Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that the GOP was too dangerous to be given control of Congress.
A part of the memo from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee read; “The stakes are clear – House Republicans are too dangerous for American families..

Kyle Rittenhouse Found Not Guilty
Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty during his trial.

Rittenhouse at the time of the riot was 17 and was forced to defend his own life after 3 men attacked him, he shot and killed two of the men and wounded a third. During the shooting one man shouted that he was going to kill Rittenhouse while the one man who survived the shooting testified that he did in fact aim his gun at Rittenhouse prior to being shot.
