So a mostly peaceful protest (actual, not sarcastic) at the US Capitol, which evidently was partially initiated by FBI informants, is now justification to turn the US Capitol Police from a police force tasked with protecting Congress in DC into a paramilitary agency with nationwide investigative and enforcement authority that reports to the majority party of the Legislature.
This is an incredible expansion of authority, which gives Congressional Democrats direct control over a Law Enforcement Agency.
This makes me nervous. Such an agency is rife for political abuse, which I assume is a feature not a bug.
If the Nancy Pelosi wanted to create her own Sturmabteilung, this is how to do it.
