What better way to start than by viewing Veteran War Correspondent Luke Mogelson 14 minute clip of the insurrection starting in the Senate chamber.

9. Troy shuts down town hall over threats related to police chief attending Trump rally

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. —
Threats of violence have shut down the Troy Town Hall following statements by the select board that the town's police chief did nothing wrong by attending the president's rally that turned into a violent riot last week.

Select Board Chairman Dick Thackston described the threats as salacious and unrealistic and the people making them deranged. He said the decision to close town hall was made out of an abundance of caution after threats were made, including to execute selectmen and staff.

"They seem to be broad-based attacks against the perception that in some way the town of Troy condones violence," Thackston said.

He said he believes the threats are coming from out of the area and are meant to intimidate the board to take action against police Chief David Ellis. Thackston said Ellis had a First Amendment right to attend the Trump rally on his own time. He said Ellis got on a bus and came home after the event and did not take part in the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol.

https://www.wmur.com/article/troy-shuts-down-town-hall-over-threats-related-to-police-chief-attending-trump-rally/35182932

Ellis was forthcoming about his attendance at the president’s political event to a reporter for New York magazine while he was in Washington. But he also denounced the Capitol break-in by other participants, telling the publication the move “was not going to solve a thing, and then to see the police get treated the way they were, it’s ridiculous.”

12. Trump campaign helped fund rally permit

Trump campaign says it “did not organize, operate or finance” the Jan. 6 rally.
Except multiple campaign officials are literally listed on the permit.
One was paid $20k/month.

14. ITV News identifies pro-Trump protester who stormed US Capitol

A woman who stormed the US Capitol last week wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with an alt-right slogan has been identified by ITV News as a 22-year-old care worker from Pennsylvania.

Riley Williams, who was one of a small number of women to have illegally entered the buildings during the Washington DC siege, attracted attention after she was filmed apparently directing rioters “up the stairs, up the stairs”.

In separate interviews, her mother and father rejected claims that she was giving orders to the rioters, insisting she was a peaceful protester who got lost in the crowd.

15. The Atlantic: Treat the Attack on the Capitol as Terrorism

Public officials from Vice President Mike Pence on down have sung a consistent refrain since a mob attacked the Capitol on January 6: Those involved should be prosecuted to the “fullest extent of the law.” For those implicated in the murder of the Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, the penalties are obviously severe. Murdering a federal official carries a life sentence and, depending on what is proven at trial, could carry the death penalty.

For the others who swarmed the Capitol, though, the standard penalties could be underwhelming. The federal statute most on point, which is often used against protesters who disrupt congressional hearings, carries a maximum six-month sentence. The government-property statute has been used when protests get violent, but under that law, those who vandalized the Capitol would also face, at most, ten years’ imprisonment. Even those who physically clashed with Capitol Police face a maximum punishment of only eight years, so long as they didn’t use a weapon.

Many of these punishments, well below the mandatory minimum someone would typically face in federal court for growing a small plot of marijuana, are out of step with the gravity of what transpired in Washington, D.C. Evidence is still coming in, but what we know shows that the attack on the Capitol was not a mere disruption of government business. It was a coordinated siege on the heart of our democracy.

The acting U.S. attorney general for D.C. has suggested that his office is exploring sedition charges. But if prosecutors are truly serious about punishing those who attacked the Capitol to the fullest extent of the law, they will treat the attack as an act of terrorism.
