    1. Lol.. baby girl! Have you read history? Do you understand what is going to happen? It’s not good:(

    1. @Seth Thomas Considering that you haven’t even attempted to make an actual point, I can only assume that you are simply here to troll.

    2. @BULL WRINKLE so that’s a direct threat of violence. You filthy conservatives continue to show yourself a as the traitors you are.

  1. Thank you Mr. Capehart for asking the question that has long boggled my mind. Why have charges sedition not been brought against the insurrectionists? It’s long overdue someone asked.

    1. @Greg Bors Well said! People protesting for their civil rights is completely different than insurrecionists trying to overthrow an election.

    2. @Greg Bors lmao nice try. They got 2 seats in our government while they are telling the black communities to go scratch…

    3. @Sophie Robinson I heard it from the blm founders mouth but that was a good try troll. That’s a nice multi million dollar shopping spree they are going on, probably could have helped out the black community but noooo screw them

    1. Preach it, Chris! But I’ve got to say that trying to reason with these Russian ‘bots, trumpers, cultists, or whoever they are is like talking to a wall.

    2. @justsnappy well ain’t you just a sweet heart…..you wouldn’t have happened to participated in the big party on January 6th, 2021….did you???????

    3. @Chris Gilliam Man Stuff While there are varying levels of supporters. The fact that they voted for him means they must support his policy’s more than Joes
      But you’ll spit hairs and do your doublespeak. I’ve seen enough of your type. But its been fun thanks for the laughs .

    4. @ARC Raider I support most of his policies, that doesn’t mean I would demean myself by voting for him. He’s a POS as a person. And I’m conservative.

    1. @Mimzy Jinx look at how big a tantrum you throw rather than just look it up and see that I’m right. Would have only taken a few seconds, instead you decided to spend much more time publicly making a fool of yourself. Congrats.

    2. @Mimzy Jinx i hope you realize that everone that reads this will just look it up, and see that you are wrong. Gj embarrassing yourself tho.

    3. @Mimzy Jinx Police have separate bullets for Democrats and separate bullets for republicans? Which bullets do they use on Independents?

    4. @Terry Fulds Yep. They just looked it up. Every death connected with a mob is the responsibility of everyone who participated in that mob. BLM=KKK. Look it up.

  2. The first to cooperate gets the best deal, and this guy Schaeffer is well positioned to lay out a bunch of dirty laundry. And the stragglers will be table fare for the prosecutors.

    1. @UCygMzhmPfk4yL0I5YE_DyTA from what I’ve heard in articles and opinion pieces, the Federal Government’s way of going after people like this is significantly different than how cities, counties, and states do it, i.e., if the Feds get a hold of you, you’re basically 10 kinds of screwed.

      So we’ll see what happens.

    2. If there was any way there will be consequences, the tattle tale guy would be in big trouble with his associates. I do not have any confidence in the federal prosecutors after Trump got off twice from being impeached. Hope they can have these folks put in federal prison for a long long time though.

    3. @kathi Well, these are all white folks, so if we look at the situation realistically, I think we’ll be lucky if most of them get 2-5 years in federal prison. Schaffer is looking at 41-51 months with his plea deal. He was facing 30 years, so I think he made a pretty good deal. I think the prosecutors will make examples of the worst offenders. They may end up with some serious time (10-20 years or more). We need to deter people from storming the Capitol again.

  3. They are all guilty of sedition and now they get 3yr for snitching. That’s BS seems our justice system needs to update laws or do away with them. Privileged rich people.

    1. How exactly do you define sedition? I’d say it’s more appropriate to site the Time magazine article where “a cabal” of wealthy and influential people “fortified” the election against Trump.

      I’d define it as all mainstream news sources conspiratorially covering up biden’s backroom deals with China through his son, then saying it’s actually true after the election.

      It could also be convincing people that “russian bounties” were placed on American troops, blaming Trump for not addressing it, and then reporting months later that it was a hoax.

      It could be democrat phony ballots from literally *thousands* of documented parking lots masquerading as residences.

      Perhaps it was impeaching Trump twice for *exactly* what biden did in Ukraine. “You’re not getting the billion dollars”.

      The people at the capital on Jan 6 were there to legitimately peacefully protest, unlike the charade of blm activities, and the movement was hijacked by people looking to cause a riot. CNN even had the rabble rouser on their show after he was on camera inciting the crowd.

      It’s time to put our critical thinking hats on and actually look at what’s been going on objectively.

    2. @Nathan Lewis I guess you don’t know how to read the news.

      I’ll cite you every article if you actually want to read them.

    3. @David Hunt you could have saved yourself seven paragraphs..
      There are a whole bunch of dictionaries and websites online that define sedition,
      Not what your ” ponderings” come up with.

    4. @Cee Edwards woo, if you think those are “paragraphs”, I hope you aren’t required to write or read much in your daily life. Might be too much of the polysylllabulous avoirdupois to handle.

    1. @Roy Mercer Justice doesn’t move swiftly like it does in tv shows and movies. But Justice she always comes. I am excited to watch the scales of Justice put back its rightful place. Be Well

    2. @TruthisLight Keep clinging on to that lie about Russia collusion then lol Letting trump live in your head rent free.

  4. Get everything you can from these traitors, then lock them away for life anyways. They must never be allowed to threaten our democracy again.

