Reps. Marjorie Taylor Green and Louie Gohmert were finally allowed to visit the Washington, D.C., prison where dozens of political prisoners are being held without bail for their role in the political protest at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. What they found was shocking and disgraceful.

“Last night I finally got into the Deplorable Jail, the D.C. jail where these people are bing held for months on end in conditions like I have never seen in my life. The people down at Gitmo, terrorists, are living in better conditions than these people in this DC jail. Every American in this country should be outraged and disgusted that our government has been turned into some kind of political weapon that tortures people in jail and wants to re-educate them and make them denounce the president that they love and denounce the country that they love and wants to tear them down and beat them because they sing the National Anthem every night at 9 p.m.”

1. Last night we toured the DC jail. My staff and I are writing a full report this morning on our 3+ hour long tour. I’ve never seen human suffering like I witnessed last night. While some were shown to us in seemingly beneficial programs, others were in tortuous lockdown.

2. Some inmates were receiving continuing education classes, others were truly suffering from long stays in solitary confinement for “bad behavior.” I’ll never forget hearing their screams. This was in a different part of the jail, not the J6 part. Being alone surely is hell.

3. At what seemed the end of our tour as we were being led toward the exit, we had not seen the J6 defendants yet. I asked to see them & was told it was not part of my tour. I demanded to see them and would have gone scorched earth if I was not allowed and was making it known.

4. Phone calls were made & permission was given. We then were taken to another section of the jail and entered the Patriot wing. I was greeted by men with overwhelming cheers who rushed out to meet me with tears streaming down their faces. They have felt forgotten & hopeless.

5. It was like walking into a prisoner of war camp and seeing men who eyes can’t believe someone had made it in to see them. They are suffering greatly. Virtually no medical care, very poor food quality, and being put through re-education which most of them are rejecting.

6. Our detailed report will outline everything we saw in every area of the jail we were allowed to see, on behalf of all inmates.

7. I am committed to ending this political war and seeing that our justice system is never used against Americans as a political weapon ever again. I am also beginning a plan for real prison reform. Our nation is broken and our people are divided. It’s time to fix it.
