House hearing on January 6 commission. Rep. Bennie Thompson already lying that a police officer was killed in the "insurrection" and several others died. Again, if what happened at the Capitol was so unforgiveable and criminal, why do they lie about what happened?
Now @RepJohnKatko who voted to impeach Trump and negotiated with Democrats to craft this “fair” legislation urges his colleagues to put down their “swords” and vote for January 6 commission. Hope he has a primary candidate.
Another GOP impeacher @RepMeijer rises in support of commission. Let’s hope he’s a one-termer. Now @RepJoshG lies about Officer Sicknick but wants “facts.” LOL calls Oath Keepers “violent.”
Rep. Jeffries comparing this to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. I’m so embarrassed for these people. “Lives were lost.” Wonder if anyone will mention Ashli Babbitt. These morons still wearing masks. @JimLangevin also comparing 9/11 to January 6.
Sheesh. @RepFredUpton says January 6 will haunt him for a long time. “People died.” The “core of democracy was threatened.” Dear God - “who knows how many of our heads would have been swinging from the gallows” but for USCP then condemns political rhetoric.
I will say it’s refreshing to hear so many Democrats who insist America is systematically racist now boast about our great democracy and unity and the Constitution.
Now @RepYvetteClarke calls protestors “bloodthirsty sycophants” and mentions Brian Sicknick.

Now@Swalwell. “We survived it once. We won’t survive it again.”

3 cops lost their lives?? “Don’t walk away from these cops.”
“Some have died” @RepValDemings says about Capitol police officers.

Once again, nice to see Democrats abandon their usual talking points. Cops, democracy, Constitution now cool
PELOSI: January 6 one of the “darkest days in American history.” Multiple deaths, she claimed, and says House members were traumatized.

But they prevailed! “We returned to the Capitol.”

Now comparing 9/11 to January 6. What an insult to America and to the victims of 9/11.
PELOSI: Domestic terrorist attack by “armed” mob.

Tom Keane and Lee Hamilton, chairmen of 9/11 Commission, endorse January 6 commission. It was “one of the darkest days in history.” They mean January 6. Dear God.
MTG: Brings up BLM/Antifa riots.

Good. MTG says 400+ arrested for January 6 and some held for 23 hours in solitary.
LOL good: @RepDanBishop: "It was the worst example of an insurrection in the history of mankind." Wonders why Democrats only worried about police attacks from January 6 and turned a "blind eye" to other political violence.
Now @chiproytx saying he has questions about DOJ investigation and 440+ arrested, detained so far.

You can watch @replouiegohmert floor speech from earlier today about the abusive January 6 investigation. On behalf of the people unjustly caught up in this manhunt, I want to thank him for speaking up for these detainees and their families.
Linking here the articles Rep. Gohmert mentioned in his speech.…

A Reagan appointed judge just denied bond, including a $15 million offer, to two men charged with spraying Officer Sicknick. They are in solitary confinement in DC jail PRE-TRIAL. The men have no criminal record--the judge is litigating the case.…
He's still preaching. Admits there is no risk of flight for either man but this is a crime of violence. Keep in mind, Tanios did not use the spray. "All good history" for both defendants. He's now arguing against himself but whatevs.
LOL they don't belong to a "radical right wing group," referring to Proud Boys. These people are political prisoners, straight up. "They helped with the breach of the Capitol."

Under pressure by media orgs, DOJ finally released what it claimed shows "attack" on Sicknick. (It didn't) Defense lawyers complained it was cherry-picked (it was) and they had no access to full video that could include exculpatory evidence. I explain here…
I'm listening to bond hearing for Julian Khater and George Tanios, the two men who've been in jail since March for "attacking" Officer Sicknick. I wrote about dubious case here…
Julian Khater's family is asking to post $15 million bond. He has no criminal record, never entered the Capitol, and feds have a beyond sketchy case against both men for "spraying" Officer Sicknick. BTW, it wasn't bear spray, another lie told by the media.

Some on the “Right” may suddenly start to realize that Joe Biden’s DOJ is as bad, perhaps worse, than Barack Obama’s. Garland has made clear his intention to use Jan 6 as a pretext to prosecute normal Americans who supported Donald Trump. A few reminders:…
Biden’s DOJ use of an obscure law to criminalize nonviolent political protest…
Biden’s DOJ seeking indefinite pre-trial detention for nonviolent protestors, many held in solitary confinement in a fetid DC jail…

I’m watching House Appropriations subcommittee hearing with AG Merrick Garland. January 6 “attack” already raised, Dems poised to boost funding for “domestic violent extremism,” code for Trump supporters. GOP ranking member @Robert_Aderholt already commending Garland.
Garland: Asks for $45 million for FBI and $40 million to US Attorneys office to manage “increasing domestic terrorism caseloads.” Also boost for Civil Rights division to protect voting rights and prosecuting hate crimes.
It’s very clear Democrats expect DOJ to be very aggressive against state election reforms. Garland signals he will.

ICYMI—My updates this week on January 6 detainees. 2 men accused of “attacking” Brian Sicknick remain behind bars denied bail. But in a hearing this week, feds admit neither used bear spray against the deceased officer; another Capitol attack myth exposed:…
DOJ seeking protective orders to keep video evidence under seal even from defense lawyers and media. After FOIA demand, DOJ released clearly cherry picked clips trying to show Sicknick “attack.”…
Richard Barnett, the man I wrote about here, finally was released from DC jail after almost 4 months behind bars. Judge cited Munchel ruling as reason but not before repeating lie that 5 people were killed and some Q bs…
