  1. Talk to Nancy, Antifa, Capital Police, BLM and the FBI!! They planned and executed the attack!!! They committed Treason!!

  2. Quick question. You morons keep calling jan.6th an insurrection. Well if thats the case, why has no one been charged with insurrection? Could this just be your big scary word you use to spread your propaganda? People have figured you out. Your race hustling talking heads are helping republicans win elections. Keep up the good work.

  3. Trump and his side kicks are using a play book we are all familiar with. That play book is still the holy grail in Russia. Our country is being attacked by ruthless authoritarian traitors that think democracy is a joke.

  4. If the CIA didn't condone this action it wouldn't have happened! They are the head fascists, they are the shadow government! They run this country. So go ahead with your Kabuki theatrics.

  5. If you ever read about political dogma or political malware the theory behind it all is somewhat questionable BUT it does happen …it's a person in the role of being in charge or being in a position of authority tells a lie and people know it's a lie and dismiss it but as they hear that lie being pushed over and over they start to accept it as being true…it's crazy but you can see that it does happen if you look closer to when Trump started his election lie push..months before the election it was a constant push and look where it has gotten people..

  6. Fake News… Trump told them to arm themselves and nobody used a gun… REALLY. Must be the the most inept insurrection ever. 🤣

  7. Hitler trump Watched for 187 Minutes That's OVER 3 Hours, Did He Stop Watching Because Things Were NOT GOING His Way?

  8. Yes it is all in our face . Truth . Oh god please help America get back to kindness . We are sick of the corona and false narratives. We are a nation of Nobel prize winners.
    What is happening? Does Murdock own all channels ?

  9. Screw The Grifter 🖕
    Screw The Conman 🖕
    Lock ALL THE GUILTY CLAN UP ALREADY 🖕
    Quit SCREWING AROUND WITH THESE PEOPLE ALREADY 🖕😈

  10. Let's face it, many police and many military members are racist, advocates for white nationalism, authoritarian types and Trump supporters. Sadly, I suspect many of them around this country and abroad were at least secretly cheering on the rioters in private. And, they wanted no part of fighting against the same fascist white national idealist that organized the riots with help from Trump and insider cronies.

  11. There was a failure to act because Donald Trump was still President and he controlled the strings of power. He is ultimately to blame as well as his facilitators, inside and outside the government.

  12. You know it's funny how MSNBC and CNN left-wing Network love to cherry-pick about stuff they just cherry-pick everything for the narrative but you know what are the same individuals who actually stood quiet on the BLM Riots of last year old thing actually did encouraged it by the way Capitol Police were involved and the man was encouraging it to go to the Capitol and why has he not been charged with anything oh yeah speaking about charges being charged for anything I know it has been charged with anything during that since the January 6th

  13. Diper Don Drumpf was still Potus when this happened. The "I don't take any responsability" disgusting orange excuse for a human being IS responsible for the insurrection of January 6th. It is 100% on his shoulders and he must pay for it.

  14. A 'failure of intelligence' was there. The seditionists traitors attacking the capital had the failure of intelligence, as they were being traitors based on their belief of LIES, total BS lies, bs with absolutely zero real proof.

  15. GOP/Right Wing = White National Socialist Party. Why aren't Trump, Meadows, Eastman, Miller, Cruz, Hawley and Johnson in Guantanamo waiting sentencing along with the 9/11 terrorists? Aren't they terrorists? Didn't they engage in the violent overthrow of our government; a coup? Garland 😴💤 Biden 😴💤 Pelosi 😴💤

  16. Merrick Garland: "Trump and Congressional Republicans screwed me out of a seat on the Supreme Court…that's why now as AG I can't prosecute them for the many crimes they've committed!"

    Merrick Garland’s House Testimony Demonstrated the Failure of His Hyper-Cautious Approach to His Job

    Despite Garland’s many efforts to not appear political by declining to investigate Trump and his cronies for possible crimes and by using DOJ resources to actively protect Trump from civil liability, Republicans are still portraying him as the most political attorney general in history.

    The other weakness of Garland’s timid approach was on full view during his opening statement and responses to Democratic members of Congress. “The essence of the rule of law is that like cases are treated alike. That there not be one rule for Democrats and another for Republicans; one rule for friends, another for foes,” Garland stated grandly. But by declining to investigate Trump and his associates, Garland is enabling further attacks on our democracy. (While proving inequity by putting Republicans above the law.)

    Crucially, the two parties are not the same. Garland’s standard sets up a false equivalency between the Democratic Party and a political party whose national leader, Donald Trump, incited and celebrated a violent assault on our nation’s Capitol to overthrow the results of a free and fair election and who continues to portray the insurrection as a glorious “protest.” To that end, in the middle of the attorney general’s testimony, Trump issued a statement highlighting Garland’s feebleness at failing to even investigate the organizers and leaders of the Jan. 6 events, declaring “the insurrection took place on November 3, Election Day. January 6 was the Protest!”

