Before there can be talk about unity for what divides the United States, there must be justice for the violent, authoritarian movement within the Republican Party responsible for the deadly terrorist attack on the US Capitol. That's according to a top former Republican strategist.
Republicans Go to The Fringes: ‘Don’t Think for a Moment’ that We’re Going to Stop Our Pursuit for the Truth About ‘Biden Crime Family’
At a time when even elected Republicans are embracing fabulist conspiracy theories, here's one more: "the Biden crime family."
Rep. Lieu: If GOP Members of Congress ‘Incited Insurrection,’ They Should Be Investigated by the FBI and Prosecuted
Congressional Republicans who helped incite last week's terrorist attack on the US Capitol in support of outgoing President Donald Trump should be investigated both by the House and by the FBI, according to a Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee.
Certainly for those people of color--particularly Black people--who saw a very different reception from Capitol Police towards the Trump-backing terrorists storming the halls of Congress compared to racial confrontations in cities like Baltimore, Md., and elsewhere. The difference: both the police and those coming in rioting were all largely white.
The threat of domestic terrorists and insurrectionists loyal to Donald Trump won't disappear when Trump leaves office. Rather, that group is likely to become something that the United States hasn't seen in centuries: a widespread "permanent insurgency," according to the former assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI.
In an extraordinary statement, one of Washington DC's largest and most powerful pro-business trade groups is calling for Vice President Mike Pence to "seriously consider" look at using an unprecedented provision of the US Constitution to remove Donald Trump from office following a day of rioting and insurrection by Trump supporters at the US Capitol.

Both men -- who appeared on the verge of delivering to Democrats a Senate majority which appeared elusive just weeks ago -- each gave rousing speeches designed to reignite enthusiasm for democracy and American representative government.
Even with just weeks left in office, Donald Trump deserves to be impeached a second time for the contents of his phone call over the weekend with Georgia elections officials, according to an erstwhile Trump staffer-turned-critic.
