Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) is questioning whether the Capitol rioters were Trump supporters. He says nobody did a "poll" of the rioters. This is ridiculous. The rioters wore Trump hats/shirts, flew Trump flags, chanted pro-Trump slogans, and later told the feds they loved Trump.

From yesterday’s hearing with Christopher Miller, who was (nominally) in charge of the Pentagon’s Capitol-riot response. Never thought I’d be grateful Stephen Lynch is in Congress, but JFC these Repubs…

This is Rep. Andrew Clyde (Q-GA) saying the January 6 insurrection looked like “a normal tourist visit” inside the Capitol.
Just batsh*t crazy.

The most astounding thing about this (and there are many) is that these lawmakers are denying a violent insurrection that took place *at their own place of work.*
They were there! Their own lives, and their own staffers’ lives, were literally in danger.

But their God-Emperor had cast his cloak of protection over them… IT’S A F*CKING DEATH CULT.
