Most of the people arrested for the Capitol protest have not been identifiable Trump supporters, and some have been part of the certified opposition. From Monica Showalter at americanthinker.com:
When the Capitol riots happened on Jan. 6, the blame of President Trump was all over.
Supposedly, he was the instigator. Supposedly, he’d egged the rioters on. The tape of his urging his supporters to stay strong and fight was Exhibit A in the press, and with no skepticism whatsoever, House speaker Nancy Pelosi declared Trump guilty and rushed a crazily hasty second impeachment just days before Trump’s exit. She declared that it was all about holding Trump “accountable,” and she added that her explicit aim at the uselessly late date was to prevent him from ever running from public office again.
Never mind what the voters might want. In more ways than one, in Pelosi’s addled mind, their votes don’t count.
The press also rushed to judgment — even the Wall Street Journal’s editorial writers, claiming that Trump’s political capital and credibility was now gone and he’d never run for president again.
But as news of the arrests comes out, showing who these branded Trump so-called supporters are, the conventional argument is starting to splinter apart.
The arrests made in the riots case are starting to show the kind of people who like to riot, which is to say extreme leftists.
