I read in a news-feed that some of Trump's insider supporters were seen on Tuesday, leading several small groups of people on "tours" of the areas in the White House that were subsequently broken into on Wednesday. ...

Did you mean prior to the Capital was assaulted?  Or did you actually read that the White House was assaulted?  Either way, this seems a far fetched claim, perhaps you would provide a source?

Rep. Tim Ryan: Probe Underway On Whether Members Gave Capitol Tours To Rioters

Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, says an investigation is underway looking at "potentially members of Congress" who gave tours to pro-Trump rioters prior to the insurrection last week on the U.S. Capitol.

"All of that is being reviewed, both people on the campus who were here and behavior before and after, a lot of videos floating around out there," Ryan told NPR's Michel Martin during NPR's special coverage of the House impeachment vote.

"That's all going to be considered, including anybody that may have been on the inside, including members of Congress."...

I searched for the original feed that I'd read that in, but couldn't locate it. I do know there is now a story via National Review about folks denying there were any recon-tours.

Anyway, I just thought it was another interesting twist in an already twisted scramble of events. Mostly I remark about things I read, but I'm really not into being political to the degree a lot of posters are here, so I don't actually pay attention much to sources, not thinking I'd be requested to cite them. I also don't debate.

And by the way:  ? Thank you herring!!!!

Maybe that's why the mob seemed to know where they were going. It seems there was more to urging that "protest" on, than just the words spoken by POTUS  to the crowd the night before. There is a Congresswoman who has reported them (the insiders/politicians who led these 'tours') to the FBI for being part of the plan to overtake the White House. Ought to be interesting to see this played out. 

There are some elected officials that gave unauthorized tours are they being investigated as part of domestic terrorism? What did they know? Are they being investigated? If yes, why is Congress not kicking them and charging them with treason?

These people ruined their life and family lives for Trump.

Any member of the military that took part in domestic terrorism should lose all military benefits.

?<this is supposed to be my brain being blown by this/these whole thing(s). 

Washington DC is kind of like an intestine excessively plagued by diverticulosis, dense with numerous diverticula(sp?) ... every curve or direction change has another sinkhole to step in, trip over, or at which to pause in shock to find out yet another piece of the great puzzle that will horribly fit into place. EGADS!

I have to take it in small doses.

How can you compare D.C to "diverticulosis"?  People actually live and work in the capital. It is not considered a state, people live there like in any other state in the United States of America. In my opinion, D.C should be a state. January 6th, 2020 was nothing, but terrorism that our federal government needs to investigate and charge every person with a charge of treason.  

What is " EGADS!"?

"Egads!" is a mild oath, like "Good Grief!" and not in much use anymore. I guess by comparing Washington to diverticulitis, I meant the ins and outs and overt or hidden agendas all around in politics; as in every time you think you know what's going on, you find out (often rudely) that something else entirely is taking place. To me, it's as irritating as any "itis" can be.

Anyway, I'm not practiced in seriously talking politics, the tug-of-war (just an expression) regarding arguments, metaphors and semantics of politics, so I am recusing myself from the thread.

I've given up trying to figure them out and their conspiracy theories and have had many discussions about it.

They are beginning to turn on him as they continue to not accept the reality that he lost the election.

They accosted Graham in airport calling him a traitor.

They have become unhinged based on what I'm seeing from the Capitol riots and they are dangerous on a whole new level.

If you count the legal votes Trump won. Biden won by ballots, legal and illegal.

Legal votes? All states certified their vote totals, therefore they are legal. And it appears the guy who used to be president may have illegally tried to influence election outcomes.
