  1. Insurrection timeline leading up to January 6:
    September 23, 2020: In response to a direct question, Trump refuses to say he will ensure a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election.

     “Well,we’re going to have to see what happens.” He further raises alarms about a potential transition of power: “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful — there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.” 

    September 29, 2020: First Presidential Debate.
    when asked to condemn white suprema.cist mili.tias like the Proud Boys, Trump tells them to “Stand back and stand by,”

    November 13, 2020:
    In the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election, Trump’s allies spearhead a media campaign and a call to action of Trump supporters.

    “This is as serious a constitutional crisis as our nation has ever faced. We will only be the beacon of hope for the world if we are willing to stand with courage and integrity & defend our republic,” Mike Flynn tweets.
    Sidney Powell echos the statements, saying in an interview that “This is essentially a new American revolution. And anyone who wants this country to remain free needs to step up right now.” 

    December 2, 2020: Viol.ent rhetoric by Trump’s allies continues as the Georgia Senate runoff race nears. 

    “We’re going to sla.y Goliath, the comm.unists, the liberals, the phonies. Joe Biden will never set foot in the Oval Office of this country. It will not happen on our watch. Never gonna happen,” Lin Wood claims at the Stop the Steal Rally in Alpharetta, Georgia.

    December 8, 2020: The official Twitter account of the Arizona GOP asks supporters whether they are willing to “d.l.e” for Trump.

    In response to a Stop the Steal tweet saying “I am willing to give my life for this fight,” the Arizona GOP tweets, “He is. Are you?” The GOP account also tweets a clip of the 2008 movie “Rambo,” as the character proclaims, “This is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or d.l.e for something.” 

    19 December 2020 – Be there, will be wild:
    At 1.42am in the early hours of 19 December Trump tweeted the lie that it was “statistically impossible” for him to have lost the presidential election. He gave his first notice of a “big protest in DC” on 6 January. “Be there, will be wild!” he said.

    19 December – The cavalry is coming:
    Within hours, fervent Trump supporters began to heed Trump’s rallying cry. Kylie Jane Kremer, founder of a Stop the Steal group banned by FB, picked up the notice about the march and ran with it. “The calvary is coming, Mr President!” she said.

    Trump retweeted Kremer’s post, saying: “A great honor!”

    1 January 2021 – You got to go to the streets and be vio.lent:
    Louie Gohmert responded in inflammatory terms to news that his federal lawsuit seeking to force Mike Pence to block certification of Biden’s victory had been dismissed.

    “The bottom line is, the court is saying, ‘We’re not going to touch this. You have no remedy’,” he told News.max. “Basically, in effect, the ruling would be that you got to go to the streets and be as vio.lent as An.tifa.”

    3 January– We will not go quietly into the night:
    Ted Cruz addressed a rally in Georgia. “We will not go quietly into the night. We will defend liberty. And we are going to win.”

    6 January – We’re coming for you:
    Don Jr, appeared as the warm-up carney act at the “Save America Rally” on the National Mall. He threatened the Republicans who, as he spoke, were preparing to vote on certifying the election result.

    “The people who did nothing to stop the steal. This gathering should send a message to them: This isn’t their Republican party any more. This is Donald Trump’s.”
    Then Don jr. said: “If you’re gonna be the zero and not the hero, we’re coming for you and we’re going to have a good time doing it!”

    6 January – Trial by combat:
    Rudy Giuliani, who has been a leading proponent of the falsehood that the election was fraudulently rigged, addressed the rally.

    “If we’re wrong, we will be made fo.ols of,” he said. “But if we’re right, a lot of them will go to jail. So let’s have trial by combat!!!!”

    6 January – We will not take it any more:
    Trump then addressed the crowd just outside the White House for more than an hour, urging them to march on the Capitol building. “We will not take it any more,” he said.

    “You’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong … I know everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building.”
    The crowd followed his instructions and began marching on the Capitol.

    A USA Today analysis discovered that After Trump used the word “MARCH” one Parlor user wrote: “Time to fight. The civil war is upon us.” And another Parlor user said: “We are going to have a civil war. Get ready!!”

    The analysis by USA Today also found that the use of the phrase “civil war” increased nearly four times during Trump’s speech, as it was used on 156 separate occasions while he spoke.

  2. Trace it all back to who gave help to these people,peel the onion until you arrive at trump and his cronies

    I’m betting the insurrection was funded and carefully coordinated by the Trump White House.

    • @Sail Broker it wasn’t President Biden that suggested ingesting disinfectant and injecting ultraviolet rays genius, it was the treasonous pathologically lying ignorant draft dodging tax evading sexually assaultive alt-right bigot. FYI cupcake, traitor Trump’s immunity from prosecution expired January 20th.

      I was thrown out of an antique shop because I walked in and said, “Good afternoon, what’s new?” @Roy Batty

    • I’ve seen this same comment like 30 times 🤡

  5. Call your representatives and ask them these questions.

  6. Carina Ekström | February 25, 2021 at 3:53 AM | Reply

    We need the answers to all those questions, don’t ever let them go.

  7. Yeah and who took out the panic buttons?

  8. Alfred Stiffcock | February 25, 2021 at 4:06 AM | Reply

    The U.S government’s trying to sweep the riot under the rug. Fox News and republicans want it to go away.

    *The questions raised by Rachel Maddow shows that Russia doesn’t need any active measures ops in US, Americans themselves are tearing up their own country.*

  10. Michael Hernandez | February 25, 2021 at 4:32 AM | Reply

    It seems like they’re trying to change what happened for history to know.

    • Today’s republican party are racist insurrectionists who are so detached from reality that they live with conspiracy theories and alternative facts.

  11. Every time a member of house or senate tells a lie… Live tasering…

  12. Keep talking about it… Because they trying sweep it under the rug

  13. Rachel Maddow : I am MaDe of questions right now.

    Everyone Else : Ditto

  14. When will the people be arrested that erected a Gallow and Noose at our Capital??
    I hope the reason why we haven’t heard more about Brian Sickneck is that they (fbi) is still investigating.

  15. Trump caused this and they are thinking of letting him continue with the Republicans’s party. Shame

  16. Why didn’t Capitol and FBI meet face to face? Such incompetence still, after 911.???

  17. who brought the lumber to make the thing to hang pence

  18. These are the things inquiring minds would like to know

  19. So considering almost every single one has said trump directed them, why is trump still a free man. Why have we not arrested the Republicans who refused to do their job and serve justice for once.

  20. Questions like “Was this a Coup attempt? Did they attend a Trump rally immediately prior to attacking my government handover of power? And finally, why didn’t they shoot them upon entering the building?
