they’re in the GOP. They spent 7 million on the Benghazi committee, brazenly witchhunting Hillary for the 2016 election. And came up with nothing, of course.

From Ballotpedia:

James Comey, the director of the FBI, announced on July 5, 2016, that the agency found that “no charges [were] appropriate in this case.” He said in a statement, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. … In looking back at our investigations into mishandling or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts. All the cases prosecuted involved some combination of: clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or indications of disloyalty to the United States; or efforts to obstruct justice. We do not see those things here.”

“Hillary Clinton participated in a voluntary interview with the FBI on July 2, 2016. “I’ve been eager to do it, and I was pleased to have the opportunity to assist the department in bringing its review to a conclusion,” Clinton said in an interview after the meeting.”

Meanwhile. Was the GOP using this for polticial purposes?!?!

“The Republican National Committee released a statement remarking that Clinton had “just taken the unprecedented step of becoming the first major party presidential candidate to be interviewed by the F.B.I. as part of a criminal investigation surrounding her reckless conduct.”

You will hear OUTRAGE from neocons about how the Mueller investigation cost $32 million. But 1) it wasn’t a partisan-fabricated issue designed to hurt a polticial candidate. It was actually about something very concerning — was a foreign power influencing our elections? What did it produce? A BUTT-LOAD of indictments and crimes. And it was TRUMP’S own Justice Department investigating!

So, now we have January 6. What has this committee already uncovered? Over 800 people have already been charged with crimes. And there is ample evidence that several GOP members of Congress might have knowledge that could help the committee — or might even be involved in the crimes themselves. They have refused to speak to the committee, FOR SOME STRANGE REASON. (Are they not “Patriots”?!) And thus … subpoena. The Committee is effectively demonstrating collusion for a VIOLENT COUP, with these GOP Congressional leaders and Trump deeply involved. Oh, but what a horrible partisan committee! We need “investigative revenge”.
