Capitol attack committee chair vows to investigate Trump: 'Nothing is off limits'

In an interview with the Guardian, Thompson said that he is also prepared to depose members of Congress and senior Trump administration officials who might have participated in the insurrection that left five dead and nearly 140 injured.

“Absolutely,” Thompson said of his intent to pursue a wide-ranging inquiry against the former president and some of his most prominent allies on Capitol Hill. “Nothing is off limits.”

The aggressive move to place Trump in the crosshairs of the select committee underscores Thompson’s determination to uncover the root causes of 6 January, even after Senate Republicans, fearing political damage, blocked the creation of a 9/11-style commission.

The move comes at the same time as many Republicans have been seeking to downplay the attack on the Capitol – in which five people died – or, in the case of Trump himself, cast its protagonists in a more positive light.

Two civilians who died during the violent Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol died of natural causes.

A third succumbed to amphetamine intoxication.

A fourth person, 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt, who was fatally shot by a Capitol police officer.

The cause of death for a fifth person, Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who collapsed (HOURS) after confronting rioters and died Jan. 7, remains pending. (Updated to note that the medical examiner's report released in April 2021 said Sicknick suffered strokes and died of natural causes.)


So... the only person that dies in a 'riot' is the person the Police shot? Yeah...  :whatever:

Hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters own millions of assorted firearms.  Curiously no one thought to bring one to an insurrection to overthrow the government.

White Black cop shoots unarmed black white mostly peaceful protestor.  So why weren't we justified in burning down big cities?

No predetermined conclusion is too absurd.
According to the Bible, "know" means "yes."

It's nothing more than Kabuki Theater. The only one's paying attention will be the kooks who want to believe bad things about anyone who's not a Democrat/leftist/prog.
