Some of the rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol last week wore gear that makes it difficult to identify them, but investigators have zeroed in on a number of clues. John Scott-Railton, a senior researcher at the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk School, joins CBSN to discuss the techniques that helped ID suspects who are now facing charges.

Have you identified a single Rioter in Portland OR Seattle? Have you identified a single individual, that ran ballots through the Dominion processing machine three or four times? Have you identified, the laws of the states used to circumnavigate the Constitution creating an illegitimate election? No? I wouldn't expect the Communist media to do any of that. But how quickly you were to join the Chinese Communist party and Implement their shaming tactics of American citizens. Shame on you. You're pathetic.

Just like the girl who crawled through the door and got shot and killed nobody else tried to come through that door after that officer shot her so I think if they would have just started shooting at the first place not too many people would have bothered trying to come in their life is more important than getting in that building Sorry if you feel any different you cant change an election by storming a building because china already paid Biden to win a billion he says on 700 wlw am radio

Big Tech, Fake News, is the threat to Principles of Freedom and Constitution, it is what the congress and senate should be prosecuting; the attack in Congress is an offshoot of the breakdown of law and order in Government. 4 years of Democrat and GOP rhino’s, insurrection towards the administration of President Donald Trump; (Russia collusion, and so many sabotage actions acted in synergy with FBI, DOJ, and Big Tech). Congress and Senate for decades if not centuries have been career politicians; a strong possibility for Trump an outsider to win threatened them. Therefore, when Trump ran they knew he was going to win so they hatch a plot to destroy and sabotage his leaderships locally and internationally thinking they have to teach the public a lesson to discourage anyone else, so no ordinary private citizen (outsider) dare ever again think of running. The swamp kingdom (Senate and Congress) keeps acting forcefully arrogant, having the power in their hands, misuse it unconstitutionally and illegally to do their corrupt practices thinking they can fool the people all of the time; people sees their duplicity in the anger they direct toward President Donald Trump. Democrats and Rhinos conspired, stage and fabricated the fake Russia Collusion, caging Minors at the border, “there are good people in both sides”, Impeachment 1, impeachment 2, etc. As long as the swamp are in denial and do not realize it is over and admits their duplicity’ the fake rage anger they direct toward President Donald Trump; a start would be to withdraw the fake impeachment. +++++++ US citizens will be on the receiving end of international contempt and subdued into bad disadvantaged deals from Foreign Governments; the people see this, which is why they are revolting and acting to save their country from their’ own Government’s and Politicians criminal and disloyalty.

The agent provocateurs that broke into the Capitol had anticipated a riot breaking out in the rear while they were inside. I know first-hand that pallets of bricks and propane bottles were dropped off around the grounds on the 5th. Those things had gone walkabout by the next morning when 4 busloads of those same agents provocateur led the charge into the building accompanied by a CNN reporter and an unknown number of actual Trump supporters. The body of those 4 busloads of left-wing agents was in the crowd outside looking for bricks. All are guilty. But where did the bricks come from? This is an established pattern of criminal behavior, no? Vegas Valley News says yes. I want to know who keeps leaving bricks and bombs at places like this.

I know that this is being investigated, but what can't be understood is why the guards were allowing the people to enter, it was on video, somebody gave them the orders to allow them to go in. Doors open, guards allowing them to enter, who were these guards which were doing this which were on video, shouldn't they be the first to be taken into custody and finding out who gave them orders to allow these people to enter. It was as if it all was a set up. Grab the guards and find out why they did what they did. Those doors should of been secured, isn't that what they get paid to do.

I just have a couple of questions: 1). Why wasn't there concerned about the rioters (Antifa and BLM) when they took over streets, burning business, harming cops plus trying to burn a government building with people inside and locked as the doors were locked? 2). Democrats yelling at Republicans ' this is all your fault'. To me, that is hate speech and sturring up the riots more. This riot was terrible and should not have happened. But, I believe, everyone should claim responsibility for this. The last 4 years have been brutal on Americans. People have said 'fighting speech', like drawing terrible pictures of President Trump, making a chopped off head of President Trump, calling Republicans, the most to President Trump terrible names and done, not only from the general public, but by high ranking officials, the media, and Hollywood. Now our freedom of speech is being taken away. I think if both sides would just calm down we could fix the problems that made our country great. We must fix this as other countries are being affected by our treatment of our country. Let us stop the divide, it hasn't helped anything, and let us get to work on fixing our country. I don't think you want Socialism. though it sounds good, who will pay for all the 'free stuff?' Taxpayers just like we pay for all thing government approves and wages for all government. I am not for or against anybody but am for the United States.

