"He participated in the first mass violence event in which every single participant is going to be arrested and sent to prison"

I think that this will be largely true. A more well-documented crime there rarely has been. Find and convict them all.

Jesus. The more insurrectionists we hear from the more it's clear they weren't doctors, lawyers or engineers stirmin* the capital. Christ, our poor education problem is really paying dividends now, isn't it?

Exactly.

Tell it to the judge.

And then he can tell the story over and over again to his cellmate while sitting in a federal prison.

Uh huh.

Sounds like he was committed to the cause, but not so when it comes to going to jail for the cause or his beliefs. Just another thoughtless loudmouth who thought it was some cosplay thing where they get to dress up like an insurgent, whoop it up in public, boast about their stupid lawlessness on FB, and expect to not suffer any consequences. Funny that the right wing news organs tried to blame this event on Antifa. One thing to keep in mind is that Antifa folks are usually prepared to go to jail. All of these riot stooges must have thought that Trump was going to get them off the charges, throw their bail and cover their legal expenses.

Find this guy, lock him up, then post his picture in every paper in the country...

There's also video of him he recorded the day of the event in which he claims to have been "the first one to hop down into the chamber". He didn't just get caught up in the moment. According to his own words he helped lead it.

Wouldn't that just prove he approved of and supported the ransacking and desecration of our nation's capitol?

He got "caught up in the moment," so he drove to Boise, Idaho to Washington DC and shht in the capitol building?

How long did that moment last?

When you get caught up in the moment you suddenly find yourself dancing or singing or giving someone a hug.

Not storming the capitol building on the other side of the country.

That's more about being a moron and getting caught up in Donnie's web of lies and hate.

Woman arrested at Capitol 'didn't know' she was on Capitol grounds, attorney says
www.newstimes.com

...The attorney for Groton resident Victoria Bergeson, charged in connection to Wednesday's protests in Washington, said he will seek a jury trial, arguing that his client was not aware she was on U.S. Capitol grounds when she was arrested.

"People assume she's part of that crazed mob," attorney Sam Bogash said during an interview Saturday. "She was never even that close to the building."

Bergeson, 40, was one of two people identified as from Connecticut who were arrested and charged after a mob stormed the Capitol building in an attempt to stop the certification of Electoral College votes in favor of President-elect Joe Biden....

Jacob Anthony Chansley, Adam Johnson and Derrick Evans were all charged in a federal court Saturday for their alleged actions during Wednesday's insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, said a DOJ statement.

The Justice Department said that two of the men charged Saturday were seen in some of the best-known images of the mob that stormed the Capitol after being spurred on by President Trump's remarks at a rally. ...

The reluctance with going after politicians seems to be that it will be characterized as being political. Regarding politicians, aspect seems to matter more than the law and order aspect.

"The reluctance with going after politicians seems to be that it will be characterized as being political."

I think much of the reluctance to go after politicians is based on the idea that you can lose an election and then be at the mercy of your opponent. It's a precedent most politicians are smart enough not to want to make.

But then the Trumpie politicians go and take it to a level we can't ignore. There must be consequences.

There will be consequences. They will be relatively mild for everybody that didn't attack police. Many will plea bargain a fine and that's that. It's mostly mild property damage on an insured structure.

#26 Woman arrested at Capitol 'didn't know' she was on Capitol grounds, attorney says

"According to an arrest log, Bergeson and Mendez were arrested around 7:15 p.m. An arrest affidavit said police issued three warnings for Bergeson and five other women to "disperse and go inside."

An arrest affidavit for Mendez's arrest said he was arrested at the same location and time with eight other men."

This looks like their argument isn't going to make it very far! LMAO! (Police report is linked in the article). Also let me say one more thing here: WTF?!?!?!?!?!? This is white privilege in action. Can you imagine even 1, much less three warnings to anyone in the BLM protests? F**k me! Wow.

Good ol' boy Evans, freshman to the House of Representatives, isn't starting off on a good foot. Personally he should be refused his seat by the House.

"They will be relatively mild for everybody that didn't attack police."

At least YOU wish that.

I don't. Ignorance is no excuse.

If they set foot inside the capitol they should get ten years. And then it depends on what they did while inside and what they brought with them or took.

"Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."

83 arrests so far. But these are just the easy ones, the low hanging fruit as they say.

From Lewzer's Executive Order 13933:

It is the policy of the United States to prosecute to the fullest extent permitted under Federal law, and as appropriate, any person or any entity that destroys, damages, vandalizes, or desecrates a monument, memorial, or statue within the United States or otherwise vandalizes government property. The desire of the Congress to protect Federal property is clearly reflected in section 1361 of title 18, United States Code, which authorizes a penalty of up to 10 years' imprisonment for the willful injury of Federal property.

Put photos and video in front of those 83 to identify those who were especially guilty of severe crimes in exchange for leniency and we'll get a lot more arrested and charged.

And for entertainment value, from the same EO:

Some particularly misguided public officials even appear to have accepted the idea that violence can be virtuous and have prevented their police from enforcing the law and protecting public monuments, memorials, and statues from the mob's ropes and graffiti.

How times change.

Of course. If they have to. But they don't have to. Yet.

But I would want severe penalties for the leaders. They need to be mage examples of. They need the "book" that they were trying to overthrow thrown right at them.

They earned it. Just like Trump has earned a second impeachment.

There is zero chance of mistaking when you're on the Capitol Grounds, and especially in broad daylight. It's surround by expanses of lawn, the perimeter of the grounds surrounded on all four sides by 2 streets (1st SE & SW) and 2 avenues (Independence & Constitution Ave.

A quick look at her phone's location data will put that claim to rest.

Also, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies including the Defense Dept will be scouring emails and websites for posts discussing this insurrection beforehand and any others who discussed sedition against the United States. They are now guaranteed to be considered enemies of the United States.

No doubt they'll also get in Parler's now down website via their former host, Amazon Web Services, to take a look at user posts, among many other sites right wingers frequent. Reddit too.

No one who's discussed a civil war or taking down our government should feel safe.
