‘I’ve lost my name, I’ve lost my reputation’: Voting official givers testimony at Jan 6 hearings

The 6 January select committee has subpoenaed previously unseen footage from a documentary filmmaker who had access to Donald Trump and his inner circle around the time of the 2020 election.

In its subpoena to Alex Holder, which was first released by Politico, the committee asks for any raw footage shot from 6 January 2021, that features discussion of election fraud or election integrity or featuring interviews with Mr Trump, his children, or Mike Pence. Mr Holder has agreed. Some of Mr Trump’s own aides appear blindsided by the news a film crew had access to the former president and his family.

The committee today turned its focus to two pivotal swing states for its fourth public hearing, telling the story of Mr Trump’s efforts to personally pressure election officials in Georgia and Arizona to overturn his defeat in their respective states. They gave detailed accounts of how they protected the integrity of the election and emotional testimony about the threats they endured.

Mr Trump, meanwhile, has taken to Truth Social to once again attack the committee. Deriding it as a victim of “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, he fumed that “crazed” Democrats are “playing the ridiculous Insurrection Card” because of his supposedly strong polling.


GOP officials and election workers reveal dramatic cost of Team Trump intimidation

Donald Trump’s lies about the 2020 election inspired his supporters to undertake campaigns of harassment and threats against state legislators and election officials, including a break-in at the home of a targeted official’s family member, witnesses told the House January 6 select committee on Tuesday.

The panel’s fourth hearing examined the pressure campaign Mr Trump and his allies mounted to convince legislators in Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and other swing states to implement a fringe legal theory under which they could replace electors for Mr Biden — who voters chose on election day — with pro-Trump electors, as well as the consequences of the false claims of fraud put forth by Mr Trump and his allies.

Ivanka Trump wanted father to ‘fight’ election, film shows

New documentary footage shows that Ivanka Trump wanted her father to continue fighting the 2020 election result well into December-contradicting her testimony in the recent 6 January hearings that she quickly accepted Donald Trump’s election loss.

“I think that, as the president has said, every single vote needs to be counted and needs to be heard, and he campaigned for the voiceless,” Ms Trump said of her “take” on her father’s election conspiracies, to a film crew in mid-December, as part of a yet-to-be-released documentary, The New York Times reported.

“And I think a lot of Americans feel very, very disenfranchised right now, and really, question the sanctity of our elections, and that’s not right, it’s not acceptable.”

Trump’s ‘playbook’ to overturn election

A House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection is turning to former President Donald Trump’s pressure campaign on state and local officials to overturn his 2020 election loss.

In its fourth hearing this month, the panel is examining how Trump focused on a few swing states, directly urging officials to decertify President Joe Biden’s victory or find additional votes for himself. It was part of a larger scheme that also involved dozens of lawsuits, pressure on Department of Justice officials and, eventually, lobbying Vice President Mike Pence to reject Biden’s win at the congressional electoral count on Jan. 6.

Texas GOP cements swing to far right with party platform

Ten years ago, the Texas Republican Party used its platform to oppose teaching critical thinking in schools. In 2014, it declared homosexuality a chosen behavior contrary to God and endorsed “reparative therapy” to reverse it.
