Below is a letter from Nathan DeGrave. He is just ONE of the political prisoners from the January 6 Protest. Note THIS IS NOVEMBER. Much of my commentary here is based on Mr. DeGrave’s letter. However his is not the only report from prisoners. They all describe the same conditions. I urge you to read it for yourself.
Also note, the government has no case. Period. Anyone who cares to dispute this is welcome to explain to me exactly why these citizens have yet to come to trial.
During the past couple of days I’ve kept an eye on Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial. He is accused of murder during a “peaceful protest” in Kenosha, WI on August 25, 2020. As an accused murderer, he was arraigned, bail was set and he has been free since his trial. While I am confident a fair trial will return a verdict of not guilty as his actions were clearly in self-defense, it seems to me how he was treated compared to those in “DC’s Gitmo” is beyond any reasonable explanation. For the record, Rittenhouse was treated how a citizen should be treated.
The treatment in DC is beyond horrible. They are beaten, starved, denied medical treatment, harassed, forced to live in squalor, forced to wear masks, stripped of proper legal counsel, and refused visitations. I am sure I’ve missed some things, but isn’t this enough? Mr. DeGrave states in his letter that even publication of this letter will likely result in more punishment from his jailers. He bravely asked for it to be published far and wide.
Even one judge overseeing at least some of these cases has demanded better treatment. As quoted from the letter:
Federal judge Royce Lamberth got to the point where on October 12th, he filed contempt of court charges against the warden of the DC DOC, claiming that Worrell’s civil rights have been violated, and demanding the U.S attorney general inquire further about his and other possible violations.
This statement is verified here. This article also confirms Nathan DeGraves’ claims with Judge Lamberth himself saying the conditions at this facility are deplorable.
My question is: WHO is really in charge here? Is it AG Merrick Garland? Is it Speaker Nancy Pelosi? Is it pResident Joe Biden?
Personally, I hold USAG Merrick Garland personally responsible. While I do not know who is running him, I believe it is the Department of “Justice” who is responsible to charge these prisoners and allow them to have their day in court. The evil may run deeper, but Garland is certainly in the midst of this.
No matter what – this has to stop. This is not us. This is not our way. Pray for these prisoners. Pray for the Jailers. Pray for those who are behind this despicable page in our history.
Meanwhile, rattle some cages. We need to let anyone who will listen, we cannot stand for this.
