  1. It’s really hard to Gaslight in today’s world with all the videotape and technology that we have today.

    1. Not to worry, they’re probably already working on new lies about how this footage was faked.

    2. They’re only gaslighting the people who live inside the right-wing media bubble. They think the rest of us don’t matter anymore.

      “What you’re seeing isn’t real.” -Trump

  2. isnt there a rule against having compromised threats and liabilities to national security in office? they should have their clearances revoked.

    1. @Robert Emery I have to disagree. When you have serving Officers actually getting involved in trying to spread Putin disinformation about the President, it’s a very big burger of feces.

    2. @Luna Ellingson none of them are serving. All retired or discharged. All supporters of the big lie. A bunch of former embedded fascists who were rooting for the overthrow of democracy is what it sounds like.

    1. You’ve got to wonder if they would have gained entrance to the Capitol though. I’m betting no.

    2. How True! How can AMERICA allowed this! This is a DANGER! And people will believe them! They should be brought up on charges!

    1. @William M no there are a few left still .mitt Romney. Kinzinger, liz, and a handful of others but they know their days are numbered that polluted bunch of cretins sucking up to Trump for morsels of attention and compliments or backhanded payments perhaps who knows .
      Its incredible so many were at the starting blocks to swear allegiance to the man who has destroyed their party ,destroyed integrity of republican politics, destroyed the future for Conservative minded voters .He has robbed the American people he has tainted, poisoned its best and now they regurgitate the putrid crap he force feeds them .

    2. These lies are bordering on treason when they come from someone who has taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution — may even cross that line.

    3. That fool say it that wasn’t violet that was peaceful don’t get that fool no gun and you should arrest him and that’s a good way do you know who needs a gun just listen to him I’m just saying

  3. Everyone who took part in this insurrection and the people who continue to lie about it should be dealt a swift blow in the courts and in the polling stations.

    1. @HEΛRTS OF SPΛCE trump”i love uneducated people”. Then proceeds to bleed these poor folks of every cent they have. What a great man! I’d be proud to say I voted for that evil pos, too.

    2. @TheDiamond2009 unfortunately, that is not the true purpose of these voting bills. That is if course, played down. The true purpose is so republicans can change any election results where they don’t win. That is the hidden agenda. Democracy at its finest.

    3. @TheDiamond2009 You keep saying the integrity of our election system is questionable, but it’s not. That’s the lie Trump has been telling well before the election even took place. That is why others keep calling your argument a strawman, because that’s exactly what it is. Based on your comments, you appear to have no idea how voting works in the US.

      Seriously, the only reason January 6th happened is because Trump has been non-stop lying about the election results. That is why many people (rightfully) hold him accountable. It doesn’t matter if he called for violence or peace, he started the entire conspiracy himself.

      By the way, the election fraud claims suddenly disappear in regions where Republicans won. Have you noticed that detail? Again, there is no large scale voting fraud going on, just a bunch of sore losers who don’t have a clue how elections and vote tallying works. Vote by mail has been a thing for a very long time, and this year was no different, except for the fact that DJT’s been gaslighting and brainwashing his base since 2016. He has literally been lying to his base for years, and as a European observing our affairs, you should be able to clearly see it.

    4. @TheDiamond2009 *”…I don’t know anybody who is racist.”*

      Well there you go, people, racism doesn’t exist because Mr. Diamond doesn’t know any racists.

    5. Boy, Mika looks so angry about the insurrectionists. Maybe a few good insertederectionists would cheer her up.

  4. I’d wager probably something like a billion people around the world saw footage of 1/6. And they are still trying to gaslight us? Water is dry. Up is down. Grass is blue. Welcome to the republican party!

    1. Sadly while China, Russia, and Korea, among other communist countries, saw the insurrection as a weakening of the USA. They already knew Trump could be bought and Jan 6 gave them the thumbs up. Now the GOP is proof to the world that we are vulnerable to any kind of attacks.

    2. Forgive me for taking liberty with your post
      Water is dry. Up is down. Grass is blue. Welcome to the republican party of Q!

    3. Not from the US, thank god, but we all saw what happened. These GQP clowns are liars and insulting liars at that, their lies made so ridiculous.

  5. Thank you, wonder if these Republicans would say these exact same phrases under oath as well. Never give up folks!

    1. Everything should be under oath with these people there has to be consequences, we peons face consequences everyday but these people do not.

    2. @Kimberly Winters they proved they don’t care about their oaths when they whitewashed Jan 6th

    3. I believe they would do anything to keep power! Beware of the things happening around us!!!

    1. @MrSnicker14 dude mostly peaceful protest? What channel are you watching because the attempted coup that I saw took out one police officer’s eye and yes sicnick died of a stroke but had I been in his shoes I might have had a stroke as well. That was no peaceful protest that was a bunch of thugs trying to overthrow our government and hand it to the dear leader who wanted to be president for life like his buddy Putin. Seriously grow up some and do some research and have your own thoughts instead of just regurgitating that same garbage. Or at the very least open your eyes

    2. @Teri Reed The irony of your post is incredible. The media lied for months and claimed Sicnick died from being hit in the head. They knew it was a lie but they pushed it anyway. Funny how all of a sudden democrats care about the police. How many were injured by BLM? How many have been killed?

