+Grim Reaper 6 Posted March 24 #1 Share Posted March 24 Quote Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and other lawmakers emerged Fridayfrom a visit to Jan. 6 defendants incarcerated in the D.C. jail and proclaimed them to be victims of an alleged “two-tier injustice system.” Greene said, “We have to return freedom and due-process rights to these pre-trial Jan. 6 defendants.” But these inmates are not victims. And the congressional delegation’s embrace of them is an insult to the approximately 140 police officerswho were assaulted during the attack on the U.S. Capitol. We know that because we obtained, and for the first time published, the D.C. Department of Correction’s official list of the 20 Jan. 6 inmatesheld as of March 13, 2023. Here is what Greene and other top Republicans don’t want you to know. None of the 20 inmates are “political prisoners.” All of them have been charged with committing serious offenses on Jan. 6, 2021. Greene referred to them as “pre-trial” defendants — but nine of the 20 have already been convicted of, or pleaded guilty to, at least some of the charges against them. Seventeen of the 20 have been charged with assaulting law enforcement officers during the attack on the U.S. Capitol; Eight of the 17 have been either convicted at trial (two) or pleaded guilty (six) to assaulting officers. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/house-republicans-continue-gop-s-affront-to-law-enforcement/ar-AA192Qxb?cvid=bda7a822c580424981ad3eac49ac8e0b&ei=20 2 1 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
