Cawthorn Vows To “Bust Out” Riot’s “Political Prisoners”

“The reason why they have taken these political prisoners is because they’re trying to make an example because they don’t want to see the mass protests in Washington. They don’t want to see people addressing their government for leaving thirteen Marines to die in Afghanistan.

“What’s controversial is we’ve got 536 people being held in solitary confinement for 23 hours out of the day who are not being allowed to have religious freedoms. Who are having their rights stripped away from them, not being capable of having someone represent them and being political hostages.

“This is something that when I first started hearing about it, I was, like, ‘No way that’s really going on.’ But I’ll tell you with the small amount of investigating we’ve done, it’s going on.” – Madison Cawthorn, yesterday.

The number changes daily with new arrests, but at the last count, fewer than 50 Capitol rioters are being held awaiting trial, not 536. And rather obviously, none of them have been denied lawyers.
