We have reported on the saddening developments following the Capitol Hill protests – the shameful arrest practices and the brutal treatment of the protesters in prison, one of which lost an eye to a police beating.
We’re also researching how exactly the security broke down that day, and the evidence is growing that the conspiracy runs much deeper than we thought.
What’s missing here is the context
When we say that there might’ve been a plan to allow for it all to happen, we don’t know who exactly “allowed it.”
Well, Rep. Jim Banks might have provided just that – the much-needed context:
On Sunday, Banks appeared on Fox News and said:
“Due to the rules of the United States Capitol, the power structure of the Capitol, Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, has more control and authority and responsibility over the leadership of the Capitol Police than anyone else in the United States Capitol…So she doesn’t want us to ask these questions because at the end of the day, she is ultimately responsible for the breakdown of security at the capitol that happened on January 6,”Fox News
Someone wise once said, “In a room where people unanimously maintain a conspiracy of silence, one word of truth sounds like a pistol shot.”
