Mark your calendar if you’re keeping up with this.
Four GOP reps are going to be holding a press conference tomorrow, relating to the treatment of January 6th rioters who are presently detained by The U.S. Government.
The press conference is going to be held by Reps: Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Paul Gosar, and Marjorie Taylor Greene.
Some of us already know of or strongly suspect the brutal treatment and torture of our fellow citizens right now. Most people not paying attention or watching corporate media have little to no idea.
It’s up to you to spread awareness about this, and maybe if enough of us say something we can get humane treatment for our fellow Americans.
Here are the details of the upcoming press conference:

Politico highlights the alleged treatment of the prisoners:
Tensions are running high between guards and inmates at a D.C. jail housing many of the defendants in Jan. 6 cases, with at least one of those prisoners alleging that he was brutally beaten by correctional officers.
For weeks, Capitol riot defendants being held in Washington have complained that they are locked in their cells with virtually no human contact for 23 hours a day. But a startling, graphic account offered publicly in court on Tuesday by one such inmate, Ronald Sandlin, went further: alleging that guards have subjected those charged in the Jan. 6 events to violence, threats and verbal harassment.
“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” Sandlin said during a bail hearing conducted by video before U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable,” he added, saying he was being subjected to “mental torture.”
If the DOJ had damming evidence against the Jan 6th political prisoners they would have charged & tried them months ago & released the hours of tapes, if it were even close to being damming they would broadcast it 24/7.
The denial of due process is both telling & infuriating.

ATTORNEY: Jan. 6th prisoners are being brutally beaten, stripped, hogtied, and humiliated by guards. One prisoner has even been blinded in one eye. pic.twitter.com/UMfOYCIp9z

Reuters likewise reported:
The participant in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riots nicknamed the “QAnon Shaman” is negotiating a possible plea deal with prosecutors, after prison psychologists found he suffers from a variety of mental illnesses, his attorney said.
In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety.
The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said.
“As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday.
