    Another blindly loyal Trump supporter will be going to prison. Trump himself may wind up in prison – unless "Teflon Don" can find a way to avoid punishment for tax fraud, tax evasion and the incitement of a deadly insurrection.

    Brendan Hunt found guilty of threatening to assault or murder members of Congress
    CNN, Apr 29 2021 1:04 AM ET

    Brendan Hunt, who allegedly threatened the lives of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, now-Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, was found guilty of one count of threatening to assault or murder US officials by a jury in Brooklyn federal court on Wednesday, according to the Eastern District of New York.

    Federal prosecutors charged and tried Hunt, the son of retired New York City family court judge John Hunt. Brendan Hunt will be sentenced in June and faces up to 10 years in prison. Hunt had posted videos of himself at his Queens home in January discussing the January 6 riot at the US Capitol, threatening to kill Senators and encouraging others to go back to the Capitol on Inauguration Day and take their guns. He took the stand in his own defense on Tuesday, telling the court that he didn't really mean what he said in videos and messaging apps about killing elected officials. Hunt testified that he didn't think his rhetoric about killing elected officials could bear real penal consequences because he'd seen the prevalence of "kill Trump" rhetoric, especially from celebrities.

    It's taking a long time but eventually all the blindly loyal Trump supporters who took part in the January 6 Capitol riot will be arrested and charged with federal crimes.

    At Fox News Channel, a.k.a. the Trump Cheerleading Channel, the program hosts worship Trump almost as much as he worships himself and they helped spread his lies that he won the 2020 Presidential election but it was "rigged" and "stolen" from him. Trump's blindly loyal supporters believed the lies and obeyed Trump's call to march to the Capitol on January 6 and "fight like hell." A sleazy lawyer for one of the rioters has come up with an unusual defense tactic:

    Donald Trump insisted he won the 2020 Presidential election (which he lost) and claimed the election was "rigged" and "fraudulent" (which it was not). His blindly loyal supporters believed his lie that the election victory was "stolen" from him. They obeyed Trump's command to "march to the Capitol and "fight like hell or you won't have a country anymore." Miller served as acting Secretary of Defense from November 9, 2020, until January 20, 2021. In March, he spoke with Vice.com: "Would anybody have marched on the Capitol and tried to overrun the Capitol without the President's speech? I think it's pretty much definitive that wouldn't have happened." Now he'll be testifying before Congress. It is expected that he will again blame Trump for inciting the riot – and defend the slow response by the military.

    Pentagon chief during January 6 riot defends military response
    HuffPost, May 11 2021 4:03 PM ET

    President Donald Trump’s acting defense secretary during the January 6 Capitol riots plans to tell Congress that he was concerned in the days before the insurrection that sending troops to the building would fan fears of a military coup and could cause a repeat of the deadly Kent State shootings, according to a copy of prepared remarks obtained by The Associated Press.

    Christopher Miller’s testimony is aimed at defending the Pentagon’s response to the chaos of the day and rebutting broad criticism that military forces were too slow to arrive even as pro-Trump rioters violently breached the building and stormed inside. He casts himself as a deliberate leader who was determined that the military have only limited involvement, a perspective he says was shaped by criticism of the aggressive response to the civil unrest that roiled American cities months earlier, as well as decades-old episodes that ended in violence.

    Today at a Congressional hearing, four Republican Representatives defended the rioters. One even insisted there was no insurrection!

    Retrumplicans consider Mitt Romney and Liz Cheney to be RINOs: Republicans in name only. The reason? They dare to speak the truth and refuse to accept all the lies being spread by Donald Trump and the Retrumplicans.

    ‘I was there’: Mitt Romney sets record straight on January 6 Insurrection
    The Utah Senator responded to House Republicans attempting to rewrite history just months after the violent attack.
    HuffPost, May 13 2021 2:27 PM ET

    Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney says the violent January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol was no ordinary “tourist visit,” as one Republican Congressman claimed this week when describing the thousands of Donald Trump supporters who stormed the building in an attempt to prevent Joe Biden from becoming President. “I was there,” Romney told HuffPost today. “What happened was a violent effort to interfere with and prevent the Constitutional order of installing a new President. As such, it was an insurrection against the Constitution that resulted in severe property damage, severe injuries and death." Romney was a direct witness to the attack, which resulted in five deaths and more than 100 officers injured.

    Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia is the one who said the riot was like a "tourist visit." Rep. Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota called his comment "comically stupid." It really was.

    Oh, poor baby! You should have known better than to trust someone who is a liar, a racist, a white nationalist, a tax evader and a self-serving con artist.

    It would be nice of an increasing number of Retrumplicans would start speaking out against Trump's lies and their party's efforts to downplay the violence of the January 6 Capitol insurrection and paint the rioters as "tourists" and "victims" – but, unfortunately, almost every Congressional Retrumplican worships at the altar of Donald Trump. They figuratively kneel before him and kiss his ring. He continues to rule the Retrumplican party with an iron grip.

    Republican Congressman calls out 'bogus' claims by GOP colleagues downplaying Capitol riot
    CNN, May 16 2021 11:04 M ET

    Republican Representative Fred Upton today called out an effort by some of his GOP colleagues to downplay the Capitol insurrection, saying their "bogus" claims about the deadly attack are evidence of a need to establish a bipartisan commission to investigate the incident. "It's absolutely bogus. You know, I was there. I watched a number of the folks walk down to the White House and then back. I have a balcony on my office. So I saw them go down. I heard the noise, the flash bangs. I smelled some of the gas as it moved my way," the Michigan Congressman told CNN's Dana Bash on State Of The Union when asked about comments made by several Congressional Republicans last week who attempted to rewrite what happened on January 6.

    The comments from the longtime Congressman come as a rift in his party grows between members who are offering an inaccurate account of the insurrection and those who have consistently condemned the violence on January 6 while also casting blame on former President Donald Trump and his 2020 election lies for the attack.
