    trump will probably be facing criminal charges from the US government, the Iraqi and Iranian governments.

    I wonder which one will put him in a courtroom first.....

    I'm wondering if America can afford to let him come close to standing in any courtroom.

    He won't have any interest in protecting the establishment after the 20th January. He will have plenty of establishment "enemies" to attack (in revenge for slights and transgressions both real and imagined), the kind of knowledge which only a few trusted officials are ever supposed to be privy to, a fertile and demented imagination, and an angry rabble of Neanderthals hanging on his every word.

    I think they'll probably just shoot him.

    You fucking moron there is no comparison. Do you comprehend the English language? Look up treason, sedition and coup for starters. If BLM tried to do what your redneck buddies did in DC we would be looking at hundreds of dead.

    Pro-Trump dark money groups organized the rally that led to deadly Capitol Hill riot


    Pro-Trump protesters storm into the U.S. Capitol during clashes with police, during a rally to contest the certification of the 2020 U.S. presidential election results by the U.S. Congress, in Washington, U.S, January 6, 2021.
    Shannon Stapelton | REUTERS


    Key Points

    • The rally, officially known as the “March to Save America,” was largely organized by a 501(c)(4) group known as Women for America First.
    • Women for America First’s Facebook pages show they were calling on supporters to be part of what they described as a “caravan” to Washington for the event.


    Women for Trump were involved with setting up a backstage area, the permit says.

    According to video obtained by CNBC, those backstage included the president, Donald Trump Jr., his girlfriend and Trump campaign advisor Kimberly Guilfoyle, his brother Eric Trump and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.

    Many behind the scenes were laughing and dancing before the festivities ensued.

    If so, agents want to hear from you. They are conducting a massive effort to track down and arrest the people who broke into the Capitol building on Wednesday. They want everyone in the city, and across the US, to join their crime-solving team.




    What's the situation so far?

    • Five people died, including one Capitol Police officer
    • So far there have been at least 82 arrests
    • Investigators in DC say they have received over 17,000 tips from the public on the rioters
    • The FBI is offering a $50,000 (£37,000) reward for information leading to the arrest of an individual who planted pipe bombs at Democratic and Republican party headquarters

    Sounds like a good start to prosecute

    Surely must be some Chinese or Russian involvement? Not newsworthy otherwise.

    Why would you say that . . . with your usual 'edgy' popcorn emoji following? How many threads do you see with Chinese and Russian 'involvement' content or are you sliding down the <insert name here> path?

    Isn't it true that the Capitol protection guard is (was) one of the best funded and equipped? So, quite surprised that such a mob could enter without much defence...

    Perhaps, somebody could help them? But it would be a conspiration theory, won't be?

    Looks like a planning failure in the big picture but individually some capitol police may have let the protesters in. Also, there were state representatives in the crowd that used their badges for access. All being investigated now so stay tuned.

    Some were poorly trained from what I could see. I saw a video on the BBC showing a cop/security guard inside the building raising a baton and shouting at the intruders to "back up". An intruder took a step forward, the cop/guard turned and ran back 10 metres or so, only to repeat the same thing over and over again. Pointless. That said, they probably never expected to see intruders inside the building.

    ^ Saw that. He was one lone policeman against a mob and he couldn’t get any back up. Don’t know if he had a gun but if he only had that baton, he would’ve been overrun by the intruders anyway. I also read the Black cops inside the Capitol were taking abuse from the white crowd.
