I was wondering why this seemed to just disappear during the actual impeachment. Doesn't sound like it would take Mata Hari to figure this one out.

Good.

I know we all want justice now, but please, take your time with this one. Let's make sure we get every charge we can.

Not that I disagree with this sentiment, but "I'll take Things Said Before the Mueller Investigation for $400".  Hopefully Garland is the real deal.

I'm not too worried.  Even Muller said the only reason there were no charges were because of the whole 'sitting President' policy.  Well, not only is that gone but it never applied to lowly congresscritters in the first place.  These people committed crimes out in the open.  Without a DoJ actively trying to subvert justice, it's going to be very hard NOT to prosecute them.

Cause trump wasn't leading them and the Democrats kept things appropriately focused, while the republicans weren't exactly gonna say "No, I helped too!"

With any luck, by the end of next week. Committee vote should be Monday and they'll try to have the floor vote by Friday.

I'm thinking of that rule that you can't obstruct a Congressperson from voting thing that comes up when they blow by the metal detectors. There would have to be arrangements where they are led into Congress in handcuffs to vote. It'd be like work release for Congress members.

For the record IANAL.

Technically yes, but if they are sent to prison for conspiracy, terrorism and insurrection... Amendment 14 comes into play.

And yes, I think it would be used, and yes I think some fellow Republicans would vote them out.

They will have to establish some direct connection, previous communication for anything to stick.
Otherwise it's a "I was just giving a tour to patriotic amuricans and didn't know that tours were suspended because of the pandemic" excuse.

It will be interesting to see how they will prove intent on the part of the tour guides. "Oh, I had no idea they were going to do something bad the next day. How could I have known?"

Let's hope they were dumb enough to keep phone and/or email records and not destroy them.

On that front, both Pelosi and Shummer call for a recess of both sides, congress critters can't claim that immunity and are cuffed post haste, plus biden gets to make all the recess appointments he wants that are being held up by the Republican minority.

On one hand, yeah, take your time.  Don't fark it up.

On the other hand, farking step on it!  Because every time something like this comes up, it takes SO long to finally get things moving that people stop giving a shiat about it, most of the defendants have poisoned the minds of their supporters with bullshiat about both sides being bad, and in the end, NOTHING comes of it.

Considering there is actual video evidence of this particular situation, exactly what more investigating needs to be done?  "Well, we need to watch the video frame by frame, and make sure that it is the same person in every single frame.  Then we need to confirm that that person is who we think they are.  We also need to interview witnesses, subpoena location data from their phone, and speak with the security team that maintains the cameras, just in case."

Seriously...  I already know this will happen.  They will waste a ton of time, and by the time they make their move the whole thing won't matter, and most people won't believe it was even a problem.

Anytime someone wants to prove me wrong here, I'm waiting.
