Today’s show focuses primarily on Thursday’s televised hearings conducted by the United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack. The big takeaway is new and overwhelming evidence that January 6 was an inside job and that Representative Scott Perry, Republican of Pennsylvania and Representative Andy Biggs, Republican of Arizona along with several other Republican members of congress conspired to overturn the election and then, after January 6th, asked Donald Trump for a presidential pardon before he left office.
