This should be fun:

Better late than never, I suppose.  Though I doubt it will do any good for those folks still languishing in DC jails without charges at this point.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Or those serving years-long sentences for conviction on a first-offense misdemeanor charge.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

    During January 6 Hearing, Schiff Doctored Text Messages Between Mark Meadows And Rep. Jim Jordan https://t.co/uSKVmSph81

    — Sean Davis (@seanmdav) February 21, 2023

Quote
From The Federalist:

    Oops, he did it again. After leaking fake Donald Trump, Jr. emails, fabricating the transcript of a 2019 phone call between former President Donald Trump and Ukraine’s president, and lying about his interactions with the so-called whistleblower behind House Democrats’ first impeachment of Trump, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is now running the same con against a fellow lawmaker. During a hearing Monday night on the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Adam Schiff claimed to have proof that a member of Congress texted former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to instruct former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 presidential election results.

    Not only did Schiff misrepresent the substance of the text message and its source, he even doctored original text messages, which were obtained and reviewed by The Federalist in their entirety.

 Doctored texts?! No WONDER Adam Schiff is nervous about J6 footage (he SHOULD BE)

At what point do such actions qualify as criminal?  Fraud seems appropriate.  It’s more civil than criminal but defamation/slander/libel for sure would be easy, even with needing to prove “actual malice” when a public figure is the target.

I see they got started early on the "deceptively edited" narrative.

I'm hoping that they release the raw footage to anyone, so that editing can be checked regardless of who is doing the editing.

I wonder if that video they released early last year will be included.  The one that showed that one officer leading masked "protestors" up stairs and such.

At this point I firmly believe that ALL J6 protesters that weren’t violent should get a full and complete pardon, and even the violent ones should get commutations of their sentences.

I'm cracking up (though I should be angry) that they're gaslighting the footage. Claims that raw, unedited footage is "manipulating" the video evidence. Because you know, with our betters not editing the videos to what they feel is appropriate for us to see is manipulation. Stupid public who think they can make up their own mind based on untouched footage. The nerve of us.

It is like 1984, but not in the way they think. 

The truth is a lie.  Lies are the truth.  Unedited video is a lie.  Selectively edited videos are the truth.

Yeah.  And the police who started the violence by firing tear gas into peaceful crowds should be charged.

We should probably also look at the police beating videos that are coming out now. Whole cities rioted when those types of beatings took place elsewhere against a different demographic.

Listen to the whole thing, but it gets VERY interesting at 0:50. The J6 committee's researchers left bookmarks throughout the video footage of what they watched, which included information refuting the edited footage that the committee released to the public.

I recall that in a libel/slander trial during pre-Revolution times in the American Colonies, truth was no defense - in fact telling the truth about bad actions of Crown officials was worse than lying, since truthfully pointing out their bad acts would diminish them in the eyes of the public.

Seems like history is repeating itself - I keep picturing Schumer in a powdered wig and speaking with a British accent whilst wearing a red coat . . .
