Putin in Russia
Putin ratchets up effort to crush Navalny's opposition with closed-door hearing.
Putin aims to declare Navalny and his supporters as extremists.
Russian officials will conduct a closed-door hearing using state-secret evidence on Monday that could declare Navalny’s political group and Anti-Corruption Foundation extremist organizations, according to reports out of Moscow.
If prosecutors win the arguments, Navalny’s and his supporters could be placed on the same legal footing as Islamic extremist groups such as al Qaeda in the eyes of the Russian government.
Just wearing a short with Navalny’s slogan, "Russia will be happy" could result in jail time.
The apparent show trial comes as Navalny and his supporters have been under ever-increasing pressure.
Democrats in the United States
Democrats vow to punish Trump supporters.
The Democrats despise President Trump and his legion of loyal supporters. Now they’re threatening to destroy your life if you ever supported Trump.
Robert Reich, who worked with Democrats Obama and Clinton in the past, has said “When this nightmare is all over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.”
Chris Hayes, Left-wing talking head from MSNBC, agreed with the idea of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission and it should include people who don’t believe in wearing masks to stop the spread of COVID-19.
THIS Should Scare the Hell Out of Every American: Democrats Promise to Persecute Trump Supporters if They Take White House… AND THEY MEAN IT!
Elizabeth Warren calls for the creation of a Justice Department task force to investigate and prosecute corruption and immigration “violations” committed by the Trump administration. This plan is hatched while the Democrats/media excuse the Biden corruption entirely.
Nancy Pelosi blasted President Trump and Republican lawmakers, calling them “domestic enemies” and “enemies of the state”.
Supporters of then-President Donald Trump held a rally in Washington DC on January 6. 439 people have been arrested and charged with crimes. The FBI is seeking the public's help to identify people who took part in the rally.
MICHAEL SHERWIN federal prosecutor: After the 6th, we had an inauguration on the 20th. So I wanted to ensure, and our office wanted to ensure that there was shock and awe, that we could charge as many people as possible before the 20th. And it worked because we saw through media posts that people were afraid to come back to D.C. because they're like, "If we go there, we're gonna get charged." ... We wanted to take out those individuals that essentially were thumbing their noses at the public for what they did.
So now it’s clear. It wasn’t that 400 people broke actual laws. No, their crime, said the federal prosecutor, was "thumbing their noses at the public," meaning the Democratic Party. It wasn’t "insurrection." It was showing disrespect to Joe Biden and his enforcers like Michael Sherwin, and that can’t happen.
That’s why Michael Sherwin decided to use "shock and awe" — to teach them a permanent lesson about expressing their political opinions. As Sherwin explained, "the scope and scale of this investigation are really unprecedented, not only in FBI history but probably DOJ history."
AGAIN, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE, OTHER THAN GEOGRAPHICAL?