    Garland’s efforts to depoliticize the DOJ have proved to be an abdication of his responsibility to protect the rule of law. Take just a few examples: Garland’s failure to reconsider the obstruction of justice case against the former president, his deferral of an investigation of possible financial crimes by Trump and his organization to local prosecutors in New York City and Westchester, his use of the DOJ to protect Trump from defamation allegations, and his deferral of a soliciting of voter fraud felony probe in Georgia to local prosecutors there. By abdicating his responsibility, Garland is also opening the door for Trump to commit these possibly criminal abuses all over again, this time with the full support of the Republican Party, and maybe ultimately return to power.

    –Mark Stern

    "Try as he may, Merrick Garland cannot perform boring independence fast enough to outrun GOP claims that he’s a wild-eyed, violent socialist. And while the GOP currently exists only to cast everything you thought you believed into doubt, the real endgame is vigilantism. The endgame is to ensure that people mistrust government, election systems, school boards, (teachers, health care officials) the media, and the justice system enough to lend a hand in their destruction."

    –Dahlia Lithwick

  17. Why hasn't Merrick Garland and his DOJ not yet arrested and charged Trump, Jeffery Clark, Mark Meadows, John Eastman and any other accomplices for their involvement in federal election interference and sedition??? WTF? How much more evidence is needed?

    18 U.S. Code § 595 – Interference by administrative employees of Federal, State, or Territorial Governments

    "Whoever, being a person employed in any administrative position by the United States, or by any department or agency thereof, or by the District of Columbia or any agency or instrumentality thereof, or by any State, Territory, or Possession of the United States, or any political subdivision, municipality, or agency thereof, or agency of such political subdivision or municipality (including any corporation owned or controlled by any State, Territory, or Possession of the United States or by any such political subdivision, municipality, or agency), in connection with any activity which is financed in whole or in part by loans or grants made by the United States, or any department or agency thereof, uses his official authority for the purpose of interfering with, or affecting, the nomination or the election of any candidate for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both."

    Disqualification form Holding Office, U.S. Constitution, 14th Amendment, Section 3.1.1

    "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

  18. Insane stuff from an insane man, that describes Traitor Trump to a "T." What it constitutes is an attempted coup and an insurrection. So, why hasn't Trump and his accomplices been arrested for those and all his other crimes, yet? Why is Merrick Garland and his DOJ failing to do their duty? If Trump is not prosecuted, it sets a terrible precedent enabling the next wannabe authoritarian President. This is no time for playing nice.

    Expect these documents from the National Security Archives to produce even more incriminating evidence of Traitor Trump's autogolpe. Also expect the House Select Committee to pass them on to the DOJ, along with a referral for criminal charges against Trump and his accomplices. Merrick Garland MUST prosecute Trump for his many crimes, or our justice system and democracy will be destroyed.

  19. "What happened on January 6 is the very definition of sedition." ~ Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson

    Why has Traitor Trump not been charged yet by the DOJ? That's what a lot of people are wondering! Not just prosecution of Trump, but all his accomplices, too! Obstruction charges outlined in the Mueller Report, the Ukraine extortion racket, inciting an insurrection, sedition, and federal election interference. The evidence is all in plain sight, where are the indictments, the arrests? Our democracy hangs in the balance; this is no time to play nice, there is no time to waste! The DOJ shouldn't be worried about appearances, either, because it's a matter of impartially enforcing the law and not setting bad precedent that encourages future lawlessness and authoritarianism by the Executive Branch. And because justice matters.

  20. Time goes by, we are still waiting for the insurrectionist senators and their deity Trump to be arrested. It seems that this job was too big for Mr. Garland to handle. President Biden chose a friend for the position instead of a qualified person for the job. Jan. 6 was a rehearsal, the Republicans are putting all the chess pieces in the right place. The next time, they will have a successful insurrection.

  21. And still we don’t know why requests for more security was denied. Who is investigating that? Who made that decision?

  22. Lmao fbi monitoring people intelligence agencies monitoring people but dc didn't prepare sounds like mutual combat.

  23. The point is, they were white, if they had been black, y’all would still be scraping blood off the capital stairs, now tell the world the United States, is not a racist country 🤣🤣

  24. The "insurrection" has been downgrade to a riot, even though it was much less riotous than the BLM/Antifa "peaceful protests"….. Msnbc is crazy,lol!

  25. Red Flags…heck, I'm no genius, but I said before Jan 6th that there would be trouble. I didn't even watch TV when the event was going on (I'd seen enough of Trump and his lies), and tuned in later saying to myself, "Well, let's see if those Trumpers took over the country yet," only half joking. So when I saw the violence and all the MAGA Trumpers in the Capitol, it didn't surprise me at all.

  26. When the terrorist in chief is in the White House, how can you expect a proper response from the government against a domestic terrorist attack?
