  1. When will Joe Biden fire Christopher Ray and Merrick Garland for not doing their jobs? What's more important than investigating and prosecution of those involved in a coup attempt?

  2. Expell from Congress. Treason for all. How ironic for MTG who called for Pelosi execution for treason, while MTG was participating in treasonous acts. No execution for MTG and BOEBERT and their boys. Life in prison.

  3. The "far left" is out there,but they have nothing near the political weight or media influence of the "far right". The extremism embraced by Trump is what fueled Jan 6. He is holding the moderates hostage.

  4. I almost feel bad for traditional, real conservative republicans today. Are they just going to sit by and watch their party slowly slip away into a political abyss?

  5. LOL. Democrats are wagging the dog. Everyone knows that Pelosi and the Elite RINO's planned and executed this. The Capitol Police were involved. 14,000 hours of unreleased video ruins the lie. This is hilarious.

  6. My prediction is that the committee is too afraid to subpoena Trump or at least hold him in criminal contempt. The backlash would be too great and it's too daunting for the committee. Dems are too weak for that mentally. I really hope I'm wrong though.

  7. So maybe this is one of many reasons, they’re petrified of Trump!! Trumps involved as well!! All the names will come out in everyday possible!! Trump will throw them under the bus, you to protect himself!! Absolutely disgraceful!!

  8. Firstly, any members of Congress found to have helped to organise the January 6 Insurrection and Terrorist attack against the US Government must be EXPELLED from Congress. Secondly, the DOJ has a duty to CRIMINALLY investigate any and every sitting member of Congress that helped to plan and organise the January 6 Insurrection and Terrorist attack against the US Government. Thirdly, should the DOJ fail or refuse to CRIMINALLY investigate any and every sitting member of Congress that helped to plan and organise the January 6 Insurrection and Terrorist attack against the US Government (For POLITICAL reasons), then the DOJ may well be committing the Federal Crime of "Accessory After The Fact (18 US code s3). This US statute reads as follows…."Whoever, knowing that an offence against the United States has been committed, receives, releves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment is an accessory after the fact".

  9. Everyone behind this political witch hunt, from government officials, politicians, to social and main street media (and anti constitutional judges,) should all be executed GITMO.

  10. This was an act of treason, with a capital T. Offficials involved in the planning has to include 45, and they must all be prosecuted to the most extreme fullest extent of the law. The ultimate penalty for treason is death. They are all traitors that took part in this and deserve the harshest punishment the law provides for their insidious despicable assault on our democracy.

  11. I knew this Capitol attack was fake. It was a awful production. Especially those on the inside letting people in the side doors. Trump and his cronies watching the whole thing on a teleprompter.
    How can we forget that awful song by Laura Brannigan, "Gloria" Trump's son was videotaping his ugly girlfriend dancing to it.

  12. WE ALL KNEW IT WAS A INSIDE JOB! WHY YOU ALL THINK THE GOP DIDN'T WANT AN INVESTIGATION INTO THEIR ACTIVITIES THAT DAY! THAT THEY TRIED TOO TAKE OVER THE GOVERNMENT BY FORCE, BECAUSE THEY LOST?
