The messages, sent from South Carolina resident William "Robbie" Norwood on January 7, were included in an FBI affidavit to support charges against him,...
    Left-wing singer and actress Bette Midler told her two million Twitter followers that former President Donald Trump “killed people at the insurrection.” Twitter has not slapped a manipulated media tag on Midler’s tweet accusing the former president of murder. But the company continues to suspend, ban, and purge conservative accounts. “#DonaldTrump KILLED people at the Insurrection. If he had put a gun to their heads, he could not have done a more efficient job,” tweeted Bette Midler. “And two policemen killed themselves from shame. Have you no hearts, #Republicans? Never, ever again say ‘#BlueLivesMatter.’ You’re fucking liars.” #DonaldTrump KILLED people at the Insurrection. If he had put a gun to their heads, he could not have done a more efficient job.

    Wednesday on FNC’s “Hannity,” conservative talker Mark Levin slammed the impeachment trial underway in the U.S. Senate by calling it “one of the stupidest events” in American history. Levin highlighted some of the abnormal circumstances surrounding the January 6 Capitol Hill riot and argued the proceedings were unconstitutional act by a “rogue” Congress. Transcript as follows: LEVIN: First of all, we are watching one of the stupidest events by some of the stupidest people in American history, and history will fix this. We have a man who slept with a Chinese spy as one of the House Democrat managers. We have a man in Raskin, who was one of the most-loud opponents in one of the recent past elections of certifying the electors. We have a political party that cheered on Antifa and Black Lives Matter and called federal law enforcement storm troopers, and here they are bringing this Soviet-style...
    Impeachment prosecutors are planning to prove that Donald Trump incited the January 6 Capitol riots with a dramatic video juxtaposing chaotic scenes at the insurrection with the former president's remarks.    One year after his first impeachment, Trump finds himself the target of an unprecedented second trial beginning Tuesday in the Senate.  The lead prosecutor, Democratic Rep Jamie Raskin of Maryland, offered a preview of the trial in an interview with the New York Times published Sunday.   'The story of the president's actions is both riveting and horrifying,' Raskin said. 'We think that every American should be aware of what happened - that the reason he was impeached by the House and the reason he should be convicted and disqualified from holding future federal office is to make sure that such an attack on our democracy and Constitution never happens again.'   Rather than relying on witness testimony to make their case,...

    CNN anchor John Berman made an unfortunate gaffe Monday while speaking about the upcoming Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump.  The "New Day" co-host was interviewing Sen. Tina Smith, D-Minn., when the introduction to one of his questions turned unintentionally graphic.  SCHUMER MAKES UNFORTUNATE GAFFE ON SENATE FLOOR, SOCIAL MEDIA ERUPTS "So you are going to sit in and listen to the Senate impeachment trial of the former president of the United States, who has been impeached for inciting the erection," Berman said before awkwardly pausing and correcting himself. "Er, inciting the insurrection at the US Capitol."    This isn't the first time a prominent figure botched the word "insurrection" in the same manner. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. went viral last month after making a similar flub.  CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP  "Make no mistake, there will be a trial and when that trial ends, senators will...
    (CNN)Two Republicans from South Carolina have introduced a bill that would allow US Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who was killed during the insurrection three weeks ago, to lie in honor at the Capitol before his burial at Arlington National Cemetery. Rep. Ralph Norman and Sen. Tim Scott introduced the legislation Thursday. If passed, a plaque would be placed in the Capitol in memory of Sicknick and would allow the House Sergeant at Arms to pay for Sicknick's funeral services. The union representing rank-and-file officers "welcome(s) the proposal," which would need to pass with unanimous consent. Sicknick died after being hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during the hours-long fight for control of the Capitol building. "Officer Sicknick died because he put the lives of Members of Congress and their staff before his own safety -- he did his duty," said Gus Papathanasiou, president of the union representing...
    Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows sought to distance the Trump family and their loyal allies from taking accountability for their part in inciting the riots at the Capitol.  Meadows was speaking on 'Fox & Friends' Wednesday when he was asked by Brian Kilmeade if it was wise for Trump and his cronies to host the rally prior to the assault  on the federal building that resulted in five dead.   'When we start looking at the rally, Brian, we are focused more on that than we are really we need to be focused on today,' Meadows claimed. 'When we start to look at America, it needs to be about what is important to people on Main Street.'  Scroll down for video  Marl Meadows was speaking on 'Fox & Friends' Wednesday when he was asked if it was wise for Trump and his cronies to host the rally...

