    That is interesting. Only charged with a misdemeanor, so presumably not one of the leaders or violent people, one wonders what he could have to add to the investigation.

    Perhaps consider why he was only charged with a misdemeanor…

    Trump ‘appears to have been personally involved in planning’ Jan 6 riot, says Cheney

    Steve Bannon’s refusal to cooperate in the investigation of the 6 January Capitol riots suggests that former president Donald Trump“was personally involved in the planning and execution” of the insurrection, Liz Cheney said on Tuesday.

    The Republican representative’s statement came during a meeting of the House committee investigating the violent insurrection. The committee voted unanimously to hold the former White House advisor in contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena for documents and testimony concerning the attacks.

    By the way, thanks for keeping us updated. Some of us, at least, appreciate it.

    Would like to see this allegation fleshed out a bit and know her reasons for saying this - at least beyond Bannon’s refusal to appear.

    So if Bannon can ignore a subpoena with impunity, why can't the rest of us? Equal protection my foot. I guess rule of law only applies to some. I know the house will vote today to refer the matter to the justice dept, however I fully expect he will skate and that the process will take so long that the clock will run out at the mid terms if the gop retakes the house. Then the entire matter will get buried.

    Pretty sure you have to have ignored 136 pages if you have the audacity or ignorance to assert “unarmed.”

    I think the scenario you suggest is exactly right.

    or the pretense that she was acting as a "citizen" and not as an insurrectionist attempting to overthrow our legal government process. Disingenuous post at the least.

    And if the mob had managed to get their hands on legislators, beat them, kill them, hold them hostage, many of these same apologists would be screaming "why didn't someone stop them?".

    These trumpkins were armed. You go after police with clubs and bear spray you are armed.

    Show me Babbitt was armed? oh, you cannot because she was not.

    Also, police were so threatened?? There are now troves of video evidence they waved them in the capital building in a calm manner?

    Are you really trying to deny the multitude of assaults on police at the capital?
