LIVE NUDES ONE NIGHT ONLY, It’s Mark Meadows! A January 6 Congress Liveblog

Don’t worry, we are just teasing! Mark Meadows will not be a live nude during today’s hearing of the House January 6 Select Committee. But he will be SEXPOSED!

Here is what we mean by that, if you haven’t run away already because you’re worried that PBS NewsHour video just below is just a documentary about Mark Meadows’s junk.

These are serious times in America and this is a serious website.

1:02: Judy Woodruff notes on PBS that this Committee makes a habit of starting on time. We agree, except for how they keep changing the hearing times. But we also have this suspicion that they’ve done that a couple times because they didn’t want the Supreme Court to fuck them by banning abortion the morning of one of their big hearings.

Anyway, chair Bennie Thompson is introducing the day’s activities. Says today they will show that Trump sending his mob to scream “hang Mike Pence” — and God knows what else if the mob had found him — wasn’t some isolated incident, but rather an integral part of a much larger plan. And we’re going to talk about the fake electors, specifically Trump’s scheme to get Republican officials to overturn the election in swing states, and to get slates of fake electors to throw states’ results into chaos.

1:09: Liz Cheney names as the chief instigators of the criminal plot to overturn the election Trump himself, Rudy Giuliani and John Eastman. We’d note than when people talk about how Merrick Garland needs to have the courage to actually try to defend democracy and put some motherfuckers in jail, those would be three who probably need to go there.

Cheney is now playing a clip of Bill Barr saying rumors and conspiracy theories of fraud in Fulton County, Georgia, were total bullshit. Then footage of former acting deputy attorney general Richard Donoghue testifying that he told Trump there was no there there.

1:13: Cheney plays clip of Gabriel Sterling, Georgia SecState Brad Raffensperger’s second-in-command, just absolutely losing his shit in December 2020 telling Trump and the then-Republican senators from Georgia to put a stop to the madness. We wrote about that here.

Both men will testify today.

1:16: Schiff explaining in simple terms how the fake electors scheme was supposed to work, to give Mike Pence a chance to just single-handedly overturn the election by picking the fake electors. Schiff says we’re going to talk today about exactly which laws these foul souls broke.

Merrick Garland, you’re free to copy off the Committee’s paper, as usual!

1:21: Schiff introduces video the Committee put together of the coordinated intimidation campaign Trump and his garbage colleagues launched against state and local elections officials, trying to bully them into overturning the election for Trump.

1:24: Wow, they have clips of Trump campaign lackey idiots reading scripts and telling state officials they have the right to stab democracy in the dick because Donald Trump’s ego was bruised. Just amazing how all these people have permanently destroyed their reputations for the sake of such a loser.

1:27: Video includes clip of Nick Fuentes just lightly suggesting that state legislators should be killed. Identifies him simply as a “conservative activist.” Good. And accurate.

1:29: First panel being introduced. It includes Rusty Bowers, GOP speaker of the Arizona state House who wouldn’t overturn the election for Trump, plus Raffensperger and Sterling.

1:31: BENNIE THOMPSON: Rusty Bowers, did you want Trump to win?


THOMPSON: Did he win?

BOWERS: No, big loser.

1:32: Schiff reading statement from Trump today to Rusty Bowers, claiming that Bowers told Trump the election was rigged and that he won. “I did have a conversation with the president. That certainly isn’t it!” Bowers says if anybody ever says he said the election was rigged, “that would not be true.”

So Bowers is just confirming Trump is a liar.

1:35: Bowers recounting a conversation he and his wife had with Trump and Giuliani, where they made these wildass claims of fraud, like 200,000 illegal immigrants voting, and thousands of dead voters. Bowers asked for names. Giuliani said he had them. Trump apparently told Giuliani to give him the names. Bowers never got those names.


1:37: Bowers explaining how Giuliani asked him hold Committee hearings based on this fake evidence nobody would be able to give to him. He said fuck off. Bowers said they told him they could just remove Joe Biden’s electors, and they should have a hearing on that. Bowers told them WOW, so that’s against the Constitution and my oath of office, Jesus Christ, holy shit.

1:39: Bowers confirms that Rudy Giuliani leaned on him to do all these things partly because “we’re all Republicans.” Party above country, in other words.

1:40: Bowers just saying over and over again how often these awful people asked him to violate his oath of office, and just how beyond the pale that was for him.

1:42: Schiff just confirming that Rudy Giuliani doing an Amway presentation in a hotel ballroom at the Ramada off the highway in Glendale is not in fact an official hearing of the Arizona state House of Representatives.

1:45: LOLOL Bowers says at one point Giuliani did indeed say they had a lot of theories, but not a lot of evidence! Says he doesn’t know whether that was a gaffe or a Freudian slip or what.
