WATCH LIVE: Trump rioters break through barrier and are attempting to break into the Capitol

Trump’s “call for peace”

  • Repeatedly lied that the election was stolen and the anger is justified
  • Said “we love you” to the rioters
  • Called the people the rioters are protesting “evil.”

This is arguably even worse than his “condemnations” of the Charlottesville Nazis or the Proud Boys.

Nah, their cases won’t get to court before 2 weeks are out.

[edt] Mist if these chuckleheads won’t even be charged for a couple weeks.

I think that’s the VA National Guard.

But maybe the DoD changed their mind, too?

RTFA. “The Washington D.C. National Guard was mobilized to help federal law enforcement tamp down the insurrection, according to chief Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman.”

From the sound of things, the DC guard has finally been mobilized. I suspect the Trump lackey gumming up the works realized it was pointless since VA and MA were both sending their own contingents.

No. They need to be arrested and tried for treason. I want them to have no reason to get out on a technicality. None.

You and me both.

Once these cretins are cleared out they better get congress back in there and finish their business. They better not let these assholes slow us down.

They all could have evacuated to the Greenbrier to finish the job. The bunker out there is equipped for gov. business continuation.

I don’t think the Greenbriar is active for that anymore. They give sightseeing tours of that. We don’t know where the active government bunker is because it would not be much help if we did.

DC should hold them as long as they can without charges and either release them without charges to arrest them at latter date & delay in providing any identifying information to the feds till after the inauguration.

Or just hold them as material witnesses till the inauguration & delay providing information to the feds then.

Then charge as appropriate. These are very exigent circumstances.
