The former president had been wailing about his predicament on his Truth Social platform since before the Jan. 6 committee held its final public hearing, where they voted to refer him to the DOJ for criminal charges, but his urgency seemed to pick up after the panel's final report dropped and the IRS finally turned over his tax records to the House Ways and Means Committee, reported The Bulwark.

Trump WH aide said it was ‘painfully obvious’ when Trump wrote his own tweets because of ‘the capitalization of letters’

  Trump WH aide said it was ‘painfully obvious’ when Trump wrote his own tweets because of ‘the capitalization of letters’ "In times of crises, you want your leader to meet the moment, and to me, it felt like he didn't meet the moment," former aide Sarah Matthews said.Sarah Matthews, a White House aide who worked for Trump from 2017 to 2021, testified to the January 6 committee that she occasionally worked with former chief of staff Dan Scavino to help draft tweets for Trump, according to the transcript released on Thursday along with a trove of other testimonies from officials close to Trump around the time of the riot.

"Trump truthed out a novel legal defense: 'The Fake charges made by the highly partisan Unselect Committee of January 6th have already been submitted, prosecuted, and tried in the form of Impeachment Hoax # 2. I WON convincingly. Double Jeopardy anyone!'" wrote columnist Bill Lueders.

"Double jeopardy is the legal principle that a person cannot be charged twice for the same crime," Lueders added. "It does not apply to impeachment proceedings, because those are not criminal prosecutions. Trump should probably ask a lawyer to explain this to him, although maybe not the lawyers who were advising him in late 2020 and early 2021, since the committee has referred some of them for criminal prosecution alongside Trump."

The ex-president continued blasting out frenzied denials through the holiday weekend attacking law enforcement and his political enemies, including one "frantic and foul-tempered rant" extending Christmas Day greetings to even the "Radical Left Marxists that are trying to destroy our Country."

GOP Sen. Mike Lee said that 'Rudy is walking malpractice' after Giuliani left him an accidental voicemail on January 6

  GOP Sen. Mike Lee said that 'Rudy is walking malpractice' after Giuliani left him an accidental voicemail on January 6 "You can't make this up," Lee texted Robert O'Brien after getting a voicemail intended for Sen. Tommy Tuberville. "Rudy is walking malpractice."Before testifying in the investigation launched against her former boss' involvement in the Capitol riots, Hicks was the youngest White House communications director in history. But prior to joining the 2016 Trump campaign, she had no political experience.

"Donald Trump gives new meaning to the word 'shameless,'" Lueders said. "I could go on and on with the catalog of Trump posts, but you get the idea: He is ensconced in his bunker at Mar-a-Lago, spewing nonsense, denying the obvious, and making a perpetual display of his unfitness for office."

The posts make plain Trump hasn't read the report or understand that its findings undercut his lies about election fraud and his subsequent attempts to escape consequences for trying to overturn his 2020 loss, but Lueders said they seem to point toward a final reckoning with his criminality.

"With the release of the January 6th Committee’s report and the picked-up pace of the Justice Department investigation now led by a special counsel, this moment may be the beginning of the end of Trump’s avoidance of consequence," Lueders wrote. "But don’t expect his social media to reckon with that possibility. He’ll just keep posting his angry lies — until, perchance, prison bars prevent him from accessing the internet."
