    If no one is held accountable for 1/6,the next presidential election will be the final election this country ever has,for there will be a completed coup! There will be a forceful overtaking of the office and an autocratic ruler will be installed!

  • Paul on May 1, 2022

    The committee is a fraud! Trump authorized the callup of 20,000 National Guard troops on Jan. 5th to help protect the capitol. The Capitol Police chief requested the troops but Nancy Pelosi rejected them! And the committee says her office is off limits in their hearings! WHY? WHAT ARE THEY TRYING TO HIDE?

  • Anthony Amaturo on May 1, 2022

    The real problem is a large part of the country have moved past Jan 6th and really don't care what happens there. Literally the only thing they are thinking is, the party in power has caused a huge amount of inflation, and the party not in power can fix it…..

  • Joseph Fass on May 1, 2022

    No one seems to be hearing the public, who are tired of being sold to. Trump was successful because he knows how to speak like he's not a politician, like he's just telling the unvarnished truth (while, of course, lying constantly).

    When your kids cross from being annoying or irresponsible into territory where they're going to hurt someone, get hurt, or otherwise seriously screw up, you stop scolding or yelling at them and speak quietly, simply, and briefly, looking them in the eye, not embellishing.

    Do NOT "sell, sell, sell" the inner workings of 1/6. Present things clearly, simply, and fully without any embellishment or polishing. The "selling", the "communication" strategizing, all gives potential independent thinkers an excuse to say "they're putting their side in the best possible light; I can just ignore this because it's not the whole story". Stop with the "messaging" and switch to 100% honesty.

    YOUR RIGHT TE RULE OF LAW

  • Ron Zundell on May 1, 2022

    If the Department of Justice does not act on all this smoking gun evidence, they will be relinquishing their responsibility to hold people at the highest level of government responsible for an attempted coup

  • WillyWendel on May 1, 2022

    So, refer these people to the DOJ for investigation and prosecution. Quit wringing your hands about the 'optics of partisanship', and DO THE RIGHT THING. Provide the oversight which is your Constitutional purview and duty, and Defend the Constitution and the Rule of Law.

    Why can't the GOP bring proof of fraud , I mean proof proof

  • ProjectKnowledge on May 1, 2022

    I strongly disagree that the Dems will do anything to effectively hold the Repubs accountable for their treasonous behavior: 1) The Dems are Republican-lite. 2) The Dems are the controlled opposition. Their job is to control people of color, specifically Black folks and the Black electorate. 3) The Dems are serving the same masters, the Donor class. 4) The Dems apparently refuse to take any page from the Repubs playbook because they do not want to "win," or "save democracy" because they are afraid of the Repubs at every level of the fight. Lastly, if the 45th and cabal were Muslim, Black, Latino, women (white or melinated), this entire country would be unified in its rebuke and repressive in its approach to dealing with the problem. Do you think for one nano-second if the Insurrectionists were Black or Latinos or Muslim people scaling the walls and vandalizing, of the Citadel of Democracy, there would this nonchalant and hypocritical attitude toward that despicable act perpetrated on the foundation of this country? The short answer is, No! White people, your hypocrisy is the leading cause of the demise of this country.

    Michael Steele is lays on point! Dems need to listen to real Republicans!

  • nan's nook on May 1, 2022

    I'm in 100% agreement!!! Dems need to get their act together on every1 involved with J6 coup attempt. At least, the cases won't have 2 be judged by an entirely controlled senate. The hearings should be held in the evening so every Dem can hear it. The DOJ also needs 2 get all those subpoenas 2gether, served & get if their proverbial a$$es in gear. I have no idea why the Democratic leadership is so timid & afraid of what the
    GOP's responses are. They have no proof of their lies, judges haven't agreed with Trump's lawyers. Leadership

  • david johnson on May 1, 2022

    Look people, this isn't going anywhere. Trump is not, I repeat, trump is not going to be charged with anything. Most republicans don't care about democracy or the constitution, their main thought is race related. Honestly they are following trump because they think he is their savior for the good Ole days per say. The democrats need to grow a backbone and stop letting the republicans push them around. What they need to do is go ahead and charge trump and his co-conspirators an set example for the others who are thinking about going against our democracy. Stop with all the excuses.

  • Angela Cartwright on May 2, 2022

    WHY IS THAT YOU WOULD VOTE FOR CRIMINALS AND LIARS. REPUBLICANS DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE. PLEASE VOTE BLUE.

  • Linda Hagar on May 2, 2022

    Its NOT JUST THE DEMOCRATICS…BUT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT. I EXPECT THE PEOPLE ..NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE TO DO THEIR JOBS. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT….ARE YOU HEARING WHAT I'M SAYING. DO YOUR JOB. WHAT IS THE HOLD UP ON YOUR END. ?????
    A VIOLATION OF A SUBPOENA NEEDS TO BE DELT WITH IN DAYS….NOT WEEKS OR MONTHS……IF YOU CANT DO YOUR JOB…RESIGN AND LET SOMEONE DO IT….JUST GET IT DONE. TODAY…..

