    This kangaroo court, made up of nothing but dedicated opponents of President Trump, is not going to call any witnesses that won't support the committee's line of argument. So, what's to get excited about over Impeachment III?

    And I quote from this link:
    Capitol Police Sgt. Aquilino Gonell told lawmakers that he was insulted by Trump’s description of the January 6th rioters as “loving.”

    “It is a pathetic excuse for his behavior, for something that he himself helped to create this monstrosity. I’m still recovering from those ‘hugs and kisses’ that day,” Gonell said. He added:

    It was not Antifa, it was not or Black Lives [Matter], it was not the FBI; it was his supporters that he sent them over to the Capitol that day. And he could have done a lot of things. One of them was to tell them to stop. He talks about sacrificing, sacrifices; well now, the only thing that he has sacrificed is the institutions of the country and the country itself only for his ego.


    This officer is absolutely right. This all happened because of Trump's ego. That's it. Trump didn't care one bit about the country or its people, upholding democracy, or personal integrity. He just couldn't handle losing an election.

    Perhaps Trump-worshippers may find some kindness in their heart and time in their apparently extremely busy schedules to listen to the four officers.

    This is not even from American media.

    I thought it was interesting to hear the one officer describe how the rioters were yelling to kill him with his own firearm. I think people underestimate how close things were to going even further down the chaotic rabbit-hole.

    I do continue to wonder what would have happened had that rioter with Zipline handcuffs got a hold of Pelosi.

    Perhaps people who want Americans to think that their interest is in having a fair investigation could reconsider the urge to start off by using a term like "Trump-worshippers." :doh:

    Those were police officers who saved our country and protected the vice president from the terrorists attacking the Capitol.

    They were prepared to lay down their lives for our elected officials and the Constitution. A little respect and thanks for them is in order here.

    Fortunately, we dodged a bullet this time. But many of the instigators and backers of the terrorists are still free. And they learned from this failure. Next time, they'll do better. And there will be a next time, if we don't make sure they can't.

    D.C. Cop Defines ‘Terrorists’ To Explain Why He Refers To U.S. Capitol Rioters That Way
    “I can see why somebody would take difficulty with the title of terrorist. It’s gained quite a lot of notoriety in our vocabulary prior to now few many years … ,” Hodges advised the Home choose committee when requested by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) about his use of the time period. “However I got here ready.”


    “The time period home terrorism means actions that contain acts harmful to human life which are a violation of the prison legal guidelines of the USA or of any state. And (b) look like supposed to intimidate or coerce the civilian inhabitants, or to affect the coverage of a authorities by intimidation or coercion, or to have an effect on the conduct of a authorities by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping.”

    He's right; they are terrorists, and we should start calling them what they are.

    So much for "blue lives matter." Obviously Republican support for the Capitol police ends unless they conceal or dismiss the truth about the insurrection that almost killed them.

    Yeah, they'll be back. I think that the Republican party needs to get itself together. Conspirators seem to be gaining influence over the traditional republican establishment. Which is really unfortunate for republican voters seeking a legitimate leader to get behind.

    Mitch McConnell said he was too busy to listen to the police officers' testimony.

    Apparently, Jim Jordan admitted that he was on the phone to Trump on Jan. 6. Which means he could be called as a witness.

    That would be interesting.

    What percentage of the protestors actually entered the building and what percentage of those who entered the building actually did anything other than just walk around inside? People are way over exaggerating what actually took place that day. Yeah some idiots showed up and caused havoc but what percentage of the protestors actually participated in that? I’m betting it’s less than 1%. I think everyone here is overlooking that fact.

    Well, let's take a look...

    Rioters maced, trampled Capitol officers: New documents show depth of Jan. 6 attack
    Two firefighters loaned to Washington for the day were the only medics on the Capitol steps Jan. 6, trying to triage injured officers as they watched the angry mob swell and attack police working to protect Congress.


    Law enforcement agents were "being pulled into the crowd and trampled, assaulted with scaffolding materials, and/or bear maced by protesters," wrote Arlington County firefighter Taylor Blunt in an after-action memo. Some couldn’t walk, and had to be dragged to safety.

    Graphic Video of Capitol Rioters Mercilessly Beating Cop Goes Viral
    A graphic video surfaced on social media showing pro-Trump supporters dragging and mercilessly beating a Capitol police officer, as he laid helpless on the ground amid raging attackers.

    How do you "over exaggerate" a mob of terrorists storming the Capitol, attacking police officers, and seeking to hang the Vice President?

    Please explain to me why this should make a difference in the facts of what happened that day?
    No one at all is claiming that all the people there that day are responsible for what happened.

    What PERCENTAGE of the protestors participated? Would you say that Americans are murderers and rapists based on the actions of less than 1% of Americans?

    Ok so then we can agree that less than 1% of Trump supporters attacked the capital and less than 1% are actually terrorists? That’s the only point I’m trying to make.

    Anyone who saw the thousands of people at the Eclipse that day and saw the Capital being attacked knows that there were considerably fewer people attacking the Capital than had gone to Trump's protest that day.

    But I would say that people who were/are supportive of those who attacked Congress that day are just as much 'terrorists' as those who committed the actual acts.

    Er....were you complaining when a Republican Congress spent months and millions investigating four deaths in Benghazi?

    Dearhs partially caused by a Republican Congress' cutting security budgets at embassies?

    Any conservative that spent 2012-16 making mountains out of molehills has no right to criticize this mountainous attack on our capitol.
