WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly a year since its inception, the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol will go public with its findings starting this week as lawmakers hope to show the American public how democracy came to the brink of disaster. The series of hearings that will take place over the next several weeks begin with a prime-time session Thursday night in which the nine-member panel plans to give an overview of its 11-month investigation. More than 1,000 people have been interviewed by the panel, and only snippets of that testimony have been revealed to the public, mostly through court filings.


They keep using the term "Insurrection," which historically refers to an "armed" attempt to overthrow an established government. There is a reason why they choose to use the term insurrection. The term insurrection is in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment where it basically says that nobody can hold an official office who has engaged in insurrection. Trump is clearly the target. At the end of the day, it won't work, but you can bet that the media will have a field day with it.

No reason to watch this nonsense. It’s is simply intended to let Schiff and Cheney launch their presidential campaigns.

What an ignorant article. This so-called riot was already judged by the FBI as not classified as an ‘insurrection’. To keep calling it that is just an incendiary lie. The ‘right wing extremists’ (also known as conservatives) did not break into the Capital. They were let in by Capital police and there is video to prove it. The AP seems to think we’re all eager to watch a bunch of camera ho politicians perform in an actual circus. They are deluded.

Knowing that the whole purpose is to prevent PDJT from running for office again, I see no reason to waste my time. My hope is that the ratings are so low that it will be abandoned shortly.

I want to know why the bank manager gave the guards the day off on the day of the robbery. The same manager refused additional security measures for the Sup Ct justices after an assassination attempt, ie, an insurrection attempt against the judiciary.

Thankfully the Republicans will be all over this, pointing out the lies and misrepresentation of all that precipitated the protests and the grave concerns we all have about the efforts to destroy our country. Oh.. wait. Got caught up in the dream that someone was actually representing American Citizens who are sick and shocked by what is happening.

How could we possibly know how to watch and know what to know about these contrived hearings without the direction of the AssPress. As I said above, trust is based upon experience, and way too many people no longer watch the major networks because they prove themselves untrustworthy over and over again.

What we know is this is hogwash and that the majority of those who did anything on Jan.6 other than walk through an open door after being waved in by Capitol Police, were FBI plants and Antifa instigators. Moreover, Nancy Pelosi set this up by refusing to allow adequate security at the capitol, despite it being offered by the Trump admisnsitration.

MIAMI -- Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ripped into President Joe Biden Thursday morning during a South Florida stop when asked about inflation and high gas prices. "So, the question is about gas prices and inflation, you know what I could do, if you could give me a time machine to go back to January 2021, we would just do the opposite of what Biden has done, and we'd be in a better spot," said DeSantis. "Now. I mean, I really think it's, he's got a lot of chutzpah to attack energy producers, when he campaigned saying he was going to shut down energy production in the United States."

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Tampa Bay Rays fans spoke to Fox News about Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decision to veto $35 million in funding for a new training facility. "We as taxpayers should just worry about bringing lots of … fans to the area and support that," Bonnie, of Bradenton, told Fox News. "The governor has no business in that." After vetoing the funding, DeSantis said Friday that he doesn't "support giving taxpayer dollars to professional sports stadiums" and that "it's inappropriate to subsidize political activism of a private corporation." The Rays had pledged to donate $50,000 to Everytown for Gun Safety in late May following the Uvalde, Texas, shooting.

His every utterance seems calculated to send progressives into a frenzy. He's one of the most prolific political fundraisers in America. His endorsements of other like-minded America First conservative candidates help those beneficiaries pull ahead in crowded primaries. And the worst-kept secret in American politics is that he wants to swap out his Sunshine State address for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as soon as possible. No, the politician is not Donald Trump but rather Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who lately seems bent on executing just about every page of the former president's political playbook—only with a sunnier demeanor, less offensive language and fewer of the personal antics that make Trump so polarizing.

President Joe Biden is on the verge of announcing $10,000 in federal student loan forgiveness per borrower for millions of Americans, according to The Washington Post. "The White House's latest plans called for limiting debt forgiveness to Americans who earned less than $150,000 in the previous year, or less than $300,000 for married couples filing jointly," write Post reporters Tyler Pager, Danielle Douglas-Gabriel, and Jeff Stein. Their sources did not say "whether the administration will simultaneously require interest and payments to resume at the end of August, when the current pause is scheduled to lapse."

The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) announced on Tuesday that it will officially rename the monkeypox to address concerns about the stigma and racism associated with the word. Monkeypox has thus far infected over 1,600 people in more than two dozen countries, first breaking out in the United States this past May in Massachusetts and possibly having originated in Canada. W.H.O. director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced on Tuesday that the organization will be “working with partners and experts from around the world on changing the name of monkeypox virus, its clades, and the disease it causes.”

The image taken by a White House photographer and published Wednesday night by ABC portrays the Vice President, second lady Karen, his daughter Charlotte and his Republican Congressman Greg sitting and waiting as the chaos unfolded. Karen is seen closing the curtains so rioters couldn't see inside while the vice president, Charlotte and Greg sit and wait on chairs. In the hours before, Greg Pence had voted against certifying Joe Biden's election win and Trump supporters were heard chanting 'hang Mike Pence'.

Leaders of the Jan. 6 select committee say the time has come to interview Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, about her connections to Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the election. Panel Chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and Vice Chair Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) agreed Thursday that the committee needed to delve into Thomas’ role. Thompson’s comments and Cheney’s agreement — confirmed to POLITICO by an aide — coincided with news reports suggesting Thomas had been in touch with at least one key architect of Trump’s bid to cling to power: Attorney John Eastman. “At this point, the information we have come upon

The CDC has issued bizarre guidance telling Americans infected with monkeypox to have sex by masturbating at least six feet away from their partner, among other recommendations. Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says anyone who has the disease must not have sex. But for those who ignore the advice, the agency has published an unusual list of the dos and donts under the bedsheets. Among its tips was also to have sex while still fully-clothed, to ensure all rashes are covered and even to avoid kissing.(Snip)The British Columbia Center for Disease Control said people should 'use barriers, like walls (e.g. glory holes)
