(Big League Politics) – Congressional Representative Paul Gosar delivered remarks on Tuesday about a new report exposing the inhumane treatment allegedly endured by Jan. 6 political prisoners, stating that “What is being described by these political prisoners is nothing short of human rights violations,” National File reported.
“The physical conditions described by my friends of these inmates can only be described as inhumane,” Gosar said. “Lacking access to their earnings, to evidence, to their families, and even proper nutrition, these inmates are suffering disproportionately from long periods of isolation from the outside world.”
Gosar continued, “Many inmates continue to describe harrowing stories of being held in confinement for 19 to 20 hours a day, and only being allowed outside for a mere two days a week. They are being denied to right to attend chaplain or religious services, they aren’t even being allowed communion.”

Congressmen Gosar continued the monologue, pointing out that the vast majority of those being held in prison for charges and allegations related to the January 6th storming of the US Capitol had perfectly clean records for their entire lives until that very day.
“These are not hardened thugs, murderers, or gang members with long histories of crimes,” Gosar said. “These are not unruly or dangerous, violent criminals. These are dads, brothers, veterans, teachers. All political prisoners who continue to be persecuted endure the pain of unjust suffering.”
Questions as to why Attorney General Merrick Garland and others in the United States government are seemingly politically persecuting the protestors while also not allowing the public release of a massive amount of video surveillance were also brought up to the forefront.
The Arizona representative stated that the Jan. 6 political prisoners “certainly deserve to be treated fairly, and equally to other rioters arrested at other events that took place across this country in 2020,” and asked, “My question is this: Mr. Biden, Attorney General Garland, why are you so interested in ruining the lives of these folks instead of equal justice?”
“Why won’t you publicly release the hours and hours of video surveillance taken on January 6th? What are you afraid of? What are you hiding?” Gosar demanded. “The heart of this country is equal treatment, especially by the courts. The public demands and the defendants deserve equal justice under the law. What is being described by these political prisoners is nothing short of human rights violations. The silence from the ACLU & Amnesty International is deafening.”
The prison facility in which the January 6th protestors were being held was also visited by Georgia Congressional Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene back in November. Greene was rattled by the experience, explaining that the inmates had largely lost hope and that “it was like they were prisoners of war.”
