Won’t the GOP Senate have to vote on whether those charges are constitutional?

Oh my

he believed nearly every case charged so far now includes “significant” felonies like civil disorder and obstruction of government proceedings.

Too bad they didn’t get a pardon.

I see a clustercuss in the making. Senate impeachment trial with scant evidence against Trump followed months later by tons of evidence of sedition by the expandable foot soldiers.

I hope they get some serious jail time.

It’s too bad the consequences take time… as a middle school teacher for many years, it was clear applying immediate consequences to actions has more impact.

If there is evidence that there were sympathizers inside the Capitol who were providing information, I hope that they are identified and are subject to full consequences as well.

Prosecutors have pursued information through more than 500 search warrants and grand jury subpoenas.

Don’t forget emails and texts from Marjorie Taylor Greene.

And Josh Hawlings.

Their staffs would love to sit for interviews.

All those who have been, or about to be, arrested have admitted they are antifa and were not sent there by Trump.
Is this correct?

Did You just reference FM?I’m amazed if you did because it’s been awhile. When I was still in the Toronto music scene they were friends of mine. Nash The Slash and I go way back. He passed some years ago.

Jacob Chansley, the shirtless guy with the horned headdress who invaded the Senate chamber and mocked what is left of our democracy, has been arrested on misdemeanor offenses. At the very least, he is guilty of disrupting a Senate session. If he were black, he would probably be charged with first-degree murder under the felony murder rule.

Hopefully, now that we’re past the low hanging fruit, we’ll start to see the baskets fill with deplorables.

You can’t try them when they’re no longer insurrectionists and have gone back to being private citizens.

But yes, some certainly deserved to be charged with felony murder.
