NEWSMAX’s Powerful New Documentary Premieres Tonight (Nov. 13) at 9pm ET!!
New York, New York — NEWSMAX is pleased to announce that its new documentary “Shame of a Nation” will premiere Sunday night at 9pm Eastern.
“Shame of a Nation” details the Jan. 6 Committee’s one-sided, false political narrative and relentless pursuit against former President Trump, his family, and staff, and the Department of Justice’s tactics to break the Jan. 6 defendants and detainees financially and psychologically.
“The Democrats are using the Jan. 6 defendants and detainees as pawns to paint Trump supporters as domestic terrorists and to keep President Trump out of the White House in 2024,” said co-executive producer Jack Thomas Smith.
“Shame of a Nation” was produced by NEWSMAX to accurately and fairly detail not only the tragic events of Jan. 6, 2021, but the serious civil rights violations that occurred against many of the protesters.
The film includes a careful examination of the House Jan. 6 Committee and the unprecedented weaponization of the Department of Justice and the FBI for political purposes.
The program includes exclusive interviews with former Trump strategist Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Jan. 6 attorney Joseph D. McBride, former Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro, former DOD Chief of Staff Kash Patel, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., #Walkaway Campaign Founder Brandon Straka, retired U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant Jessie Jane Duff, investigative journalist Cara Castronuova, Matt Perna’s aunt Geri Perna, Ryan Nichols’ wife Bonnie Nichols, optometrist Dr. Nicole Kish, and Norman, Oklahoma Councilman Rarchar Tortorello.
Award-winning filmmaker Jack Thomas Smith directed and co-executive produced the film, working with his production company Fox Trail Productions and his co-executive producer Mandy Del Rio.
Real crimes were committed by protesters on Jan. 6. Yet, in the aftermath of that day, the political party in power weaponized the Department of Justice, FBI, and other agencies — leading to unprecedented civil rights violations of U.S. citizens who engaged in those protests.
“The civil rights of the Jan. 6 defendants — including the ones currently being detained — are being violated. Every American has a right to a fair and speedy trial. But in many cases we’re not seeing that with the J6ers,” says Jack Thomas Smith.
He notes that many detainees have been held in solitary confinement for prolonged periods and have not received proper medical care, citing the example of Chris Worrell being denied cancer treatment by the D.C. Jail, for which the warden was held in contempt of court.
There have been accusations of mistreatment by the guards and other inmates as well as inhumane living conditions — mold on the walls, toilets that don’t work, and inedible food — as well as denial of religious services, haircuts, shaving, even fingernail trimming.
“Many have been denied bail,” says Smith. “Their due process rights are being violated with numerous hearing delays and postponements — causing mental anguish and financial hardship — forcing many to take plea deals while staring down at the possibility of 20 years in prison for obstruction of an official proceeding.”
In addition, Smith asserts, the Jan. 6 Committee has created “a one-sided narrative to the public to cast former President Trump, his family, his staff, and his supporters in the worst possible light. In the process, they are making it impossible for the Jan. 6 defendants to have a trial by a fair and impartial jury.”
Smith adds, “The Department of Justice has been politicized and weaponized.”
