So… question to the group. I was under the impression that the assholes overran the Capitol, then were driven out, along with any firearms they had. Most, if not all of the arrests came later after they were already gone, and they were identified through social media, etc. That’s why no guns were confiscated. We already know they turned off the metal detectors so there were definitely guns.

And yet, another Trump backed candidate had a victory yesterday. Mary Miller defeated Rep. Rodney Davis in an House primary in Illinois after redistricting pitted two incumbent Republicans against each other, NBC News projected.

Miller's victory marked another win for former President Donald Trump, as well, who backed her as part of his effort to oust several incumbent Republicans deemed insufficiently loyal. Davis ran afoul of Trump by supporting the establishment of an independent commission to investigate the Jan. 6 riot. Davis supported the never-chartered independent commission, not the House select committee now probing the Capitol attack, which held its sixth public hearing Tuesday.

We’re doomed. America doesn’t care and wants this radical right wing religious bend.

It has been eighteen months and one of the biggest operations in FBI history. If they haven't been able to press firearms charges against rioters it's because there isn't sufficient proof that these people were armed.

Christopher Alberts of Maryland was indicted for carrying a Taurus G2C semi-automatic handgun on Capitol grounds on January 6.

Off-duty Drug Enforcement Administration agent Mark Sami Ibrahim, 32, was also indicted by a grand jury for bringing a firearm within the United States Capitol and its grounds.

Like, he specifically surrounded the building with clueless tourists so his elite assault squad of four armed men, a guy in a Viking costume, and a crowd of rednecks could subjugate Congress? Congress who had already been teargassed by their own security and been immediately evacuated afterwards.

Trump had planned all this, yet neglected to collude with his own limo driver beforehand to secure transportation. Thereby necessitating that he attempt to steal his own limo.

[quote]OP/R91: Is the accusation specifically that Trump planned the riot at the Capitol out beforehand and intended to join it after his speech ended?

One of the new disclosures is that, at the Ellipse Rally, when Trump was informed that the crowds were armed and being stopped from entering, he ordered that the magnetometers be turned off so that they would not be detained. "They're not here to hurt 𝑚𝑒," he said.

That it was planned beforehand is not merely allegation; that has been firmly established. What's new to this hearing is that Trump's announcement that he intended to accompany the crowd to the Capitol was not mere lip-service; he actually tried to go, but the Secret Service refused to take him there. So there was a tantrum, with Trump screaming, 'I'm the fucking president, and you have to do what I say!' and the SS declining. So Trump lunged at the steering wheel, trying to redirect the vehicle, and put his tiny raccoon hands on the driver's shoulders and neck. He was taken back to the West Wing in a fit of rage.

[quote]Like, he specifically surrounded the building with clueless tourists so his elite assault squad of four armed men, a guy in a Viking costume, and a crowd of rednecks could subjugate Congress?

There were considerably more than four. Some forty connected with the Proud Boys have actually been charged, which is probably by no means all of them; Enrique Tarrio had announced that he was distributing PBs in small cells all over the Capitol, and not wearing trademark PB outfits. The Oathkeepers also entered the Capitol building from two directions, using 'stack' formations, with the definite goal of taking legislators captive, and killing them. '3 Percenters' were also present.

Trump spent the afternoon in the White House watching the assault on television, and refusing for hours to intervene or call it off, despite pleas from staffers that he do so. When told that the crowd was howling for Pence to be hung, he said that Pence deserved it, and that the crowd was doing nothing wrong.
