If people really believed this were an Insurrection and a Coup designed to overthrow the US Government, institute fascist rule and kidnap and murder AOC, they'd be out everyday protesting that those involved are getting no jail time and nobody has been charged with those crimes:
Judge Timothy J. Kelly sentenced Jordan Stotts to 24 months probation with conditions, per court docket.

I mean, if I really believed my country suffered an Insurrection, that huge numbers of seditious traitors came close to overthrowing the government and kidnapping my most beloved leaders, only to watch my party's DOJ and courts treat many of them like jaywalkers, I'd be *furious.

By the way: there is no law that makes non-violent trespassing a felony. So how are federal prosecutors managing to charge so many defendants they *admit used no violence* with felonies? Through this radically warped distortion of a 2002 Wall Street law: greenwald.substack.com/p/dem…

One of the problems with the 1/6 defendants is so many are impoverished and can't afford lawyers, and virtually no pro bono law firms or civil liberties groups will touch them (much the way not even ACLU would represent GITMO detainees for months). So DOJ barely has resistance.

As if that doesn't happen every single day in our court system.

They get free federal public defenders, who are very good. What are you taking about?

Didn't Trump say he would pay the legal costs, or was that just at the rally?

01/06 defendants fucked around and now they’re finding out. They still seem to be getting lenient sentences for trying to subvert Democracy.

But but Trump era was so prosperous for them. Years of poorness before King Trump.... Oh wait that didn't change under Trump? Work for aid (GOP policies) didn't help?

Not even trying veil this lie. More that 100 Jan 6 defendants are represented by “pro bono” defense attorneys from the DC defender’s office.

The vast majority have private counsel. The others have public defenders. Nice try, Glenn.

Only 16% appears to apply, based on stats. Is 16% most? It seems the inverse of your tweet is true. 84% can afford a private attorney. And don’t overlook that ALL afforded to travel to DC and commit these offenses. Appears that most have access to funding sources.

I went to school a L O N G time ago, but back then, 16% was not "most" of anything. #newmath ?
