Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media allies have laid the blame for last month’s deadly Capitol Hill riot on President Donald Trump, as well as essentially all conservative Republicans.
However, new information has come out regarding those who were arrested in the Jan. 6 riot, and it reveals that members of the Democratic Party also took part in the violence.
Breitbart reporter Hannah Bleau cited a report on Monday from CNN that looked at details of the more than 180 people who were arrested and concluded that “a handful were registered as Democrats.”
There were also eight individuals taken into custody who didn’t vote for Trump in the election — in fact, they didn’t cast a ballot for any candidate, according to the report.
Among them was “a 65-year-old Georgia man who, according to government documents, was found in his van with a fully-loaded pistol and ammunition.”
Another alleged non-voter was “a Louisiana man who publicly bragged about spending nearly two hours inside the Capitol after attending Trump’s ‘Stop the Steal’ rally.”
There was also “a 21-year-old woman from Missouri who prosecutors say shared a video on Snapchat that showed her parading around with a piece of a wooden sign from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office.”
Still, that information has not prevented high-profile Democrats from using the actions of a few hundred at the Capitol to smear the entire GOP and its supporters.
Sanders: “Authoritarian party”
Those attempting to condemn Republicans include former presidential candidate and long-time Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who on Monday tweeted, “The Republican Party has a fundamental decision to make.”
“Will it be a conservative party functioning within a democratic society? he continued. “Or will it be an authoritarian party built upon the Big Lie, conspiracy theories and violence? It cannot be both.”
Nor has it prevented Sanders and his colleagues from pushing ahead with subjecting the former president to an impeachment trial despite the fact that he has already left office.
United States Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has refused to preside over the trial, Fox News reported. Some 45 Republicans also voted in favor of a point of order raised by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) that condemned the proceedings as unconstitutional.
