Flotsam and Jetsam - Pence Has Secrets Too

Capt. Ed at Haut Hare, Classified material found in Pence's home -- after denials; UPDATE: Remember when? "Oh, goody. It turns out that the classified-material virus is spreading, and it’s still a bipartisan disease — at least among politicos."

The classified documents were discovered at Pence’s new home in Carmel, Indiana, by a lawyer for Pence in the wake of the revelations about classified material discovered in President Joe Biden’s private office and residence, the sources said. The discovery comes after Pence has repeatedly said he did not have any classified documents in his possession.

Ed Driscoll at Insty with DISPATCHES FROM THE STUPID PARTY: Mike Pence Joins the Scandal, ‘Finds’ Classified Documents at His House. “Is it really that difficult for Republicans to not constantly let their political opponents off the hook? This whole snatching defeat from the jaws of victory thing got old a long time ago. But you know what? Let’s have some consistency. Throw the book at Pence and Biden if they illegally possessed classified information." Ace, Mike Pence Says He's Got Classified Documents At His Home, Too. "Note he could have searched his home for classified documents when Trump was being blitzed by the Deep State, but said, "Nah, I'll just put that on my 'to-don't' list."" Sundance at CTH, Classified Documents Discovered at Mike Pence Home in Indiana "Something tells me at the end of this rainbow the omnipotent DC administrative statists and professional bureaucrats will have defined any/all documents to be classified material" and President Trump on Mike Pence Classified Docs Says, “Leave Him Alone.” "People are asking if President Trump is being sincere or trumpy sarcastic. The answer would appear to be, yes."

Dave Strom at Haut Hare remembers, It's true: Biden did threaten to leak classified information.

Capt. Ed explains Biden didn't "self-report" classified-material mishandling -- he got caught, and Jazz Shaw at Haut Hare snarks Ah, so it was Biden's "strategy" to have the FBI search his house "how did the FBI manage to find six more classified documents after Biden’s lawyers combed through the place for days? Are they really that bad at conducting a search or were those documents left there for a reason? And if it’s the latter, was the reason to help Biden or to try to usher him out the door more quickly?"

Lincoln Brown at PJ Media sees a Battle of the Boxes: GOP Demands Search of Biden's Senate Records. Ace, Merrick Garland Lies, Claiming There Is No Double Standard in the Treatment of His Political Enemy Trump and His Political Patron Biden. "Impeach this corrupt old f*ck."

Merrick Garland's orders regarding Trump's special counsel allow that prosecutor to investigate any matter and then use an all-but-unlimited budget to pursue investigations against him and bring any charges he likes.

The special counsel he authorized for Biden very strictly limits the prosecutor to only look into the matter of the hoarded classified documents. He's not allowed to look into Lunchbox Joe's China connection or any of his other crimes of influence-peddling and possible tax fraud.

“We received just a few weeks ago, January of 2023, the system log files from the tabulators that were used in Maricopa County on Election Day, along with the redacted CVR records. Through an analysis, we were able to determine that a quarter of a million ballot feeds [were] misread by those tabulators,” Busch explained. “There are approximately two tabulators in every polling Center, which means there were 446 tabulators with a quarter of a million voter attempt failures.”

So a quarter million same-day ballots were thrown out, while every effort was made to keep mail-in ballots with mismatching signatures and other problems in. Seems significant. 

Insty, CAN SOMEBODY EXPLAIN WHAT THE CLUB FOR GROWTH THINKS IT’S DOING HERE? Conservative group hopes to derail Daniels’ US Senate bid. "Daniels has actually been pretty radical in his education reforms while he was president of Purdue, and I’d love to see someone in the Senate who’d push that sort of an agenda. He seems like he’d win easily if he ran, and as far as I know he’s never been dismissive or condescending about the GOP base."

Jordan Boyd at Da Fed details How ‘The Twitter Files’ Undermine The J6 Report.

Did that include Brian Sicknick?" Ace follows up in Julie Kelly: Video Proves That the Capitol Police Sprayed Themselves With Tear Gas on January 6th. Did They Catch Brian Sicknick In the Blast, and Then Lie to Blame It On Their Political Enemies?
The government and media have been lying to us nonstop for seven fucking years, and they demand that we all believe their newest lies or they will use escalating legal harrassments against us. They've known about this. They covered it up. That's why they've been hiding video from that day -- they want a blank slate so that they can lie about the day's events without contradiction.

However, on the separate issue of blocking Ilhan Omar from sitting on committees (like Democrats did with MTJ and Paul Gossar) KT reports, GOP Rep. Spartz is a no vote on denying Omar seat on Foreign Affairs Committee

Speaker McCarthy has the power to unilaterally block Schiff and Swalwell from serving on the House Intelligence Committee. It is a select committee and he seats members on the committee. However, the Foreign Affairs Committee members are chosen by each party and ratified by the full House. We know Democrats will oppose McCarthy because they haven’t been bothered enough by Omar’s antisemitism to hold her accountable.

Noah Rothman at Commentary (cited at Haut Hare) says Stop calling debt negotiations "hostage taking."  Capt. Ed notes It’s “hostage taking” when the other side does it.
