AG WILLIAM BARR:
From the stick a fork in him files…
The Associated Press (AP) reported that Attorney General William Barr declared Tuesday the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.
After almost four years of the Trump administration, when someone finally tells the truth, it makes headlines.
Surprise! The Trump campaign disagreed. Here is part of the statement from Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis:
“With all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation. We have gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined. We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth.”
I think I saw a stain on the statement. Maybe it was Rudy’s hair dye…
Decades from now some old Trump supporter will be telling wild tales about how the election was stolen from Trump. They will never accept defeat.
It was revealed that health care workers and nursing home residents should be at the front of the line when the first coronavirus vaccine shots become available, an influential government advisory panel said Tuesday. (AP)
Those are great choices. I’m not a health care worker and unless my wife has a surprise for me, I am not ready to hit the nursing home circuit just yet. I do kind of like the idea of eating dinner at 4:30 p.m. and going to bed after Jeopardy, though.
Reuters is reporting that Gabriel Sterling, manager for Georgia’s voting systems, implored U.S. President Donald Trump to “stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence” by fanning baseless claims that the election he lost last month was rigged.
Reuters also reported that on Monday, one of the president’s lawyers, Joseph diGenova, called in to a cable show to say that Christopher Krebs, the former head of U.S. election security, should be “taken out at dawn and shot.” Krebs was fired by Trump after saying there was no evidence voting had been compromised.
CNN reported his remarks this way:
“Anybody who thinks the election went well, like that idiot Krebs who used to be the head of cybersecurity. That guy is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot.”
Joseph diGenova should never practice law in this country again. The next day diGenova said his “remarks were sarcastic and made in jest.”
Trump should call off the dogs. There are a few of his supporters who are just wacko enough to try and kill people because of the lost election.
Some of us who have worked for politicians know first-hand there are people out there who are dangerous and crazy. Trump and his people saying things like diGenova said may light their fuse.
Reminder for the football fans – there’s an NFL football game this afternoon! The 6-4 Baltimore Ravens head to Pittsburgh to take on the 10-0 Steelers.
According to NFL.com, the game will be broadcast on NBC and starts at 1:40 p.m. Montana time.
ONE MORE THING:
My wife asked me to stop singing “I’m a Believer” by The Monkees because she found it annoying. At first I thought she was kidding.
Then I saw her face…
