Despite the lack of a true January 6th Commission, Democrats are pressing on with their investigation into the events of the attack on the Capitol and just what may have gone on behind the scenes during the planning stages. Federal prosecutors have charged more than 400 people in more than 40 states with participating in the January 6th riot, and arrests continue almost daily.
As Republicans desperately try to spin a new reason behind the insurrection–first it was “Antifa and Black Lives Matter dressed as MAGA”, now they’re attempting to blame the FBI for orchestrating the attack and blaming it on Trump supporters–Democrats are learning even more about how miscommunications in the days before the 6th and the deliberate retention of the National Guard.
Bits and pieces of information are still coming together on the intelligence gathered before the riot, and just how some of the more fringe militia groups may have been in contact with members of Congress. As more facts from that day are shared thanks to the eyewitness testimonies, such as Officer Michael Fanone, the walls are closing in on those who want to forget any of it ever happened.
With Tucker Carlson continuing to push baseless conspiracies about January 6th and Republicans grasping at any new desperate narrative except for the actual truth, MSNBC’s Chuck Todd gave his audience a refresher of just how the planning came together and what did and didn’t go wrong for the Trump camp that day.
