Over the weekend, Newt Gingrich went on to Maria Bartiromo’s present and virtually nonchalantly instructed the viewers what was about to occur in retribution to the Choose Committee:

“And all these individuals who have been so robust, and so imply, and so nasty are going to be delivered subpoenas for each doc, each dialog, each tweet, each e-mail. I feel when you’ve gotten a Republican Congress, that is all going to come back crashing down.

“And the wolves are going to seek out out that they’re now sheep they usually’re those who’re actually, I feel, face an actual threat of jail for the sorts of legal guidelines they’re breaking.”

Right here is the video after which we choose up Wilson beneath:

Gingrich by no means received round to citing a legislation they had been breaking.

There was by no means any doubt that, ought to the Republicans take the Home in 2022, Biden will probably be impeached, greater than as soon as, and we haven’t seen the definition of “nasty” but. Gingrich has forgotten who arrests who, although, in our system of presidency. There won’t be any arrests in 2023, however they could want to attend solely two years, at the least beneath our system of presidency.

However does “our” system of presidency matter anymore? If in 2024, the GOP takes the presidency, whether or not it’s Trump (I significantly doubt he’ll run, he might lose and can’t take it), or DeSantis, do we predict we’ll have “our” system of presidency anymore? Or do we predict that the members of the committee which might be at present serving do, truly, face jail/jail, or at the least civil fits? I feel it’s the latter as a result of there’s no motive to consider in GOP restraint anymore. Bear in mind Amy Coney-Barett? The refusal to research January sixth?

Rick Wilson is aware of this and awoke this morning wanting to handle the truth that he noticed over the weekend with Newt and others. We can not set out all the Tweet thread right here, however we will hit some highlights that reinforce the message above about what’s to come back ought to the Republicans seize energy:

1/ I took a light-weight weekend on the social media entrance, however let me say a number of phrases about Newt’s not-so-subtle threats this weekend. He’s proper. He’s simply saying the quiet half out loud.

Different highlights:

6/ Subsequent, pleasing their god-king. He calls for they “examine” the Large Lie and they’ll create a wave of scandals the place none exists as a result of the aim of the Large Lie is corrode and undermine religion in elections. Undermining religion in elections is central.

7/ As a result of if the election of 2020 is illegitimate to their base, something goes. I warned in 2019 that they’d mainstream political violence as a result of the acquisition and retention of political energy is the one ideological underpinning.

And thus fulfilling the endgame in Putin’s unique plan, as a result of – sure, I do consider that every one of this started in Japanese Europe and the banks of the Volga River. I can not show it, however anybody that desires to argue goes to have to elucidate the peculiar variety of Russians in and across the Trump marketing campaign, the NRA funding, the 2018 journey to Moscow (By solely GOP Sens, not a single Democrat invited), Tucker Carlson taking Putin’s place all final week (By no means thoughts Madison Cawthorn’s very peculiar marriage), John Bolton predicting Trump would pull us out of NATO in a second time period… it goes on and on.

KGB doctrine has at all times been the identical as Lincoln’s, the one method to defeat this nation, one with blue water ports on either side and bases scattered all through all the 50 states, can be from inside and it at all times concerned undermining religion in democracy, the vote. Probably the most outrageous and horrifying side of all of that is that I consider that a few of the strongest Republicans know precisely what’s taking place and consider {that a} extra “Russian-type” of presidency within the U.S., the place minority rule can be consolidated round cash and entrenched energy is one of the best long run plan and are satisfied a extra “Putin-like” authorities is finest for the USA.

We won’t abandon our Structure, there’ll nonetheless be a Congress and SCOTUS, all of the accouterments of democracy will nonetheless be round. The issue is that none of it should actually imply something because the GOP solidifies its controls of the mechanisms of presidency, specifically – the vote, and religion in any vote that they lose. They’ve already proven they’re keen to resort to violence and in the event that they lose once more in 2024 (which I see as uncertain given Jim Crowe 2.0), we’ll see the apply they put into play in 2020 used to raised impact.

Wilson is true. The GOP and MAGAs (There isn’t a actual distinction now) don’t have a platform. They didn’t trouble with one in 2020. So symbolic. Their platform is energy, interval. It’s regaining energy and it isn’t past the creativeness that they’d imprison these members of the committee exposing their abuses of energy proper now.

Democrats had (have) their one final shot. Clear this up by way of prosecutions and solidify the vote, or undergo what turns into of it. It’s one or the opposite and it’s arduous to consider that the 2 Democrats standing in the best way worry the results of what’s to come back.
