At least Washington Post calls these nazis "extremist group":

 

"An indictment handed up by a federal grand jury in D.C. makes the Proud Boys the second far-right group whose members face the rare charge in the January 2021 Capitol attack, following the Oath Keepers and its founder Stewart Rhodes."

The Washington Post - Proud Boys leader Tarrio, 4 lieutenants charged with seditious conspiracy

 

06 June 2022

 


Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, the former longtime chairman of the extremist group Proud Boys, was indicted on a new federal charge of seditious conspiracy with four top lieutenants on Monday. ...

 

A 10-count superseding indictment returned Monday morning charges Tarrio [and his co-defendants] with “opposing the lawful transfer of presidential power by force” ...

 

Federal prosecutors previously leveled the historically rare charge of seditious conspiracy for the first time in the Jan. 6 attack against the founder and leader of the extremist group Oath Keepers, Stewart Rhodes, and 10 associates.

 



 

Hopefully Trump will not pardon them in 2024.  😶

Independent.co.uk: Trump peddles children’s book starring ‘King Donald’ to ‘every school in America’

...Kash Patel, who served as former President Donald Trump's Pentagon chief of staff, is the author of the new book, which retells the Trump-Russia election scandal using a thin coating of fairytale to make it palatable to children.

Brave Books, a conservative publishing company, is releasing the book, which is calls a "fantastical retelling of the terrible true story."

“A key player in uncovering one of our nation’s biggest injustices tells the whole story — for kids! Kash Patel ..... brings a fantastical retelling of Hillary’s horrible plot against Trump to the whole family,” the publisher said in a statement.

According to HuffPost, the book deals with "Hillary Queenton's" evil plot to accuse "King Donald" of working with the "Russionians" to cheat his way into power.

It's unclear why a king would have to win an election, but that's the plot nonetheless.

Mr Patel wrote himself into the story as a "wizard" who spends the duration of the book trying to prove that King Donald is the rightful ruler.

The plot is essentially just a retelling of the Steel Dossier story and the subsequent allegations that Mr Trump's campaign had been aided by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The book implies that Hillary Queenton wrote the dossier — compiled in real life by former MI-5 agent Christopher Steele — as a way to undermine King Donald's claim.

The NY Times - Fox News Doesn’t Plan to Carry Jan. 6 Hearings Live

 

08 June 2022

 


The group of lawmakers investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot would like as many Americans as possible to learn jarring and unknown details about the attack. 

 

So they decided to hold  a public hearing on Thursday during prime time, when many people are sitting in front of their TVs.

 

When the hearing begins at 8 p.m. Eastern, NBC will go into special report mode.

 

CBS will air a special called “Capitol Assault Hearings,” while ABC will run “Attack on the Capitol: The Investigation - An ABC News Special.”

 

MSNBC and CNN will have wall-to-wall coverage all night.

 

Fox News, the nation’s top cable news channel, has other plans.

 

Instead, the network will stick with its prime-time lineup of opinionated conservative hosts: Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham ...

 



 

Totally predictable!

Someone should sue them for false advertising. Fox NEWS is a lie if it doesn't report the biggest current news story.

The Guardian - Donald Trump to testify in New York investigation into his business practices

 

09 June 2022

 


Former president Donald Trump will testify under oath on 15 July in New York attorney general Letitia Jame’s investigation into his business practices, according to a court filing released Wednesday.

 

His daughter Ivanka Trump and son Donald Trump Jr will also testify.

 

News of next month’s testimony is the latest development in the three-year investigation into the former president’s dealings after he failed in an attempt last month to stop her investigation and ended up paying a $110,000 fine.*

 

James has said investigators have found “significant evidence” of wrongdoing in the investigation, which has honed in on whether the Trump Organization misstated the values of its real estate properties to obtain favorable loans and tax deductions. ...

 

EDIT

 

The Trumps are scheduled to testify beginning on 15 July, but they have until 13 June to ask New York state’s highest court, the court of appeals, to further delay any testimony. ...

 

* fines for contempt of court

Watch his nose grow when he is told he has to tell the truth!!! Truth will be a new concept to him. I hope the family testify without knowing what the others have said.

I have great hope that Trump, who is not the brightest worm in the cave, will trip himself up when testifying under oath. This is precisely why his aides worked so hard to shield him from that. He is ignorant, arrogant, vain, shallow. It shouldn't be difficult for a good interrogator to tie him in knots.

The January 6 hearings start today. Is any channel here showing them? Al Jazeera maybe? I don't have Sky, so CNN isn't an option for me 😕

The Washington Post - The 5-Minute Fix: What questions the Jan. 6 hearings need to answer

 

today  (6 questions - headings only)

 

 

     

  1. How much responsibility for the violence falls on Trump?

  2. How did Trump and his allies use the levers of government to try to keep him in power?

  3. How did so many people come to believe - and act on - Trump’s falsehoods about the election?

  4. What is the connection between actions by officials and the violence on Jan. 6?

  5. How was the Capitol so vulnerable to attack?

  6. What should be done to prevent similar attacks on democracy?

 



 

The Washington Post will have anchored coverage and analysis beginning Thursday night 7 p.m. Eastern on YouTube and at washingtonpost.com. C-SPAN will air all hearings in full.
