The Republican lawmakers had gathered Tuesday to press the Division of Justice (DOJ) for a standing report on people arrested following the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol, who they known as “political prisoners.”
However they have been repeatedly interrupted and finally ended the occasion after counterprotesters acquired too near the audio system.
One protester repeatedly blew a whistle in the course of the occasion, and different demonstrators have been holding indicators that learn “Jan sixth was an inside job, vets for democrats” and “Traitors + Rapists: Sit Down,” the latter doubtless referring to Gaetz, who’s under investigation for an alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old lady.
Oh, and listed below are some clips, in case you like a visible:
Be aware that Greene backed down and stopped asking questions precisely 30 seconds after declaring, “We is not going to again down, we is not going to cease asking questions.” What a warrior.
Ah, however the MTG bum’s rush was simply an aperitif. Tuck into this tasty morsel, of us:
So the one individual on the press convention who truly refused to cease asking questions was this reporter, who wouldn’t relent in inquiring about Gaetz’s (alleged) serial abuses.
To be honest, we needs to be involved in regards to the rights of any individual—citizen or not—who’s in jail or jail awaiting trial. However in some way I doubt the Goofus Brigade cares in regards to the a whole lot of 1000’s of nontraitors who’re detained and awaiting trial within the U.S. If there actually is a official concern in regards to the rights of the Jan. 6 rioters who’re at present incarcerated, I’d quite hear it from Amnesty Worldwide than Assholes Included.
Contemplating that Greene and Gaetz can’t find a venue in which to disseminate their mind poisons and that their vaunted freedom tour is sucking up resources faster than Donald Trump Jr.’s sinuses, they may take into consideration taking a break from their performative bullshit.
Then once more, what the hell else are they going to do? Legislate? Yeah, that’s an excellent one.
