I hope the committee answers this question.

Where in the hell was DHS and FBI leading up to Jan 6th.

The attack on our capital was a massive national security failure. A lot of the planning for the coup attempt was done out in the open, online. Websites for Trump, far right sites, extremist sites, were full of information about what people were planning.

DHS, the FBI must monitor these sites. Did they think people were just kidding?

3. I thought the same thing at the time. Massive national security failure.

Where were all the intelligence services beforehand?

5. They were gutted and hampered from helping...

Or protecting -45's perceived enemies. They had the pentagon standing down for heaven's sake. It was obvious that replacing all the upper echelon in the military and DHS secured a lengthy attack.

6. Yes at the time of the replacements we wondered why.

It was all carefully planned far ahead of time.

11. I wasn't wondering why...

It was quite clear to many of us at the time. I'm just wondering when it will be told that they had been actively planning a coup from the start or if it was something they thought of in the last 18 months.

In any case, it was a coup, they thought they had all their bases covered but, fortunately in our big government, there were too many fail-safes for them to overcome, this time.

But then, I'm kind of a policy wonk/politics addict so I probably watch at a deeper level then most people do.

7. Good questions. It goes along with the long delay...

of getting Nat'l Guard authorization from the trump replacements in the Defense Dept.

Seem a whole lot of people were complicit.

If they all get away with this with no legal consequences, do we even have a justice system anymore, or a nation of laws.

8. So many people across the gov't involved. Maybe one reason DOJ is stalling.

We would find out the widespread corruption in our government.

4. Purposely held back from taking action.

Review the events leading up to 1.6.21. It was pretty obvious that co-conspirators were place in key positions of authority so that the attackers had either backing or no opposition.

It's worth looking into, too much to explain otherwise.

13. And there's that...

Along with other players, he's the one who bothers me most right now. I wonder if the AG is having issues working with Wray in investigating the whole mess.

I think Wray should be replaced.

15. 2 of the coup planners,

John Eastman and Ted Cruz are both members of the federalist Society.

Sheldon Whitehouse has been working to pass the Disclose Act which would reveal who is funding organizations like the Federalist Society. Yes we in America have our own oligarchs.

16. I'm hoping...

That when the dust settles we end up with a democracy. There are so many corrupt groups trying to destroy us, I am wondering if we can hold up.
