This thread has to be one of the dumbest threads I've ever heard of. Ooooh, Trump was trying to create a coup. Really? Trump was trying to overthrow his own administration? You leftists conspiracy theorists believe in some completely insane conspiracy theories.

He's a U.S. intelligence expert, and Sen. Jason Crow said the same thing after talking to some of his Republican colleagues.

But whatever you need to tell yourself.
Right U.S. intelligence "expert". Are you really that stupid? Hey, someone who called himself an intelligence expert said it, so it must be true!

Are you really that stupid?

And then Sen. Jason Crow - :ROFLMAO: - as if Demecrat politicians never lie.

Are you really that stupid?

Feel free to refute the numbers, I can check back later to see how you're doing.
It's not the numbers. It's where you're getting your information from and how you spend your time. You are one of those who literally get their news from Twitter. And you complain about our sources? I didn't read anything from Twitter even when Trump was on. Twitter is a cesspool. It's rotted your brain.

I know it's not the numbers, so since the numbers themselves can't be attacked, you attack the method by which they were transmitted? If it helps you process the history made today, well, I can understand that.

Try looking him up. : )
There is no reason why I should waste time looking-up a moron politician.

You're suffering from Twitter brain-rot. I suggest leaving cold-turkey.

Remember the guy they arrested during the insurrection with the homemade napalm bombs?

Defendant is charged in a 17-count indictment with firearm and ammunition offenses. On January 6, 2021, a vehicle registered to Defendant was found in close proximity to the U.S. Capitol. U.S. Capitol Police (“USCP”) officers found a small armory inside the Defendant's truck:

(1) a loaded handgun;
(2) a loaded rifle;
(3) a loaded shotgun;
(4) several large capacity ammunition-feeding devices loaded with more than ten rounds of rifle ammunition;
(5) hundreds of rounds of ammunition;
(6) a crossbow with bolts;
(7) several machetes;
(8) camouflage smoke devices;
(9) a stun gun;
(10) 11 mason jars containing a flammable liquid, with a hole punched in the top of each jar; and
(11) lighters and rags. Defendant also had two loaded firearms on his person.

According to the government's proffer, the mixture in the mason jars creates an explosive mixture that has the effect of napalm. In addition, surveillance images show Defendant in attendance at the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, and USCP agents found handwritten notes in Defendant's car, including information about elected representatives, a judge, and a quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln referencing overthrowing the government.

All of this raises significant concerns about Defendant's intentions with respect to weaponry and destructive devices found in the Defendant's truck. This factor weighs heavily in favor of pretrial detention.
. . . .

The timing of Defendant's travel to D.C., and the handwritten notes found in his vehicle suggest that he came here with the intent to use the cache of firepower found in his vehicle to commit violence against government officials or to assist others in doing so. Given the substantial number of firearms and homemade incendiary devices found in his possession --suggesting a ready access to both --the undersigned has no confidence that any condition or combination of conditions would reasonably assure ensure the safety of the community.

Lawmakers who conspired with Capitol attackers in legal peril
If any members of Congress are proven to have colluded with the rioters, their position likely won't save them from criminal liability.

Capitol rioters included highly trained ex-military and cops

WASHINGTON (AP) — As President Donald Trump’s supporters massed outside the Capitol last week and sang the national anthem, a line of men wearing olive-drab helmets and body armor trudged purposefully up the marble stairs in a single-file line, each man holding the jacket collar of the one ahead.

The formation, known as “Ranger File,” is standard operating procedure for a combat team that is “stacking up” to breach a building — instantly recognizable to any U.S. soldier or Marine who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was a chilling sign that many at the vanguard of the mob that stormed the seat of American democracy either had military training or were trained by those who did.

"The girls were gang raped for more than an hour and forced to perform oral sex. They were kicked, had teeth knocked out and hair pulled out. Their ribs were broken. A red nylon belt was pulled so tightly around Ertman's neck the belt snapped. Shoe laces were used to strangle Pena."

Don't you mean peaceful demonstrators? Or are you a racist bigot?

You're derailing the thread using a common tactic of posting whataboutisms to deflect from the uncomfortable information you either can't refute or can't justify or don't want associated with your tribe. Feel free to start a new thread, I won't be arguing with you about stuff that's unrelated to the insurrection at the Capitol.
