The Jan. 6 Committee’s emergency hearing ended. The phone rang.

It was Anne: “Wow.”

Yes, and I Wowed back. That was absolutely the word for it.

All those men who said all those things because, though she never put it this way, a 25-year-old beautiful woman is invisible in the room against their power–until she speaks truth to that power.


Trump yanking the tablecloth and dumping everything, more than once? Yelling and shattering porcelain against the far wall when Barr thwarted him? His hands on the throat of his Secret Service driver? His unmet demand at the Ellipse that the magnetometers be taken down so that people not allowed into the rally because they’d have to give up their illegal-in-DC guns could come in and swell his crowd size? They were hanging around the edges, some up in trees with a good line of sight, flagrant in their numbers, awaiting the word.

Trump wanted to lead them to the Capitol (by car of course, he wasn’t going to walk) and the Secret Service wasn’t having it.

Those are visceral images that even the most far-right voter would recoil from after today’s revelations.

Every late member of my father’s generation who went to war to defend the free world has got to be up there cheering, You GO, girl!

Knowing how certain people react, pray for her safety and her future.

I had that same thought – she heard all this because she’s a young, attractive woman who the folks in power probably saw as window dressing. Instead, she’s a well-spoken, composed, clearly intelligent woman who absorbed everything going on around her. If that’s our future, we’re going to be ok. I agree with Anne, though – praying for her safety.

Are they planning witness protection???!!!

Yes, I so hope she is safe. I find it hilarious that The Former Guy insists he doesn’t know who she is. He’s never not noticed a woman.

Got him dead to rights on that one. He has never *not* noticed a woman.
I call shenanigans on that one. And of course so much more.
