The person 2nd in line to the Presidency is still praising the coup leader

Just a reminder of how dangerous a situation we're in. We literally have a pro-insurrectionist traitor leading the House, with only Kamala Harris standing in the way of him getting the Presidency.

That's what happens when DoJ refuses to indict and prosecute the high level supporters of the insurrection.

Usually when people commit crimes, they're arrested. Not allowed to be elected Speaker.

Usually there's a news conference about such developments. Last I checked, Jack Smith is still employed.

they have refused for two years to indict Trump et al, only going after the lowest level foot soldiers.

p.s. there was no announcement- they just didnt do it.

Our Dems are going to have to be vigilant and ready at a moment's notice to fight them.

Dangerous times ahead.

DOJ DOES NOT INDICT. Not for felonies.

Only grand juries can do that.

It helps to understand the process before assigning blame, willy-nilly.
