    1. @Kathy Parrish we already established that whatever Trump did or didn’t do it doesn’t meet the legal definition of ” treason ”
      Trump never told anyone to kick in windows or break down doors and Trump is direct involved in coordinating the response by law enforcement or national guard

    2. @Carlos Carlos All trump had to do was accept the election results…period..none of this would have happened..smfh

    1. @Mad Mike says the religious type cultist that believes the democratic party is pure good….psss they’re all politicians, which makes them all liars.

    2. @Jock Young thats funny because everyone was fine with the BLM and Antifa riots that have been going on since 2016. But as soon as republicans protest a stolen election democrats want to claim its an attack on democracy and start jailing protestors. Putin would be proud.

  1. We the people deserve Justice and for that we need to know: who, why, when and especially how the insurrection happened.

    1. @Guy North So, the FBI is unelected and unaccountable? Well, we sure they think so. Glad to see “liberals” do too.

    2. @Edward Riley “Dealt with?” He was given probation for commiting a felony, that frankly is treasonous. That’s hardly dealt with. You think he acted alone? That’s cute. And keep going on about being brainwashed by the media, as you spew proven lies concerning the Russian hoax. You clearly aren’t aware of the irony.

    3. @Timothy Muller he said Carter Page was not a CIA contact. Treasonous?
      Horowitz still said the warrants would have been granted. He told someone he was working for t and the Russians at a bar in England. Page is a Russian asset by his own words.

    4. @Edward Riley ofcoarse warrants would have been granted, the fbi, cia and any other agency run by the deep state would have done anything for clinton and obama

  2. Americans have a lot of questions about the insurrection. Most Americans want answers, most republicans don’t.

    1. @Zennbubba That is a BIG LIE….Georgia counted each ballot 3 times…Every state that Dump contested re-counted over and over…Dump lies and said only Democrats got to count ballots….IN EVERY STATE, AT LEAST ONE REPUBLICAN AND ONE DEMOCRAT COUNTS BALLOTS..THERE WAS NO STEAL, MISTAKES ARE MADE, BUT WHEN A CLOSE ELECTION, ALL BALLOTS ARE RE-COUNTED…..THERE WAS NO CLOSE ELECTION, IN ANY STATE….THE ARIZONA AUDIT SHOULD NEVER HAVE TAKEN PLACE…NOW THAT GROUP HAS PEOPLES NAMES, ADDRESSES, PHONE NUMBERS, AND ANY OTHER INFORMATION THAT GOES WITH VOTER REGISTRATION….INVASION OF PRIVACY, EVERY ARIZONA PERSON THAT VOTED SHOULD FILE A LAWSUIT…YOU CAN FILE AND WIN LAWSUITS AGAINST A STATE…I DID….

    2. @may wilson Georga did a fractional audit not a full forensic audit. You should stop getting all your info from CNN/MSNBC

    3. @may wilson OH and there is also this little problem going on in Ga in addition to many big problems they have there. “Jun 14th, 7:02 PM
      187 months
      1611
      At this time, 67% of 404,000 absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes in Georgia, have no chain of custody documentation as required. That means that there is no documentation as to who picked up the ballots, who had custody of the ballots and who brought the ballots to be counted. The Open Records Request laws in Georgia state that counties have 3 days to respond to a request. 37 counties have failed to produce these records.” But you will not find this kind of news here.

    4. @James Conroy Fewer and Fewer Americans are Republicans. There’s no logical problem with Margo’s statement once you wrap your mind around that tidbit of Truth.

  3. trump incited an armed insurrection on january 6 2021 to overthrow a fair democratic election

    1. @Guy North The majority of Americans know this, but unfortunately we’re being dragged down by a minority of idiots. Same reason we can’t get a handle on COVID

    2. @Joseph Stanhope; No – America DOES NOT know this Sir, because I speak of it all the time and people are totally clueless!! You are right about being dragged down by a small minority though.

    3. @Guy North Yes they do know this. The problem is that they all suffer from Adult oppositional defiant disorder. They know right from wrong. It’s a game to them. Read about this syndrome.

    4. @Joseph Stanhope; You are so very right, honestly it is only about 20% or less that are the true drumpf fools, the cult!

    5. @Guy North 74 million votes for Trump
      80 million for Biden ( still do not believe Biden is more popular then Obama )
      5% is in prison.
      Around 10% that cannot vote do to their not citizens. ( maybe higher )
      This is out of 331 million people in America this is by UN.. Only 177 million ( give or take ) voted so it’s just a little over half the country voted on 2 parties.

  4. The FBI should be investigating if any republican reps were in contact with insurrectionists. Boebart should be investigated for giving out the speakers location also.

