Good! All the pieces have FINALLY clicked into place. He can, in a sane world, be imprisoned for life! Thank you again for shifting through all that was said for the bones, Professor Reich. Know that we appreciate you.

Prof. Reich, thank you for the excellent work you have done in putting all the pieces together of the entire public hearing proceedings so far. The J6 committee has really done a great job in bringing all the threads together to make the case for criminal proceedings against the ex president.

I was pleased that Josh Hawley was revealed for the coward he is.

It has all been proven! I do not understand the disbelievers. Are they ignorant? Stubborn? I just don’t get it!

A perfect summation. I think the most moving testimony tonight was Adam Kinziger's closing statement, it moved me to tears. I know he's a Republican but I'm heartbroken we have lost this young man's insight into right and wrong. The possibility of losing Liz Cheney in next month's Wyoming primary would also be a great loss. We need to do everything in our power to prevent even one trumpster from being re-elected, but especially that dips@#t Kevin McCarthy. We need some REAL Republican's to keep us honest, and I'm not dumb enough to think that any Democrat is perfect (I wish Manchin would fall down a coal shaft) - but wouldn't it be wonderful to have both houses of Congress full of dedicated, honest Americans for a change.

And he needs to go to jail for a very long time. Honestly jail is too good for him.

What he has done to this country is beyond despicable. He should be drawn and quartered!

As the child of a narcissistic personality disorder mother, everything Trump did made sense. He had given himself to this nation to be president at great sacrifice and they have had the audacity to reject him. How dare they. “I will get my minions to steal it back for me.” They never loose. They have to choose to leave under flying colors. They can’t help themselves. This is who they are. Ask Mary Trump.

Trump not only needs to be put away, he must be put away from public view and exposure, because that is his trip: celebrity and recognition. He has no inner validity, but seeks it from outside. Daddy stripped away whatever little may have been there. Look at me, Daddy, please look at me. Shut up kid. Here, go buy something, a college education or anything to get you out of my hair. That's how little Donnie was raised. And this apple didn't fall far from the tree. He needs to be utterly ignored by the press and people. This will be his most apt and fitting fate.

Yes. And he is continuing in his actions, to this very moment.

I clicked on "like", but I am so not liking all and any of this. If our government is unwilling to prosecute --- I have no hope left for my children and grandchildren, or great-grandchildren I hoped to live long enough to see. I never, ever, ever, in my life thought I'd say I admire a Cheney (I picketed her father more than once). But....... amazingly..... I find myself admiring Liz Cheney infinitely more than any other Republican right now. She is fighting for the existence of our democracy.

Now it's up to the "guts" of "the majority" of our justice system -- which has already in so many ways proven it's incredible ineptitude.
