'What the F-ck Is This?': Team Trump Blindsided by Jan. 6 Committee Getting Doc Footage

Source: RollingStone

The Jan. 6 committee has subpoenaed documentary filmmaker Alex Holder in regard to footage and interviews Holder and his team shot while following former President Donald Trump and his inner circle throughout the 2020 presidential campaign. Holder's company, AJH Films, confirmed to Rolling Stone on Tuesday that he has been subpoenaed, will sit for an interview with the panel on Thursday, and has "fully complied with all of the committee's requests."

Trump's team was blindsided by the development, which was initially reported by Politico.

In some of the highest ranks of the Trumpworld diaspora -- including among several who testified before the Jan. 6 committee -- news of the documentarian cooperating with the congressional panel (and also potentially having reams of behind-the-scenes footage of Trump's crusade to nullify the 2020 election) came as a bizarre surprise. "What the fuck is this?" a former top Trump 2020 official messaged Rolling Stone on Tuesday after seeing the Politico item.

Another former senior official on the reelection team insisted that the first time several members of the Trump campaign leadership even heard of the documentary was when Politico reported the committee had subpoenaed the Holder. A third ex-official simply said, "Terrible idea," and pleaded baffled ignorance to the doc project.

54. It's kept me sane through a whole bunch of "thick-'n'-thins"!

And I learn something new every day! This place isn't just a website or a chatroom. It's a think tank. It's "Resource Central"! It's as good as it is because all of us have contributed to making it that good. Some absolute-torch-'n'-twang brilliant writers and thinkers post and postulate here. Opinions and positions get developed, test-driven, adjusted, refined here. We laugh, we cry, we celebrate, we fulminate. Arguments are shaped, and leavened with factual details - sometimes by the ton! People are really eloquent here. And some of the writing here is just downright brain-sexy!

Trump's inner circle were not going to talk about it. According to Schiff, the Committee got a tip off, after inviting people to come forward.

DOJ should be the lead dog. Oh well, at least the select committee will reveal all of the crimes that could have been prosecuted.

Allow me to post for my friends here, we don't know if DOJ is also investigating this.

Chump's lawyers were deranged and desperate because they were the only ones left.

No matter what Chump says now - I'll guarantee you he greenlit this movie project. He wanted to be the star of his own movie that showed him "winning" the presidency.

Wasn't that considerate of him to provide all this evidence in a nice package?

Love the fact that the J6 committee has experts on their video/audio/presentation team. One can be sure that hours of video and audio will be condensed to show the worst stuff that was recorded.

Hard for defendants to argue with their own words and visages, eh?

of what you said: the narcissist in TFG was so extreme that he thought his multi-level plan to seize a 2nd term was bullet proof, would succeed and he'd revel in those videotapes over and over again. Fuck him as these tapes ARE a smoking gun! !

37. A pet peeve

"reams of footage"
Reams is a measure of paper sheets.
Footage is a measure of film.
Mixed metaphor. But essentially nothing anymore is shot on film. It is all digital.
Calling digital video 'footage' doesn't make sense. Call it 'bitage' of just video.
