@Debradelai @REX The republicans held the house and senate during these hearings. I don't know how it works in D.C. but it seems to me they could have called hearings, the DOJ could have filed charges. The President could have tried to influence it. I can only imagine they didn't for political reasons or because they didn't have a case.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
