Letters from a D.C. Jail

American Greatness

This week, five Republican senators sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland regarding his office’s handling of January 6 protesters. The letter revealed the senators are aware that several Capitol defendants charged with mostly nonviolent crimes are being held in solitary confinement conditions in a D.C. jail used exclusively to house Capitol detainees.

Joe Biden’s Justice Department routinely requests—and partisan Beltway federal judges routinely approve—pre-trial detention for Americans arrested for their involvement in the January 6 protest. This includes everyone from an 18-year-old high school senior from Georgia to a 70-year-old Virginia farmer with no criminal record.

It is important to emphasize that the accused have languished for months in prison before their trials even have begun. Judges are keeping defendants behind bars largely based on clips selectively produced by the government from a trove of video footage under protective seal and unavailable to defense lawyers and the public—and for the thoughtcrime of doubting the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election.

 

The rule of law for anyone involved in the events of January 6 has been flipped on its head by the U.S. justice system; defendants are presumed guilty before proven innocent. The right to a speedy trial and the right to participate in one’s own defense are ignored, as are other constitutional protections.:snip:

There's a good reason None of these people have been brought to trial. Because when it is the Farce of this will be revealed. Held without bail? What is this The Manson Family or something!

Jan. 6 video mystery: Senator asks about officer 'gesturing toward' doors as intruders file past

The top Republican on one of the Senate's most powerful investigative panels says video footage from the Jan. 6 riot shows more than 300 people gained unauthorized access to the Capitol through a single doorway, and he is demanding answers from the police officers who were nearby

 

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), the top Republican on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, sent a letter late Thursday to U.S. Capitol Police Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman divulging the findings of his security footage review and asking whether the officers present during the episode have been interviewed.

"Have these officers filed detailed reports of this incident?" Johnson asked. "Has USCP conducted transcribed interviews with them? If so, I request copies of these reports and transcribed interviews. If not, I respectfully ask for the opportunity to interview these officers." 

The  Wisconsin lawmaker said the footage showed approximately 309 unauthorized people flowing into the Capitol building through the upper west terrace doors during a 14-minute span on Jan. 6. Since USCP estimated that at least 800 unauthorized people breached the building that day, this entry would be tied to as much as 38% of that total figure, he noted. :snip:

What we see here are questions, that give us the answer Why the trial(s) have been put off.

Will Ashli Babbitt’s Family Get Any Kind of Justice?

 

After the U.S. Attorney’s office announced they would not seek justice for the killing of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot to death by a police officer at the United States Capitol building during the Jan. 6 riot, the family of the victim is taking legal action against the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD). In a recent filing, attorneys representing the family are demanding the records of the officer who killed her.:snip:
