A once-in-a-generation political crisis that’s systematically tightened its grip on the foundations of America’s democracy is coming to a crescendo with this month’s hearings on the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Thursday’s prime-time hearing held by the House Select Committee on the Jan. 6 Attack was the first of many. The committee has promised detailed accounts of how former President Donald Trump and a militant group of his supporters plotted and acted to overthrow the 2020 presidential election and thwart the peaceful transfer of power to President Joe Biden.

Yet another dog and pony show from the useless politicians...these hearings are as pointless as the Clinton impeachment. It's all for show, there's no substance there, much like most politics these days...I think Plato was right, we need Philosopher Kings in charge, not the fools we have these days.

Right jill, a scam artist defrauds ordinary people out of $250,000,000 and causes many of his marks to commit felonies on January 6th 2020. All told by GQP officials that participated in his failed administration. Move along folks, nothing to see here.

Sad thing is these besotted people are still giving him money. Don't be complaining about the economy if you can afford to continue funding Trump World.

Trump has been conning the rubes for years. It's simply astounding that anyone supported or continues to support this criminal grifter. The "Let's Go Brandon" flags flying around Gillette confirm ignorance is thriving in the area.