Karen Bass (D-Calif.) if she hadn’t taken a Zoom call in her office last Wednesday afternoon.

An officer told her rioters had begun to tear up the stage that had been set for Joe Biden’s inauguration and asked her to shelter in place. Unlike many of her colleagues, Bass didn’t fear for her life—though she felt fortunate she hadn’t...

    The limited arrests after a mob stormed the Capitol has angered many Americans. Climate activists spoke with the New York Times about their frustration with the double standard of how their peaceful protests are treated, versus the violent mob that caused the insurrection on January 6. Source: Democracy Now!/YouTube The Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., a minister, and community activist and leader of Hip Hop Caucus, a civil and human rights group, told the Times, “There’s two worlds,” he said. “And we’ve got to fix that.” Yearwood spoke about the double standard between those fighting for environmental justice and the Capitol mob. “Up until yesterday, I thought, ‘This is how it’s done. You stop business, you’re going to be arrested, you’re going to be treated this way,” he said. Climate scientists and activists also noticed a stark difference in arrests.

    (CNN)Flags, signs and symbols of racist, white supremacist and extremist groups were displayed along with Trump 2020 banners and American flags at Wednesday's riot at the US Capitol. The pictures tell part of the story of the beliefs of some of those who chose to show up on that day -- from passionate and peaceful Trump supporters to extremists who showed their hate with their symbols as well as their actions. The mixing of the groups is one issue that experts who track extremism and hate have long been concerned about. The certification of the election results proved to be exactly the type of event that brought together various groups and could have led to radical ideas being shared, they say. The initial event, which was heavily promoted and encouraged by President Trump, gave all of these groups something to rally around. "This was an event designed to oppose the...

    At least five people have died following Wednesday's attack. The fallout from the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol spans far and wide, as officials seek accountability for how the rampage, which led to at least five deaths, was allowed to happen. Extremists, egged on by Donald Trump himself, who has repeatedly and falsely claimed the election was somehow stolen from him, stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday, breaking windows, scaling walls, and ransacking congressional offices. The insurrection followed a so-called "Save America" event near the National Mall at which Trump and his allies spoke, spurring supporters on. Five people perished as a result of the mayhem. U.S. Capitol police officer Brian D. Sicknick died Thursday night from his injuries "sustained while on duty," officials said. Air Force veteran and protester Ashli Babbitt was fatally shot by a U.S. Capitol...

Win McNamee/Getty Images QAnon believers played a major role in popularizing the pro-Trump rhetoric that precipitated Wednesday's siege of the US Capitol.  The QAnon conspiracy-theory community shaped the false, right-wing narrative that President-elect Joe Biden had fraudulently won the election.

When pro-Trump rioters stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday, the far-right corners of the internet had been ready for weeks. The "Stop the Steal" movement, which has baselessly alleged that President Donald Trump actually won the presidential election and that President-elect Joe Biden's win was fraudulent, used the internet to organize the violent coup attempt.  But the voter-fraud conspiracy theories peddled by Trump, his allies, and his supporters in the...
    Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images. Former President George W. Bush has mostly held his tongue during President Donald Trump’s turbulent four years in office, but broke that silence in a statement he issued on Wednesday in response to Trump supporters who violently stormed the U.S. Capitol to protest the counting of the Electoral College votes certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s win — events which he notably characterized as an “insurrection.” In the statement, Bush said that he and wife Laura Bush had watched the “scenes of mayhem unfolding at the seat of our Nation’s government in disbelief and dismay,” calling it “a sickening and heartbreaking sight.” “This is how election results are disputed in a banana republic — not our democratic republic,” Bush continued. He then called out those who had incited the protesters into violence, saying he was “appalled” by their “reckless behavior.” “The violent assault on the Capitol —...

(Photo by Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images) The mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol was an unacceptable act of violence and insurrection, several key Republicans said, including Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL), and Gov. Phil Scott (R-VT), and they pointed the finger of blame squarely at President Donald Trump for inciting the unrest. Even former Secretary of Defense James Mattis blamed the president. Mattis, who joined with the nine other living former Defense Secretaries in a scathing Washington Post op-ed a few days ago denouncing the suggestion from Trump allies to involve the military...
