Response to still_one (Original post)

12. There is no question about it.

When the dust settles and the FBI is going full throttle on the investigations, there will be a number of arrests of members of Congress who are accomplices in an insurrection conspiracy.

Prediction: Boebart and Greene will resign. The Arizona and Alabama Congressional delegations will be investigated and prosecuted for conspiring to overthrow the government. This will still be a slow-motion trainwreck for the GOP. The paramilitary squads that invaded the Capitol Building will be picked apart by FBI investigators. This won't be pretty. It will be methodical and effective. I'm saying this because the FBI's time as Trump's whipping boy is coming to an end, and the investigators will be intent on redeeming themselves as a crack LEA. It's a bad time for the insurgents.

Trump's army of Congressional supporters must have imagined that their coup would be successful and that, by now, Biden's inauguration would be cancelled and Trump will have won a demand that the election be re-done or the votes would be recounted, OR, from a more destructive insurrection with more dead, Trump would just declare martial law and suspend the inauguration until he is declared the winner. They must have imagined that their insurrection was morally and legally justified, and that no consequences would ever be applied to them. Members of Congress who helped in the insurrection apparently deluded themselves into believing that they would be REWARDED for their parts in the mob violence. So we see how Trump's delusions have a contagious quality to them.
