(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- For months, Americans with no criminal record have been held in a DC jail, often in solitary confinement, for the “crime” of trespassing on the Capitol on January 6. The Democrats and the media smear them as “domestic terrorists” and “insurrectionists” while their guards physically and emotionally abuse them.
These political prisoners are languishing in jail even before the pre-trial hearings. They are denied bail despite most of them committing no violent crimes.
These Americans are facing far worse than any of those who burned cities to the ground, attacked federal buildings, and assaulted police during last summer’s endless Black Lives Matter rioting.
And for the most part, Republicans in Congress haven’t said a word about it.
Even former President Donald Trump won’t bring himself to speak out about the political prisoners being detained just miles from the White House.
But for a handful of dedicated journalists like American Greatness senior contributor Julie Kelly, the plight of the January 6 political prisoners would be unknown.
Finally, last week ten House Republicans sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland calling out the “inconsistent application of the law” between the January 6 defendants and those who rioted in cities last summer.
The ten Republicans are Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Andrew Clyde (R-GA), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Bob Good (R-VA), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jody Hice (R-GA), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Ralph Norman (R-SC), and W. Gregory Steube (R-FL).
The letter cites a Politico article which reported that the Biden Justice Department enacted policy and personnel changes that resulted in more lenient treatment of the Black Lives Matter rioters – including those charged with felonies. Instead of throwing the book at them, these rioters were given deferred resolution agreements that wiped their criminal records clean if they stayed out of trouble for a specific period of time.
Meanwhile, the January 6 detainees are being held without bail, kept in jail even before their pre-trial hearings, often kept in their cells for 23 hours a day or in solitary confinement. This despite the fact that none of those arrested have been charged with “insurrection” or “sedition” or “terrorism.”
The letter also cites reports that of the physical abuse by guards that these January 6 detainees have faced.
Last week, two of the Republicans on the letter, Congressmen Louie Gohmert and Andy Biggs discussed the issue with One American News reporter John Hines.
