A small group of House lawmakers came close to physically fighting early Thursday morning as the congressional count of electoral votes stretched into the wee hours and a Pennsylvania Democrat charged that Republicans had been telling “lies” about his state’s votes. Rep. Morgan Griffiths, R-Va., objected after Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Pa., said a breach of the Capitol by an angry mob earlier in the day was “inspired by lies, the same lies you are hearing in this room tonight.”

1. President Trump didn't falsely claim. 2. Republicans are basing their challenges on violations of state laws and the Constitution, not on claims of fraud.

I saw more of an angry mob who voted to elect a fraud in the hallowed halls of Congress than those alleged mobsters (including antifa) who allegedly stormed the Capitol. The world is a less safer place today than ever.

Defrauding and disenfranchising 75 million citizens who voted legally and in good faith is not quite the foulest and vilest crime of the day. It is the brazen, hypocritical denial that there is no proof!

Maybe the Democrat clown should take his complain to the Pennsylvania State Republican Representatives who are complaining . They live there, they know what they are talking about.

Trump a second time,” the wrote.

What a difference a year makes. Last year, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick tweeted praise for the ongoing violent riots that were gripping the country at the time. He stayed on Twitter and even got a $3 million donation from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. This week, President Trump was kicked off Twitter for good for allegedly inciting violence among his supporters before they stormed the U.S. Capitol. The contrast gained immediate attention. [SNIP] In one 2020 tweet highlighted by the site, Kaepernick said of the destructive demonstrations occurring across the country: "When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction."

The New York City man who joined a mob that breached the US Capitol was seen leaving his home Friday for the first time since he was revealed to be the son of a prominent Brooklyn judge. Aaron Mostofsky — who sported a wacky fur costume inside the breached building as he griped about a “stolen election” — was caught on camera leaving his home while carrying a suit on a hanger and a plastic bag. Mostofsky, the son of Brooklyn Supreme Court judge Shlomo Mostofsky, a well-known figure in the Orthodox Jewish community, was apparently still a free man Friday afternoon — as other protesters who stormed the building were arrested.

The FBI’s Washington Field Office released a surveillance photo on Thursday of a person suspected of leaving pipe bombs near both the Republican and Democratic National Committee headquarters on Wednesday. The grainy images does not have much detail, as the suspect is wearing a hooded sweatshirt and mask at the time the photo was taken. The incidents happened as supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol and rioted as members of Congress counted the Electoral College votes. The FBI said there is a $50,000 reward for information that would lead to the location, arrest, and conviction of the suspect.

While chaos gripped Washington D.C., where one woman has been shot dead and dozens of police officers injured, protesters made their way to Inslee's Olympia home where one state trooper stood guard. The trooper urged members of the crowd to stand back but they quickly surrounded the building chanting and he was forced to retreat to stand guard in front of the door.

Big tech has launched an unprecedented and coordinated cyber attack on President Donald Trump and his 74,000,000 voters. As this was happening — the GOP was dead silent. On Friday, Twitter permanently banned hundreds, if not thousands, of Trump supporters and prominent allies — before banning the president himself. Nearly every account that helped to promote the Stop the Steal rallies or challenge the election results were banned, including Ali Alexander, Michael Coudrey, Gen. Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell, and Lin Wood. Countless smaller accounts that supported the president were also getting suspended in a seemingly constant rate. The same has been happening over on Facebook and Instagram.

Beware, 75 million Trump voters.The media is calling for your ideological “cleansing” of Trump thought.In a column and tweet, ABC’s well-respected political director Rick Klein made the call after yesterday’s pro-Trump riots inside the halls of Congress.It is a sentiment throughout much of the political media and among Democrats who are also pointing an accusing finger at aides to President Trump who are resigning before their jobs end on Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day in 13 days. Trump will be an ex-president in 13 days. The fact is that getting rid of Trump is the easy part. Cleansing the movement he commands is going to be something else.

But he has done something so serious that there should be prosecution against him.”Pelosi added that invoking the 25th Amendment is still on the table
