Rep Jim Jordan’s Shifty Answers About His Convos With Trump On January 6th

CNN’s Brianna Keilar did an interesting segment on her New Day show (10/21/2021), where she explored Rep Jim Jordan’s very shifty answers to questions about his conversations with then President Trump on January 6th 2021. It appears Rep Jim Jordan’s accounts of his conversations with Trump on that fateful day appear to be changing with every subsequent interview, meaning he may be hiding, or attempting to hide some details about his interactions with Trump on that day.

After stating categorically in previous interviews that he spoke to Trump on January 6th, but only after the insurrection, the Ohio Congressman appears to be changing his tune lately, suggesting that he spoke to Trump on January 6th, but he doesn’t know “when those conversations happened.” Basically, he now doesn’t remember whether he spoke to Trump before or after the insurrection.

Any reasonable person presented with Rep Jim Jordan’s conflicting statements as to whether he spoke to Trump before or after the January 6th insurrection will arrive at the same conclusion, and that is, Rep Jim Jordan is attempting to hide details of his January 6th conversations with Trump from the public. Rep Jordan’s phone records on January 6th can solve this mystery instantly.

Bottom line folks, one doesn’t have to be an experienced investigator to deduce from the CNN segment that Rep Jordan should be a person of interest for the January 6th Commission. Maybe, just maybe, he’ll remember the exact time he spoke to Trump on January 6th, if he is forced to testify under oath.

Top DOJ Official Drafted Letter Bolstering Trump’s Election Fraud Claims

Jeffrey Clark, Former Acting Head Of DOJ’s Civil Division Under President Trump

A shocking report on MSNBC’s Ali Velshi show(08/15/2021) says that Jeffrey Clark, the former head of the Department of Justice’s Civil Division, drafted a letter that he intended to send to the Republican-led Georgia legislature, which would have bolstered Trump’s false claim that the 2020 election results in Georgia were somehow fraudulent, thereby laying the groundwork for Trump to overturn the state’s results. If this reporting holds up, it will be one of Trump’s most egregious abuses of the Department of Justice, and grounds for an immediate investigation into Jeffrey Clark’s entire tenure at the department.

Host Velshi said:“The ex-President[Trump] was particularly obsessed with trying to overturn Biden’s victory in Georgia, and he managed to find someone who would help him do that. Enter Jeffrey Clark..He’s the former acting head of the Justice Department’s Civil Division…Clark’s scheme involved plans to send letters to the Republican-led Georgia legislature, claiming that the Justice Department was investigating possible voter fraud in Georgia. This was a lie, but Clark drafted those letters in a way that would have made them seem legitimate, with a Department of Justice letterhead up on the top…That letter would have laid the groundwork for Republicans in the state of Georgia to essentially invalidate as many votes as they wanted to, in order to overturn the will of the Georgia’s voters, and falsely declare the ex-President the winner.”

The letter would have read like this.

Velshi added that the reason Clark’s letter was never sent to the Georgia legislature, is that a few people at DOJ refused to go along with his potentially criminal scheme, and that then Acting AG Jeffrey Rosen, and his number two Richard Donoghue, also refused to sign off on Clark’s scheme.

Bottom line folks, Americans are increasingly getting impatient with U.S. Attorney General Garland’s seeming reluctance to go after crooks, both at DOJ and other federal agencies, who were complicit in Trump’s demonstrable corruption. As host Velshi correctly put it, “currently there are no legislative or legal guardrails in place that would prevent a scheme like Clark’s to be launched again in the future, which is why he and the other of the ex-President’s enablers must be held to account.” Americans turned out in record numbers, and stood in long lines at the polls, with the hope that a Biden administration would deal with the crooks who abused their government positions to aid and abet Trump. It is high time the Biden administration, and especially Garland’s DOJ, meet the voters halfway.

NYT’s Maggie Haberman Ensnared In Feud Over Trump Inaugural Funds

Melania Trump with Stephanie Winston Wolkoff

In case you missed it, the Trump inaugural saga has taken a new, and very interesting twist lately, with now Twitter-active Stephanie Winston Wolkoff taking a direct shot at Maggie Haberman and Ken Vogel of the New York Times(NYT), as being part of the plot to throw her under the bus.

You’ll remember that after the bombshell revelation that a staggering $40 million of Trump’s inaugural funds had mysteriously disappeared, there was an effort by Trump’s allies to pin the blame on then First Lady Melania Trump’s Senior Advisor Stephanie Winston Wolkoff. Stephanie Wolkoff talked about this effort to throw her under the bus at an appearance on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show on September 1, 2020.

