Bennie Thompson says Jan. 6 hearings helped ‘pressure’ DOJ to bring case against Trump

Rep. Bennie Johnson (D-Miss.), chairman of the House’s select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the Capitol, said the hearings on the insurrection helped “put significant pressure” on the Department of Justice (DOJ) to begin a probe into former President Trump’s efforts to overturn the election.

“I think our investigation made the case,” Thompson said Saturday on MSNBC, adding “I think those hearings, we held, put significant pressure on the Department of Justice to come forward.”

WASHINGTON – Proud Boys member Joseph Biggs was sentenced Thursday to 17 years in prison – the second-longest sentence yet related to the Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021 − for his role in the seditious conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election and keep Donald Trump in the White House.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly sentenced another Proud Boys member, Zachary Rehl, to 15 years in prison on Thursday after he was also convicted of seditious conspiracy and other charges.

Former Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio faces sentencing in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Proud Boys national chairman Enrique Tarrio will be sentenced on Tuesday for a plot to attack the U.S. Capitol in a failed bid to stop the transfer of presidential power after Donald Trump lost the 2020 election.

Tarrio will be the final Proud Boys leader convicted of seditious conspiracy in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack to receive his punishment. Three fellow Proud Boys found guilty by a Washington jury of the rarely used sedition charge were sentenced last week to prison terms ranging from 15 to 18 years.

Our DOJ is doing an excellent job tempering justice with mercy. Those there with bad intentions are getting what they deserve. Those who were there to protest or to attend a political rally but got caught up in the emotion of the moment are getting the mercy they deserve.

While at times our system of justice is over the top political. Most of the time such as dealing with the January 6th protest they are being non political.

Many on the left including some here over reacted and were and are over emotionally about January 6th. With their personal political motivations behind most of their thinking and beliefs they wanted to see all treated the way our justice system is treating the few who have earned and deserve harsh treatment.

Thankfully our DOJ has not done anything to escalate the situation.

Then why are Republicans demanding that they be pardoned and are attacking the DoJ?

Still moving the goal posts. Still in denial. Still refusing to admit you were wrong. How embarrassing.

Still going on about it being a protest despite reality, eh? No one over reacted. People are heading to prison long term for sedition. Judges actually gave these guys lighter sentences than they deserve, the DOJ WAS PURSUING THE MAX and might appeal. Investigations are ongoing. You claimed it wouldn’t happen. You continuously denied it and now you still are, despite the fact that the leaders of both the oath keepers and proud boys have now been charged with seditious conspiracy and Trump has been indicted for attempting to defraud the United States to overthrow the election. Simply amazing. You really are an idiot of epic proportions.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Nashville man called “Zip Tie Guy” was sentenced on Friday to nearly five years in prison for his role in the deadly riots at the U.S. Capitol.

Mitt Romney sent this text to Mitch McConnell on Jan. 2, 2021:

"In case you have not heard this, I just got a call from Angus King, who said that he had spoken with a senior official at the Pentagon who reports that they are seeing very disturbing social media traffic regarding the protests planned on the 6th. There are calls to burn down your home, Mitch; to smuggle guns into DC, and to storm the Capitol. I hope that sufficient security plans are in place, but I am concerned that the instigator—the President—is the one who commands the reinforcements the DC and Capitol police might require."

A Jan. 6 rioter was convicted and sentenced in secret. No one will say why

Hundreds of rioters have been charged, convicted and sentenced for joining the mob attack on the U.S. Capitol. Unlike their cases, Samuel Lazar’s appears to have been resolved in secret — kept under seal with no explanation, even after his release from prison.

Lazar, 37, of Ephrata, Pennsylvania, was arrested in July 2021 on charges that he came to the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, dressed in tactical gear and protective goggles, and used chemical spray on officers who were desperately trying to beat back the angry Donald Trump supporters.

Trump aide who told police officers to 'hang' themselves at Jan. 6 riot is no longer with the campaign

The deputy director of Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign in New Hampshire, Dylan Quattrucci, has left the campaign, according to one of Trump’s senior aides.

Quattrucci was near the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and in August, NBC News reported that a video of Quattrucci showed him telling police officers “go hang yourself” during the riot. There is no evidence that he entered the building.

‘Jan. 6 choir’ member sentenced to 7 years in Capitol attack

A man who joined a nightly performance of the national anthem inside the D.C. jail that has been promoted by former president Donald Trump and his allies was sentenced to seven years in prison for assaulting police and obstructing Congress on Jan. 6.

Shane Jenkins, 46, acknowledged in D.C. federal court that he had an “extensive” criminal history and apologized “for all the pain and suffering I’ve caused.” But, he added: “I love this country. I’m not some crazed maniac.”

'Bullhorn Lady' sentenced to nearly 5 years in prison for smashing window, encouraging mob on Jan. 6

WASHINGTON — A Pennsylvania woman known as “Bullhorn Lady” for her efforts to encourage other rioters to enter the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was sentenced Tuesday to nearly five years in prison.

Rachel Marie Powell, 43, was convicted earlier this year in a bench trial of multiple felony counts for her role in the riot, including obstruction of an official proceeding, civil disorder and entering and remaining in a restricted area with a dangerous weapon. Powell can be heard on Jan. 6 using a bullhorn to tell other rioters, “People should probably coordinate together if you’re going to take this building.” Although she was convicted of using an ice ax to smash a window in an effort to create an entryway into a congressional office, she avoided the more serious felony version that has resulted in a terrorism enhancement in other Jan. 6 cases.

The GOP loves hate & violence so much for moral values.

Republican praises January 6 attacker’s ‘good faith and core principles’

Seeking leniency for a January 6 rioter charged with assaulting police, the Louisiana Republican congressman Clay Higgins – a former law enforcement officer himself – saluted the man’s “good character, faith and core principles”.

In video taken during the attack on Congress on 6 January 2021, the rioter was seen to say: “It’s going to be violent and yes, if you are asking, ‘Is Ryan Nichols going to bring violence? Yes, Ryan Nichols is going to bring violence.’”

Ohio man sentenced to nearly 5 years in prison for attacks on police during Capitol riot

An Ohio man who repeatedly attacked police officers as he joined a mob of Donald Trump supporters in storming the U.S. Capitol was sentenced on Thursday to nearly five years in prison.

Kenneth Joseph Owen Thomas has acted as a “one-man misinformation machine” since the Jan. 6, 2021, riot, using his social media platforms to spread false narratives about the attack, according to federal prosecutors. They say Thomas produces more than 20 hours of Jan. 6-related online content every week.
