"Once upon a time, Stefanik viewed Trump as misogynistic (at least in his rhetoric) and willfully negligent in how he handled a serious threat to the nation," @DavidCornDC writes. "Now she has become one of his most devoted lieutenants." bit.ly/3uDO2PI
Rep. Andrew Clyde of Georgia says there was no insurrection on January 6th, and likens the people entering the Capitol on TV footage to tourists. Says the only insurrection he's ever witnessed was the Russia investigation.
On Sept 15, Trump boasted that the Abraham Accords would “mark the dawn of a new Middle East” and lead to “comprehensive peace across the entire region.”
Fast forward eight months and that boast appears even more risible now than it did at the time. wapo.st/3eD5bn8
New low — Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), a promoter of the Big Lie, just mounted a full-throated defense of the Capitol rioters. He called them "peaceful patriots," and condemned the fact that they are now under DOJ investigation. He also decried that some of them are in jail.
After the vote on Liz Cheney, Republican Byron Donalds of Florida used this analogy:
"If you had a member of the Democratic leadership who said they don’t believe in climate change anymore, would they stay in leadership? I don’t think so.”
Wow. An angry Ro Khanna grills former Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, "Will you apologize to the American public for what happened on your watch? Will you apologize to the troops for what happened on your watch?"
The GOP is cracked. At a hearing on the 1/6 insurrection, Rep. Clay Higgins calls Democrats in control of Congress "a disturbing faction" that endangers America and claims the 1/6 attack on the Capitol cannot be discussed without reference to BLM protests.
Lin Wood states that Trump is still the president and that the military would call on him “for the code if they need a first strike.” He also states he believes Trump signed the Insurrection Act in secret.
