Why are Republicans fearful of investigations into the January 6 insurrection? Why are they still voting against new investigations into how the attack was staged, why security failed on Capitol Hill, or whether Trump or a member of Congress helped organize or enable the attack? It appears that the Republicans are running an anti-democracy cover-up as their strategy to regain control of the House and Senate, even if it destroys our democracy. President Nancy Pelosi has formed a committee to find the truth.
Republicans clearly think their voter base is idiots. And are they right? Video after video released by the FBI shows violent rioters beating up the Capitol and DC police who are trying to protect the Capitol and members of Congress. The videos show Trump supporters shouting threats of physical violence at Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. There are pictures of many of the rioters wearing clothes that display anti-Semitic and racist messages. Republican officials assume their voters will see this video of clear evidence of insurrection and violence and believe that the Republican Party says they are seeing brave patriots trying to save democracy.
Corrupt intelligence only works on uneducated and credulous people, and we are learning that those descriptors disproportionately fit Republican voters in the red states. Each state certified their election results in the 2020 elections. Attorney General and Trump ally William Barr announced that there was no significant electoral fraud and the Supreme Court, packed with Trump, agreed. More than 65 courts throughout unfounded claims of fraud and the 2020 presidential election have been declared one of the most fraud-free elections in American history. Yet despite this overwhelming proof that the “Big Stolen Election Lie” is a false claim, Trump supporters don their stupid looking hats and shirts in support of the “Big Lie” and the attack on Trump’s precision to democracy. Maybe one day mental health screenings and Constitution tests will be required to vote …
Many members of Congress seen in the videos running in fear to protect themselves are the same officials who are now whitewashing the insurrection to distract from the truth;
IN THEIR ADDICTION TO POWER, THEY HAVE CHOSEN TRUMP AND ITS CORRUPT, RACIST ASSAULT ON DEMOCRACY OVER PATRIOTISM AND THE VALUES THAT HAVE HISTORICALLY DEFINED AMERICA.
Republicans in the House and Senate recently voted against forming a bipartisan commission to investigate what led to the insurrection. They are blatantly indifferent to why security on Capitol Hill was unprepared for the scope of the attack, and what individuals, (including Donald Trump or members of Congress), enabled and incited the attack aimed at stopping the certification of a democratic presidency. choice. This obstruction of the fact finding can only be construed as a cover-up.
Corrupt and character-flawed minority leader Mitch McConnell has bullied the Senate into voting against further investigations as a strategy to distract from the obvious; that party leader Donald Trump incited the insurrection, and many Republican congressmen supported and perhaps enabled it. Immediately after the attack on the Capitol, Mc Connell went public on video and said, “The president is morally and practically responsible for inciting the attack on the Capitol.” He added that the mafia was “fed with lies” and the president and others provoked the violence. Since those statements, Mc Connell has blocked any Republican support for Congressional investigations into the insurrection.
While the nervousness of being chased by Trump’s rioters was fresh on his mind, House minority Kevin McCarthy blamed the president for inciting the mob. He made a statement in Congress saying: “The president is responsible for Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding. These events require immediate action by President Trump. ”Six months later, he has been obsessively kissing Trump’s ass, downplaying the insurrection and obstructing a Congressional investigation. Are McConnell and McCarthy protecting members of Congress they know encouraged and supported the rioters?
McConnell is a partisan power monger who is not interested in the truth if it threatens his power and the Republican dominance of Congress. Trump supporters are also showing that a person’s love, personality, and rally culture are more important than the survival of the democracy established by the founding fathers. Yet despite ignorance and corruption, Trump lost the election and Democrats control the House and Senate. There is reason for hope.
