Rose Mary Woods redux

Saturday, April 2nd, 2022


Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said lawmakers on the Jan. 6 House select committee are deeply interested in the 7-hour gap in former President Donald Trump’s White House phone logs on the day of the Capitol riot, saying it seems to be “suspiciously tailored” to the period when the unprecedented assault took place.

Raskin, who’s a member of the panel, told CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday that lawmakers had been able to piece together some details about who Trump spoke with that day, but were still missing key information.

It’s a very unusual thing for us to find, that suddenly everything goes dark for a 7-hour period in terms of tracking the movements and the conversations of the president,” Raskin said.

A number of differences between Trump and Nixon. Nixon’s tape was missing 18 and a half minutes — all very disappointing that Rose Mary Woods accidentally deleted it as the audio would have possibly wholly exonerated Nixon —

— or maybe revealed the information about the aliens —

But this missing information comes from a different direction. It is a sheet of paper. Someone accidentally spilled a bottle of ink on it. Or maybe it is a log file on the computer, corrupted by a virus so sadly had to be deleted.

Nothing to see here. Move along.