    3. @Teri Reed I despise all corporate media, fox included. MSNBC and CNN are the worst though. They have been caught pushing fake news thousands of times. Remember when MSNBC fired Ashleigh Banfield for speaking against going to war with Iraq? Very progressive of them.

  6. They tried to take his gun. One took his badge as a trophy.byou can hear one traitor yell “I got one!”

  7. How on earth are these people allowed back? Anyone who lies about this day should loose their seat, no question asked! To love a man more than their country

    1. America hasn’t changed much since the civil war.
      A carefree and empathy deprived population leads to a corrupt government.
      Ignorance is more valued than love.

  8. When you are in a cult, you are conditioned to believe that everyone else are the liars.
    Even blatant and physical proof of the truth is not enough to sway your thinking.
    these people are delusional

    1. There are only 2 instances where their statements could make any sense:
      1) They are truly insane.
      2) They are Confederate Senators/Representatives encouraging their countrymen to be “patriotic” against America.

      Sheeesh. Why has it become too much to expect, that at the very minimum, our elected official not participate in an insurrection.

    2. History has shown that people who have been indoctrinated will completely reject anything other than they have been brainwashed with. An example is the Hitler Youth, they spent their formative years being taught Jews were evil and that anyone that was different to them was beneath them and were to be despised. The difference now is that MAGAts are flooded 24×7 with Trump’s lies and propaganda and has been indoctrinated so much faster, not to mention these people have an inclination to conspiracy theories.

  9. They should be censured by ethics committee and removed from committee. I watched the hearing and nearly threw up. Christopher Miller was lying throughout.

    1. @Freewheelin’ Franklin True. I guess they’re just far more comfortable with it now.

      Comfortable is an understatement. They wear their hypocrisy on their sleeve like it was something to be proud of.

    3. Wow that video almost made me throw up. That guy had not come up and helped him he would be dead right now. But hey what do you expect of tourist taking pictures right. I hope that they get a narrow scoped commission and shed light on every one of these liars that have propagated this lie and the ones who helped with the insurrection. Every one of them should be in prison. In my opinion they’re even worse than the folks who actually broke into the capital. I’m not trying to make excuses for those guys but these congressmen and senators that helped invite that garbage in need stricter sentences in my opinion.

    4. Their stock in trade. About all they do well. Republicans aren’t the only paying their wages. They should all be impeached for treason, because u no they were all involved, or they wouldn’t be lying now.

  10. If one of these GOP criminals and corrupt liars were my father, I would die of shame. I probably would never call such a person “pa” again. This is a disgrace and a real abomination to all who paid with their lives that day, and it is a mockery of the people of the United States. It’s inexcusable.

    1. @daniel harris… obviously, VERY stupid!!! Unfathomable!!!! AND, if they, by chance, believe what they are saying, then America has a much greater problem than anyone thought!

      This really puts The U.S. at a pivotal point in its history.

    2. Ray you are absolutely right. They are all lieing and they should be held accountable for their lies.

    1. Wait, million brown Canadian 100 dollar bills is like a thousand dollars American. Lol Na, I’d donate my knee and my girthy mass for free to off a bunch of new aged Nazis. Lol Girthy mass, what’s in this stuff?

    2. @Saul Teanuts come on back Saul, WE DESPERATELY NEED YOU! Please bring a bunch of rough& ready Canadian lumberjacks and hockey goons to help us with our little neo-Nazi Christian-fascist MAGAT infestation

  11. Here’s what the Joint Chiefs said Jan. 12th – “We witnessed actions inside the Capitol building that were inconsistent with the rule of law,” they wrote. “The rights of freedom of speech and assembly do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition, and insurrection.” THEY did not see tourists.

    1. The should be held accountable and forced to resign. They are working against the best interests of the country.

  12. Are these GOP reps for real? How stupid do they think we are? I have to believe that there is some sort of punishment for blatantly lying during these hearings We need to dessimate the GOP by voting all their incumbents out of office in 2022. This is not acceptable!! People loss their lives that day.

    1. I totally agree with you but Rember, the Big Lie from our so called leader is what started this crap in the 1st place. LYING OVER AND OVER AGAIN ON NATIONAL TELEVISION. And he’s still telling that LIE Every Chance he gets

    2. @Theresa Lennon there’s was a group of people dedicated to counting trumps lie during the time when he was in office and they couldn’t keep track of it on time… anyways it ended up being “Trump’s false or misleading claims total 30,573 over 4 years”

    3. @DAVID LEAMAN The GOP reps view everyone the way they view their supporters. They believe everyone is as dumb as they are.

    4. Let’s vote them ALL OUT IN 2022. ALL of us in the states where these radical rhinos are from, VOTE THEM OUT, NOW!!! Then there will be no more trump cult
