    Rep. Judy Chu, a Democrat from California, called the Pro-Trump attackers that stormed the Capitol "terrorists" who were radicalized by Donald Trump.

    "We were attacked by terrorists, but this time the terrorists were radicalized right here in the United States. Worse, they were radicalized by the President, who intentionally lied to his supporters that the election was stolen, and then told them when to come to D.C., where to protest and who to direct their anger at," Chu said.

    She's 100% right.

    No matter how you slice it, his "stolen election" lies are the reason behind these violent encounters. This is why he needs to be held accountable once he's gone. There's no way, when under oath, that him or any of his minions will be able to say it's not utter BS.

    Don't worry, I'm sure the party of law and order wants someone to be held accountable for this.

    I know you are being sardonic here, but I think many in the party, the establishment, not some of the new Trumpian fringe, would love nothing more than to pin ALL of the blame on the outgoing loser-in-chief. Mitch rode him hard, getting his judicial appointments and tax cuts for the rich, and now would love to put him away wet to rust and rot. The only problem is they have a tricky line to walk, because they need his radicalized base of deplorables. But you already see the small steps in that direction. They are trying to keep many elements of Trumpism and his base of followers while excusing the Josh Hawleys, to be groomed as the next Trumps, and tossing out the old orange one in the trash.

    Legally, all I'll say, is "bring it on", if I'm understanding your claim correctly. Of course, that is predicated that they're defended by legal counsel with an IQ higher than a potato or Rudi Giulani.

    JUST IN—GOP Congresswoman @laurenboebert
    is in a standoff with US Capitol police over her bag which set off metal detectors. She refused to offer the bag over to be searched and is now in a standoff. She infamously wanted to bring a gun to the House.

    She's wasn't inside, sounds more like a win than a standoff.

    If I whisper my wicked marching orders into the ether with no regard to where or how they may bear fruit, I am blameless should a broken spirit carry those orders out upon the innocent, for it was not my hand that took the action merely my lips which let slip their darkest wish. ~Daniel Devereaux 2011
