A variety of people were involved in the breech of the capitol on January 6th of 2021. Some people at first claimed the people involved were part of "antifa", a name given to unorganized people who are against facism but who have sometimes committed acts of violence against property amidst otherwise peaceful protests. But no one in authority has identified any of the people in that way who were involved in the breech of the capitol building. However, some of the people involved in the breech of the capitol building have been identified as known white supremacists.
Another thing some people claimed was that the protests were like the protests of 2020. But the actual breech of the capitol building definitely was not. Those who stormed the capitol building, the place of our national government, did not just walk in, as we first heard. They battered, and climbed, and forced their way in, like an enemy invading a fortress of a foreign country.
Some of the invaders called for the hanging of Vice President Pence. Some of them expressed anger when they could not find congress members, who had fled or hidden. Some of them battered police officers, one of whom died.
Some of the people involved said that President Trump had sent them; that's how they saw it. While most Republican lawmakers, a week later, were not in favor of impeachment, many of them stated, along with the Democrats, that Trump had incited the mob.
Many protesters had come because they believed the election was not valid. But this election was not fraught with fraud according to the laws and judicial system of our country. Wherever accusations were made or trials were brought forth, they were addressed. There were recounts and investigations. No court of law, no recount, no governors or state election officers, even among those who were Republican like Trump, found any substantial fraud. They found no fraud or errors that would even begin to change the results in any state.
The Supreme Court, with many of its judges appointed by Republicans, and several appointed by Trump, would not hear a case that the State of Texas had brought against several states where President-elect Biden had won the election. The Supreme Court didn't find the arguments which were being brought against those states to even be within the jurisdiction of a court.
Here, in this country, elections are subject to the rule of law. We have every reason to rest assured that this was a valid election.
