After chaos and violence erupted in Washington D.C. last weekend following the “Million MAGA March,” Republicans on Capitol Hill are demanding hearings to examine the violence against Trump supporters, FoxNews reports.

House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, Rep. Jody Hice and Rep. Chip Roy wrote a letter to Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney regarding the lack of action taken by the city’s leaders amid the violence last weekend.

“We respectfully request a hearing on the violence directed at supporters of President Trump on November 14, 2020. These supporters were exercising their First Amendment right to peacefully assemble within the District of Columbia,” they wrote to Maloney. “The failure of the city’s leaders to afford basic protections to persons who may hold different political viewpoints from their own appears to be another concerning example of viewpoint discrimination in the District.”

The Republican members wrote a separate letter to D.C. Mayor, Muriel Bowser, requesting information on how her office plans to work with city police to “ensure the safety of those who seek to peacefully exercise First Amendment rights within the District.”

“These brazen attacks are part of a continuing trend against leftist agitators perpetrating acts of violence against individuals in the District under your watch,” they wrote. “The right to peacefully assemble in our nation’s capital under the First Amendment is paramount. This is true regardless of who is doing the protesting or the popularity or unpopularity of their cause.”

The lawmakers criticized Bowser for her “silence” following the violence against Trump supporters. It “suggests you apply these principles only for those who share your same political opinions,” they wrote.

Trump also condemned Bowser on Twitter, claiming she was not “doing her job,” and urged the city’s police force to “get going – do your job and don’t hold back!!”

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”

“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.

Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
