No one knows if the DOJ is doing anything about January 6th except [View all]

they have brought cases against those who breached or committed violence upon others that day.

What we do know is there has been zero indication they are pursuing the planners or organizers.

Having lived through fitzmas, 2016, meueller, my confidence is low with them (DOJ) taking any action in those more egregious crimes.

I would change my mind about it though if it were the republicans in control and the Dems plotted an insurrection.

Call me jaded, call me skeptical, whatever. But I think history shows my position and belief holds more credence than those who believe they are doing some super duper secret thingies when there has not been not even one indication they are doing so.

I will be very happy to be wrong.
