Herald needs more facts about Jan. 6

After reading the Herald’s panting, emotional editorial (Jan. 5) about the “insurrection” last Jan. 6, I felt like I had to offer an invitation for the Herald staff to hold off on their accusations until a bit more is known about the details. The fact that it is taking so long for all the details to be released to the public is a bad sign: It reminds me of when the Democrats did every maneuver they could find to resist releasing the news that the “Trump-Russia collusion” came from a document the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton paid for. Let’s wait and see and hope that the truth will out.

It’s worth emphasizing what the Herald deliberately left out: not a single person has been charged with insurrection, sedition or treason in connection with the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. And Department of Justice prosecutors have already been caught and admonished for trying to hide exculpatory evidence.

In terms of the last election, there is no final outcome that is as clear as the Herald asserts. Joe Biden somehow got more votes than any president in history, and at the same time, there was a coordinated campaign by the Democrats to both legally and illegally have all verification of mail-in ballots removed. As many people have said, the questions about the last election will never be answered until the Democrats stop blocking a national audit. If there was nothing wrong, why the loud obstruction to every audit that has been started?
