President-elect Joe Biden said on Thursday that "the mob of thugs" who attacked the U.S. Capitol were treated much better than peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters have been.

"No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn't have been treated very, very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol," Biden said in remarks delivered to the press.


"We all know that's true."

Biden went on to say that the disparity in treatment was "totally unacceptable."

In contrast to protesters who were teargassed in venues like Lafayette Square last June, the vast majority of the Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol have been allowed to walk free and were not confronted by a large police presence.

Footage and photos from the event showed the attackers rushing after police and roaming through the halls of the Capitol with minimal police response.



From a January 7 press conference:

JOE BIDEN: No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn't have been treated very very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol. We all know that's true.
And it is unacceptable. Totally unacceptable.
The American people saw it in plain view and I hope it sensitized them to what we have to do.

Spurious, misleading, and even exaggerated accusations of connections with China are a source of anxiety for Republicans in the 2022 races, while campaign strategists and candidates have labeled such allegations a “prime attack in a Republican primary,” according to the Washington Post.

John Eastman

Former Trump attorney John Eastman used his University of Colorado email account to collude with a Republican lawmaker in Pennsylvania to formulate a pretext to seat Trump electors in a state Joe Biden won by nearly 82,000 votes. It was a last ditch-bid to overturn the 2020 presidential election, new emails obtained by the House Select Committee show.

Eastman devised a sinister idea to label tens of thousands of absentee ballots illegitimate, thus giving then-President Trump the state’s popular vote lead. This method, Eastman proposed, “would help provide some cover,” beneath which Republicans could swap Biden’s electors with sham electors for Trump who would subvert the 2020 elections.
