An unarmed overthrow of the government?



Since then we've learned there were some guns hidden, and explosives, if they got control of the building.

You are absolutely correct Rancid. You cannot be a supporter of January 6 and a supporter of the U.S. Constitution at the same time. January 6 was against the principles of the Constitution and the Constitution itself. Trump is a criminal too that should be facing criminal charges for his role in inciting January 6 and attacking the Constitution and the principles of freedom and democracy it stands for. Those who attacked the capital on January 6 sought to install Trump as a dictator and to overthrow a freely elected government that was elected in a completely fair election and chose to attack the rule of law.
