An information gap following the Capitol assault has fueled fears among members of Congress that it was an inside job involving the Capitol Police.

No doubt there were Trump sympathizers among the Capitol Police. They'll be rooted out. Same with the Secret Service. And who knows? Maybe the military will root out the white nationlists and anarchists within their ranks. It needs to be done.

I saw the FBI briefing today.

They have a lot to atone for.

The Great MAGA Hunt of 2021 has begun. With a vengeance.

This twunt was live-tweeting Pelosi's location while Bunker Bitch's scat-munching cop killers were ransacking the Capitol.

An inside job with Capitol police and I think a few Republican Representatives and Senators whose names we already know.

I would not be surprised if there were "insiders" in the Executive branch as well.

I think we have not even started to see the tip of the iceberg here...

Did you catch the news about the massive 70tb 'scrape' of Parler? They got everything including names, deleted posts & videos, drivers license photos users uploaded to verify their identities ... the whole enchilada.

The FBI is having a field day with that information.

Yes, I heard of that.

That 70TB was the source of the location metadata that gizmodo used for the article I cited in #7

...GPS coordinates taken from 618 Parler videos analyzed by Gizmodo has already been sought after by FBI as part of a sweeping nationwide search for potential suspects, at least 20 of whom are already in custody....

Mikie Sherrill claims Congress members gave 'reconnaissance' tours day before Capitol raid

Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ), during a live webcast Tuesday evening, said she witnessed some members of Congress leading people through the Capitol on Jan. 5 in what she termed a "reconnaissance for the next day" when insurrectionists took part in a deadly siege on the legislative branch.

"I'm going to see they are held accountable, and if necessary, ensure that they don't serve in Congress," she said, speaking sedately, but severely.

Sherrill did not specify whether the "groups" were visibly staunch adherents of President Trump's, nor did she detail what she described as "a reconnaissance," a term that hearkens back to Sherrill's prior military service and refers to an exploratory mission for the purpose of gaining information.

"For all of those who refuse to participate in this democracy, refuse to see power turned over peacefully, who refuse to heed the will of the people, as we do in a democracy" Sherrill said, "we are now on different sides of this line."

If this is what happened, there will definitely be some Republicans kicked out of Congress under the 14th Amendment before this is finished.

The Great MAGA Hunt of 2021 has begun. With a vengeance.

This is an opportunity for law enforcement agencies throughout the US to rid themselves of the "rotten apple(s)" that spoil the barrel. Let's see if they do it.

I think what will come out in the next couple weeks will astound some but only confirm what many of us have believed. When they catch this seditionist - yes he should be charged as such - they need the names and if possible the proof. If this is indeed true, these lawmakers need to be strung up. Not only should they be kicked out of Congress they need to be put on trial for their crimes.

I actually have no doubt it did happen. If they are feeding the mob location information on Pelosi (IF true...) this would just be a natural precursor.

Here is an easy example of how Dems are ruining their own party. I can state it one way that I know Libs will do everything they can to ignore but reality proves them wrong. There is as much evidence of this being an inside job as there is of significant election fraud. Everything you do to keep supporting this conspiracy means you are acting EXACTLY like Trump. How does it feel to be a Trumper? I mean, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, after all.

How about the part where the Capitol police opened the barricades and opened the doors to the Capitol building?

Really? You believe there is evidence of significant election fraud?

There is as much evidence of this being an inside job as there is of significant election fraud.

The Qanon Rep was tweeting Nancy Pelosi's location while the rioters were trying to locate and kidnap her from inside the capitol.

Ok. Show me yours.

What is your significant evidence of election fraud?

Why are they afraid?

Because that is how terrorism works.

It terrorizes you.

Now ask yourself this. Why are any of our representatives afraid to vote their conscience?

What are they afraid of? Who is scaring them? Who is doing the terrorizing?
