'The Best is Yet to Come': Kimberly Guilfoyle's January 6 Role Comes Under the Microscope

Mod: Did Kimberly Guilfoyle raise $3 million to fund the Jan. 6 insurrection? 

Kimberly Guilfoyle's January 6 Role Comes Under the Microscope (Vanity Fair link): In the wake of Steve Bannon’s indictment for refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena related to the House investigation into the January 6 riot, a number of Trumpworld celebrities have now found themselves in the committee’s crosshairs. On Monday, the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack issued subpoenas to five individuals allied with Donald Trump, all of whom reportedly took part in or had knowledge of the planning, funding, or orchestrating of the “Stop the Steal” rallies. 

Those subpoenaed include GOP operative Roger Stone, far-right commentator Alex Jones, Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich, and a pair of pro-Trump organizers, Dustin Stockton and Jennifer Lawrence, responsible for amassing hundreds of thousands of members on a “Stop the StealFacebook group. 

In a Monday statement, Rep. Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat who chairs the select committee, wrote that “the select committee is seeking information about the rallies and subsequent march to the Capitol that escalated into a violent mob attacking the Capitol and threatening our democracy. We need to know who organized, planned, paid for, and received funds related to those events, as well as what communications organizers had with officials in the White House and Congress.” 

Budowich, whose current title is communications director for Trump’s Save America PAC, previously worked alongside Donald Trump Jr. and former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle while serving as a senior adviser for the Trump 2020 campaign. In the committee’s subpoena announcement, Budowich is accused of reportedly soliciting “a 501(c)(4) organization to conduct a social media and radio advertising campaign encouraging attendance at the January 6 Ellipse rally and advancing unsupported claims about the result of the election.” 

It appears that Budowich’s connection to Guilfoyle may be what piqued the interest of the January 6 committee, given that she claimed to have raised $3 million for the January 6 rally that Trump spoke at in the hours leading up to the Capitol riot. 

According to a ProPublica report, Guilfoyle, who is dating Trump Jr. and worked as a fundraiser for the Trump Victory committee, made the claim while bragging two days before January 6 that she “raised so much money for this” in a series of text messages. “Literally one of my donors Julie at 3 million,” wrote Guilfoyle in reference to GOP mega-donor Julie Jenkins Fancelli. In a statement to ProPublica, Guilfoyle’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, claimed that his client’s text messages “did not relate to the ‘Save America’ ​rally” and were “inaccurate” and “taken out of context.” 

As for Guilfoyle’s own actions on January 6, she did passionately address the crowd that gathered to hear Trump and Trump Jr. speak. “We will continue to stand for President Trump,” she said. “We will not allow the liberals and the Democrats to steal our dream or steal our elections.

  7. Trump’s ‘Save America’ Could Pay $156,000 For Every Jan. 6 Rioter’s Defense, But So Far Has Spent Zero.
    The $105 million he has collected by spreading the same lies he used to incite the attack, but so far has not helped a single one of the nearly 700 rioters.

    “Many people who went there that day are disappointed by his lack of support,” said one defense lawyer on the condition of anonymity so as not to hurt his Jan. 6 client’s case. “If President Trump was ever going to step up and step in, the time to do it is right now.”
    Though the House impeached Trump for inciting the attack, all but seven Senate Republicans, led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, chose not to convict him ― thereby letting Trump continue his political career even as faces several investigations into his post election actions.

    1. When will the trials begin for the seditionists who refuse to plead guilty?

      The prosecution should subpoena as witnesses for each and every trial Trump, Jr, and all the Trump cronies who fomented the Capitol attack, tying them up for the next few years. Let's hear them take the 5th at each and every sedition trial.

    San Franciscans are among the most efficient water users in the state. SF residents use on average 42 gallons of water per person, per day, less than half of the statewide average of about 90 gallons, the commission said. Wholesale customers use an average of 63.4 gallons per person per day.

  9. A newly released report from the Association of Families of Flight PS752 Victims claims the Iranian government deliberately did not close the airspace to civilian flights, using passenger flights to "shield against possible American attacks."

    At the highest levels of military alertness, the government of Iran used passenger flights as human shield against possible American attacks, by deliberately not closing the airspace to civilian flights. Report by Association of Families of Flight PS752 Victims.

    Iran is just as bad as Communist controlled countries around the world.

  10. The fact is, this state and its entire judicial system will wear this vale of shame forever! The facts support the shameful actions of allowing a armed murder to be set free.
    The history books will write and print the filth that was allowed to happen in its court houses.

    Lemanski said she started tweeting the comments in question very early Monday, about 2 a.m. In the morning, she said, she quickly realized the mistake she had made and regretted bringing the Waukesha tragedy into the discussion about the Rittenhouse verdict.

  12. Good for scrooge!

    Sitting out the season: A record number of Americans say they won’t be buying holiday gifts this year.

    Predictions for holiday retail sales are rosy, with the National Retail Federation calling for record gains of 8.5% to 10.5% from year-ago levels.
    But a record-high amount of people, or 11.5% of Americans, aren’t buying any gifts this holiday season, according to a survey by Deloitte.
    Wealthy consumers are planning to spend more, which will mask the fact that many others are sitting out the season.
    Higher-income households in the U.S. plan to spend five-times that of lower-income households this holiday season, said Deloitte.

  13. The Rittenhouse Verdict Will Backfire on Republicans

    https://prospect.org/the-rittenhouse-verdict-will-backfire-on-republicans/

    Most Americans do not feel safer with 17-year-old trigger-happy vigilantes patrolling their communities with AR-15s. If Kyle Rittenhouse is the new face of the Republican Party, that’s a win for Democrats.

    Most of the white American public is less racist than Republicans would like to believe. The murder convictions in the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery demonstrate that even in the deep south vigilantes are not invariably given impunity. After the police murder of George Floyd, two-thirds of Americans approved of the Movement for Black Lives. That approval has declined some, but has stabilized at around 55 percent. After former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of Floyd’s murder in May 2021, three-quarters of Americans approved of the verdict.

    Early polls show that a majority of Americans were uneasy about the Ritttenhouse acquittal. A YouGov poll found that a large majority of Democrats and a plurality of independents felt Rittenhouse was guilty of murder.

    A Morning Consult poll found that 71 percent of Republicans but only 43 percent of all those polled approved of the verdict. A plurality also said the verdict gave them less confidence in the criminal justice system.

    The strategy of lionizing vigilantes like Rittenhouse may deepen Republican support in hard-core Trump country. It will be a gift to Democrats in suburban swing districts where the 2022 midterms will be decided.
