    Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MI) has denied ever deceptively editing video while serving as chairman for the January 6 Select Committee. Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday released new, unseen footage from the Capitol Hill riot that unfolded on January 6, 2021, which appeared to portray a different picture than the one that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) painted. Throughout his segment, footage showed scenes that ran contrary to some of the narratives put forth by the January 6 committee by claiming rioters had participated in an “insurrection.”
  • The Scandal of the Secret Service’s Deleted Texts

    Why the subterfuge? What might those texts reveal? Before and during Donald Trump’s time in the White House, powerful federal agencies aligned to sabotage his candidacy and then his presidency. Once-trusted entities such as the FBI, the intelligence community, and even parts of the U.S. military have burned their credibility by abandoning their missions to instead try to end Trump’s political career. Does this include the Secret Service? Unfortunately, the scandal over deleted texts related to January 6 demands the question. Last month, the inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that houses the Secret Service, officially...

    A Republican lawmaker attended his gay son’s wedding just three days after joining the majority of his GOP colleagues in voting against a House bill that would codify federal protections for same-sex marriage. The gay son of Rep. Glenn Thompson, R-Pa., confirmed to NBC News on Monday that he “married the love of [his] life” on Friday and that his “father was there.” NBC News is not publishing the names of the grooms, neither of whom is a public figure. Thompson’s press secretary, Maddison Stone, also confirmed the congressman was in attendance. “Congressman and Mrs. Thompson were thrilled to attend...

    The House Jan. 6 committee is extending the timetable for its public hearings into July.

The House will reconvene the week of July 11, and Thompson indicated that's the earliest hearings would likely resume.

    House Select Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that he would welcome former President Donald Trump to testify before the panel investigating the January 6 riot at the Capitol. Thompson said, “What we have to do is make sure at that time public understands that people did not just leave the eclipse and walk to the Capitol. The Proud Boys and others had already assembled at the Peace Circle, surveilling the Capitol and making sure that once they wanted to breach it, they went to the most vulnerable site. They went to an area that was...

    Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that former President Donald Trump “did nothing” to stop the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol as we came “perilously close to losing our democracy.” Thompson said, “Let me say that what we have been able to ascertain is that we came perilously close to losing our democracy as we come to learn it. Had those insurrectionists been successful, we are not certain what we would have had, had it not been for the brave men and women who protected the Capitol in spite of being woefully...

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), the chairman of the House select committee investigating the January 6 riot at the Capitol, said the public would be shocked at the findings of their probe. Maddow said, “Can I ask you if you feel like thus far you have learned things that surprise you? You have, obviously, you are not ready to report what you found, not ready to tell the country what the results of your investigation are, but as far as it’s gone thus far, have you learned things that surprised you?

    Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS), chair of the House Select Committee investigating January 6, said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that his committee had “information” that individuals were planning in anticipation of the election not going their way. Thompson said, “Clearly, a lot of us at this point feel that had January 6 been successful, this democracy would not be what it is today. So we came real close. So by getting this information, we think it will provide the necessary direction for us to correct it so that the military or no other branch of government can be...

    Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS), chair of the House Select Committee investigating January 6, said Monday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily” that the committee will investigate if Republican members of Congress helped Capitol rioters. Thompson said, “We have to see if there were other members of Congress that perhaps contributed to what went on. There have been allegations that some members of Congress gave tours of the Capitol to people who have been in charge of the insurrection. We also have to get with the Department of Justice. We’re not interested in conflicting with the prosecution. But we think there is significant...

    A linguist for the Department of Defense pleaded guilty on Friday to passing classified information about U.S. human intelligence sources to an individual with ties to Hezbollah, a Lebanese terrorist organization, the Department of Justice said. Mariam Taha Thompson began sending the information after the U.S. killed Qassem Soleimani, a top Iranian military commander, in an airstrike in early 2020, according to court documents. Thompson, who held a top secret security clearance, had been stationed at a Special Operations Task Force facility in Iraq from mid-December 2019 until her arrest a few months later. Years before she began passing classified...

    Rep. Bennie Thompson is targeting former President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers in a suit alleging that they conspired to incite the violence that transpired at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. The lawsuit filed on behalf of the long-serving Mississippi Democrat by the NAACP and the Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll law firm claims that the defendants broke the 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act by attempting to meddle in Congress's certification of the Electoral College count, according to NPR.

    Mr. Thompson, the Head of the State, was a man who possessed the quality of never being noticed. In any group of three, his person became indistinguishable, and when seen alone it seemed to evoke a group of its own, composed of the countless persons he resembled. The country had no clear image of what he looked like: his photographs had appeared on the covers of magazines as frequently as those of his predecessors in office, but people could never be quite certain which photographs were his and which were pictures of "a mail clerk" or "a white-collar worker," accompanying...

Thompson confirmed that he assisted with the recount and is preparing to assist in the runoff election.

    Ruthie Thompson knew the Disney brothers long before they became the household names they are today. Thompson grew up near Walt and Roy when they owned their house on Kingswell Avenue in Los Angeles and was one of several neighborhood kids who served as a live-action reference model for the Disney brothers’ Alice comedies. As an adult, Thompson was offered a job in the Walt Disney Animation Studios Ink & Paint Department. She worked at Disney for 40 years, from 1935 until she retired in 1975. Thompson famously worked on nearly every animated Walt Disney feature film from Snow White...

Thompson's music arrangement and his musicology of fine folk, traditional and historical music, are first rate, ranking him with Joaquin Rodrigo and Ottorino Respighi.Thompson replied, "no I'm not" and walked out of the interview on the air.

    The publication yesterday of Paul Volcker's fifth and final report on the U.N.'s Oil for Food program tells us little we didn't know about the broad outlines of the $100 billion scandal. But, oh, are the details ever instructive. The Volcker report confirms that Saddam Hussein demanded, and got, some $1.8 billion in illegal surcharges, kickbacks and bribes from companies doing business in Iraq. It confirms that he steered billions in oil and humanitarian contracts to his politically preferred clients, particularly Russia and France, and smaller sums to agents of influence (or their associates) such as British MP George Galloway,...

    Fido and Sylvester could be in big trouble, according to Emma Thompson. The actress issued a strong warning on Thursday of an impending "climate crisis" so dire that people will have no choice but to eat their own pets. The actress, 60, attended an Extinction Rebellion protest outside of the BBC Broadcasting House in London on Thursday, where she claimed there is "extreme weather" ahead. **SNIP** "Better wrap up warm, stockpile food and remember there is a surprising amount of protein in the average household pet."
