On January 6, 2021, many people gathered in Washington, D.C. in favor of the U.S. Constitution and the ability to assemble and express support.
Others were present to produce confusion and disorder and to deftly divert attention away from their own chaotic intentions.
The Guardian claimed that more than 700 people have been accused by the Department of Justice, with only 11 members of a far-right militia facing the most serious allegations of seditious conspiracy.
The majority-Democratic committee members reviewing the events on January 6 are not resolving the issues.
They are also unfriendly toward the past president.
NBC News reported in January that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-California, would not comply with the committee’s request for an interview because the committee “is not conducting a legitimate investigation.”
McCarthy indicated at the time that his phone chat with President Trump during the violence was “very short” and that he was “advising the president what was happening here.”
“There is nothing I can provide the Jan. 6 committee for legislation of them moving forward.” McCarthy continued, “there is nothing in that realm. It is pure politics,” , reported NBC News.
The 45th president criticized the committee for allegedly portraying a false picture of the January 6 incident and stated that the hearings were an attempt by Democrats “to change the narrative of a failing nation.”
