So, do you have your January 6 tree up yet? Did you get your January 6 cards out? I have to admit, we got a little behind this year. I just took down the Christmas decorations and we just didn’t have the time to schedule a party with friends and family to sing January 6 carols around a cheerful fire of Constitutions. *Sigh*. The holidays just seem to fly by, don’t they?

You remember January 6, right? That was the day some people did something at the Capitol, which was apparently infinitely worse than the time some people did something on September 11.  Chances are January 6 is very much on the mind of Sean Hannity. The January 6 committee has requested the honor of Hannity’s presence. Strictly voluntary, of course. Hannity has been a vocal supporter and sometime-advisor of President Trump. In the much-ballyhooed media dump, it was made known that during the incident, Hannity texted White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, asking him to get Trump to get the crowd to stand down.

The committee wants to ask Hannity some “factual” questions; his political views and commentary would not be subject to scrutiny. (You there, stop that giggling right this minute. You know who I’m talking to.) Hannity’s legal counsel, Jay Sekulow, commented on the request telling Axios: “If true, any such request would raise serious constitutional issues including First Amendment concerns regarding freedom of the press.”

I can understand Dems forgetting the old maxim about not picking fights with newspapers that order ink by the barrel. Dems' skewspaper-shills have had shrinking readership for decades. But the saying should be updated to include media pundits who do hours of radio and TV shows every day, and have viewers and listeners by the hundreds of thousands.

My takeaway from this is yes, they're trying to intimidate people in general, not only Hannity. But rather than subpoena him outright, they're taking the "softer, kinder" approach and are "inviting" him to participate.

If he were smart, he'd tell 'em to pound sand and force them to subpoena him if they really want to talk to him that badly.

Since Hannity's legal counsel is Jay Sekulow, I don't think the soft threats method is working, and a subpoena is likely to get a, "I'll see you in court, where you'll lose," response.

This is a way to criminalize opposition party status. any prominent conservative can go to jail with doctored evidence from Schiff. anyone can be a 'secret advisor."

It's a parlor-trick.  Nothing more.
