Leffingwell was among a group of people inside the Capitol...

    More than 6,000 National Guard members from D.C. and elsewhere were mobilized, and a 7-foot tall fence was erected around the U.S. Capitol in response to Wednesday’s unrest, which D.C.

Superior Court, relating to unlawful entry and weapons charges. Some of those cases are from earlier in the week, Sherwin said. In addition, his office is filing...

    A New Mexico elected official — who co-founded the group Cowboys for Trump — was arrested by the FBI on Sunday in connection to his alleged role in the Capitol riot. Couy Griffin, an Otero County commissioner, was busted after filming himself on the steps of the Capitol the day a mob of Trump supporters attacked the legislative building, federal authorities told KVIA-TV. At a commissioners meeting on Thursday, Griffin vowed to return to Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day, armed with guns to “embrace” the Second Amendment, the outlet separately reported. Griffin had called the Capitol siege, “a great day...

    It’s almost like the mainstream media want to raise the temperature and stoke unsubstantiated fear. Actually, I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what they want to do. That was made apparent again today after a lie was trumpeted by several major media outlets before being shown to be mostly false.I’m talking about the story that a man provided “fake” inauguration credentials while carrying 500 rounds of handgun ammunition on his person in an attempt to enter the Capitol area. This was supposed to be proof of an elevated threat, with the assumption being that this guy was there to shoot the...

    When the Capitol riots happened on Jan. 6, the blame of President Trump was all over. Supposedly, he was the instigator. Supposedly, he'd egged the rioters on. The tape of his urging his supporters to stay strong and fight was Exhibit A in the press, and with no skepticism whatsoever, House speaker Nancy Pelosi declared Trump guilty and rushed a crazily hasty second impeachment just days before Trump's exit. She declared that it was all about holding Trump "accountable," and she added that her explicit aim at the uselessly late date was to prevent him from ever running from public...

    John Sullivan, a noted leftist leader from Utah, stormed the US Capitol with fellow activists on Wednesday. The mainstream media and the fact-checkers tried to protect him and claimed that he was there only to film the whole situation. Even far-left PolitiFact reviewed Sullivan’s video of the mob into the Capitol and Babbitt’s shooting. They say that it doesn’t show Sullivan clearly engaged in the violence or leading the run-up to the Capitol, although it does show him animated as he spoke with police and rioters from the frontlines. At points in the video, Sullivan can be heard telling others...