    1. @Bunn E. Fartz my guess is he was either in contact with some of the insurrectionists or someone in the pentagon, maybe Flynns brother, the other traitor still serving, the one who was involved in the hold up of the national guard. There’s lots of investigations needed and the FBI is supposed to investigate domestic terrorism and espionage. Because Flynn was working with foreign governments, so his brother could also be. Seems like that family are trying to start up the confederate army again

  5. Kevin McCarthy is already acting like a mean girl because Speaker Pelosi asked Cheney and Kinzinger to be on the 1/6 committee..

    1. He wants to be House Leader so bad, he will do anything to get it….USA People has to do everything they can to stop him…Vote in 2022, to stop the steal..LMAO Republicans have lost their minds….

    2. @Matthew Clark ha ha ha…yeh sure they are. And the GOP leadership obviously think differently to you … not able to get their ‘like minded’ people on it.

  6. Who funded the weapons, assembly permits, hotel rooms, plane flights, or bus rides of the January 6 Rioters?

    1. @Jay Gibsonhopefully convict Trump and label the repulican party in the same category as Al-Qaeda.

    1. @SuperThumpasaurus
      Well? T***p was the enemy and the majority of people who trespassed and did break windows, climb inside the Capitol were trying to give Aid and Comfort to the Orange Putin.

    2. @SuperThumpasaurus Notice how I purposefully used the words insurrection and treason. I know the difference.

    3. @Dino Shame on you for making light of this like it was nothing! People died! Police Officers were beaten with flag poles with the American flag still attached. wa and over a 100 severely injured Police Officers many are permanently disabled. Those creeps broke into “OUR HOUSE” that’s right your house and my house too and rubbed their feces on the walls. They defecated and urinated all over, like animals, they stole items, damaged and disrespected our house. 5 people died and hundreds of lives are worse forever.

  7. We have had 2 impeachment hearings with subpenas not being upheld, witnesses not appearing…even with just those 2 exhibits as evidence, there is more than enough to make sure all subpenas are fulfilled and all witnesses called to testify. That is justice

  8. McCarthy is fake-fuming and acting like a Karen. He got exactly what he wanted: an excuse to whine like a child. He selected Jordan and Banks to have them rejected by Pelosi so he can complain about it because he thinks it makes him look good to Trumplicans. It’s a calculated Karen move on his part. He knows that they’re both insurrectionists and knew they’re unacceptable on an investigation into the insurrection itself.

    1. @Chris Smith In Dump Impeachment, they got it wrong and named, Lee the one to hand McCarthy the phone…OMG Lee acted like a little girl, yelling and screaming, throwing a temper tantrum….I never seen so many pansies in a bunch of so called men…

    2. Lmao!! The real issue is why do they need another bipartisan investigation when one already took place? The findings had already shown President Trump to be not at fault, in addition, to the arrests, the statements found that President Trump was not the cause of the incident..
      Seems like it is ok to do the whole investigation over again to achieve the desired results..
      Yet, dems claim to be fair, law abiding, have integrity and honesty..
      This is simply a witchhunt now because if there was really a problem, it should have been expressed during the initial investigation..

    3. McCarthy is taking a que from trump and giving the Republicans on the committee ‘ Pelosi Republicans’.Smh

      This people want to keep their jobs and power so bad that they don’t seem to care about America or how history will judge them

  9. He knew what would happen. Some of them arrived with climbing gear.
    He wanted them to stop a democratic process, thinking he would continue playacting as potus.

    1. They have the orders from him that ordered DC police and National Guard to be understaffed and unequipped on the 6th. As well as orders to “support the protestors”.
      The orange traitor planned it all.

    1. That’s what this inquiry is about. To Find Who’s Responsible. Any ideas on who it is? Then you have to find conclusive evidence that THEY are responsible.

    2. @Mitch Garbeno There have been over 587 individuals arrested and charged for the insurrection 7 months later.

    3. @K Nelson But, are they the leaders? A bunch idiots aren’t leaders, they are just the minions. We need to find the instigators.

  10. What worries me is no one will take their supenoes seriously. They need to lock them up and stop playing nice with them…

    1. Only this time the department of justice is not being run by a trump loyalist like Barr. They know this time if they ignore suspenses there will be consequences.

  11. Planning a demonstration, no matter how misguided the cause, is perfectly legal. Planning an insurrection is not. We must always keep this in mind.

  12. There is one and only one reason that Republicans would block a Bi-Partisan investigation = Guilty as Charged.

    1. This is not that this is only like minded people can serve on the committee just like nasty Nancy fake impeachment

  13. The enemy from within needs to be rooted out like a rotten festering sore, Republicans need to pay in the elections to show them this won’t be tolerated

  14. “There’s no question, none, that President Trump is practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day,”
    ~ Mitch McConnell.
