There’s gonna be some tough questions asked if the 6 show up to testify. They’re going to ask them questions that the Committee already knows the answers to. I am hoping that those six Aholes lie under oath. That would be sweet.

Interesting to see if anything comes of this. There's been rumors for awhile now a few different Rs led groups on tours of the Capitol prior to Jan 6.

Former GOP VP Dick Cheney takes shot at Trump and calls Jan 6th an attempt by a POTUS to unravel the constitutional republic

Well said.

“This sacred obligation to defend the peaceful transfer of power has been honored by every American president except one,” Cheney said. “The question for every one of us is in this time of testing, will we do our duty, will we defend our constitution, will we stand for truth, will we put duty to our oath above partisan politics?
“Or will we look away from danger, ignore the threat, embrace the lies and enable the liar?” Cheney continued. “As we face a threat we have never faced before — a former president attempting to unravel our constitutional republic — at this moment we must all summon the courage to stand against that.”

Thomas Hale-Cusanelli, an alleged Nazi sympathizer and Army reservist who prior to his arrest was working as a private contractor who lived on the base with security clearance at the Naval Weapons Station in New Jersey, was found guilty on five charges ranging from obstruction to disorderly conduct in the Capitol riot case.
The jury in this case, however, did not see images of Hale-Cusanelli impersonating an Adolf Hitler-style mustache. However, they were shown video, audio and social media images, as well as text messages involving his actions on and before the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
In those text messages, which were dated as early as October 2020 and were read out loud by government witnesses, Hale-Cusanelli held several conversations about election rigging. The texts also show he had used several homophobic, racist, anti-Black, and anti-Semitic terms. He would later testify in court that he was half-Jewish and Puerto Rican. Within those same text messages, Hale-Cusanelli used derogatory language regarding Vice President Kamala Harris writing: "this [N-word] got votes magically," and wrote about getting the “civil war started already.”

Father and son sentenced for charging police at US Capitol riot
Daryl Johnson and his son Daniel pleaded guilty to the felony of civil disorder in January.
Wednesday, Judge Dabney Friedrich said the case was "more egregious than most of the January 6 cases I've sentenced to date." The two men, Friedrich said, put police officers at extreme risk, both in pushing against the officers and allowing the rioters to breach the building.

Daryl Johnson was sentenced to one month in jail as well as $4,000 in fines. Daniel Johnson, who has a criminal history and was the first of the two to enter the Capitol, was sentenced to four months behind bars and ordered to pay $2,000 for damage done to the building during the riot.
"Mark my words Yesterday will be the beginning of the revolution," Daryl Johnson wrote on social media the day after the riot, according to court documents, suggesting there could be "hangings on the front lawn of the capital."
On January 6, Daniel Johnson told someone on Snapchat that he "was trying to find a way into the chamber" while inside the Capitol. Congress was working to certify the Electoral College votes, a process the mob stopped until lawmakers were able to reconvene that evening.
The entrance that the two helped clear, prosecutors said, was used by a large mob to breach the Capitol including a group from the right-wing militia organization the Oath Keepers, several members of which face seditious conspiracy charges for their actions around that day.

During the sentencing, Daryl Johnson said he was in an "emotional state" on January 6, 2021, after his businesses were almost shutdown during the pandemic. "Even being there was a huge mistake," he said of being in Washington that day.
Daniel Johnson told the judge that his "actions that day are not excusable," adding that while he has worked hard his whole life, "one day I compromised everything."
