The @FBI  has pinpointed a suspect in its investigation into the death of a US #Capitol  Police officer in the Jan. 6 attack on Congress by supporters of then-President Donald#Trump , the @nytimes  reported on Friday.

THREAT TO ‘BLOW UP THE CAPITOL’: The acting Capitol Police chief warned Congress that domestic terrorists who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6th are now planning an attack during Pres. Biden’s upcoming address to Congress. @rachelvscott  has the details.

Tensions are high in Congress as many Democrats believe that the Republicans who voted against certifying the 2020 election were essentially cheering on the Jan. 6 mob’s effort to kill them. The atmosphere is more distrustful than anyone can remember.

“Of the 47 Republican members of Congress scheduled to speak at CPAC, just nine voted to uphold every state’s election results on Jan. 6. None voted for impeachment.” @daveweigel

Merrick Garland doesn’t believe in borders, compared the Jan 6 riot to the OK City bombing, defended the anti-white bigotry of Kristen Clark, and wants Congress to censor the Internet. Any senator voting to confirm him is an incorrigible establishment hack.

That video made me so sad. Even though I watched the events of Jan 6 unfold in real time, watching again underscores the chilling awfulness of that day. I still can't believe it happened, and that any Republican in Congress has the audacity to say "move on."

On the morning of Jan. 6, Ginni Thomas—wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas—endorsed the protest demanding that Congress overturn the election, then sent her “LOVE” to the demonstrators, who violently overtook the Capitol several hours later. She has not posted since.

Vice President Pence should immediately gather the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment. Congress, which would be required to ratify the action if Trump resists, should do so. Pence should serve until President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated on Jan. 20.

Here’s the harsh reality for Americans who’ve long believed we lived in the greatest democracy on earth: if Raffensberger wasn’t Sec of State in GA and/or if GOP controlled both chambers of Congress, there’s more than a high chance that Biden wouldn’t be president come Jan 20th.

Sen. Josh Hawley fires back after Sen. Pat Toomey and others raise concerns about his plans — along with at least 11 other GOP senators — to object to the electoral vote count when a joint session of Congress meets Jan. 6, per email sent to Senate GOP Conference tonight

Clear signs of Fraud: Ken Starr believes the battle for the White House is now a political fight, as we look ahead to the Jan 6th meeting of congress.

. on President-elect Trump in Jan. 2017: “You take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.” What did he mean by that? Was the highest ranking Democrat in Congress suggesting the Intel community would target the President?

. has spent the last 2 yrs trying to take away people’s healthcare, gut food stamps for kids & seniors, & sell off our public lands to big oil. I can’t wait for Jan 3rd, when we will finally have a Congress that sticks up for everyday Americans & protects our planet.
