Peter Navarro is an arrogant little toad who fucked around and found out
plus Fani Willis yours-in-services the shit out of Jim Jordan
it’s so easy to not get convicted of contempt of Congress.
all you have to do is wake up in the morning, get dressed, check the time and date on the subpoena you received, and show up to testify.
but this simple act of obeying the law was a bridge too far for Peter Navarro — and now he’s fucked.
you see, Peter Navarro, that exemplar of entitled white male mediocrity, believes that your puny laws don’t apply to him. like all members of the former Trump administration — hell, like all Republicans — Navarro does not believe in the rule of law.
no, Peter Navarro is a firm believer in the rule of “because fuck you, that’s why.”
it’s a handy little rule.
“because fuck you, that’s why” is the reason it’s ok for Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito to accept
bribes gifts from plutocrats whose cases are before them.
“because fuck you, that’s why” is the reason it’s ok for hack judge Matthew Kacsmaryk to ban mifepristone, despite its 20-year record of effectiveness.
and “because fuck you, that’s why” is the reason it’s ok for Peter Navarro to hide behind a shield of imaginary executive privilege and blow off a subpoena to appear before the January 6th Committee.
well it’s bad news for you, Executive Privilege Pete, because a jury of your peers just rejected the whole “because fuck you, that’s why” thing and found you guilty of contempt of Congress.
and you have no one to blame but yourself. you could have shown up. you could have told the truth about what you knew. hell, you could even have kept your arrogant mouth shut, just as your co-traitors Rog Stone and Mike Flynn did, and Fifth Amendmented the fuck out of the whole thing.
that would have been so easy, and right now you could be back to doing whatever the hell it is you do with your entitled little life — and not up to your neck in legal bills, looking at a stretch in prison.
just do your duty and show the fuck up.
of course, there’s a good chance that Navarro will remain infuriatingly free while he appeals his conviction, just as that deteriorating bag of dog shit Steve Bannon remains free while appealing his own contempt of Congress conviction.
but here’s what you really want to know: was Anarchy Princess on the scene?
FUCK YES, SHE WAS.
on CNN, no less.
oh, and pro tip: if they can convict Peter Navarro for blowing off a subpoena, they can convict Jim Jordan for blowing off a subpoena. this isn't rocket science.
Fani shows Gymmy Jords how it’s done
useless pantload Jim Jordan is learning the hard way that you absolutely do not fuck with Fani “Yours In Service” Willis.
Jordan, you’ll recall, is trying his best to interfere with Willis’s Big Georgia Election Fuckery Trial, demanding that Fani produce documents no later than yesterday.
Prosecutor to Jim Jordan: ‘You lack a basic understanding of the law’
Fani Willis could've simply ignored Jim Jordan. Instead, the prosecutor told the Judiciary Committee chairman that he doesn't know what he's talking about.
to be fair, Jim Jordan lacks a basic understanding of how to dress, so can we really expect him to have a basic undertanding of the law?
“Its obvious purpose is to obstruct a Georgia criminal proceeding and to advance outrageous misrepresentations,” Willis wrote, referring to Jordan’s letter from two weeks ago. “As I make clear below, there is no justification in the Constitution for Congress to interfere with a state criminal matter, as you attempt to do.”
The Fulton County prosecutor went on to tell the Judiciary Committee chairman, “Your letter makes clear that you lack a basic understanding of the law, its practice and the ethical obligations of attorneys generally and prosecutors specifically.”
Gymmy Jords went to a fifth-rate law school and never passed the bar exam. he has no business chairing the House Judiciary Committee, and Fani Willis just showed us all why.
holy shit, the Fifth Circuit suuuuuuuuuuuucks
that motley gaggle of Federalist Society shitiologues known as the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is up to their evil bullshit again, telling Greg Abbott that it’s ok for his razor wire death traps to remain in the Rio Grande for now.
It was a short-lived victory for the federal government over Texas’ anti-migrant border buoys.
The day after U.S. District Judge David Ezra ordered the removal of the 1,000 foot string of buoys, the conservative Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency stay.
In the ruling, the New Orleans-based three-judge panel did not give a reason for why it granted the State of Texas' request. The appellate court has not yet set a date for a hearing.
and so Sadistic Greg’s floating death machines will remain in place while this all works its way through the courts.
heck of a job, Fifth Circuit. don’t forget to wash the blood off your hands.
