Yesterday's flash in the pan story was Preznit Biden calling Fox White White House correspondent Peter Doocy at stupid son of a bitch into an open mike, when Doocy shouted an unwelcome question about inflation. I have to break my no twitter rule again:
A reminder from Townhall.com @townhallcom "Joe Biden in January of 2021: "But I'm not joking when I say this, if you are ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot." Needless to say he didn't resign. Dooce took it in stride, Sister Toldja at Red State, Peter Doocy Has Appropriate Response to Biden Attack as Other ‘Reporters’ Show True Colors "“So Doocy, I think the president’s right, you are a stupid SOB,” co-host Jesse Watters quipped. . . .“Yeah, nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true,” Doocy replied." At Twitchy, Peter Doocy tells Sean Hannity what Biden said to him during phone call after ‘stupid son of a b*tch’ insult. It's Nothing personal, pal! Meanwhile, the media that had hissy fits when Trump was nasty to their guys (although, I don't believe he ever swore), went into Biden protective mode. Twitchy, ‘CNN has received the talking points’: President Joe Biden ‘deadpanned’ that stupid SOB line about Peter Doocy.

This is an article in the NYT, which I'm reading because what I hope is that the material will show that Trump wasn't involved in planning or promoting breaking into the Capitol or committing any illegal acts. And isn't that what everyone should hope?
So I'm reading this article and setting to the side everything that is about Trump's belief that he really did win the election, his search for a legal path to victory, and his desire for a big, exciting rally showing strong support for this cause.
So, what does the NYT list? I've copied and pasted the whole text into my compose window, and I will now cut out everything I just said I was setting to the side:
Leaving nothing, literally. AllahPundit whines Gingrich: When Republicans take back the House, January 6 committee members will be at risk of jail BizPac, Newt says J6 Committee could face real risk of jail when GOP is back in power, Cheney leads response.
“You’re going to have a Republican majority in the House and a Republican majority in the Senate and all these people who’ve been so tough and so mean and so nasty are going to be delivered subpoenas for every document, every conversation, every tweet, every email, because I think it’s clear these are people who are literally just running over the law, pursuing innocent people, causing them to spend thousands and thousands of dollars in legal fees for no justification and its basically a lynch mob and unfortunately the attorney general of the United States has joined that lynch mob and is totally misusing the FBI,”I don't think there's any risk of jail, as long as they hire expensive lawyer and answer to the subpoenas. Donald Trump Jr.@DonaldJTrumpJr, "Liz Cheney & her Dem friends are using the J6 Committee as a weapon to target & harass their political opponents. Straight out of the Communist playbook!!! Congress's 1/6 Committee Claims Absolute Power as it Investigates Citizens With No Judicial Limits." Stephen Kruiser at PJ Media warns GOP Dreams of Election Victory Revenge-Porn Are a Bit Premature. I agree.At Big League Politics, The Dersh says Jan 6 Committee ‘Reminds Me Of McCarthyism’. As Sauron's eye, Former Attorney General William Barr has spoken to January 6 committee. Hollywood In Toto thinks ‘J6’ Is Hollywood’s Attempt to Stop Trump 2.0. Of course it is. Truth has nothing to do with Hollywood. On Da Hill, Jan. 6 probe roils Cheney race in Wyoming. She is working hard for Democrat votes because she won't be getting many Republicans'.
“And I think when you have a Republican Congress, this is all going to come crashing down,” he added. “And the wolves are going to find out that they’re now sheep and they’re the ones who are in fact, I think, face a real risk of jail for the kinds of laws they’re breaking.”