In the interview, a visibly upset Stephanie Wolkoff told host Maddow, that then First Lady Melania Trump basically told her she had to be the fall person for the Trump inaugural scandal. Wolkoff specifically said, “Melania and the [Trump]White House had accused me of criminal activity, then publicly shamed and fired me, and made me their scapegoat. At that moment in time, that’s when I pressed record. She was no longer my friend, and she was willing to let them take me down, and she told me herself, that this is the way it has to be. She was advised by the attorneys at the White House that there was no other choice because there was a possible investigation into the presidential inauguration committee….At first I really did think maybe she would come to my aid? Maybe she would tell the truth? She turned her back, she did. She folded like a deck of cards., and I’m shocked she did it.”

This 05/23/2021 tweet however, shows that Stephanie Wolkoff is not only going after Trump and his allies in her effort to set the record straight regarding Trump’s inaugural, she’s also calling out NYT’s Maggie Haberman and Ken Vogel, as being part of the plot to destroy her. This, if proven, could turn out to be a huge scandal unto itself, given the fact that many liberals still blame the New York Times for Trump’s ascension to the White House. Specifically, many liberals believe NYT’s excessive coverage of the “email scandal”, weakened Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the final stretch of the 2016 campaign.

There’s no other way any reasonable person can interpret Stephanie Wolkoff’s tweet other than NYT’s Haberman and Vogel were doing Trump’s bidding when they wrote the referenced piece. This is especially so considering Wolkoff’s invocation of “SETUP. COVERUP. TAKEDOWN” in her tweet. For the record, accusations of “access journalism” against then White House reporter for the New York Times, Maggie Haberman, persisted throughout Trump’s presidency. Stephanie Wolkoff is not the first person drawing that inference.

Bottom line folks, Yours Truly is not accusing Maggie Haberman or Ken Vogel of any wrongdoing. By all accounts, these are serious journalists, who exhibit a high level of professionalism(my personal opinion). What Yours Truly is simply pointing out, is what any reasonable person presented with Stephanie Wolkoff’s recent tweet would conclude, and that is, Haberman and Vogel were in on the plot by Trump’s allies to throw her under the bus. It would be in everybody’s interest, especially Wolkoff who suffered greatly as a result of the Trump inaugural saga, if Haberman, Vogel or even the New York Times management, addressed this issue.

Who Is Caroline Wren, The Shadowy Trump Insider Behind DC Insurrection?

On the right is an image of Caroline Wren from an October 2018 Politico piece celebrating her birthday

As the stories about the January 6th DC insurrection keep coming out, and the public keeps inquiring about the people who may have orchestrated the event, the name Caroline Wren, a Trump insider and fundraiser, keeps popping up. Caroline Wren apparently played a very significant role in organizing Trump’s January 6th rally, which ultimately led to the infamous insurrection at the Capitol building. Like many political operatives in Washington, Wren maintains a low public profile, and is therefore relatively unknown to people outside Washington, DC. Politico however featured her birthday in October 2018, proving without a doubt, that she is a mover and shaker in DC political circles.

A January 30th ProPublica piece , which delved into people in Trump’s orbit who were intricately involved in the planning of his January 6th rally, has shed more light into shadowy Caroline Wren’s political activities, and importantly, established Wren as the central planner of the rally. Below is an excerpt from the ProPublica piece.

From what we can piece up from this ProPublica piece about Caroline Wren, she served as a deputy to Kimberly Guilfoyle at Trump Victory, a joint presidential fundraising committee during the 2020 campaign. Kimberly as you know, is Donald Trump Jr’s girlfriend. According to ProPublica, much of the planning for Trump’s January 6th rally was originally in the hands of one Cindy Chafian. Ms. Chafian was however abruptly pushed aside after a Publix Six Markets heiress, Julie Jenkins Fancelli, committed $300,000 to the event, on condition that Caroline Wren was made the main event planner. Heiress Fancelli essentially booted out Cindy Chafian for Caroline Wren, an issue that begs for further scrutiny by the mainstream media. Interestingly, right wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who is currently under investigation over his role in the insurrection, was also involved in the decision to ditch Cindy Chafian for Caroline Wren.

