Friday morning, Reuters released an investigative report into the violence in the Capitol on January 6th, and it obliterates all the tearful tall tales from the left about the giant Trump-led conspiracy to overthrow the government. It was more like the story of the dog that chased cars and didn’t know what to do with one when he caught it.

According to officials quoted in the Reuters report, the FBI “at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump." It has also “so far found no evidence that [Trump] or people directly around him were involved in organizing the violence.” Up to 95% of the cases are “one-offs” (i.e., someone saw the door open and wandered in.) Maybe five percent involved organized groups like Oath Keepers or Proud Boys who allegedly had planned to break in, but “they found no evidence that the groups had serious plans about what to do if they made it inside.”

This is why most of the charges have been things like “conspiracy” instead of really serious counts like racketeering or insurrection: because there’s no evidence of any broader plot than that they talked in advance about their plans to trespass.

It kind of throws a monkey wrench into all the Democrat histrionics about it being the biggest threat to the federal government since the Civil War. Say what you will about the over-matched and out-gunned Confederates, but at least they didn’t show up at Gettysburg unarmed, wearing T-shirts and Viking helmets and shooting nothing but selfies.

    It doesn't much matter what you say. Most people will never hear/read it because the gatekeepers won't let it pass. Of the few that do hear/read it many will dismiss it out of hand. We just need to keep telling the Truth and hope that someone who hears it will understand and react accordingly.

    The FBI is finally telling the truth. I believe they were instrumental in calling it an insurrection. I think they, and other left groups, were plotting this questionable "insurrection". The truth will finally be known that it was NOT planned by the Trump supporters.

    Where's the video of the Capital Hill Police killing an unarmed girl and why isn't that officer being charged with murder? Was she less of a human being than George Floyd because she's white? Did Pelosi orchestrate this with antifa?
    Cover up, cover up, cover up!!!!

    I am so sick and tired of Pelosi and gang and their constant attacks on all things American during their grab for power. The stupidity and guile of them is traitorous and disgusting. They hated Trump and conservatives, due to their fear that Pres. Trump would finally get through their flimsy veneer of psuedo-honesty and that these Dem supporters would abandon them.

    And so does this investigative report just get buried, with no news coverage. No consequences..

    Ironic how this "news" comes out on Friday in the midst of a national catastrophe!

    In normal society people recognize that choices have consequences. Pelosi and other radical socialist do no recognize that marginalized conservatives were reacting to their refusal to hear them. It was NOT Trump. It was, and continues to be the radical lefts abuse of American Patriots who do not buy their crap. We are labeled terrorist while the real terrorist are lauded as heros. I am afraid of what the next few years will do to this country.

    I truly enjoy your articles Governor Huckabee. Thanks for all you do. I'm disheartened to sit here and watch the southern border being stormed by illegals, from who knows where. Covid is rampaging all over the country and the illegals are being allowed in with no testing. Or with a limited number being tested. More important are these people terrorists?? Who are they?? We do not know. Now we are allowing some folks to come in from Afghanistan and are they vetted ?? Are the Taliban actually sneaking in with other refugees ??? How do we correct the illegal election that Biden won?? Do you have any ideas on that??

    Thanks again Governor for all you do.
    I'm a Senior citizen and a veteran and want a safe country more than anything. I also want a country my grandkids will be able to live in without paying taxes to the government for non existent bridges to nowhere.

    So, now that the entire insurrection narrative has been blown up are they going to start letting the political prisoners out of jail? No one should be locked up for months for trespassing when murderers are released within hours.
