In his closing remarks before the House select committee investigating Jan. 6, Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn compared the mob that stormed the Capitol, fueled by Trump's false claims of election fraud, to a hit man hired to kill someone.
"If a hit man is hired and he kills somebody, the hit man goes to jail. But not only does the hit man go to jail, but the person who hired them does. It was an attack carried out on Jan. 6 and a hit man sent them. I want you to get to the bottom of that," Dunn told lawmakers at the panel's first official hearing on Tuesday.

Another Insurrectionist gets lenient treatment. Repeatedly those who were involved in the attack on constitution have been allowed to go free while they await trial. And once they are prosecuted they get a slap on the wrist. And as for the architects of the January 6th insurrection they are not facing any justice.
Rep. Cawthorn called the people who are in jail for attempting to overthrow the government “political hostages,” and when asked when the terrorists would be called back to Washington, D.C., said, “we are working on it.” He also promised that the terrorism inciters have a few plans in motion that he can’t publicly talk about right now.
