2/ In the above short video, Rep. Jim Banks (R-03) is speaking regarding a past event (1983) of domestic terrorism. Banks's statement here was given on December 14, 2021 in the U.S. House Chamber during the House Select Committee Hearings regarding the January 6th Attack.
3/ Banks's behavior here demonstrates two examples of 'Whataboutism' (a common method of attempting to discredit another person/group by accusing them of hypocrisy). Banks does this in an effort to distance Republicans from any involvement in the January 6th Attack.

@LeaderMcConnell and the majority of the @SenateGOP voted to suspend the debt ceiling on 8/1/2019. On that day, the US national debt was $22.023 trillion dollars. Donald Trump was President and Mitch McConnell was Senate Majority Leader.
Joe Biden became President and the Democrats took control of the Senate on 1/20/2021. On that day the National Debt was $27.752 trillion dollars.

The debt had risen by $5.729 trillion since McConnell and his Caucus voted to suspend the debt ceiling 538 days earlier.
The debt is now $28.429 trillion dollars - just below our debt ceiling. But 89.43% of the debt we incurred since the GOP cooperated with suspending the debt ceiling on 8/1.
/2019 was borrowed during the time when Donald Trump was POTUS and @LeaderMcConnell controlled the Senate.

1) Pay Attention regarding the second round of subpoenas from #January6thCommission. THERE WERE THREE STOP THE STEAL RALLIES! I covered all three. ALL the same speakers and same message. Jesus. The election was stolen. The first was 11/14
2) The second Stop the Steal rally was December 12, where I saw more proud boys than I'd ever seen in one place and I've been filming them for 4 years.
3) The third was January 6. The night before there were fire breathing calls for a holy war speeches from Alex Jones and Roger Stone

And we’re underway with @PressSec.
Tomorrow, on his trip to the Lehigh Valley in #Pennsylvania, @POTUS will talk about the "importance of American manufacturing" and tour the @MackTrucks facility, according to @PressSec.
"We are still in the midst of a once-in-a-generation pandemic" with a new strain of a mutating #coronavirus, says @PressSec when asked about the new @CDCgov guidelines on masks.

Do @GOPLeader and his closest allies realize that the more they try to diminish or dilute the #January6thCommission (by attacking Cheney and Kinzinger or by trying to include members of the Carnival Barker Caucus to gum up the works), the more they look like they fear discovery?
They had a chance to have a completely bipartisan commission, with the ability for @GOPLeader to pick whoever he wanted to be on it. But guess who who whipped his members to vote against it? Yup. The same guy who is whining now.

You created your own problem, Kevin! Image
@HouseGOP, if you wanted to have more control over what happens on the committee, you had the opportunity to have that in May when you voted on it. But 175 of you voted “no.” Don’t complain about what you voted for.

Sicknick’s partner: “To know that some members of Congress—along w/Trump who Brian & I once supported but who can only now be viewed as the mastermind of that horrible attack—are not acknowledging Brian's heroism that day is unforgivable & un-American.”
cnn.com/2021/06/23/opi…
“Only a handful of @SenateGOP showed that they possessed the moral compass to do the right thing by voting yes (on the #January6thCommission), putting America first, and showing warmth and compassion for the officers (as well as their families) who protect them daily.”
“By denying or downplaying the viciousness and trauma that occurred on January 6, (@GOP) members of Congress & the people who continue echoing their false narrative are engaging in a specific kind of psychological harm…known as ‘secondary wounding.’"

#BackToSchool With all the investigations & talk about Congressional Committees, it’s important to review some history & understand the impact CC’s have had in the past? Why is it so much harder to get accountability today? (Hint: Think elephant)

Conducting investigations is one of the most public activities in which congressional committees engage. 2/13 #JusticeMatters #investigation #accountability #TheBigLie #demswork4usa
During the Progressive Era of the 1890s through 1920s, members could gain the attention of muckraking journalists by holding investigative
hearings to expose corruption in business and government. 3/13 #Corruption #accountability #Congress #TheBigLie

As I’m reading the Senate Rules Report on #January6th I will tweet some observations.

I am struck by the statements in the early pages on bureaucratic incompetence, decision-making paralysis & inter-agency communications and intelligence breakdowns.
Free speech & actionable credible threats of violence are not mutually exclusive

It boggles the mind that an excuse for inaction from FBI and DHS is not being able to discern enough between speech and actionable intelligence... and blame the “intelligence community”. Hmm
FBI, DHS and USCP have their own authorities and intelligence shops. Look internally for blame. USCP should have the confidence, resources, capabilities & expertise to release their own intelligence bulletins/reports. Mobilizing resources should be contingent on that expertise.

.@SenateGOP republicans voting against the bipartisan #January6thCommission are marked with a Scarlett Letter. They failed to hold Trump accountable after impeachment, were complicit in the deaths of 600,000 & participated in an insurrection that threatened to end US democracy.
Extremist is @SenateGOP voting against US national security. A moderate response would be to reevaluate the filibuster. @SenateDems need to seriously consider this option.
Also, institutional donors still support anti-American politicians. Why? Why are they funding anti-American political campaigns & activities? Let’s start circulating vetted information on corporate interests funding @tedcruz @HawleyMO and the like. This a part of accountability.

#GladysSicknick breaks my heart. The grieving mother. My son also died on January 6. I found out after I got back to my hotel after 9 hours at the Capitol so we forever share that sad anniversary. I vow to never give up bringing those organizers to justice. #January6thCommission
Thank you all so much for love it fills my heart and I know Grant receives it too.
The day before my son died a right wing troll shot a video of me on the train after her maskless friend sitting in our seats exposed himself to me and I lost it. Edited video shared by Jack Posobiec did a show on OANN with it , Dinish D’Souza shared to millions. Got threats 1/6
