It appears loathsome Liz Cheney has placed her “insurrection” hopes on the nebulous concept of Donald Trump’s “dereliction of duty.” Which, for all practical purposes, means that the sham January 6 investigation is over. Since the committee has found zero evidence to support the ludicrous claim of an unarmed insurrection, dereliction of duty is the hill their proceedings will die on.
The January 6 investigation circus has all boiled down to a silly argument over whether Trump waited 25 minutes or 187 minutes to “call for peace.” Twenty-five minutes, okay. Three hours, a crime. Got it?
If dereliction of duty is the new standard for a president being criminally culpable, Joe Biden has a huge problem. Dereliction of duty is technically defined as “deliberate or accidental failure to do what you should do as part of your job.” Since Biden fails, day in and day out, to do anything that a president’s job entails, he’s surely deserving of at least a couple hundred years in federal prison.
If patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, dereliction of duty is the last gasp of a phony investigation. Take it to the bank, the January 6 sham investigation is over, and, as with their two sham impeachments, Democrats will once again be exposed as frauds.
Isn’t it comforting to know that you’re paying for all this melodramatic nonsense?
