'If in fact it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to this insurrection, if they aided and abetted the crime, there may have to be actions taken beyond the Congress in terms of prosecutions,' Pelosi said

Pelosi, in particular, singled out a participant in the violence who was wearing a sweatshirt that read "Camp Auschwitz," a reference to the concentration camp at which more than 1 million Jews were systematically killed during the Holocaust. Pelosi described a congressional delegation visit to some of the most notorious Nazi concentration camps that she described as a "transformative" moment for lawmakers who were overwhelmed by the "dehumanizing of people" that occurred there.

"To see this punk with that shirt on and his anti-Semitism that he has bragged about to be part of a white supremacist raid on this capitol requires us to have an after-action review," Pelosi said.Authorities arrested the man seen wearing the sweatshirt, 56-year-old Robert Keith Packer of Newport News, VA., and charged him with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds as well as unlawfully entering a restricted building.

It's only a matter of time before the GOP leaves a giant stain on the annals of American history - again. This woman is a Nazi. She leads the third Reich in government propaganda , she will have you removed if you go against her just as the Nazis had done. She has the Military protect her just as the Nazis had done .

Every Democrat who objected to Trumps election in 2016, voiced their objections, claimed the Russians rigged the election, should be tried for undermining our democracy! Yyyaaasssss big SIS Nancy. Give them the rod of correction and the full extent of the LAW!! I’m glad she has found a purpose in her otherwise pointless vindictive life.

The consequence when delivered should read from the steps of the Capitol loudly and clearly stating each part of the constitution they violated that they are being punished for so as to provide a badly needed civics lesson for those mistaking treason for patriotism. Trump forever. What about the involvement of Members of Congress in the last 4 years of Russia Colluding, the Steele Dossier, and the unmitigated LIES and FAKE IMPEACHMENT CHARGES? DO WE GET ANY PROSECUTIONS FOR THOSE ACTIONS BY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS? CriminalCongress

She should be the first to go to jail. 🇺🇸 14th Amendment NO PERSON shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress .. President and Vice President .. shall have ENGAGED in INSURRECTION and REBELLION .. or GIVEN AID or COMFORT to the ENEMIES thereof. Congress may by Vote of 2/3 of each House REMOVE such DISABILITY.

May? If they participated, use the gallows their terrorist compatriots brought to the capitol. CarrieLynnEMT TraitorTrump Translation: Ass will be grass! I don’t even know who the bad guys are anymore. I just think we need to declassify everything. The people need to know what’s happening to their country.

CarrieLynnEMT If = when. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Someone is going to jail! Absolutely should ! There is zero evidence this happened btw as long as there's no statute on sedition and insurrection, justice will be done. I fear she wouldn't have said this out loud if she didn't have info it's true.
