So the Republicans are desperate to pin this on the capitol police, and intelligence. So we are supposed to be planning that at the end of every presidential election, to expect that a traitor in chief is running the country and will have a pre-planed with military expertise riot to stay in power. Glad we have this straight as to what the Pub arguments are going to be during this hearing.

So far, not trusting the word of the House Sgt In Arms Irving. Weasel comes to mind. The phone call discrepancy.

I guess no one is watching.

Should have posted here earlier. Very disappointed in Wray, but in his defense it's obvious that the FBI has been beaten down a bit by the Trump admin, with the additional specter of the Comey factor. Basically, his testimony is very couched.

Not watching, but I appreciate the updates.
Whitehouse's questioning was getting to the point, which is the FBI has been an information firewall since Trump came into office, yet without naming names pointed out that certain FBI information seems to be quite accessible by the Senate Republicans.

I find it amusing that conservative talking heads were maligning democrats after 1/6 for being "suddenly pro police" (the vast majority were never anti-police to begin with.) When, of course, we are seeing the flip side here, where the GOP, the party of "blue lives matter," will throw the cops under the bus, anything to avoid blaming Trump and his batshit supporters.

Aire Melville had a excellent show yesterday on MSNBC pointing out in great detail how BLM movement was appropriated by the blue lives matter racists to use against them. And the obvious disregard for police by the right was demonstrated perfectly on the 6th.

Not unexpected, the Republicans stayed as generic as possible and away from things that actually happened on the 6th, and of course pointed out the BLM demonstrations as some sort of justification for tensions in general. Not much real info as usual.

Democrats have ALWAYS been pro good police. Meanwhile the blue lives matter crowd have no problem killing and beating cops with American flags.
