Now, the events from January 6th still haunt us to this day.
As a joint session of Congress convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden’s election win, lawmakers were forced to shelter in place and evacuate as pro-Trump rioters broke into the U.S Capitol Building.
Scenes were truly shocking.
Breaking windows, doors, and furniture along with chants of “stop the steal!”
The rioters quickly went viral.
And photos showing them looting objects, such as the lectern of U.S. Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, quickly started circulating online.
Things went from bad to worse.
And the world watched on, transfixed, as more and more rioters continued to spill into the Capitol and clash with police.
Even Trump got involved.
The former president was repeatedly urged to appear on national television to order his supporters to stand down.
He instead issued a series of half-hearted tweets…
Where he reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement was “on our side,” and to “remain peaceful.”
Trump’s behavior resulted in him being banned from all social media platforms…
And, as control was regained in the Capitol and the cleanup began, an impeachment investigation was launched into the former president for the role he played in the riots.
Of course, the aftermath of the event has been nothing short of unbelievable…
And, as the months have trickled by, more and more rioters have been named, shamed, and reprimanded for their actions.
Some of those waiting to be reprimanded for their actions are currently being held in Washington, D.C. jail.
And it seems they aren’t happy to be there as many have complained about the conditions in which they are being held.
But, their complaints appear to be pointless…
As a judge has something to say about the complaints and it’s not what they wanted to hear…
As per CNN, several Capitol Riot defendants have complained about conditions in the Washington jail.
They said that they are being kept in unsanitary or unsafe conditions.
However, Judge Emmet Sullivan has pushed back on those claims.
In a case on Wednesday, Sullivan accepted that there are some issues at the jail in relation to the defendants’ situations.
The outlet reports that he noted he was aware of issues in relation to defendants accessing evidence in their cases to prepare for trial.
However, he hit back at claims about the conditions.
“They’re running a jail, not a hotel. Some people want hotel services,” Sullivan said.
Too right. I mean, you should have thought about that before you went and raided a government building.
