Interesting segment on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show(04/19/22) looked into the intense pressure building on Senator Mike Lee(R-UT) from his hometown newspapers, for him to come clean over his involvement with efforts to assist former President Trump to overturn the 2020 elections, and specifically, his role in the fake electors scheme. As Maddow correctly pointed out, public statements attributed to Sen Lee regarding Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 elections are in stark contrast with his newly released private text messages, which clearly show his deep involvement with the fake electors scheme.
It appears Sen Lee’s hometown newspapers have seized on this glaring discrepancy between public “constitutional conservative” Mike Lee, and private insurrectionist Mike Lee, and are demanding that the Senator finally come clean about his involvement with Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 elections. The newspapers have zeroed in on the Utah State Republican Convention scheduled for Saturday(04/23/22, for Sen Lee to finally come clean about this issue.
Maddow referenced an editorial from a leading Utah newspaper(video at 4:15): “Just today, the Salt Lake Tribune has released a new editorial under this headline, Saturday’s Utah State Republican Convention would be a great place for Mike Lee to come clean…It’s past time for Mike Lee to start fessing up to all he knows about the plot to set aside the results of an honest and fair election in order to keep Donald Trump in power. We know Utah’s Senior Senator had a much greater role in that plot than he has previously acknowledged. His constituents deserve a much more detailed accounting of what went on and the extent of Senator Lee’s participation in it. Yesterday would be a great time for Senator Lee to come clean. Saturday’s State Republican Convention would be a really good opportunity for that too.”
Bottom line folks, it is very encouraging to see the media in Utah pressuring Senator Lee to come clean about his involvement with Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election. To date, there has been been very little individual accountability for members of Congress who were clearly involved in Trump’s illegal efforts to overturn the 2020 elections and hopefully, this is the beginning of some much overdue reckoning for members of Congress. It would be great if Texas newspapers would also inquire into whether public “constitutional conservative” Ted Cruz was likewise, a private insurrectionist.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow recently did a bombshell segment in which she exposed what appears to be a blatant corruption case involving General Services Administration’s Emily Murphy and President Trump who appointed her to run that federal agency. The full maddow segment is available here but the relevant clip is below.
According to Maddow the entire corruption scheme revolves around plans to build a new FBI building to replace the old and dilapidated one that currently sits only a few blocks from Trump Hotel DC.It turns out the original plan was to abandon the current FBI site and instead build a sprawling state of the art FBI complex at some suburban DC location. The developer would then be allowed to tear down the current dilapidated FBI building that sits a few blocks from Trump Hotel DC and use that prime real estate location to develop any property of their choice.
It was well known that among the properties that would be developed in this prime real estate location would be a high end hotel–and therein lies the whole corruption scheme. The idea that there were plans to build a new high end hotel only a few blocks from Trump Hotel DC was one that clearly didn’t sit well with Trump and as you might have guessed already, the original plan to build a new sprawling FBI complex in suburban DC was abruptly scrapped and replaced with a new plan to tear down the old FBI building and build a new one at the same location.
Naturally all the alarms went off with this dramatic change of plans regarding where to build the new FBI building with Dems questioning the GSA Administrator whether Trump ordered her to make this decision. In her testimony before congress, GSA Administrator Emily Smith said the dramatic change in plans was entirely an FBI decision and had nothing to do with Trump.
Well there is concrete evidence now proving that the GSA Administrator made a bold faced lie to congress and that Trump indeed ordered her to make the dramatic change in plans regarding the location of the new FBI building–a clear cut conflict of interest for Trump. There is no question that this was a decision made to benefit Trump Hotel DC–the quintessential government corruption.
Bottom line GSA head Emily Murphy needs to be held accountable. Under normal times the stunning revelation by Maddow alone would have been enough to shame her into resignation. But given the current political climate we find ourselves in, there is no likelihood of that happening. Dems and the mainstream media must therefore demand that GSA Administrator Emily Murphy be held accountable not just for her blatant corrupt actions but also because she made a bold faced lie to congress–a felony.
