“The House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol is expected to stage six public hearings in June on how Donald Trump and some allies broke the law as they sought to overturn the 2020 election results, according to sources familiar with the inquiry. According to a draft schedule reviewed by the Guardian, the select committee intends to hold six hearings, with the first and last in prime time, where its lawyers will run through how Trump’s schemes took shape before the election and culminated with the Capitol attack. The select committee appears to be planning for the hearings to be extensive affairs. The prime time hearings are currently scheduled to last between 1.5 and 2 hours and the morning hearings between 2 and 2.5 hours.
The counter-programming on Newsmax and OAN will probably be “The Democratic Debacle of Social Security” and “The benefits of indentured servitude.” while FOX will probably run a repeat of Tucker Carlson’s Ball Tanning Special.
The House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol is taking the extraordinary step of sending subpoenas to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and four other Republican lawmakers who have rejected the panel’s requests to voluntarily cooperate. Including: Reps., Mo Brooks of Alabama, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and (of course) Jim Jordan of Ohio
Democratic Chait of the Committee Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, said in a statement.:
“The Select Committee has learned that several of our colleagues have information relevant to our investigation into the attack on January 6th and the events leading up to it. Before we hold our hearings next month, we wished to provide members the opportunity to discuss these matters with the committee voluntarily. Regrettably, the individuals receiving subpoenas today have refused and we’re forced to take this step to help ensure the committee uncovers facts concerning January 6th. We urge our colleagues to comply with the law, do their patriotic duty, and cooperate with our investigation as hundreds of other witnesses have done.”
The committee has scheduled the depositions for the members of Congress for the end of May
“Dear Patriots, It’s been a long, dark, and twisting road. After a year of delays, I’m hopeful that tomorrow will finally bring my sentencing, and that that will finally bring us to the beginning of the end. It has been a year of indescribable pain, stress, worry, pressure, and fear. My hope is that no matter what happens at my sentencing, even if it’s the very worst possible outcome, that it will bring us to a point of being able to let go of the burden of constantly wondering what is next, and asking, “What if? What if?”. I hope that just simply knowing what IS will be the beginning of moving forward from all of this. There have been 10 delays which have strung my case out for a year. I can only hope that sentencing will be tomorrow, as scheduled, but it ain’t over until it’s ACTUALLY over- so please include in your prayers that this really does take place tomorrow and that we’re on to the first step of moving on.” – Convicted HomoCON Jan 6 rioter and Walk Away Founder- Brandon Straka
What a Drama Queen!
Federal prosecutors on Thursday recommended a sentence of only four months of home detention and three years probation for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol. (It’s noted that Straka encouraged and celebrated the violence of the day but did not personally engage in violence or property destruction during the riot.)
In other words: Traitor and right wing nutjob begs for empathy about what his crimes ‘put him through’ while he raises money for nothing because the grift must go on!
Ohio congressman Jim Jordan has said he won’t voluntarily cooperate with the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol, describing the “Democrat obsession” as the latest of the “partisan witch hunts.”
The Republican, who represents Ohio’s 4th congressional district, wrote in a letter to committee chair rep. Bennie Thompson that the inquiry into the January 6 riot amounts to an “unprecedented and inappropriate demand to examine the basis for a colleague’s decision on a particular matter pending” before the House of Representatives
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wasted no time ripping Joe Biden for his speech remembering Jan. 6, accusing the president of “brazen politicization.” Graham disagreed with the tenor of Biden’s speech, which he blasted in a tweet that somehow invoked the Taliban.
This, of course, is very different from what Graham said a year ago [clip below] on the day of the Capitol riot. The senator claimed that he was done with Trump, moments after the extraordinary violence and mayhem of that day, as Congress was about to certify the former president’s defeat.
Miss Graham: The domestic terrorist attack a year ago was “politicized” the moment it happened, so pull your petticoats out of your ass and bless your poor little non-existent heart.
House Minority Leader Republican Kevin McCarthy on the one year anniversary of the Jan. 6 attacks in a letter to his GOP colleagues accused Democrats of using the days tragic domestic terrorist attack and events as a “partisan political weapon.”
“As we have said from the start, the actions of that day were lawless and as wrong as wrong can be. Our Capitol should never be compromised and those who broke the law deserve to face legal repercussions and full accountability. Unfortunately, one year later, the majority party seems no closer to answering the central question of how the Capitol was left so unprepared and what must be done to ensure it never happens again,” he added. “Instead, they are using it as a partisan political weapon to further divide our country.”
McCarthy’s squirming because he has a personal interest after his phone call with then President Trump during the insurrectionist terrorist attach became public knowledge.
Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who chairs the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, “invited” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Wednesday for a “voluntary interview”.\
If he has information he wants to share with us and is willing to voluntarily come in, I’m not taking the invitation off the table,” Thompson said during an interview with ABC News.
“If Leader McCarthy has nothing to hide, he can voluntarily come before the committee.”
A man on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for attacking police and storming the Capital during the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol domestic terrorist attack is now seeking asylum in Belarus, Russia according to state-run tv.
Evan Neumann, 48, is wanted in the United States on charges of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, as well as for assaulting, resisting and obstructing law enforcement during civil disorder.
Neumann sold his California home in spring and was thought to have moved to Ukraine to evade arrest, ABC News reported this summer. Neumann “sought justice and asked uncomfortable questions” following the 2020 U.S. elections disputed by ex-President Donald Trump, the presenter added, “but lost almost everything and is being persecuted by the U.S. government.”
An “Anti-January 6 Commission” press conference headlined by Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene spiraled into a delicious train-wreck when a few protestors with a whistle interrupted the Tuesday afternoon TRATORFEST before ultimately being canceled amid calls from reporters asking Matt Gaetz if he was a pedophile!
The press conference was taking place outside the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington DC. Greene and Gaetz were joined by (Loopy) Louie Gohmert (Texas) and Paul Gosar (Arizona).
According to a release, the press conference was regarding the “treatment of Jan. 6th prisoners.” Tuesday morning, the House Select Committee held their first hearing on the investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Watch the clips here and pay attention to the woman in the white asking Gaetz that only valid question there. https://t.co/cS51HPTrhJ

Shocking, horrifying, and in-depth the New York Times’s Visual Investigations team spent months reviewing thousands of videos, many filmed by the rioters themselves and since deleted from social media. In doing so they have created s a 40-minute panoramic take on the Jan. insurrection and what is perhaps the most complete visual depiction of the Capitol riot to date.
