  1. I've watched every single one of the January 6 hearings, in which a bunch of people stormed the Capitol of the United States, showed contempt for police (um, what ever happened to the Blue Lives Matter mantra?), injured people, put out a noose to hang Vice President Mike Pence, and then ran roughshod through the Capitol, including smearing poop inside the building, stealing things and looking like they were not only trying to obstruct a constitutional event but were going to injure or kill congresspeople. It is extremely clear by the last one I saw, Day 7, that Trump was trying anything he possibly could to stay in power and spit on the peaceful transfer of power. He knew it was a lie that the election was stolen, had plenty of challenges that he lost in court, tried to obstruct justice by calling Raffensberger in Georgia, and said he was going to go to the Capitol with people he knew were armed and dangerous. Decent people turned away in disgust at what he and his followers did, and in fact, a whole bunch of the people involved in January 6 have already been arrested, charged, and some serving jail sentences. (more than 840 at last count) . The most recent one Anyway, here are the videos from past hearings. Next one is supposed to be on Thursday night - and here is the latest news from the committee 6/9/2022- 1st hearing (from CBS and Youtube Transcript from NPR: part of that 6/13/2022 - 2nd hearing Transcript from NPR- part of that 6/16/2022 3rd hearing Transcript from NPR- part of that 6/21/2022- 4th hearing Transcript from NPR- part of that 6/23/2022 - 5th hearing Transcript from NPR -part of that 6/28/2022 - 6th hearing Transcript from NPR - part of that 7/12/2022 - 7th hearing Transcript from NPR - part of that
  2. Should be interesting. At the last Jan 6 hearing last week, she testified from a deposition video that there were a number of Republicans, including Matt Gaetz and Mo Brooks, who sought pardons from Trump. Question is, why would you seek a pardon if you did nothing wrong? The Jan 6 committee had originally said last week they were taking a break until mid-July. Makes you wonder what is going to be said today.
  3. 8 months, Hodgkins pled guilty to obstructing an official proceeding. USAToday Incidentally, Hodgkins said at his trial today that "Biden is the rightful President". Hodgkins, unlike some others, did not assault anyone or do damage at the Capitol. More comments from the judge- Said Hodgkins entered the Capitol, you carried a large flag with "Trump 2020" in the Senate. Says Hodgkins actively participated in an event that threatened not only Capitol security but "democracy itself". ... When a mob storms the Capitol, democracy is in trouble. The damage that they caused goes way beyond the delayed certification, it will last for decades. .. It'll be harder to convince other countries to pursue democracy, it'll be harder to convince our children of the value of democracy, we are not more all fearful of the next attack than we ever were. Victims will carry trauma for the rest of their lives. .. Jan 6 attack left a stain that will not go away for years to come. Says Hodgkins came prepared to defend his position and engage with whatever needed to be done. Hodgkins had to see “the mayhem” outside the Capitol building. It was obvious that he was participating... Hodgkins, with his Trump flag on the floor of the U.S. Senate, was illustrating his loyalty to an individual rather than to democracy.
  4. From April 14, 2001 LOOK at this video and you will understand why. This starts at the point where the mob is trying to break down the door and smashing glass. Emptywheel has a breakdown
