    Me too! I watched part of the video and it also looked like he was wearing diapers under his backwards pants. And slurring his words, and not making much sense. Everything trump accused Biden of actually applies to trump.

    I didn't listen to his speech, but it sure didn't look like his pants had a zipper. If he's wearing some kind of incontinence undergarment (rumor is that he has something specially made), then zippered pants might be difficult to use. So maybe he's wearing pull-up pants with a gathered waistband with a belt over the waistband. The comments about his speech mentioned that he slurred his words, lacked his usual energy and just said all the usual stuff he talks about.

    All true. He sounded like he was on something, or demented, or both. The repubs are truly crazy if they want to stay hitched to his wagon.

    Seizure of Democrats' Apple data by Trump officials to be investigated



    The US justice department will investigate attempts by officials in the Trump administration to seize the phone records of leading Democrats.

    The internal probe comes after reports that the department ordered Apple to release data as part of efforts to track down who was leaking information.

    Two House Intelligence Committee members said they had been told records of their iPhone calls were handed over.

    An official at the Biden White House criticised the actions as "appalling".

    Prosecutors under former Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued subpoenas - or orders to submit evidence - to Apple requesting data in 2017 and early 2018, according to the New York Times.

    They were reportedly looking for the source of news reports about contacts between Russia and associates of Republican President Donald Trump, a matter that was then the subject of congressional investigations, including by the House Intelligence Committee.





    Justice department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said his office was beginning a review of the "use of subpoenas and other legal authorities to obtain communication records" of members of Congress. He said the investigation could expand if "other issues" arise.

    His announcement came after Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and Judiciary Committee chairman Dick Durbin said Mr Sessions and William Barr, who was also attorney general under President Trump, must testify or face a subpoena.

    Speaking to Politico, Mr Barr said that while he ran the department he was "not aware of any congressman's records being sought in a leak case." The subpoenas were issued before his tenure, according to the New York Times.

    Two members of Congress - Representative Adam Schiff, now the Intelligence Committee's chairman, and committee member Eric Swalwell - are known to have been targeted.

    Mr Schiff said the investigation was "just the start", and called for a broader look at the "abuse of power targeting Congress and the press" by President Trump's justice department.

    Although the department routinely conducts investigations into leaked information, drawing members of Congress into such an inquiry is rare, BBC North America correspondent David Willis says.

    None of the data seized tied any of the Democrats, their aides or their family members to the leaks, the New York Times said.

    The department also managed to get a gag order to stop Apple from telling those involved, the paper said. That order only expired this year, and Apple reportedly told the targets last month.

    Last month, multiple media outlets reported that justice department officials secretly obtained some of their journalists' phone records in 2017. The department later said that it would stop seizing reporters data during leak investigations.

    FBI chief calls Capitol attack domestic terrorism and rejects Trump’s fraud claims


    Christopher Wray faces grilling from Democratic lawmakers over lead-up to 6 January insurrection

    Guardian staff and agencies
    Fri 11 Jun 2021 00.35 BST


    The FBI director, Christopher Wray, has said that the bureau considers the 6 January Capitol attack an act of “domestic terrorism” and suggested that “serious charges” were still to come in its continuing criminal investigation.
    Testifying before Congress on Thursday, the director rubbished Donald Trump’s claims about a stolen presidential election. “We did not find evidence of fraud that could have changed the outcome of the election,” he told lawmakers on the House judiciary committee.
    Wray’s testimony came as federal prosecutors charged six members of a rightwing militia group with conspiring to storm the Capitol, the latest in a series of such charges arising from 6 January.



    Democratic lawmakers repeatedly grilled Wray, appointed by Trump in 2017, over what they said were intelligence failures that left law enforcement ill-prepared for the deadly attack.
    “The FBI’s inaction in the weeks leading up to January 6 is simply baffling,” said Jerry Nadler, the House judiciary committee chairman. “It is hard to tell whether FBI headquarters merely missed the evidence – which had been flagged by your field offices and was available online for all the world to see – or whether the bureau saw the intelligence, underestimated the threat, and simply failed to act.”
    A Senate report recently concluded that the deadly insurrection had been planned “in plain sight” but that warnings had gone unheeded due to a troubling mix of bad communications, poor planning, faulty equipment and lack of leadership.
    Wray said that “almost none” of the 500 people charged so far with participating in the attack had been under FBI investigation previously, suggesting it would have been difficult for the FBI to have monitored them in advance.
    “You can be darn sure that we are going to be looking hard at how we can do better, how we can do more, how we can do things differently in terms of collecting and disseminating” intelligence, Wray said.

    US Capitol attack was planned in plain sight, Senate report finds


    Thursdays’s charges against six men, all from California, were disclosed in an indictment unsealed in federal court in Washington. Two of them, Alan Hostetter and Russell Taylor, were seen a day before the riot with Roger Stone, a friend and adviser to Trump, during a protest outside the US supreme court against the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.



    About 30 people – including members of two other rightwing groups, the Oath Keepers and The Proud Boys – have been accused of conspiracy, the most serious charges related to the riot. Those pending cases are the largest and most complex of the roughly 500 brought by the justice department since the attack.
    Asked whether the FBI was investigating Trump or Stone, Wray said he could neither confirm nor deny any FBI investigation.
    “I’m talking about Mr Big, No 1,” said the Tennessee Democrat Steve Cohen, referring to Trump. “Have you gone after the people who incited the riot?”
    Wray responded: “I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to be discussing whether or not we are or aren’t investigating specific individuals.”

    MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell says Trump is the first president in his lifetime 'who wasn't in it for the ego'
    John L. Dorman Jun 14, 2021, 3:18 PM


    Lindell, MyPillow's CEO, met Trump after the 2016 Republican National Convention.
    He continues to spread baseless election-fraud claims about the 2020 presidential race.

    MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell once had a dream in which he met Donald Trump.

    "Donald Trump and I were in some kind of room," he wrote in his 2019 memoir, "What Are the Odds?," which detailed his rise from difficult beginnings to become a successful businessman. "It was an office with pictures on the wall behind us, and we were standing next to each other posing for a picture."

    After the two men met in 2016, they quickly hit it off. Since then, Lindell has become one of the former president's staunchest political allies.

    In a recent Rolling Stone interview, the intensity of Lindell's affinity for the president remains apparent.

    "He is the only president in my lifetime who wasn't in it for the ego and worked only for the people and not for his own interests," Lindell told the journalist Stephen Rodrick.

    After peddling the theory that Trump would be "reinstated" as president in August, Lindell shifted his timeline in the Rolling Stone interview.

    "Six months from now, Trump will be our real president and our country will be heading toward its greatest rebirth in history," he said.

    Over the weekend, Lindell held a MAGA Frank Free Speech rally in New Richmond, Wisconsin, which featured the Trump acolytes Diamond and Silk, the conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, and David Clarke, a former Milwaukee County sheriff.

    Trump was a featured speaker, via satellite, and continued to complain about a variety of issues, from the 2020 presidential election to what he says are President Joe Biden's deficiencies at the US-Mexico border.

    Last month, Lindell was booted from the Republican Governors Association conference in Nashville, Tennessee, after planning to grill Govs. Doug Ducey of Arizona and Brian Kemp of Georgia about the 2020 election results in their respective states, Politico reported.

    Biden defeated Trump in both Arizona and Georgia, which were significant wins for the Democratic Party, but Lindell has continued to push the former president's debunked election-fraud claims.
