WATCH: GOP Lawmakers Denied Entry to DC Gitmo
Republican lawmakers Louie Gohmert and Marjorie Taylor Greene went to go try to visit the political prisoners being held in what is now referred to as DC Gitmo in Washington, D.C.
Many of them have been there for many months and the conditions of the facility are worse than Guantanamo Bay according to some insiders. Some inmates are even being asked to be transferred to Guantanamo Bay.
One inmate got a letter out in which he revealed the conditions of the facility:
The harsh, unlivable conditions of our unit has caused health hazards that defy Department of Health regulations. And on at least five occasions, RAW SEWAGE has overflowed our unit, causing human fecal matter to flood the floors and rooms. That’s also in addition to the MOLD on cell walls, as well as the rusty pipes, and DIRTY WATER that flows from these sinks. White rags TURN BROWN when exposed to the water from our faucets.
We are undergoing SEVERE NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES and STARVATION. For breakfast this morning, I received a tray of flavorless paste, two slices of bread, and a slice of bologna. Lunches usually consist of rice and beans, but we’ll get cold chicken/beef patties if we are lucky. For dinner, we are sometimes fed a diet of cheese sandwiches, and bologna and cheese 4 to 5 times per week.
Without commissary, people like myself are FORCED TO STARVE. I suffer from HEADACHES and NAUSEA on an almost REGULAR BASIS from the malnutrition and constant hunger I am subjected to. I have lost ALMOST 15 POUNDS since I’ve been detained.
Our rights to personal hygiene are also totally neglected. Razors are PROHIBITED, and inmates are forced to either go unshaved, and grow long beards, or use a razor free cream that BURNS and IRRITATES the skin. But many other jails have allowed the use of razors without incident. Haircuts are also PROHIBITED from unvаccinated inmates. For me, it’s been nearly 9 months. I look VIRTUALLY UNRECOGNIZABLE in the condition I’m in. I fear even my family would not recognize me.
If things are that bad, someone needs to go check in on them, which is why Gohmert and MTG went to the facility.
Once there, the deputy warden denied them entry telling them that they need permission first. Well…who is it that grants that permission? It’s the warden or deputy warden. This person literally is the one telling them they don’t have person to come inside while at the same time being the person who can give them permission.
What they’re going to do now is seek out a federal judge to order this deputy warden to be held in contempt. When it is this hard to hold a federal goverment accountable…even by the federal government…you know the system is messed up!
Today @replouiegohmert and myself were denied entry to visit Louie’s constituent & conduct oversight at the DC jail.
I’m extremely concerned about the treatment of J6 defendants & now ALL inmates being held there.
