    You don't know what you are talking about... so let me say it again
    Electoral Count Act 1887.... it was a law on the books.... educate yourself.... Trump did nothing wrong.

    You pull three quotes out of the thousands and call that proof of something. You have a lot to learn about statistics.

    Ex-staffer’s unauthorized book about Jan. 6 committee rankles members

    “He departed from the staff in April prior to our hearings and much of our most important investigative work,” wrote committee spokesman Tim Mulvey. “Since his departure, the Committee has run down all the leads and digested and analyzed all the information that arose from his work. We will be presenting additional evidence to the public in our next hearing this coming Wednesday, and a thorough report will be published by the end of the year.”

    Committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said on Sunday that the committee was “aware” of the call but could not say anything specific about it. “We are aware of lots of contacts between people in the White House and different people that were involved obviously in the coup attempt and the insurrection,” Raskin said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And that’s really what all of our hearings have been about. You know, we’ve had more than 20 hours explaining that this was an organized, coordinated attempt to subvert the electoral process.”

    Not surprisingly, Denver is sensationalizing parts of his book the committee is well aware of.

    Sorry, I don't watch videos and will never use them to make my arguments for me. Can you quote the text messages behind the claim?

    I am disappointed that Riggleman chose to prioritize his urge to tell his story over the oath he took to maintain the confidentiality of the January 6th committee inquiry.

    Your original comment wasn't clear. So, you are actually asking for a more in depth transcript so you should have stated what you wanted.

    If there was a transcript I would, but transcriptions I did were time consuming, and I'm not going to go through the entire video. His point was that the volume of texts, when you review them, overall, they led him to that conclusion.

    You should watch videos. You are missing out on a lot.

    It's not just a 'video' it's 60 minutes.

    Harping on his comment about the 9 second call really distorts what the video is about, which does not lead me to that conclusion at all. I know the media made a big stink about it.

    The article in the OP is nothing more than propaganda. If it wasn't, it wouldn't have been leaked to the media.

    I prefer to come to my own conclusion. I am not the one missing out. People spend hours focused on a screen and miss out on real life. When I get home, I rarely turn on a screen. There is so much more to life than watching others live.

    Supporting one's claim is not about statistics.

    You stated that you have never found any posts by me talking about Biden's policies, and I showed you three that

    positively refuted your claim.

    You see, it doesn't actually take more than three to refute your claim.

    In fact, one link would have refuted your claim.

    A fact which apparently has eluded you.


    You have a lot to learn about how to frame, and rebut to (given that you've failed to rebut), an argument.

    Ok, let's see them? Because I'll bet you good money that all they'll be is Al Gore style legal challenges to the election without any calls for violence or criminal activity?

    The man has been president for the better part of two years and those are his claims to fame? His negatives vastly outnumber his accomplishments.

    In fact one single negative accomplishment over shadows those. Just that disastrous withdraw from Afghanistan makes any accomplishments, real or imagined insignificant by comparison. By the way, the stock market just officially became a bear market.

    BTW. Have any of those actually done what they are supposed to?

    Trump and his people rallied to the insurrection. Even elected Republican officials took part in that insurrection.

    That has NOTHING to do with the Electoral Count Act.

    You think that is not a bombshell???

    What could POSSIBLY make that not a bombshell?

    Is it because evidence of assaults on our democracy by the Republican party have become so commonplace that you don't see additional evidence should be ignored as just not interesting anymore?

    A tea spoon of pleasant doesn't quell a truck load of hell.

    Sorry, your implication is insignificant.

    Then state why you think that act had anything to do with Jan 6.

    I am not the one trying to sell inciting insurrection. Even the "I heard trump say" quotes are nowhere close.

    Inadequate rebuttal: weasel words are not a merit worthy point, and, as such, constitute a non argument.

    Then why did Trump's lawyer admit that their plan violated the ECA and why did Trump's allies go to court to try to get the ECA declared unconstitutional?

    You're dodging the discussion because you know I'm right.
