    1. @THE AMERICANS It won’t be over until everyone involved in the attempted insurrection is investigated, tried, and imprisoned. Were you there! You seem to sympathize with the traitors.

    2. @Xaviotes Harris well if the indictments are so voluminous, perhaps you could share a couple so that we would ALL know?

    3. @THE AMERICANS Fitting that you took your name from a famous show about Russian agents posing as Americans.

    1. @Joey LaMack the thing about trumpies is their delusional willful ignorance shell is impervious to truth and facts. You all only deserves ridicule and pity.

    2. @Robin Lewis I’m an independent voter from New York! Who also voted for Obama. I’m just not a brainwashed sheep Democrat like you.

  1. I’m so sad, to call myself an American with the lies being told to keep positions of power.. what a disgusting disgrace.

    1. @D.A. Oh you are the only 9ne misinformed, if not prove me wrong.
      You are also a race baiting bigot. How is anything I said white supremacy or in support of it?
      Just be a you dont like thr facts does not make it white supremacy. You are the exact example of what I’m talking about, I give you provable historical facts and because you don’t like it I’m a white supremacist. You are the racist and a bigot please stop your hateful speech it’s not acceptable, but is expected out of a historical racist political party.

    2. David Goldman, Is it political “showboating” to let the people know what really happened? What if it returns indictments, is it “showboating then, or does it become a ” witch hunt” ? GTFO.

    3. @Darth Tiznip How dramatic. The lady doth protest too much, methinks! Since you keep bringing up critical race theory, then I’ll assume you know what it is, in which case you’re actively racist in trying to prevent real history from finally being taught with an understanding that millions of black slaves were victimized and abused for the gain of white people. Nah — you’d prefer the white-washed version you grew up with, justifying it in your racist ways. Sorry that reality makes you uncomfortable. Life is hard.

    1. @Darth Tiznip The charging documents in some Oath Keepers cases detail the arms and insurrectionists staged in VA across the river.

    2. @Get ‘ n Thatlookuno th left is ignorant and willfully so, keep up the fight the truth is coming

    3. @Xaviotes Harris in VA not the capital see how they play with you, many people all 9ver the country had guns on jan 6th but non at the capital.

    4. @Darth Tiznip – there were guns, pipe bombs, and other incendiary devices brought to the US Capitol on that day you moron.
      FYI, “23 people have been charged with having deadly or dangerous weapons during the assault — including a loaded handgun found on a man arrested on Capitol grounds.” Not that actual facts mean anything to you idiots.
      It was an insurrection, and many of the participants were expecting help from the US Capitol police and republican members of Congress (which they did get), and no action from the DC National Guard. So a full on armed assault was not needed in their minds. Especially when you have the backing and the blessing of the POTUS.
      Also, an insurrection does not require firearms you moron. An insurrection is defined as “a violent uprising against an authority or government.” You don’t need firearms to be a violent mob, pitchforks and lit torches have been used for insurrections in the past.

    5. @H H no one has been charged with a fun at the capital the rest is true. You leftist are all the same you try to insult the opposition instead of providing proof, no one has been charged for the pipe bombs placed at both the RNC and DNC which is funny. No guns at the capital, instead of insults try using proof, bet you can’t find it. They told you a cop was killed and then had to retract but still Biden said it again two days ago, they can’t even keep their own story straight yet you continue to believe the Trumped up charged of insurrection, why. How is that insurrection but 15 months of political motivated riots and literal autonomous zones not?

  2. Clyde is a buffoon. The capital police should leave him unprotected…in a subtle way. Or if there is another attempted coux, push Clyde out to the people on “tour”

    1. @Patrick Ross a bunch of unarmed protestors being escorted through the building by police is not an insurrection

  3. Seems to me clyde, I saw video of you barricading the doors on Jan. 6th. Do you always do that for the tourists? Seems a bit rude.

    1. Your real concern should be it took them a few min to take and hold the most secure building in the world.

      You really want a round two?

    2. @Mary Anne Horn, Everyone, PLEASE CALL Andrew Clyde, GA Office on Capitol Hill, where he was PROTECTED BY CAPITOL POLICE DURING Jan 6, 2021 INSURRECTION…Rep. Clyde would NOT shake the hand of of Officer Michael Fanone, who was nearly MURDERED by a MOB of trump supporters…. this is DEPLORABLE. Please let his staff know that this is UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR for a Rep. who Took and OATH to PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION {FROM ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC…Like the INSURRECTIONISTS of Jan 6, 2021 WHO BREACHED THE CAPITOL, first time OUR Capitol was stormed, since The War of 1812….Rep. Andrew Clyde is getting paid by TAXPAYERS DOLLARS, yet REFUSES to RESPECT the CONSTITUTION and Captiol Police Officers . Here is Clyde’s number…I left a message with his receptionist 202 225-9893

    3. @filmolosophy The arrests for damage at BLM and the killing of a police officer by Boogaloo Boys, were committed by trump supporters masquerading as BLM Protesters. Google it troll.

    4. @S C hahahahaha talk about conspiracy theorists. So David Dorn? CHAZ security who killed multiple people? The “mostly peaceful” protests with buildings burning in every direction was ALL right wingers hey? hahah you are in a CULT. The things you people say are funnier than talking with Christians. At least they know their faith based arguments lie in the metaphysical.

