Wrapping Up Today's News from Colorado's GOP Primary for Secretary of State, Plus Hutchinson Testimony about January 6 and Trump

Yesterday, at https://www.apocryphalpress.com/2022/06/27/in-colorado-controversial-secretary-of-state-candidate-suddenly-bows-out-to-be-trump-s-2024-running-mate/, we reported on today’s Republican primary for Colorado Secretary of State. As usual, we went off on something that didn’t happen, as our AP is designed to be "your best source for the news that didn’t happen.”


But we always report on things that did happen and then spin it out for the entertainment of our readers who have not unsubscribed from our MailChimp list (MailChimp makes it virtually impossible for one who has unintentionally unsubscribed, to resubscribe). And we all get too many emails. 


Three Republican candidates were on the ballot for Colorado Secretary of State today: former Jefferson County Clerk and Recorder Pam Anderson; Mike O’Donnell; and Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Tina Peters, an election denier who has been indicted for various misdeeds involving the 2020 election, which she supervised. 


Early results as reported by The Denver Post show Anderson with 50.4 per cent, O’Donnell with 27.89 percent, and Peters trailing with 21.69 %.


Today was also the day for riveting testimony by Cassidy Hutchinson, former White House assistant to then White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Hutchinson testifieid that on Insurrection Day, when Vice President Mike Pence’s life was seriously threatened and Donald Trump cheered on the rioters, Trump tried to drive himself to the Capitol but his White House Counsel forbade it because of the insurrection which had already begun. (https://www.politico.com/news/2022/06/28/jan-6-meadows-hutchinson-trump-00042779).


And on January 7, it was Meadows who asked Trump for a pardon.


That’s when our Chief Investigative Reporter, associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman, texted us to tell us that Hutchinson said that under no circumstances would she counsel Peters on how to campaign for Colorado Secretary of State should she win the primary.
