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.
This hearing on Jan 6 demonstrates the big lie now encompasses both the insurrection and the 2020 election. Sitting GOP lawmakers are willing to whitewash the truth to excuse Trump & rioters now charged with crimes, even after an assault that threatened their own safety.
Miller says he did not speak to Trump on Jan 6
Miller says he did speak to Pence on Jan 6.
Miller says he issued order to deploy Nat Guard after speaking to Pence but Pence did not order him to do so.
Rosen says he did not speak to Trump on Jan 6.
Sayed was murdered in 2017. In 2018, I received an email from the SIV office asking if my letter of recommendation for Sayed written in 2012 was legitimate, and if I still recommended him for the program so they could begin the process. military.com/daily-news/opin…
There it is: Christopher Miller - who led the largest military in the world on Jan 6 - assigns blame to “irresponsible commentary in the media” & “hysteria” about military involvement for DOD failure to defend the Capitol.
“WHAT IS IT THAT WE'RE SAYING? WE'RE SAYING ELECTIONS DON'T WORK. WE'RE SAYING THAT YOU CAN JUST TAKE THE CRAZY RANTINGS OF ONE MAN AND DECLARE IT TO BE SO. SO THAT IS A HUGE VIOLATION OF THE RULE OF LAW.” @RepKinzinger to me this morning as GOP ousts @RepLizCheney
So not only would the GOP not put names to their vote to oust @RepLizCheney Cheney, they would not even put numbers. @GOPLeader called for a voice vote to avoid that. That sure is some stealth interval under-the-bus-throwing.
