Ivanka Trump returns to Instagram with a photoshoot pretending to be a good person

Last year, Gorsuch claimed at a conference that his colleagues “really love each other, respect each other and listen to each other”, although love and respect apparently do not extend, in his case, to wearing a piece of fabric over his face, so his colleague can avoid getting a potentially deadly virus.

The January 6 subpoena convenes Trump’s happy bunch of independent election attorneys

“The four people we have convened today put forward unsupported theories of electoral fraud, pushed for efforts to overturn the election result or were in direct contact with the former president about trying to stop the counting of electoral votes,” the chairman said. Bennie Thompson said in a statement referring to Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, and Boris Epshteyn which, in fact, in a way underscored the lengths that the group was trying to convince the public that the election was fraught with fraud. (Powell, for one, negotiated a conspiracy theory linking the alleged stolen election to Hugo Chavez, the late former dictator of Venezuela.)

In a letter regarding the subpoenas, Thompson quoted Giuliani’s attempts to persuade state lawmakers to overturn the election result, his call for Trump to seize voting machines across the country, and his contact with the then president in the days leading up to January 6 “in terms of strategies. “to delay or overturn the results of the 2020 election.”

Robert Costello, Giuliani’s lawyer, told Washington Post on Tuesday, he will review the lawsuit, but argued that there are major legal barriers to Giuliani actually cooperating. “It should be obvious, even to a non-lawyer like Bennie Thompson, that in addition to executive privilege, we have attorney-client privilege, and as far as I know, Donald Trump has not relinquished that privilege,” Costello said. “The reality is that this is just more political theater from the committee.” For his part, Giuliani had his lawyer’s license suspended in June last year for making “demonstrably false and misleading statements.”
