January 6th 'Emergency' Hearing Delivers Laughably Absurd 'Bombshells'

In case you were too busy caring about things that actually matter to notice, the January 6th committee is back in session. That came after its members announced an “emergency” hearing for Tuesday, including the inclusion of a “surprise” witness.


Now, you’d think going through such pomp and circumstance meant they came across some damning new evidence proving their assertion that Donald Trump organized an insurrection. But if you thought that, you thought wrong.

Rather, Tuesday’s hearing was another ridiculous parade of absurdity, full of hearsay and no hard evidence of essentially anything. Yet, one claim by a woman named Cassidy Hutchinson, a former Mark Meadows aide, truly took the cake. The committee strapped on its skis and did a double backflip over the shark by claiming that protesters on January 6th had AR-15s.

Rep. Liz Cheney backed the claim during the hearing, quoting what appeared to be completely mistaken police transmissions, and I’m just left wondering how stupid they think the American people are. Let’s game this out.


According to Cheney and her ridiculous cohorts, there were protesters carrying AR-15s on January 6th, but not a single picture was taken of these armed “insurrectionists” despite there being cameras everywhere. Past that, not a single arrest was made of anyone carrying a rifle during the unrest, and in Washington, DC, that kind of open carry of a rifle would have been illegal. We are also supposed to believe that the police saw these people with AR-15s but didn’t stop Trump from speaking in public in the same area, which just makes no sense at all given protection protocols.

Further, these AR-15-toting insurrectionists apparently did not actually use their weapons, which again makes no sense if their goal was to commit…insurrection.

It gets better, though. Later, Hutchinson dropped the jaw-dropping revelation that Trump may have thrown a plate against the wall after being told there was no election fraud. Does the bad orange man know no bounds? Try not to shudder while watching this next clip.


I don’t know about you, but I want Trump in handcuffs right now. We simply can’t survive as a democracy if he isn’t punished for…getting ketchup on a wall. And that assumes Cassidy’s fanciful tale is even true.

Again, as I’ve said many times in past write-ups, what is any of this supposed to prove? Where’s the evidence of a crime? Heck, where’s the evidence of Trump even having a non-criminal role in the events of January 6th? All of this mud-slinging is pointless and is simply meant to push a partisan narrative crafted by Nancy Pelosi and the like. There are no bombshells here. Just dud after dud after dud.

To reiterate, the January 6th committee is an embarrassment. That its members, Democrats at large, and the media are continuing to push this farce, complete with “emergency” hearings, while the nation suffers under crushing inflation and an economic downturn, is a slap in the face to normal Americans. I continue to maintain the backlash will be swift in November.
