Maybe he was one of Trump’s big strong guys that always want to hug him and weep?
You’re confusing cause and effect. They were already accustomed to being able to get away with committing crimes; that’s why it never occurred to them that they could get in trouble for the insurrection.
Hey man, it’s not like TX doesn’t have a lot of apologizing to do either: George W. Bush, Rick [“Oops”] Perry, Greg Abbott (who probably has presidential aspirations, heaven help us), Ken Paxton (who sues the U.S. gummint every minute he gets), the modern petroleum industry, Kenneth Lay, and cheese in a can.
I am a touch jealous we don’t have a Texan who is a Bigfoot scholar, but we do probably have a chupacabra scholar around here… somewhere…
Ah. But he can’t share it because it’s
A. Too terrifying
B. Top secret
C. Too complicated
Right? Dude smells like he has a book coming out.
He’s talking about all the text messages back and forth between the insurrectionists, Mark Meadows, Ginni Thomas, et al.
They all do… we’re drowning in BS books by BS people who participated in this coup… It’s enraging.
But if he’s got the goods, then let’s hope he’s sharing it with the right people who can ensure some consequences for this shit.
From the beginning…
Not only does he have a book, he’s releasing it the day before the commission’s final public broadcast to steal their thunder, and they’re pissed.

Such a gentleman.
It’s a bad day for insurrectionist Kyles.
Have they actually announced this will be the final hearing? I was under the impression that they left the process open-ended since so much new information continues to come to light.
Either way they recently announced they’ll be postponing the hearing due to the hurricane.
From the article:
Denver Riggleman, a former Republican congressman, is set to publish “The Breach” on Tuesday, just one day before the final public hearing of the Jan. 6 panel, which has gone to extraordinary lengths to prevent unauthorized leaks, as well as keep its sources and methods of investigation under wraps.
Per electoral-vote.com, they left it open for additional hearings, but the window’s closing.
Chair Bennie Thompson (D-MS) allows that there might still be another hearing after this one—sort of a “greatest hits” wrap-up—but that is not certain. The problem is that the Committee is running out of time. They’re not going to be able to force folks like Mike Pence and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to testify, and they need to compile their final report, while also campaigning for reelection (well, except for Reps. Liz Cheney, R-WY, and Adam Kinzinger, R-IL).
Further, one purpose of the committee was to warn Americans not to vote for pro-insurrectionist candidates in the midterms. Another was to arm-twist the Department of Justice into focusing on Donald Trump’s role in the insurrection. The latter goal certainly appears to have been achieved, while the former, one way or the other, will be moot as of Nov. 8. So, it would not be terribly surprising if, after the curtain comes down tomorrow, it stays down. (Z)
