So last week, at a cost of ??? millions of taxpayer $$$, our intelligence agencies released a report that revealed…
Oh, wait, are you sitting down? Do you think your heart is strong enough to stand the shock? Well, OK, if you’re sure, here it is:
Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved (you may gasp here) the brutal murder, dismemberment and poofing (nary a fingernail has ever been found) of U.S. resident and Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi because MBS was butt-hurt that Khashoggi was critical of his country.
Like every other crime during the Trump years, from Day One we knew exactly who had to be behind this. What pisses me off is I haven’t seen a word addressing why Trump and sonny-boy Jared Kushner continued to cozy up to MBS like their BFF.
In particular, I want to know — to the PENNY — how much largesse in the aftermath of Khashoggi’s death MBS lavished on Kushner for his unwavering devotion.
As with everything else Trump has befouled, Biden must clean up this mess and hold MBS to account, for whatever that’s worth, because it’s all moot at this point.
Yet again, Trump and Kush face no penalty for abetting a murder because Trump made sure he left our federal justice system a smoldering ruin that lacks the manpower or will to go after him.
It makes me wish I lived in France. They just nailed their former president, Nicolas Sarkozy, and sentenced him to a year in prison, with two more years suspended.
What galls me is that the charges Sarkozy got convicted on sound like a typical day in the Oval Office for Trump. But since Trump and Bill Barr made our Justice Department an extension of their own criminality, Trump’s probably laughing his ass off that Sarkozy was dumb enough to get caught.
CATS WORKING PREDICTION TIME…
Congress is yakking about establishing a “9/11-style” commission to investigate the January 6 sacking of the Capitol. Naturally, Trump’s Treason Cult (a.k.a. Republicans) are clamoring to make it partisan, with an equal number of their ilk on board so they can sabotage it to a fare-thee-well.
Should that commission happen — and let’s face it, it will because it allows Congress kick that can into the gutter and keep traitors like Hawley and Cruz in their midst for another year or two — it should have NO politicians, just impartial, experienced investigators who will uncover nothing but the facts.
I know, what have I been smoking, right?
But I’m going to leap ahead and potentially save years and ??? millions of taxpayer $$$ by revealing what the 1/6/21 report will conclude, right here, right now. Ready?
Someone in the White House — on Trump’s direct order — commanded someone at the Pentagon to do NOTHING on January 6 and let the riot run its course. Trump was super-stoked because he’d been hyping on Twitter for weeks how “wild” that day was going to be. He’d even erected a tent on the White House grounds to host his pre-riot party.
Trump was jonesing to see how high his speech would jack his cult, and how far they’d go to show their fealty. Then he’d watch it all on TV live as it happened. The more people they murdered on camera, the better.
Having more police or the National Guard there would just ruin everything, and Trump refused to allow that to happen.
Getting Congress — and maybe even Mike Pence — whacked as Trump headed out the door would be the crowning glory of his presidency. If he couldn’t remain in power, at least he could have revenge.
That’s the bottom line. And we all know Trump will never be convicted or spend a moment in prison for inciting insurrection because he made treason fashionable and Congress is fine with that.