    1. @Soren Ingram , Everyone, PLEASE CALL Andrew Clyde, GA Office on Capitol Hill, where he was PROTECTED BY CAPITOL POLICE DURING Jan 6, 2021 INSURRECTION…Rep. Clyde would NOT shake the hand of of Officer Michael Fanone, who was nearly MURDERED by a MOB of trump supporters…. this is DEPLORABLE. Please let his staff know that this is UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR for a Rep. who Took and OATH to PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION {FROM ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC…Like the INSURRECTIONISTS of Jan 6, 2021 WHO BREACHED THE CAPITOL, first time OUR Capitol was stormed, since The War of 1812….Rep. Andrew Clyde is getting paid by TAXPAYERS DOLLARS, yet REFUSES to RESPECT the CONSTITUTION and Captiol Police Officers . Here is Clyde’s number…I left a message with his receptionist 202 225-9893

    2. @Censored User Only, the Capitol Building was NOT OPEN TO TOURISTS that day, due to Covid protocols, as is clearly evidenced by the fact that the leading insurrectionists **bashed their way through the windows and doors**!! You saw it same as everyone else.

  4. Andrew Clyde clashes with reality. That’s because he’s been indoctrinated into the hall of shame.

    1. @sissy murphy His time will come thanks to the new laws making Police accountable and allowed to be sued. That’s just what the husband is doing.

    2. @Grand Wonder Have you seen the video of people inside the Capitol building in single file lines between ropes taking selfies? The propaganda machine is MSNBC and CNN calling it a insurrection! Lying when they’re telling you Antifa wasn’t there! James Earl Sullivan is only one of many that have been arrested there for antagonizing protesters and videoing it. Police let those people in and there are videos of Antifa breaking windows! In the beginning, the FBI said they had Intel of BOTH, left and right wing extremists groups being there. Then they retract that story and say Antifa was there. Just the other day they said Antifa doesn’t exist! So which is it? Were they not there or do they not exist?

  5. Clyde is a complete fool and quite a shameful man. I hope he enjoys how he’ll be remembered by history for his actions.

    1. But he won’t!!!!! he will be voted in again, and again, and again, no matter what he does, its unbelievable!

  6. They need to get it already: Trump, no matter what happens, whatever what investigation, court case is formed against him, is the chosen leader of the GOP. They will not drop him and they have their reasons. If it means, to devalue the effort and huge risk those police officers made to protect them, voting against awarding those officers a gold medal…America, y’all need to wake up already.

    1. Yep. That’s what he wants….sell your soul. I’m jus sad that so many have done sold out. Led down the primrose path…

    1. You had a miss spell in there let me fix it .
      The Terrorrist ARE COMING,LET´S BLOCK ALL THE DOORS – FAST!

    2. @Barnard Flapdoodle JUST who do you think them millionaire farmers gona get to pick their crops

  7. I’m so tired of MSNBC having this man on here and not asking him one question about his relationship with a Chinese spy named Fang Fang.

    MSNBC reporting is getting obviously ridiculous

    1. @Hugh McBoo Nah, traitor Trump doesn’t live in my head. He lives in your head. He orders you to help him steal an unelected 2nd term and thus end democracy in America. He says: praise Putin, screw the Blue, and obey your master when he orders you to deliver America to fascism. And you will try your darndest, because there’s nothing like serving a serial whoring-adulterer-bankrupter racist pathological liar. That’s exactly the kind of leader you want.

    2. @Joseph ozturk the topic was capital riots how tool gop congress man refused to acknowledge police officer pretty sure smallwell reaction was to that not sure what Chinese spy had to do with topic adressed in video

  8. “from within” the demise of every great empire. We are acting like that is not a thing, we are done.

    1. Looked like tourists to me, climbing the outside of the building and breaking windows and doors and knocking down the police and barriers, yep, just everyday tourists, lie Donald lie, enjoy prison

    2. @dwreal sorry to be the 1 to inform you but the “2 party” system consisting of Democrats and Republicans is nothing more than a sham to keep simpletons arguing with members the opposing party always blaming problems on the other party when the fact is they are the same when it comes to money. There is a 2 party system here in the USA, but it consists of the Haves and the Have Nots, guess which group you fall into.

    3. @dwreal amazing how trumpies try to blame democrats for what they themselves are doing. Who are you trying to convince?

    4. @dwreal How can you make that claim? You ovbiously do not know how government works. Who makes the laws? Are you aware that everything you see going wrong with this country has been put into place by republicans?

      The senate makes the laws, right? That is regardless of who is president. Out of the last forty years the senate has been republican for 36; feel free to look that up. In the four years that democrats have had it, they brought you the “crime bill of 1994” and the “ACA.” Everything else, every other pos legislation that you complain about has been put in place by republicans.

      They have even had the supreme court 5 to 4 or more in their favor for longer than that. Ask your representative why have they not overturned abortion since they have had the senate votes and the court (they are flat out liars leading idiots, that is why). Please do some research and call me out if I have lied.

      Democrats are not saints and I do not agree with many of their extremely liberal agendas but they at least lay their cards on the table instead of pretending to be the moral compass, life loving, religious people that republicans pretend to be but are actually the complete opposite.

  9. “It is better to be a wise man of strength and a man having discernment, than a man who has a large estate.” – Prov. 24:5 Trump has neither, discernment nor strength.
