CNN Has The Scott Perry Story (Oh, And Doug Mastriano's Name Shows Up, Too!)

Take a look:

Or you can read about it here:

Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Scott Perry is under renewed scrutiny after a Senate report released last week provided fresh details about Perry's role in helping former President Donald Trump try to overturn the 2020 election.

The report from the Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats zeroes in on Perry as a key player in Trump's attempts to pressure the Justice Department to support his false voter fraud conspiracies, which Trump had hoped would lead to Congress overturning his 2020 loss to Joe Biden. Perry connected Trump with a Justice Department lawyer, Jeffrey Clark, who was open to his claims of voter fraud, while Trump dispatched Perry to try to convince the top DOJ brass that the election had been stolen, according to the committee.

And, as we're learning, as goes Scott Perry, so goes PA State Senator Doug Mastriano. First the visual:

And now the readable:
Perry and the other two officials singled out by the report, Trump campaign legal adviser Cleta Mitchell and Pennsylvania state GOP Rep. Doug Mastriano, could all have firsthand knowledge about Trump's efforts behind the scenes in the lead-up to the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol.
Perry was among roughly a dozen GOP lawmakers whose phone records the committee instructed telecom companies to preserve in August.

I wonder if any of those calls were to Mastriano. I wonder. I wonder if they talked, whether they traded Army stories or just simply coup-cooed late at night.

But back to the Über-patriot Scott Perry:

In the months since January 6, Perry has not backed off his claims that the election results should have been thrown out in Pennsylvania. He also voted against creating an independent commission or a select committee to investigate the January 6 attack on the Capitol, and he was part of a group of nearly two-dozen House Republicans who voted against awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to the officers who defended the Capitol on January 6.

Great guy, Scott Perry. One of Trump's guys. 

Another is Doug Mastriano.
