        Wonder if they've realized they got no pardons from TRump?
        "Banning books in spite of the 1st amendment, but refusing to regulate guns in spite of "well regulated militia' being in the 2nd amendment makes no sense. Can't think of anyone ever shot by a book

            If they decide to deal instead of twenty years in Federal prison, some higher ups might be getting a bit nervous. Hoo- friggin’-Ray!!! About time.

                They haven’t been sentenced yet. Can’t they deal for shorter time? I think Roger Stone and a few others are on the bubble.

                  I hope they throw the book at him, and everybody else. Drumpf threatening to pardon all Jan 6 paticipants is just another reason not to vote for any Republican, ever again.

                    "Drumpf threatening to pardon all Jan 6 paticipants"

                    King Donald again……..It's about time that immunity from criminal prosecution for Presidents was abolished.
                    That statement constitutes interference in the justice system, making the whole structure a mockery.

                      It is a good day.
                      My wife and I are very happy campers with this verdict.

                        Probably won’t be. They have no time left while investigating Hunter’s laptop.

                        This verdict is huge. Our system still works. And as much as I would like to see these people rot in prison forever, I think we now have a chance of convicting some higher up. I won’t hold my breath waiting for Trump to be convicted of sedition, but he was the one bringing this all together and is guilty as f***.

                          I never understood the argument "we weren't going to do anything unless Trump told us to." If he did or he didn't, it's a conspiracy.

                          Anyway, fat mouth Rhodes made clear that "if Trump doesn't do it, we will", disposing of the contingency of Trump giving the order.
                          Do not speak of "our institutions" unless you make them yours by acting on their behalf.

                            It's interesting that this has set the precedents that Jan6 was seditious, and that there's enough evidence to convict, and that an organizer of such a conspiracy needn't be on site at the time, personally.

                            Remind me who Rhodes and Meggs conspired with, and to what objective? Whose idea was it anyway?

                              That they conspired with each other qualifies as a conspiracy.
