The FBI, after ending a thorough investigation on August 20th lasting more then eight months, concluded that the Capitol Building breach in January was not centrally coordinated by former president Donald Trump, his supporters, or any “far-right” group, as per Reuters.

One would think that all conspiracy theory notions of a “white supremacist”, “white nationalist”, or “ultra-right extremist” group centrally spearheading the unlawful January 6th Capitol Building entry, as the American left has propagandized, would have died. Afterall, that Blue Anon lie has been, with the FBI investigation, completely debunked. The Democrat’s, however, are persisting in falsifying the truth, criminalizing dissent and in a clear authoritarian pursuit, have begun political persecution of conservatives.  

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with the ideological January 6th Commission, set the stage on Tuesday August 24th for the capricious aggrievement of Trump and half the country that voted for him. Even though the FBI’s conclusion makes these hearings a moot legal point, Representative Bennie Thomas (D-MS), who chairs this partisan investigating body, sent letters the following day to eight federal agencies seeking records from Trump, members of his family, staff, administration, and dozens of outsiders who the ruling left has decided may have links to the 45th president (Trump).

The subpoenaed demands call for all White House documents and communications from April 1, 2020, through January 20, 2021, according to Politico. Additionally, as reported by the referenced news site, the requested material which has a September 9th deadline, includes those figures, both inside and outside of government, such as Hope Hicks, former national security adviser Robert O’Brien, Trump adviser Peter Navarro, Kayleigh McEnany, Steve Bannon, Michael Flynn, Melania Trump, all Trump’s adult children except Tiffany Trump, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rudy Giuliani, Enrique Tarrio, George Papadopoulos, Jack Posobiec and Roger Stone. Politico reporter, Kyle Cheney, offered the complete list in a tweet.

Republican House Minority leader, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) from the onset picked Representatives Jim Banks (R-IN) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) to preside in the Committee. These Republicans, however, did not suit Pelosi and her dictatorial powers in the lower chamber blocked McCarthy’s choices. In their place, Pelosi handpicked Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), both, zealot, Never Trumpers.

This broad abuse of power, on the part of the Democrats, seeks, not to determine whether there was an organized subversive activity in the Capitol Building breach. That was determined emphatically not to be the case by the FBI’s comprehensive investigation. The arrests of over 570 alleged participants in the January 6th event, has yielded only 40 charges of related riot involvement and 170 charges for assaulting a police officer. Yet the accusations of “sedition” and “racketeering”, necessary legal charges to qualify for the falsified “insurrection” label that left-wing conspiracy theorists and Democratic operatives have been disseminating against conservatives, Trump supporters and Trump himself, has not been levied. Not even one.

The Democratic Party is violating all morally and institutionally permissible realms of republican governance. Its persistence in pursuing any avenue possible to legally impede conservatives from public life, despite the determinations made by the nation’s top law enforcement agency and the Department of Justice, is pure political persecution. These are things that happen in authoritarian regimes. Now they are occurring in Biden/Harris’ America.
