    Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.

    A former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the probe said that '90 to 95 percent of these are one-off cases.'

    'Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages.'

    Scant evidence, you don't say? So the FBI essentially investigated themselves. Golly, all the video footage they still refuse to release must contain SCANT evidence that this was Trump's fault. Still didn't stop them for trying to impeach and remove him, fail.

    How many Americans or American allies have been killed during the collapse of Afghanistan? Where is the impeach Mr. Biden house committee? To give any credence to the endless false charges of evildoers is to allow evildoers to set the agenda.

    Are there supporting documents for this? If yes, what triggers them to release it now?

    If this report is accurate, this simply points to the attack being incited by the former President’s rally, not carefully organized by most of the participants beforehand.

    Since many attackers claimed — in the moment and after — that the President sent them, the President said they needed to “fight like hell” or they wouldn’t “have a country anymore” and Rudy Giuliani advocated “trial by combat,” this is actually bad news for Donald Trump’s defense that he did not incite the mob.

    I never cease to be amazed at the volume of bovine excrement the left will throw against a wall just to see if , IF, anything might stick!!!
    I also never cease to be amazed at the tenacity of some to stick with the left after seeing the complete attempted desecration of or country, and the volume of lies issuing from DC.:Frown
    Trump's tweets were awful, I agree, but he DID concern himself more for the country that his own political career!
    I'll take Trump's tweets any day over Biden's actions!!!!
    May God have mercy on our country; tho' we certainly have not given Him reason to do so!

    lol, Donald Trump doesn't need a defense, he's not on trial even for trespassing but the idea that finding no evidence that there was a plot therefore means Trump incited this is crazy.

    Still think it could have been like the Whitman kidnapping farce, where something like 14 of the 16 involved were FBI agents.
