Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) mentioned Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that she believes Republicans, who deny the seriousness of Jan. 6, 2021, “suppose their supporters are silly.”
Whereas discussing Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), visitor host Alicia Menendez mentioned: “These posts by Republicans come after new Home Speaker Mike Johnson mentioned on Friday that he would launch all… 44,000 prisoners.” Hours of safety footage of January 6 is launched to the general public.
It continued: “When requested for remark by NBC, Senator Lee’s spokesperson dodged the query concerning the man utilizing an e-cigarette or e-cigarette, then included questions on different rioters. I used to be a part of the bipartisan congressional committee that investigated the revolt. I studied this present day nicely. What do you say to your fellow Republicans?
“Properly, I am very embarrassed for them,” Lofgren mentioned. “A lot of them had been evacuated with me. They know this was not a traditional day for visiting vacationers. They know that greater than 160 law enforcement officials had been injured, some so significantly that they needed to depart the power.”
“They know that a whole lot of those rioters had been convicted by a jury of their friends due to overwhelming proof,” she added. I believe they suppose their supporters are silly, and that they’ll by some means persuade them that it did not occur. You realize, do not consider your mendacity eyes. It is actually pathetic.
