‘There Was No Riot’ Say Home Republicans in Huge Lie

US Representative Paul GosarAn Arizona Republican and white nationalist (his own family calls him a white supremacist) is one of the most extreme members of Congress, but claims that several other GOP lawmakers covered the deadly January 6th uprising just hours later today The expulsion of Rep. Liz Cheney from the Republican leadership is as wrong and dangerous as that of Gosar.

During a House hearing on the insurgency instigated by then-President Donald Trump, Arizona white nationalist lawmaker defended the insurgents on Wednesday, calling them “peaceful protesters” harassed by the Justice Department.

“In an irritable exchange with former US Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen about Ashli ​​Babbitt, a Trump supporter who was shot by the Capitol Police while trying to enter the chamber,” Forbes said, “Gosar said as a “veteran” who was “wrapped up” in a US flag alleging that she was executed – the Capitol police officer who killed Babbitt was cleared of the wrongdoing. “

But even Gosar’s claims were not most different from the basic facts.

Here is South Carolina’s GOP Congressman Ralph Norman Today it was Trump supporters who actually denied the insurgents:

Also from today’s hearing, Andrew Clyde MP (R-GA) falsely claiming it was a “lie” to say that there was a riot:

Four months after the U.S. Capitol broke … here we are:

Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga) just said, “There was no riot. Calling it a riot is a bold lie. “

Here’s how some react:

People died, windows were smashed, they sang to hang Mike Pence, 140 police officers were wounded, the house, the Senate and the vice president went into hiding, the staff huddled in offices for hours.

Clyde suggests that it was just a recalcitrant mob that some rioters “vandalized”.
