“We did nothing wrong. Please don’t show the records of us not doing anything wrong.’
American capitalism is a threat to democracy, change my mind.
That’s like a bank robber suing so they don’t release video footage.
That’s some smooth brain move right there.
“I’m totally innocent! ……. no, you can’t see the evidence that absolves me!”
Isn’t this type of records release the exact reason the Patriot Act was incepted? Well, it was the stated reason anyway…
Does the government have evidence that these individuals participated in or organized the assault on the Capitol building? If so, then fuck them. If there isn’t some outside evidence that they organized it and the government is fishing for evidence, that’s a different story.
Traitors fucked around and now they’re gonna find out.
Note that this is a congressional subpoena, not one issued by a judge after examination of evidence. Congress is a political body and they’re arguing that release of their phone records without any evidence of wrongdoing is a political move and a violation of their privacy. If they were involved, I don’t have much sympathy, but it’s not clear that the people targeted were involved yet.
If the Patriot Act ends up being used to convict a bunch of republicans in congress I think we all need to admit that Earth is scripted media for an alien species that inhabits the 4th dimension and can orgasm from overexposure to irony.
