America is refusing to stand for Wednesday’s Trump-supporting riot at the US Capitol.
The breach was a threat to national security. According to a news release from Democratic Rep. Jason Crow’s office, The Federal Government will take action against Trump’s rioters. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told the congressman that 25 domestic terrorism cases are currently open.
According to McCarthy, “long guns, Molotov cocktails, explosive devices, and zip ties were all recovered.” The terrorists deliberately took a stand against our nation in support of Trump. They used brute force to push through the Capitol’s barriers. The acts of treason claimed the lives of five US citizens. Crow openly addressed his concerns regarding “reports that the insurrection involved active duty and reserve military members.”
Donald Trump held little consideration or remorse for the aides and congressional allies inside the Capitol. Hours passed before the President released a video calling for an end to the riot, and even then, his advisors had to force him to do it. Wednesday’s heinous attacks did not stop Congress from counting President-elect Joe Biden’s winning votes. As we grow closer to Inauguration Day, Trump continues to brainwash his supporters with a false “stolen election” narrative.
“We see… chatter from these white supremacists, from these far-right extremists — they feel emboldened at this moment. We fully expect that this violence could get worse before it gets better,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League.
The DOD is monitoring terroristic threats made leading up to Inauguration Day. They are collaborating with local and federal law enforcement to protect national security. Crow made several requests to McCarthy, including; an expedited investigation, courts-martial against the domestic terrorist, and a full review of inauguration troops.
