If you listen to Democrats and anti-Trump liberal Republicans like Sen. Mitt Romney and Rep. Liz Cheney, you'd think that nothing was being done about the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Never mind the FBI's all-out hunts and raids across 44 states. Never mind the continued detention of an unknown number of pro-Trump supporters. Never mind the more than 2,000 criminal charges brought by federal prosecutors against nearly 500 Americans arrested over the past four months....

Republicans are right to oppose this charade and the continued weaponization of Jan. 6. It's not about finding the truth. It's about foisting the same old false narratives about conservatives on the public....

Patriots should be united in demanding answers about the murder of Jan. 6 protester Ashli Babbitt....

There is no good reason to keep these defendants locked up pending trial....



Man in Pelosi’s Office Discusses Jail Conditions for January 6 Detainees, American Greatness, May 25, 2021.

“First off, all the cells are contaminated with black mold, even the sink we are supposed to drink out of,” Barnett said....  The cells are roughly 70 square feet with a concrete slab for a bed, a toilet, and a sink.

Detainees are held in solitary confinement conditions for 23 hours a day. Breakfast, Barnett said, arrives at 3:30 in the morning and is inedible “slop.” Dinner usually consists of bologna....The guards, Barnett said, go out of their way to make life harder for the detainees. “It is purposeful and deliberate collusion, to make every facet of your existence miserable,” 

Shawshank for January 6 Detainees, American Greatness, May 17, 2021:

Which is why so many January 6 detainees now languish in solitary confinement conditions, some reportedly abused by prison guards, denied routine access to family members and defense attorneys. While there’s no doubt most of those behind bars awaiting delayed trials face the most serious charges related to the Capitol breach, the double standard of justice is in clear view. The same Justice Department dropping cases against Portland rioters, including those charged with assaulting federal officers, is treating January 6 defendants as hardened criminals even though most have no criminal records. 
Lang told his father his fellow detainees are being tortured “mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, legally, and spiritually.”...

Time to Confront the U.S. Capitol Police About Its January 6 Lies, American Greatness, May 24, 2021: "While USCP intentionally misleads Americans about what happened on January 6, the agency is concealing the truth about other important matters including the name of the officer who shot Ashli Babbitt."
