The riots on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6 during a demonstration seeking election integrity prompted retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré to audit the security system concluding that House and Senate police and sergeants-at-arms were “complicit.”
“I was surprised that the Pentagon did not have those troops on standby,” Honoré said, adding, “The FBI had a major intelligence failure,” and, “I think once this is all uncovered, it was complicit actions by Capitol Police,” according to Fox News on Feb. 19.
After ignoring the destructive riots generated by the Marxist Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and antifa, during which thousands of small businesses were burned and many people died, police officers among them, the Democrats are using what happened on Capitol Hill to further push their leftist agenda.
This is what Sen. Josh Hawley, (R-Mo.), said, singling out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as quoted by Huffington Post.
“I’m concerned that they continue to treat the January 6 catastrophe, that criminal riot as an excuse to seize power, to control more power, to step on people’s Second Amendment rights to take away their First Amendment rights,” Hawley warned.
He added, “She is interested in power and in amassing power and an excuse to keep hold of power, including those thousands of troops who are still at the Capitol who are still there treating it like an armed camp. Why? No one will say, but this is what Pelosi is interested in.”
On the one hand, the Democrats tried to impeach former President Donald Trump, who was exonerated of the accusations of promoting the violence that broke out in the Capitol, and apparently the crowd had been infiltrated by professional extremists, and complicity of the authorities, as Honoré exposed.
On the other hand, Pelosi is taking the opportunity to escalate a repressive law against “domestic terrorists,” which she has been preparing since last year.
Thus, she recently announced the creation of a special commission to investigate, even more, the events that occurred in the Capitol on Jan. 6, and said that the commission would be similar to the one that investigated the attacks of Sep. 11, 2001, in which thousands of people died, according to The Daily Beast of Feb. 15.
Since the MAGA movement constitutes the largest political force opposed to the Democrats, the action is being interpreted as an act of criminalization of the opposition, in the best communist style.
Journalist and writer Paul Sperry wrote on his Twitter account about his concerns of the new legislation.
DEVELOPING: Democrats in both the House and Senate are planning to draft legislation to classify MAGA rallies as “domestic terrorist activity” and require the FBI, DOJ & DHS to take steps to prevent such “domestic terrorism.” Sen. Durbin is leading effort along with Rep Schneider