There’s also an interesting tidbit from this Twitter handle “The Warning Bell”, which shows Caroline Wren’s close ties to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and defense contractors. Senator Graham as you know, is a very close ally of former President Trump. As a matter of fact, a plausible argument can be made that it was Senator Graham, together with Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who gave birth to the “stop the steal” movement, given the way they egged Trump on to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election immediately after it became apparent that Trump was headed for defeat. Did Caroline Wren’s ties to Lindsey Graham and defense contractors have anything to do with the strange insistence that she be the primary organizer of Trump’s January 6th rally? Is this why there were a lot of military undertones at the insurrection?

Bottom line folks, there is no question that the January 6th DC Insurrection was a carefully orchestrated conspiracy, even though it failed to achieve it’s ultimate goal of overthrowing the U.S. government. Where, as here, Caroline Wren appears to have been a key player in the organization and financing of the event that led to the insurrection, reasonable people will agree that the FBI needs to seriously interrogate her. There have been reports that there was a meeting at Trump’s DC hotel on the night of Jan 5th, featuring some of Trump’s most ardent supporters. Did Caroline Wren attend this meeting? Was this the final “huddle up” before the January 6th insurrection? Simply put folks, Caroline Wren must be confronted with these, and many other questions related to the DC insurrection. You can rest assured that unlike the short-attention-spanned mainstream media, Yours Truly, your trusted dog hound, will annoyingly dig into Caroline Wren’s role in DC insurrection, until we get to the bottom of it.

Unpatriotic GOP Members Of House Intel Committee Should Resign

Rep Mike Conaway(R-TX)

On July 3, 2018 a bipartisan Senate Intel Committee concluded without any reservations that Russia did interfere in the 2016 elections to help Trump and his GOP. The bipartisan Senate Intel Committee essentially affirmed the conclusion of virtually all U.S. Intel agencies regarding Russian meddling in the 2016 elections so this was by no means “bombshell” news.


A few months earlier however a totally partisan House Intel Committee led by Rep Devin Nunes and Rep Mike Conaway abruptly concluded with the very strange finding that Russia did interfere, but not to help the Trump campaign–a totally bogus finding meant only to shield President Trump and hide the truth about Russian meddling from the American public.

Now that the Senate Intel Committee has come up with a credible report, these GOP members of Congress should be called out for their shameful actions. That a sitting member of the U.S. Congress would go out of their way to stonewall an investigation into a hostile foreign power(Russia) interfering with our elections is inexcusable. Even more troubling, some if not all of these GOP members of Congress are running for re-elections this Midterms 2018. One wonders why someone would aspire to be a member of the U.S. Congress when you are giving aid and comfort to the enemy–in this case our deadliest enemy.

Bottomline Dems should demand that the shameful GOP members of the House Intel Committee resign because their unpatriotic actions regarding TrumpRussia investigation render them unfit for office.

Trump, The Subject Of Mueller Probe Cannot Nominate A SCOTUS Justice. Can He?


Dem Senator Corey Booker is advancing a novel legal theory(#BookerTheory), a brilliant one as far as Yours Truly is concerned, arguing that because Trump is the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation (TrumpRussia), his nomination of a Supreme Court Justice to replace retiring Justice Kennedy creates an unacceptable conflict of interest. Senator Booker made the argument when he appeared on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show.


According to Senator Booker, this is unacceptable because it boils down to Trump appointing a Supreme Court Justice for the specific purpose of helping him with the TrumpRussia investigation. There’s a very realistic chance that at some point, TeamTrump will challenge an aspect of Mueller probe in federal court, especially a subpoena for his testimony. Such a challenge would most likely end up in the Supreme Court to be adjudicated by Trump’s Supreme Court pick. Senator Booker’s argument is that this creates an unacceptable conflict of interest that may further tarnish the image of the Roberts Supreme Court.

It’s also worth pointing out that no previous U.S. President has nominated a Supreme Court justice while under criminal investigation. This is probably the strongest argument in the #BookerTheory because simply put, we’ve never been here before. The founding fathers never envisioned that someone engaged in or suspected of criminal conduct would ever rise to be President.

The fact that we are in unchartered waters means there is no Supreme Court precedent establishing Trump’s ability to nominate a Supreme Court justice under these circumstances but more importantly, creates a fertile ground for a legal challenge testing Senator Booker’s novel legal theory.

While Dems are engaged in an all out warfare with Republicans over whether Trump’s Supreme Court nominee should be seated before or after the midterms, maybe they should step aside and give serious consideration to the #BookerTheory–whether the ongoing Mueller probe precludes Trump from making the said Supreme Court nomination in the first place. Brace yourselves folks it’s Bush v Gore all over again.
