It's about time.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is expanding its probe of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack to include the events leading up to the preceding rally, and the wider conspiracies that fueled the violence, people familiar with the issue told The Washington Post.

Before supporters of former President Trump attacked the Capitol, many participated in a rally that had multiple speakers, including Trump himself.

Sources told the Post the DOJ is now looking to the planning of the rally and the conspiracy theories that surrounded the event.

The rally was based around the false claims that Trump won the 2020 presidential election and that election fraud was the reason President Biden won.

The DOJ has begun issuing subpoenas to investigate the funding and planning of the event as well as who was involved. People familiar with the issue told the Post the subpoenas were issued against those in Trump’s circle but would not say what they requested or who received them.

The House dog and pony show is running out of steam...so they are shifting it over to the DOJ.

Doesn't matter. It's all about the narrative, anyway. Just another opportunity for the media to say, "false claims".

So the DOJ is now looking into conspiracy theories.

They heretofore have not found what they thought they would find.

So they are investigating political protests...

And the Democrats like to think they are ones defending democracy.

With the texts between Gini Thomas and Mark Meadows, I would not be surprised if suddenly Clarence decides to retire.

From the looks of all their rods, looks like they have all hooked a big one. Hopefully the DOJ is on that same path.

No one ever catches a big one without going on a fishing trip. That's how investigations work.

Should have happened months and moths ago. Garland is beginning to look like enemy action.

I would be shocked if he does. Roberts may push for it if and when there's a republican controlled Senate again though.

The house is investigating, it's up to the doj to bring charges, not the house.

Yep, the closer the midterms get the more steam this will gain. If DJT had faded into the sunset with no intention to stay involved in politics, this would have long passed.

Political protest? Is that what you tell yourself 1/6 was? I remember a time when thousands and thousands marched on washington during the vietnam war and not once did I see any group of people smash their way into the capitol demanding change. Those folks weren't defending democracy, they were trying to destroy it.

With a Republican not in the presidency that man is going to have to be carried out with handcuffs or on his back. He’s not going to retire.

Are you implying we should do nothing about 1/6?
Anyone that supports or sympathizes with or wants to downplay the attempted insurrection is going to say whatever they need to say to support, sympathize with or downplay the attempted insurrection.

It's all so transparent.

That isn't what the DOJ is expanding its probe into it.
They are expanding their probe into the rally itself.

Running out of steam?

It’s pretty obvious taht you’re trying to pass of trump nation wishful thinking as fact.

Ginny Thomas’ texts are what finally brought Justice into the investigation.

The inquiry is EXPANDING, contrary to your obvious misrepresentation.

It’s only a matter of time before the Committee locks up a few of the trump henchmen who are already under contempt citations for ignoring subpoenas. There’s no Bill Barr to run cover for them anymore.

And the conspiracy is so vast that it will be investigated and prosecuted for some time. It is so much bigger than Watergate ever was.

Actually, I expected Justice to wait till late Spring or Summer before they got involved.

The Committee will certainly be making extensive referrals to Justice and grand juries before the end of the year.

A kegger gone wrong.

Just a bunch of tourists looking to see that Capitol that day.

Well, you have to admit that most of these “patriots” had never been there before!
