Kellyanne Conway talks with Jan. 6 committee for 5 hours; Trump has a freakout

On Monday, Donald Trump’s former senior adviser and lie machine Kellyanne Conway met with the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. It was unclear if she was compelled to meet with the committee or just dropped in after being asked to. 

Two sources told CNN that the interview with Conway went on for about five hours and included questions about reports that Donald Trump knew he had lost his election to Joe Biden, and continued to promote the Big Lie that the election was stolen. While this isn’t revelatory to anyone who understands what a cruel, dishonest, terrible person Donald Trump is, it is potentially an important piece of attestation concerning a most important fact: Trump knew he lost the election. All of his lying was not a result of delusional thinking, or because he was misled by wrong information.

That would make his assertion that the election was stolen or rigged against him a calculated lie that could only have have had one intention: overthrowing newly elected President Joe Biden. That’s sedition. That’s an attempted coup d’etat. That’s very possibly treason.

After leaving the Jan. 6 committee, Conway was predictably cagey about what she had or had not talked about for the previous five hours. When asked about whether or not Conway had spoken to the committee about Donald Trump’s understanding that he lost the election, Conway said, “I won’t talk about that because I may have talked about that here.”

One fun piece of information came when asked by reporters when she had last spoken with Golf-a-Lago-in-chief: “Last week he called me.” Had Conway mentioned she was planning on meeting with the committee when she spoke with him? “He doesn’t know that from me, he may know that from you.”

What’s the Donald been up to the last couple of hours? Posting witch hunt blather on his Truth Social account.

This fully weaponized monster, Jack Smith, shouldn’t be let anywhere near the political persecution of “President Donald J. Trump.” I did nothing wrong on January 6th, and nothing wrong with the Democrats’ fix on the Document Hoax, that is, unless the six previous Presidents did something wrong also….

And: 

….When will you invade Bill and Hillary’s home in search of the 33,000 emails she deleted AFTER receiving a subpoena from the U.S. Congress? When will you invade the other Presidents’ homes in search of documents, which are voluminous, which they took with them, but not nearly so openly and transparently as I did?

Let me translate the finer nuances here. The first block quote is Trump saying, ‘I’m innocent of Jan. 6, and also having top-secret documents stored away at Mar-a-Lago.’ The second block quote is Trump saying, ‘But her emails!’

He also posted some conspiracy theory about how special counsel Jack Smith is somehow a “globalist” who works for George Soros and former President Barack Obama. So: classic Trump freakout!
