getting people a voting id needs to be easier imo
1. Hire more help, and make it mobile.
2. Have branches where the people are.
a. High schools. When they turn 18, if the family doesnt have a car, this would help.

b. Senior centers
c. Church groups
d. Community centers.
e. County fairs.

Im sure there would be other locations, its early this morning

Jan. 6 panel: Ex-White House lawyer spoke of 'Trump’s supreme dereliction of duty'
The statement came amid reports that former Trump White House lawyer Pat Cipollone had invoked executive privilege for some questions Friday.

The House Jan. 6 committee Saturday issued a statement describing the input of an ex-White House lawyer as "reinforcing" alleged misconduct by former President Donald Trump.

The idea that the former Trump White House counsel Pat Cipollone might have confirmed others witnesses' damning accounts in his much-anticipated private interview Friday was initially tempered by the possibility that he may have invoked executive privilege, a legal concept intended to allow presidents to speak freely with legal advisers.

Responding to multiple reports that Cipollone had invoked that privilege during his daylong testimony under subpoena, a committee spokesman suggested a different storyline.

"In our interview with Mr. Cipollone, the Committee received critical testimony on nearly every major topic in its investigation, reinforcing key points regarding Donald Trump’s misconduct and providing highly relevant new information that will play a central role in its upcoming hearings," the statement from House Select Committee spokesman Tim Mulvey read.

It continued: "This includes information demonstrating Donald Trump’s supreme dereliction of duty."

Trump and his representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment late Saturday.

Mulvey did not confirm or deny the reports on privilege, but said Cipollone was never guided by the panel to avoid potentially privileged information.

In fact, the statement suggests that in Cipollone, the committee got another voice to back up some of the vivid testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, assistant to former Trump Chief of Staff Mark

'Closing argument': Jan. 6 panel makes final hearings push
She testified that on Jan. 6, 2021, Trump was filled with rage and ordered his Secret Service detail to take him to the Capitol so he could join supporters who would eventually enter the complex and attack police while trying to reach lawmakers and Vice President Mike Pence, all participating in certifying Trump's loss.

She said Secret Service agents in a presidential SUV with Trump refused to take him, and the president lunged for the steering wheel from behind the front seats and then tried to grab the throat of one agent, claims Trump has denied.

She also testified that Trump showed no sympathy for Pence as the rioters were getting potentially life-threateningly close to the vice president and Trump allegedly had the time and the power to call them off. The former president has denied this as well.

On Saturday Mulvey said in the committee's statement that Cipollone "corroborated key elements of Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony."

Good article. Thanks.

Anybody who supports gutting welfare ought to wake up in the body of a single mother with little kids who was abandoned by her deadbeat, scumbag husband......just once, I would love for that fantasy of mine to come true so that I could see the look on the face of a person who went to bed one night as a well-fed white guy, and then woke up the next morning in that woman's shoes.

Default Bannon makes last-minute offer to testify

Bannon makes last-minute offer to testify to Jan. 6 committee ahead of criminal contempt trial

https://www.politico.com/news/2022/0...imony-00044952

Longtime Donald Trump ally Steve Bannon has made a last-minute offer to testify to the Jan. 6 select committee, just days before his criminal trial for defying the panel’s subpoena is set to begin.

The offer, in a letter from Bannon’s attorney Robert Costello, cited an accompanying letter from Trump himself purporting to “waive” executive privilege over Bannon’s testimony — a privilege that the committee and Justice Department say was never properly invoked and might not be applicable to a former president.


It’s unclear whether the panel considers the offer a serious one. Bannon has for months refused to testify to the committee by claiming absolute “immunity” from congressional subpoenas because of his role in the Trump White House, which ended in 2017. That immunity, he argued, stemmed from longstanding internal Justice Department opinions that prohibit Congress from compelling the testimony of current or former high-level officials. Offering to testify suggests he may be abandoning the immunity claim.

Costello said in the email that Bannon still considered the subpoena invalid but was deferring to Trump’s wish that Bannon testify.

Costello’s letter made no mention of the committee’s subpoena for Bannon’s documents. But Costello said in an email to POLITICO that Bannon also intended to provide documents subpoenaed by the committee as part of any arrangement.

The Justice Department charged Bannon with two counts of criminal contempt in November for his defiance of the select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol. One count concerns his refusal to testify, and the other is for his refusal to provide documents. It’s not clear whether belated compliance would affect either of the counts against him.

Bannon’s offer arrived less than 10 days before his contempt trial was slated to begin, on July 18. And he’s due in court Monday for a crucial hearing before U.S. District Court Judge Carl Nichols, who is weighing Bannon’s attempt to delay his trial until October. Nichols is also considering motions from Bannon that pertain to the Justice Department internal opinions and whether Costello — who advised Bannon not to comply with the select committee last year — can be a witness in his defense.

The offer is another last-minute wrinkle for the select committee from a high-level witness. Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes, who is facing a seditious conspiracy charge for his role in assembling the group in Washington on Jan. 6, said Friday he would waive his Fifth Amendment rights and testify if the committee allowed him to do it publicly.


Costello, too, said Bannon would prefer to testify publicly, but that appears to be a nonstarter.

Select committee member Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the committee received the letter from Costello “around midnight” but hadn’t yet had the chance to discuss it.

“I expect that we will be hearing from him,” she said. “And there are many questions that we have for him.”

Another panel member, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that investigators would be open to hearing from Bannon but that he wouldn’t be treated differently from any other witness.

“The way that we have treated every single witness is the same, that they come in, they talk to the committee there,” he said. “If they’re going to take a deposition, they’re sworn under oath. It’s videotaped. It’s recorded, and then we take it from there,”

A committee spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Bannon’s offer.
