January 6, hearing, let's do January 6. I'm not watching this (expletive). I know you're, I've watched a little bit on Twitter talk what I quote, followed a little bit on Twitter. Yeah, yeah. I also have not been watching the bulk of the hearings have been getting like synthesis and news accounts and social media. The clips and whatnot. And so, here's my take on it, writ large where I think a lot of Americans are. So, I'm in the camp that the interaction was very, very serious and lives were lost and people should be held accountable. I am also of the opinion that this set of hearings has become kind of this political theater that is not necessarily going to result in. Close to the Department of Justice, or legal, proceedings, against various, various, folks. I think some of the committee members have even said as much saying, like, oh, it's not our job to refer. And the unfortunate thing is that there are a couple ways. This could have gone. Number one, is you have a lot of responsible, Republicans raising their hands saying, hey and you have a handful. I mean you have like the leaders of the anti-trump and I was about to say wing of the party, but it's not a wing. I mean it It's literally like people it's so it's Liz Cheney is Adam. Kinzinger it sometimes, occasionally, someone else takes their head in. I mean, like the end and I do want to take a quick detour and say, look, There Were Ten, Republican house members who voted to impeach Trump. That number was, apparently 35 just hours before the vote, but they all got death threats via VIA text message. And then the number 135 to 3225 and then When it came down to the last 10, a lot of them weren't sure. What they were going to do because they were all getting so much pressure not to vote that way. So then 10 did vote that way and of those ten for have retired, including kinzinger one, just lost in South Carolina. So again, when you say like wing of the party you're talking about, at this point, there are literally only five house members and that number could go down pretty quick over this next period of time. So you don't have a truly Broad. The bipartisan approach to these hearings. It was you know, run for TV by essentially the Democratic party. And so to me like the single biggest question is like, will there be legal proceedings against various figures do? I personally think that there should be legal accountability. Yes, I do. Like you don't need to convince me of this stuff, like I know it was messed up the thing you need to. Convince me of is Is there going to be real accountability? Or are you just trying to make your case for public consumption?
