  1. All those Republicans Senators and representatives should be expelled! They have to take the responsibility! They have to pay the price.

    • @Wonder Wonderful No they don’t, this is all Republicans, they all support this, it’s minority rule because they know they cant win a majority any more. Trump = GOP, they are one and the same, in policies, in lack of morality, in lies and in supporting corporations and the elite rich oligarchs rather than supporting the American people. They NEVER put country first, never! They are scum and we need to remove them all from office, the sooner the better.

    • Hope in the upcoming days, people will really think about their choices. To be there, or not. They will be facing federal charges much harsher than state. As if state charges aren’t bad enough. Remember trump will say he doesn’t know you.

    • HANG THEM FOR TREASON

    • @Wonder Wonderful sure they aren’t they just vote Republican and often have public support from Republican senators. So sure the nazi isn’t a nazi….🙄

  2. The GOP embraced Fascism. You CAN’T come back from that.

    • But they will.

    • They did more than embraced it

    • @Deonte Taylor Unless they take responsibility of their actions which they’re doing a horrible job picking up the peces.

      The GOP is going to have to Reboot to ever get elected again

    • Someone else said it well:

      We need to outlaw harmful speech and symbols of hatred or bigotry.

      Inciting violence or encouraging threats of harm is wrong.

      We all know that, but make no mistake, this was centuries in the making.

      Nazi or confederate flags should not be allowed.

      We don’t need statues or military bases to honor white supremacists or traitors.

      Nooses cross the line.

      White pointed hats are a no no.

      Germany figured this out 70 years ago.

      We can too.

      This is not free speech. It is terrorism.

  3. “You can lightly threaten them.” – Literally a felony.

    • That’s light treason

    • And if someone “lightly threatened” to toss him out of his wheelchair and then hurt him while he was stuck and unable to get away, would that be OK?

    Please take a few minutes to contact your Senators support impeachment your voice matters especially if you live in purple or red states.

    • On Jan 6th 2021…..
      Trump told his supporters the election was stolen and asked for their support to help stop the certification of the Electoral College vote.
      SOME of those very same supporters bolstered by his words murdered a policeman whilst attacking the Capitol to do what they believed he asked them to do.

      On February the 5th 2020 at Donald J Trumps first impeachment trial fifty three G.O.P. Senators had the opportunity to stop the chaos and destruction of January 6th 2021.
      Instead they chose their personal and party politics over the law and acquitted Trump without calling for witnesses and examining evidence.
      One said that ” He had learnt his lesson.”
      It appears to me the lesson taught was that he thinks he is immune from consequences by holding onto power, lying and gaslighting.

      Will the senate betray America AGAIN?

      IMPEACH (i.m.o. convict remove and charge with sedition/treason).

    They should be prosecuted for fueling the flames of a lie!

  6. They are all TRAITORS to democracy!

  7. It’s important to remember to not let them separate from this. The whole republican party.

  8. There were fewer deaths at Benghazi than at our Nation’s Capital.

    • ??? Who gives a crap..what’s that have to do with ANYTHING…???

    • @HoboMaster tRump is DIRECTLY and Personally Responsible for the Pandemic by Gutting Obama’s Pandemic response teams and taking Zero action against its spread..tRump in Fact Propagated it as much as he could..even holding Super Spreader events and Mocking Mask wearers…he should face Criminal Mass Murder charges .no Question.

      @Robert Taylor 4 American deaths in a foreign country, the Republicans spent months and millions of dollars holding committee hearings after hearings failing to place the blame on Hillary Clinton. 5 American deaths in the nation’s capital during an insurrection stirred by their leader… cricket chirps.

    The GOP French kissed Fascism. There’s no getting that spit out

    Ted Cruz quoting Independence Day would be weird if he hadn’t done that Simpsons thing years ago. What a joke

  11. They’re all complicit and have been since day one. History will not look kindly upon them . You reap what you sow !

  14. Let’s not forget that Lauren Boebert was tweeting their location and Nancy Pelosi’s location when the rioters were searching for them in the capitol building

    • James McCreery | January 12, 2021 at 10:48 PM | Reply

      Conspiracy to commit murder?

    • And earlier today Boebert tweeted her alliance to the US Capital Police, then later, same day, refused and defied the rules, to go through a newly installed metal detector (by the US Capitol Police). GOP is only proof of Hypocrisy now. #LawandOrder is only for the other people….

      Does FBI know about Lauren Boebert?
      Tell them so you can get your 50K.
      Easy money just point out those idiots

    Defend liberty with tyranny, sounds real good there Ted.

    Treasonous thugs. They should all be tried and put in jail for inciting violence and sedition.

  17. All of these men are seditionists and traitors. Sick, sick, sick.

  18. Joan Javellana | January 12, 2021 at 10:55 PM | Reply

    I cannot believe they aren’t being expelled from Congress. They should also be criminally prosecuted for inciting that riot.

  19. The 90% Must be held responsible for their actions. Period.

  20. I’m no medical expert but these Republican “leaders” are proof you don’t need a spine to walk upright.
