Mo Brooks, Matt Gaetz, Andy Biggs, Louis Gohmert, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Scott Perry


Friendly reminder that Mo Brooks wore a bullet proof vest to work on January 6th. Now legally speaking we'd need to confirm that that wasn't a habit for him but generally speaking, you have to wonder what he knows if he did that and asked for a pardon for his role afterwards.


Man these guys are dumb as fuck. Trump wasn't giving out pardons... he was selling them.


Gaetz asking for a general pardon make me think he was hoping to cover his ass on the election front as well as the pedo front.


Gaetz: “I already paid Roger Stone, so I’d like a double pardon.”


If they didn’t do anything wrong, why would they need pardons?… oh, that’s right, they did…


"The only reason I know to ask for a pardon, is because you think that you've committed a crime."

Of course all the usual suspects on this list and I'm sure more familiar names are out there if there's any written communications on it.

Not a good look, ill bet those folks are sweating!
