Oh yes, there WILL be a reckoning.

Why doesn’t Joe Biden open a presidential commission? He refuses to do so.

-6 ( +0 / -6 )

when has THAT ever been a concern of Democrats when deciding to investigate something?

oh we can’t do this, conservatives will say it’s illegitimate. Come on, man. Build back better.

If Biden created a presidential commission to investigate the insurrection, “conservatives” would be screaming it isn’t legitimate

Some people just need to lie and deflect.

The fact of the matter is that McCarthy sent a rep to negotiate a bi-partisan commission. His rep negotiated in good faith and reached an agreement in accordance with his instructions.

Lil Mike never thought he wells get an agreement and panicked. He went to uncle Mitch hot help and (a certain city in Russia) Mitch, in a nakedly brazen move lobbied his GOQ colleagues “for a personal favor.”

So now we will do it the hard way. GOQ whiners should remember, it didn’t have to be this way. This is the future you chose.

Probably because Nancy Pelosi already set up a commission.

He refuses to do so.

What are you insinuating here? Was January 6th caused by a bunch of Biden backers?

The framing of this story is scarily innacurate. Five people did NOT die in the violence. Only one- an unarmed protester. NO Capitol police were killed. The use of pseudo-military and pseudo-Nazi language (assault, stormed) is totally unnecessary.

Enough of the hype. The Democrats are desperately trying to drag this on as long as possible and keep it as an issue in the 2022 midterm elections. The court cases are already proceeding, the guilty are being punished. There is no need for any more breathless hyperbole.

Meanwhile, blue-checked DA's are choosing not to prosecute HUNDREDS of criminal rioters and arsonists responsible for last summer's mayhem.

Pelosi said it would have been preferable to have an outside commission and said she has not given up on that idea, according to the article.

If there were a Presidential, non partisan committee we could actually find out. Instead its going to be a bunch of Democrats grandstanding for TV and liberal media, again.

Not searching for the truth, but just trying to inflict as much political damage as they can.

Right, several members of the capital police force just coincidentally died of stroke/heart attack around the same time of the attack.

Only one- an unarmed protester.

lmao "protesters" don't break into government capitol buildings and attempt to storm the house chambers, where the congress is assembled. That isn't protesting.

The use of pseudo-military and pseudo-Nazi language (assault, stormed) is totally unnecessary.

It is completely appropriate and necessary. Ashli Babbit would still be alive if and her cohort of Trump supporters didn't storm the capitol.

lol And then you'd claim it isn't non partisan because Biden appointed the committee.

 Instead its going to be a bunch of Democrats grandstanding for TV and liberal media, again.

Not searching for the truth, but just trying to inflict as much political damage as they can.

lol We could have had a bipartisan commission, but Republicans refused to allow it.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

then that simply means Biden can make one, if he wants.

Override those Republicans, all they do is prevent Joe from getting anything done, right?

Joe can do it himself in this case. why wont he?

lol We could have had a bipartisan commission, but Republicans refused to allow it.

Lol You totally missed my point there, Black. Let's set aside your blind hatred of president Biden for a second; If Republicans care so much about finding out the truth, why did they refuse to allow a bipartisan congressional commission?

 why wont he?

Now let's talk about Biden. Why do you think Biden hasn't set up a commission? You've made this accusation twice now, surely there is a reason to.

Five people died: one was shot by Capitol Police, one died of a drug overdose, and three succumbed to natural causes. Your issue appears to be with the medical examiner not supporting what you wanted it to be.

Right, several members of the capital police force just coincidentally died of stroke/heart attack around the same time of the attack.

Why are republicans afraid of an independent investigation?

They’re not afraid? They just been through this 3 times and now the Dems want to go through this crap again? To deflect from the the FBI’s own suspicious possible involvement in this?

It can’t be because it was their supporters who committed this act of treason, can it?

No, because if that WERE the case then they would have been charged with that and they weren’t, so that hypothesis is actually incorrect.

Indiana grandmother of five is first sentenced in Capitol riot

Anna Morgan-Lloyd plead guilty to one misdemeanor charge in exchange for three years of probation.

She pled guilty to "parading".

Indiana grandmother of five is first sentenced in Capitol riot

Great, only 499 more to go!

She pled guilty to "parading".

She pled guilty to "parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building." You left that little detail out.

Yeah, we can't have those nasty parading grandmothers anywhere near the Capitol! They might hold a bake sale or something equally lawless...

Nearly half a year to accept a plea deal on a misdemeanour doesn't really make the Justice Department look good.

Great, only 499 more to go!

yeah 499 more hardened, treason, armed insurrectionists? or nah?

Well 498 cause one is that Antifa/BLM guy that sold the video to CNN after inciting violence.

"parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building."

Grandma is hardcore, huh? wow, thats not what I was promised. I was promised jail time for armed insurrection.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

the Kavanaugh protesters did the same thing in a government building. parading, demonstrating, picketing, screaming, banging on doors, threatening people in elevators.

But liberals say the difference is that the building was "open" at the time and that the Capitol was "closed". which is why they wont release the video showing police inviting people inside, cause that would mean the Capitol was "open" too.

Well Grandma on probation for (on her part) a peaceful parade, demonstration and picketing isnt the start to what was expected. We were told armed insurrection. treason and sedition.

Great, only 499 more to go!

Some 500 people have now been arrested in the sweeping federal investigation into the violence, the Justice Department said on Thursday.

And 499 claim in their defense that they were duped by Trump and brainwashed by the far right media...."Foxitis" and "Foxmania".....

The other one defendant blamed his mother...

I support the investigation. Biden doesn't need to do it. He's sticking to his plan of staying away from things Trump related, which is good. Congress can handle it.

The sentences are starting to get handed out, looks like probation for the very low level offenders and jail time for more serious ones. Its good to keep watch on radical Trump fans and put the more dangerous ones in prison with all the benefits of a criminal record after.

the benefits of a criminal record after.

Except that Democrats are trying to pass legislation to erase criminal records. They kinda inconvenience people or something when they have them.

It's hilarious here watching our Trump-supporting friends flip and flop each day....

Yesterday the MAGA-mob on Jan 6th were all pro-Trump patriots standing up to a "stolen" election...

The next day they call them Antifa and BLM infiltrators organized by the FBI....

They have to watch Hannity, Carlson, and Ingraham each night to know what to say the next day...

I imagine most have to worry more about whiplash than COVID...
