  • Let there be no misunderstanding: TODAY (among others) is why there is a January 6th committee

    Trump was just too damn successful! There has just been TOO MUCH WINNING! And they can't have that! The Bushes, Dole, McCain and Romney could not have accomplished a quarter of what Trump accomplished in just four short years. They and their ilk have been shown to be total pantywaist incompetents. The comparisons could not be more stark.
  • Day Before J6 Committee Hearing, FBI Agents Stage Pre-Dawn Raid on Home of Trump DOJ Official Jeffrey Clark–Forced into Street in His Pajamas

    Former Trump Department of Justice official Jeffrey Clark had his Virginia home raided by FBI agents early Wednesday morning where agents would not let him get dressed, instead forcing him out in the street in his pajamas while they ransacked his home. Clark, who was the former acting head of the Civil Division in 2020 and was considered by Trump to replace William Barr as Attorney General, is being investigated by the January 6 Committee and now the Justice Department for his role in President Trump’s legal efforts to stop the steal of the 2020 presidential election. Clark was the...

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi shoulders much of the blame for the security breakdown at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, a preliminary report from Republican investigators Reps. Jim Banks and Rodney Davis determined. The Capitol Police (USCP) were half-staffed on Jan. 6, Pelosi’s House Sergeant at Arms denied multiple requests for National Guard assistance from the Pentagon and the USCP Chief in the days leading up to Jan. 6, officers were poorly equipped and had insufficient riot shields and helmets, and they were never trained to handle a riot even after the riots of 2020, the investigation...

  • New Metro DC Police Report Confirms Plainclothes “Electronic Surveillance Unit” Operatives Were Embedded in the Crowd on Jan. 6 to Record Protesters – Used Rainbow Color Wristbands to Identify Each Other

    A new police report that was exclusively obtained by The Epoch Times has proved that “plainclothes” members of a special law enforcement Electronic Surveillance Unit (ESU) were secretly embedded among protesters for the purposes of conducting video surveillance on January 6th. The newly uncovered report, titled First Amendment Demonstrations, was issued on Jan. 3, 2021, by DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Chief of Police Robert Contee under the Homeland Security Bureau’s Special Operations Division. It detailed the MPD’s response to the planned MAGA protest, which included specifics about covert operations that occurred on and leading up to January 6th. According...
  • January 6 Committee Decries Protests at Election Officials’ Homes; Silent on Protests at SCOTUS Justices’ Homes

    bretibart ^ | 21 Jun 2022 | JOEL B. POLLAK
    The January 6 Committee opened its fourth public hearing Tuesday with complaints about protests at the homes of election officials across the country, while saying nothing about protests at the homes of Supreme Court justices. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) condemned then-President Donald Trump for not condemning the 2020 protests, without noting the fact that the Biden White House has specifically encouraged protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices, against existing federal law. Moreover, Biden has never personally condemned the attempt assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. A White House official tried to claim otherwise, but Biden’s condemnation came...

    The Jan. 6 hearings attracted 20 million live viewers on opening night, 11 million for the next session and nearly 9 million for Thursday's third installment. Those yardsticks don't begin to measure the true reach of what is said there. Memorable moments are sliced for quick consumption on countless news programs, comedy shows and online. It's the first congressional hearing in memory that seems specifically designed with modern media needs, said Jeff Jarvis, City University of New York journalism professor. There are already breakout moments. GIULIANI AND ALCOHOL Liz Cheney says Rudy Giuliani had too much to drink before advising...

    VIDEO Democrat pollster Fernand Amandi used to maintain a thin veneer of sanity back when he was a radio host on South Florida radio station WIOD in 2016. At the time he smugly mocked any callers who dared to suggest that Donald Trump had even a slight chance of winning the presidential election that year. Well, we all know what happened and after the election it was Amandi himself who was subjected to a barrage of well-deserved mockery from the callers. After a few months of this, he pretty much went off the deep end into Full Mental Jacket territory...

    t is widely seen that the U.S. House Select Committee about January 6 is falling flat. See, e.g., Breitbart's article, "January 6 Committee's Third Hearing So Boring NBC Cut to Golf Instead." (For golf to be more interesting, it's bad.) What's more amazing is that no clue has penetrated the fog of Democrats, establishment Republicans, the news media, or far-left activists about why. Our political class is so out of touch that it could not see this collective yawn coming. And no, this is not about interviewing that one magic witness. It is the fundamental concept of their entire effort...

    Rep Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said on Sunday that former Vice President Mike Pence was a hero on Jan 6, 2021, for resisting pressure to overturn the 2020 election from former President Trump and his allies. During an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” moderator Chuck Todd asked Raskin, a member of the select House panel investigating Jan. 6, if he considers Pence a hero for defying Trump’s orders. “Well, you know, in a time of absolutely scandalous betrayal of people’s oaths of office and crimes being committed all over the place, somebody who does their job and sticks to the...

During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” moderator George Stephanopoulos asked Kinzinger, a member of the House select committee investigating the riot, if Trump should be prosecuted.

    Former President Donald Trump on Friday offered his first public comments since the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol began to reveal the extent of his attempts to remain in power. The committee has presented harrowing video footage and searing testimony, including accounts from Trump's close associates and members of his family. Trump called the hours of testimony — in over three days of hearings so far — "a complete and total lie." He spent much of his speech blasting the committee's efforts as politically motivated, and insisting he'd done nothing wrong.

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), a vocal critic of former President Trump, said that some churches have changed from institutions that worshiped God to institutions that worshipped Trump. Kinzinger, who is one of only two Republicans sitting on the House select committee investigating the events of Jan. 6, 2021, tweeted a video clip of remarks that he made at a conference in April on Friday, stating that the U.S. is in a “leadership crisis.”

    In its attempt to blame former President Donald Trump for the crimes committed on January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol, House Democrats have spent the week focused on Trump’s unsupported claims of widespread election fraud. The Jan. 6 select committee and the legacy media outlets promoting the show trial completely ignore, however, the verifiable evidence of systemic violations of election law, illegal voting, and the constitutionally deficient execution of the November 2020 election—including issues Trump challenged following the election. Georgia provides a peach of an example. President Biden won Georgia and the state’s 16 electoral votes by a margin...

    A document, titled “1776 Returns,” which federal prosecutors said was used by the leader of the Proud Boys, lays out a plan to occupy Capitol buildings on Jan. 6, 2021, using covert operators to let "patriots" inside government offices in an apparent effort to force a new election. Enrique Tarrio, the former leader of the Proud Boys, and four other members were indicted on seditious conspiracy charges this month. Tarrio has twice been ordered detained until trial. The nine-page document, filed in federal court Wednesday, lays out a plan to fill buildings “with patriots and communicate our demands." Its stated...

    Capitol Police received alerts from both U.S. Homeland Security and District of Columbia authorities about potential violence at the Capitol more than two weeks before the Jan. 6 riots, a pre-Christmas warning that flagged online chatter about waging a “bloody war,” concealing guns, and burning down the Supreme Court, according to internal memos obtained by Just the News that reveal much earlier and persistent red flags about the tragedy.