In speaking about the Oath these people took, they did swear to protect America against All Enemies Foreign and Domestic and our Founding Father's stated it was Americans responsibility to come against a Tyrannical Government. Unfortunately, I believe these people let their emotions get the better part of them after witnessing this last election and how only one side of the story was being reported by Main Stream Media and four years of our government not doing anything but spend their time and our tax dollars with all these congressional investigations. There are better ways to protest what you disagree with, but with the Censorship that has been taking place, and restricting their 1st Amendment Rights, what else can you expect.

All I know is that you have a hierarchy that has a lot of money in a lot of power at the government as we all know a business within itself and you have all this money and all this power and all this corruption because people are not perfect I mean no matter who you are there's always going to be you know there's always going to be those people who feel they can get away with something because of the position that they are in it's no better than the janitor who steals toilet paper from his employer it's no better than a secretary stealing stationary from her office it's just the way of the world and it's what people do and I always it's just a part of life anyways maybe they should change things maybe things should change all the way but of course nobody wants to do that but I've heard it be said that the children of the future and they will change things but more than likely not the people that want to bring about change generally we're the ones that are I put it this way the ones that are complaining about things well those are the ones that never are put in positions to make change. Then you have the ones who do put themselves in position to make change but they're taught by the old leaders how to do things and what to do so they're not interested in changing anything because they've been instructed on how to keep things the way they are. I think a lot of things need to be changed but I don't think sitting up talking about it I mean there on the news telling people what I don't care

Let me go ahead and explain this for the people that don't understand what's going on here because just as there's some people that know what's going on here there's many that don't. What's going on here is a scare campaign the reason I'm losing sleep they stormed the capital they want their ways enforced and made to be they want to do things to us this is all bulshit what they want to do is come out here and say yes they want to round to have next time with weapons I'm so this will allow them to enact laws that basically just change laws that's all it's doing this will say okay let's change the laws to wear if you try to overrun the capital and you're not successful life imprisonment death penalty whatever you know basically that's what it is they're trying to make it so nobody wants to ever do that again oh you know and I'm pretty sure there are things in place where these people will be punished and all that but the issue of it is it's just a way for them to make whatever changes they need to make a specially now that this is happened there will be more security there will be more Federal officers at the White House now that this has happened I'm sure now that this is happened they probably are going to put things in place oh definitely going to make a lot of changes a lot of changes to secure everything from security to Armed federal agents to everything I mean they're just but they're talking about it so that way they have that open hole to be able to make things different and they're going to make things different yes they're going to make it harder to ever do that again that's that's how America Works once something bad happens changes are then brought about to make it to where it's harder to do that again instead of you know doing what they should have did in the first place so that it could could not happen but like I said they'd wait until something happens now that people have stormed the capital now they're going to put laws in place that are severe you know and do what they need to do but ultimately who cares I mean it's a building like any other and what do you want from me

First of all it's not the biggest thing to happen in the country I mean okay a bunch of caucasians got upset storm the capitol this is nothing new white people have been doing this throughout history I mean after all that is their country why wouldn't they it's not the biggest thing to happen you have a government that has more money than they know what to do with that feels because of their money and power that they can do whatever they want and people are just tired of it I mean I understand that throughout history there's always been a ruling class there's always been a subservient class but the point of it is throughout history at certain time intervals there's a Clash that's just how it goes the hierarchy wants to change things put certain constraints on the people the people lash out this is history throughout time there's always been a ruling class there's always been a subservient underbelly which is the regular people and that's just how it is maybe we need a different system a different way of doing things then maybe we wouldn't have people over running things and you know maybe we don't need a group of people trying to tell other people what to do maybe we should change things in their entirety
