Not so sure using a grand jury is the best approach, though. I mean, it doesn't have to be unanimous to produce an indictment, and Fulton County is definitely not Trump territory. But the folks sitting on that grand jury will likely be (deeply) concerned about being targeted by Trump supporters. That fear may swing enough votes to scuttle the indictment.

I'm glad to see these jackasses being rounded up by law enforcement. But I have to say, charging the people who went inside the Capitol building with a misdemeanor is a) white privilege, and b) reckless as hell.
They attacked Congress, for f**k's sake. The kid gloves need to come off.

Law enforcement has to draw the line, and begin by policing its own ranks. They are not all the same, but that needs to be demonstrated, it's no longer an option to rely on blanket support from conservatives. That blanket is a moth-bitten rag.
