  1. Safe Guarding the Rule of Law starts at the Top.
    The NSA, CIA, and FBI have more than Enough information to Charge Dirty Politicians who Caused Jan 06.
    Start by Charging those at the Top.

    1. Well when they build those cases they want to aim so they cannot miss. Prosecutors are held to a higher standard than defense attorneys. We have to have the facts…all they need is a loophole. This is why many criminal defense attorneys are drunks.

    2. When you start at the top for those responsible for 2018s insurrection

    3. @Kelly Sanders – It’s a tedious trollolloller… *no* facts *or* evidence *matter* to it, as *made obvious by* its screenname.

    1. @The Heretic Cohen testified about Trump routinely submitting false valuations for his assets and was asked if he could provide Congress with evidence where Trump had submitted different valuations for the same assets for insurance, tax and loan purposes. Cohen responded that he could and would provide that evidence…

    2. @CynAnne1Sad for you Trump is only a tool and the beginning. Bad things are coming for the so called wise.

    3. @Helen Short so let me get this straight. Your substantiation that Michael Cohen proved his allegations is that he testified to them in front of Congress and said he could and would prove them?

      So win a prosecutor sits in front of a judge and accuse someone of a crime and says not only can they prove it and they will prove it we pretty much just end the trial right there right?

      I mean why go on? They’ve obviously proven it right? I’ll get to your other asinine comment shortly. Your incompetence is exhausting

    4. @CynAnne1 when your honest there is no fear. The weak cowards ideologs like you. Fear God one day you will eaten by worms.

    1. The FBI is in deep turmoil right now. They got caught up in politics and several of their top leaders were fired or resigned in disgrace. We should be very careful trying to make it easy for organization such as the FBI or state or local police departments. We need to ensure that they follow the constitution, Follow local laws and attempt to regain a degree of professionalism. We should be careful trying to make it easier for them because it could be much harder on the innocent citizen.

  2. I can see members of congress trying to find ways to attack the FBI ,that is the problem (Mike Lee and Josh)

    1. The way this is up, a person has to be sworn in in a Court of Law, in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, you walk through the door? It’s automatic.
      The reason it’s set up that way would be the absolutly INSANE amount of time it would take for every person to be sworn in every day.

  3. Okay so American citizens are getting arrested, but what about the Congress who has made more criminal actions?

    1. @Steph You’re wrong, you’re in a cult & you’re a fascist. Reported to the FBI. Cheers!

    2. ​@Politicians are cancer Deserve to hang What dems have committed treason, sedition, & have incited an insurrection?

      NONE. That was all the GQP, Tr*mp & his M@G@t cult members.

  4. It’s funny how the same elected leaders u spoke about, are sitting in that room, without any doubt contributed to the insurrection.

    1. @Tyeler Nowell You’re right. Trump never instructed anyone to charge up the steps and breach the capitol. He did no such thing.

    2. @A T oh that’s where you are wrong. Because he did. You really think that if he didn’t then those people wouldnt have said that they did what they did at trumps bidding? Because multiple people who have been arrested for their actions have stated that they did it at his direction. So your lying. What’s your horrible apologist excuse for that huh?

    3. @A T wow, are you that stupid as to think the words “go riot” are needed to intice a riot? Did the people who started rioting after rodney king’s death in the 90s hear the words “go riot” in the public out cry afterwards? How about the Seattle riots back then too? Were those words uttered?
      So what if he never said to do that DIRECTLY, he still said something to convince them to go attempt to overthrow a democratic process.
      Like I said, your just an apologist for trump. That’s sick.

    1. Ever taxpayer in the United States of America should be angry with some not all of the members of this Congress. We pay their salaries, health care , they work we are their employers. Just my opinion…..SMH

    1. @X2 GI oh also blm is a terrorist org and Dems that support it are black supremacists

    2. @X2 GI LOLLLL SO WHAT ABOUT when the FBI admitted that the Steele dossier was literally a conversation at a bar that an mi6 agent had with a Russian agent?? Zero credibility whatsoever. It’s LITERALLY Russian falsehoods, but they lied to the FISA court anyway to get a warrant. That’s not Fox News, that’s the reality. But leftists know nothing about reality.