    1. @darena12 The succession of the Southern States was not treason. It wasn’t even a civil war it was a war fought between two governments, and the north was the aggressor.
      And FYI, I have met more racist northerners than I have Southerners and I live in the south.

    2. @Chris Gilliam Man Stuff your ignorance is truly astounding. Your attempt at revisionist history is pathetic. Go learn your history fool

    3. @darena12 I’m stating facts. The South chose to be a separate nation, the North invaded. What part of that is hard to understand? They weren’t trying to overthrow the US government, merely separate from it.

    4. @Chris Gilliam Man Stuff again your ignorance is astounding. The south attacked first. Fort Sumter was the first attack by your filthy confederate states. You had no right to secede. You had no right to OWN people. Sherman should have kept his March going for years. Now, go learn your actual history you pathetic child.

  5. The Oath keeper turns rat.This won’t end well for him and all those he rats out. Get your popcorn ready.

  6. When are the Congressmen and Senators going to be charged as the leaders of the insurrection, Josh Hawley gave them a closed fist salute of approval. It looked like something out of 1933 Munich Germany.

    1. @Demetria Karnavas I’ve watched over 30 hours of footage of that day. To claim it was a racist, white supremacist, organized occurrence is an uninformed statement. I saw both peaceful people and axxhole instigators. I saw male, female, LGBTQ people. I saw white, black, Hispanic, Asian, everything. I saw some vandalizing, some fighting against the vandals. I saw an officer go down violently, an unarmed female get shot dead….. Those who hurt the innocent should pay heavily. Those who loot and vandalize-some jail time. Those who trespassed-pay fines. Those who peacefully march(against anything) should be permitted to, lest we be returned to slavery under a tyrannical government.

    2. @OlSarge Paps Don’t even know who he is, just don’t think a hand symbol is a jail worthy offense in America, yet.

    3. @Randy Ward I have no quarrel with the rebels without a cause who converged on D.C. to protest Trump’s voter fraud hustle. There’s no law that says that every act of protest has to be in service to a meritorious cause. Trump devoted over two months promoting the propaganda that the election was stolen from him. He should be criminally charged with inciting the riot on the Capitol, as should Guilliani and Powell. My quarrel is with the organized racists and peanut gallery of lemmings who rampaged the Capitol. Incidentally, if you’re pretending that Trump’s political devotees in Congress aren’t aligned politically and ideologically with white supremacy and that this doesn’t represent Trump’ appeal to his base, you’re wasting my time.

    4. @Demetria Karnavas I know racism exists. I’ve lived it. I’m an adopted black male. Adoptive dad was an immigrant Jew from Germany(shot in the head for his Honda by a 16 yr old kid). Adoptive mom is immigrant from Mexico. Seen racism from every direction. Dad taught/warned me about group identity, Facists and Marxists. Both are resentful, hateful, god-less people who want power and believe they are right. I belong to no group(except my family), neither should you.

    5. @Randy Ward If you want to navigate life where everything is relative, that’s your prerogative. Each of us is entitled to interpret the world in whatever way we see fit. I don’t share your viewpoint. The existing power structure in the U.S. didn’t arise and doesn’t operate by happenstance. There are historical, economic and social underpinnings that inform, drive and sustain power. I’ve been representing low-income people for decades and whether or not you want to entertain the notion, government policies create and protect wealth for the wealthy in the same way government creates and perpetuates poverty for the poor. In my book, racism is very real and it’s part of the foundation on which the U.S. rests.

  7. I say charge them with federal charges, and take their right to vote away. They also must agree than any future president cant pardon these federal charges and restore their voting rights.

    1. @Mountain Scribbler Rebecca brings up a good point, but even more importantly, due process is a constitutional right- don’t jump the gun. If these folks are determined to be felons, you want want to write to your democrat legislators and have them drop their push to allow felons a vote.

    2. @David Hunt So the entire US government, even the people Trump appointed and hired are all lying when they say it was fair? People can say and fabricate stories to the press but they don’t try it against the government because they do deep investigations.

    3. @Just Saying well, Trump did a terrible job hiring people, and the entirety of the government doesnt believe that it was fair. All I know is what has been said, omitted, and later on admitted to. “The lie can travel half way around the world before the truth even straps on its boots”.

  8. Tried and true, action. Divide and conquer. The first RAT gets the lightest sentence. Must have forgotten his Oath. Lol

    1. @Zahari Baharom those traitorous “Oath Keepers” are not Americans. They are traitorous racist scum. America is inhabited by people of many faiths, ideas, religions, and beliefs. Tho not perfect we can try to live up to the ideals the best we can. That’s all we can do. Democracy is fragile. We’ve only been doing it for a few hundred years and there’s been a lot of hubbub during those years. World and civil wars started and fought by many nations. We can only try.

    2. @Randy Couch . Only Americans can vote for President. Way MORE Americans voted for Joe Biden. Simple

    3. @who’s on first That was a heartfelt comment. We’re all only human. Have yourself a good day .

    1. Roger Nixon Stone is under investigation by the D O J for not paying about 2 million in taxes. The Department of State needs to invalidate his passport before he flees to Russia.

  9. Pretty sure we’re gonna be seeing proud boys and oath keepers flipping on members of congress and senate.

    1. Throw out all those Rethug traitors and then lock them up! Don’t let them wiggle out of it with all their money!

  10. If they are saying that this oathkeeper is going to cooperate, then there should be many more Oath Keepers and other insurrectionist going to jail right behind him!
