I keep getting reports of deteriorating conditions in DC jail for January 6 defendants including more abuse, solitary punishment, and threats. Anyone paying attention @Jim_Jordan @ChuckGrassley? It sounds like they need help and intervention.
Very frustrating and their families have no where to turn. Grievances filed but going no where.

Reading through January 6 court docs and here's a gem from US DOJ: "It is true that one police officer lost his life (and more than a hundred officers were injured) in connection with the attack on the Capitol."

One. More. Time. If January 6 was as bad as they claim, why lie?
It is a motion to deny pre-trial release for a nonviolent offender and signed by the acting U.S. Attorney in D.C. Amazing.
Oh and by the way, it worked. This particular defendant is being held in solitary confinement conditions, denied bon, in the DC Deplorable Jail.

Now listening to second plea deal for J6 defendant Paul Hodgkins. His charges:

“Took selfies” in the Capitol. There were prayers going on, MY GOD.

How is this real?

Listening to court hearing for J6 defendant. Federal prosecutor lying that the protest resulted in "several deaths." No correction by judge.
Here's the gist: DOJ rushed to arrest people, then petition for pre-trial detention. Now they ask judges for ANOTHER 60 day delay because they have so much evidence they can't pull it together. And government lawyers misleading courts about fatalities. Judges going along.
Tim Hale-Cusanelli is not charged of any violent crimes yet he has been behind bars since his arrest in January. justice.gov/usao-dc/case-m…

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.”

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.

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.
amgreatness.com/2021/04/26/the…
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
amgreatness.com/2021/05/10/why…
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
amgreatness.com/2021/04/26/the…
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: amgreatness.com/2021/02/22/gar…

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: amgreatness.com/2021/04/26/the…
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.” buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetil…
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

I'll cover 2:30 detention hearing for Richard Barnett, the man photographed in Pelosi's office. I explain his case here--he turned himself in January 8 and has been in jail ever since. Barnett is in solitary in DC jail and reportedly was attacked by guards
amgreatness.com/2021/04/12/ind…
About to get started. Judge Cooper is an Obama appointee and he’s married to a former top aide to Eric Holder.
Judge asks for update on discovery. DOJ says should have to defense next week. Barnett was arrested a few days after protest and has been in jail ever since so obviously so rush to put the case together.

Government now showing video evidence. Many defense lawyers complaining that feds are cherry-picking video. Just now, government “skips” over part of full video. Khater lawyer raises objection amgreatness.com/2021/04/26/the…
DOJ argument is that after Khater allegedly sprayed the pepper spray or whatever it was, it disabled 3 cops and therefore they aided the raid on the Capitol. But video also shows a massive cloud of chemical spray beforehand. Winds were 20 mph that day per a separate filing.
Tanios lawyer also now objecting to DOJ cherry-picking of video evidence. Claims feds are omitting exculpatory comments.

I honestly cannot believe our government is wasting time on this.

It wasn't just leftist corporate media who lied about January 6 fatalities. Let's look at NRO:

"Authorities have arrested more than 300 people in connection with the Capitol riot, which left five people dead, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer."

nationalreview.com/news/george-w-…
"The House voted to impeach Trump after he incited a mob of his supporters to amass at the Capitol, after which the mob breached the building and forced lawmakers to evacuate. One Capitol police officer died after being injured by rioters."
nationalreview.com/news/trump-aim…
"He watched idly as the rioters sacked the people’s House, defaced the legislative branch with urine and feces, interrupted the operation of government, and caused death and destruction."

When you see crocodile tears from Senate Republicans SHOCKED at Biden's radical agenda, remember how many voted to empower this fast-moving disaster.

GOP Senators who confirmed the most Biden cabinet picks: Collins (all 21 so far); Murkowski, Portman, Romney (19); Graham (17)...
Grassley, McConnell, Rounds, Capito (16); Blunt, Fischer, Burr, Cornyn, Johnson (15); Sullivan, Rounds, Tillis (14).

Hawley voted against 19, Cruz, R. Scott against 18.

They don't even know how to use the little leverage they have. GOP owns this wreck of an administration, too.
But hey some good news! They did torpedo Neera Tanden because she tweeted mean things about them. At least Senate GOP makes they priorities obvious for all to see.

Listening to FDA/CDC call. This clot has been found in women ages 18-49. One patient died, one in critical condition. FDA will revise fact sheet to include adverse reaction info. Says events are extremely rare.
Doctors are advised that people who present low platelet count should inquire whether the patient has been vaccinated with JJ shot.
Meeting tomorrow to review data. Keep in mind this vaccine has only been widely available for less than 2 months.

Admits “many people” experience fever, headaches, pain, etc after all vaccines.

Advises anyone who has severe symptoms to JJ go to doctor.

We’ll now see how the lie about Officer Sicknick’s death still is peddled by media: “The attack comes less than three months after the Jan. 6 insurrection that left five people dead, including Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick.” washingtonpost.com/local/public-s…
“Evans’ death rocked a force already reeling since the Jan. 6 mob attack on the Capitol that left another officer, Brian Sicknick, dead.”

politico.com/news/2021/04/0…
The source of the lie still lying “Nearly 140 officers suffered injuries during a deadly assault on the building Jan. 6 by a pro-Trump mob. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of injuries he sustained during the siege.”