    3. @Thomas Butler What about Trump calling the Georgia State Secretary insisting on over 11,000 of Biden’s voters be given to him? A Georgia prosecutor will be setting a court date for Trump soon.

  5. Targeted people, gouged out ones eye, almost crushed another in the door, unless that was the same person, beating someone with a flag pole.
    Yelling to hang someone, brought and set up gallows, carried zip ties, saying they wanted to shoot the speaker in the head.
    Barbaric

    1. @Greg Hammond Before Jorge Floyd was killed he was nothing but a low live crook that didn’t benefit society now all of sudden he is glorified as a hero because he was killed by a white cop..

    2. @Marion Opisso – *Never forget* #45’s then-contemporaneous tweet about how “V.P. Mike” should’ve ‘done the right thing’…
      *All* that was missing was *the **#HorseheadInTheBed** emoji.*

    3. @Greg Hammond
      Another “Hi, I’m clueless” comment, 5 people have died as the result of ONE SINGLE ATTACK on the Capital Building, it does not compare to 40 people dying regarding multiple riots that were the RESULT of BLM protests, they were not CAUSED by the BLM protestors.

  6. When you put the big pinch on Baby Cheeto and his clown posse…then we’ll be satisfied.

    1. Mmmmmm, noooo. The Enablers must pay. They are weak, gullible minds who cannot be trusted to act in the Public Interest outside white, Christian, conservatism the front for their corporate greed.

    2. Still waiting on that pinch for the left wing extremists.

      We’ll be here for a while….

  7. Meanwhille on Fox News, they are talking about Dr. Seuss books, then they will lie tonight by saying there was no evidence of domestic terrorism.

    1. U say that while watching msnbc who imploys Brian Williams who has never told a lie or Rachel Maddow who had proof of Russia interference haha

    2. @love bug And thank you for proving to us that you watch Fox News because everything you said is false, BS, conspiracy theories, racist, and has no basis in facts.

    3. @Brandy Courvoisier – All of #45’s cadre are headed to either Fox ‘News’, OAN or Newsmax…because *no* reputable news network will hire them.

    4. The Dr. Seuss situation is just an example of a larger issue. The problem of cancel culture, subjective censorship, trampling on Freedom of Speech+Press.
      So, mocking a news outlet just Bc they’re reporting stuff like this + the Mr Potato head thing, without considering if there’s a deeper meaning, is short sighted and very partisan. Not to mention the fact that it’s news….Meaning a _news_ outlet should report it. regardless of how important you personally find it to be, and despite the fact that you may disagree + it doesn’t align with your personal views.
      God bless

    1. @Politicians are cancer Deserve to hang
      Hillary didnt do anything. How many times was she investigating by the Republicans?

  8. Why wasn’t trump arrested. He was the main instigator of the attempted coup on 6th Jan, as was donny jnr and some GOP members.

    1. @Angael Tartar Rose You definitely don’t know much than.
      If by law we could just use the evidence, used by the Democrats in the House from the impeachment.
      Than 21 Democrats would be charged with Perjury is considered a crime against justice, since lying under oath if they were compelled to swear in, they compromised the authority of courts, grand juries, constitutional law. Other crimes against justice include criminal contempt of court, tampering with evidence. All which should one by one bean charged by the FBI. But since the FBI are a Terrorist Organization. None of this can be, which is the biggest point that the FBI willfully, knowingly was working as a sponsor of terror in the United States. Which is the biggest reason CIA should infiltrate and the military should take over untill a proper and just tribunal like the Hague and the Nazi’s were conducted and EVERYONE in congress should be held responsible for the everything that has been done. Including 100% the FBI.

    2. @Nancy Douglas yes a lot more hate and who should be thrown out and what to do with others. Does a load of bricks have to fall on their heads to make them see?

    3. @Angael Tartar Rose he thinks he is still president and he will keep thinking it as long as so many of his people will let him keep saying it over and over again.

    4. @Stephen Pettyjohn If the instigator was of Color it would not be any questions asked. There will be a Reckoning of this wicked country and its corrupted people and rulers.

  9. Lindsey graham was hilarious. “What does it take to make the list”, translation “I’m sick of my life being threatened and drinking Kool aid