    Mr Steel is absolutely right…..yes sell it…. HBO take it on ……make people understand what happened, Russia Trump corruption Jan 6th is all connected!

    Just noticed the headline – Committee readies for POSSIBLE June hearings? So with all the talk, the hearings may not continue? At the beginning we heard they'd be made public in April, then we heard, May, then June and now POSSIBLY June? I am very worried we will have to prepare ourselves for the GOP takeover of the country,

  • T. R. Campbell on May 2, 2022

    Because nobody is buying their political dialogue. These clowns need to get back to the work of Americans rather than supporting the political class.

  • Kelley Crockett on May 2, 2022

    So so true. Some of us out here are still following the rule of law but we are well aware that a huge proportion of Americans are not wanting to see any kind of accountability.

  • Jeannette Coleman on May 2, 2022

    Republicans are trying to make America just like them. Homophobic, ignorant, crazy,and divisive. By any means including make American citizens suffer.

  • Janet Hawkinn on May 2, 2022

    I agree tremendously.

  • DiZastur on May 2, 2022

    As a bad neighbour, I only started paying attention to American politics in 2015. I realized I've lived next to the US for 50 years and didn't have a clue what a primary was. Now that I have a basic grasp of what goes on there, I feel repulsed by the GOP in general. I find it heartening that former members of that now horror show are not holding back criticizing their successors. Kudos to Nicole Wallace, Charlie Sykes, Michael Steele, Joe Scarborough and so many others who saw this crap for what it is. Oh I see a Rick Wilson video in my feed, another NOT moron, it's awesome so many people are switched on…gives me hope

  • Priscilla Chapman on May 2, 2022

    What are you talking about that Democrats don’t care?????? Bull crap!!!

  • Taylor Sartre on May 3, 2022

    Hello! If Democrats fail to prosecute ANYONE for fear of appearing to be "political" they are, essentially, being "political"! It is apolitical to follow the rule of law for God's sake.

  • Moira Bligh on May 3, 2022

    The US political and Voting System allows for the uneven application of accountability and justice. If Republicans say nothing to see here… then nothing to see!!!

  • Millie Girl on May 3, 2022

    DO YOUR OWN FACT CHECKING!

    DON'T JUST BELIEVE IT BECAUSE SOMEONE YOU LIKE SAID IT OR IT'S JUST WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE OR IT'S WHAT YOU ALWAYS THOUGHT!

    PROVE IT!

    People's minds are truly twisted, Republican leadership (the masters of criminal politics) have never looked out for the average citizens, they've never supported what's best for John/JoAnn Q Public, THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS, they have CONSISTENTLY looked out for their personal interest which has always meant they've had to lookout for the interest of the wealthy & powerful, so they can be well connected & keep getting their pockets lined & thereby insuring that they'd rise to the wealth they desire (you can't get that wealth on public salary only) & would remain there even after they've gone from politics. ALMOST EVERY MAJOR POLICY that has ever benefited the MAJORITY of citizens of the United States of America were policies presented & passed due to Democratic leadership, some with a few Republicans. Policies that benefited cooperate America, you know, BIG BUSINESS, BIG TECH, BIG PHARM, OIL & GAS, ALL ENERGY, ETC, were most often brought to the forefront & passed due to Republican leadership & sometimes a few Democrats. Most often, for the wealthy people & BIG BUSINESS, the Republican leadership stops, listens & most often positively responds on their behave; and most often for the average citizen, the MAJORITY & small businesses, Democratic leadership stops, listens & most often positively responds on their behave. Go back 50 years and prove the facts yourself, look at federal policies & then look at your state policies. THEY TELL YOU WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO HEAR, THEY LIE AND MAKE IT SOUND LIKE TRUTH, BUT LET FACTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES, DON'T BE LAZY, OUR LIVES & COUNTRY IS TOO IMPORTANT, DO YOUR OWN FACT CHECKING TRY FERERAL & STATE GOVERNMENTAL SOURCES & OTHER REPUTABLE SOURCES!

  • Brad Erlwein on May 9, 2022

    The Select Committee is toothless, because the DOJ is a joke under Garland. Early in his campaign, Biden said that "[he thought] prosecuting a [any] former president would be bad for Democracy". Garland is just being a good soldier and doing what Old Joe wants. Merrick Garland and the Biden Administration are afraid of the civil unrest that Trump threatens. This inherent weakness of character is embellished by the belief that the best way to deal with the crimes of the powerful is to forget about them and focus on doing good. This is the kind of weak-minded strategy that has been the hallmark of Biden's career. Trump and his minions will surely remain above the law because of this failure of leadership. And by the end of the day, it won't matter whether the Biden Administration is complicit, culpable or merely an unwitting dupe in this deadly threat to our great experiment in Democracy: it will be a distinction of no difference in wake from the demise of our way of life.

  • Michael Evicks on May 15, 2022

    If our Laws are written and no one is held accountable to those Laws the question stands that if a tree falls in he woods did it make a sound? When you allow people to lie and re-write their history with out consequence the people who look om, expecting justice to win are taken aback and fall into dismay. I've been watching MSNBC's coverage since Trump got in office… Its like watching one book report after another! I can't stand to watch any more
