Home Republicans took over $152,000 from Reps. Andy Biggs, Mo Brooks, and Paul Gosar who’ve been named as riot planners.
In line with a press release from the Democratic Congressional Marketing campaign Committee as supplied to PoliticusUSA:
The lead organizer of the failed riot on January sixth, which ultimately invaded the Capitol and murdered a police officer, named three Republican members of Congress as his co-leads in organizing the tried coup. Ali Alexander, web troll and Republican firebrand, claimed in a now-deleted video that Reps. Andy Biggs, Mo Brooks, and Paul Gosar got here up with the thought to ‘stress’ members of the Home and Senate whereas they had been voting to certify the outcomes of the presidential election, received by President-elect Joe Biden with a landslide 7 million vote majority. At a previous ‘Cease the Steal’ rally, Alexander referred to as Gosar “the spirit animal” of their “motion.”
Listed here are the Home Republicans who obtained donations from the riot planners:
It’s not sufficient for Home Republicans to return the cash. They have to be held accountable for his or her efforts to incite the overthrow of america authorities. On the Senate aspect, an investigation of Sens. Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz has been referred to as for, however what occurred within the Home was even worse than what Cruz and Hawley did.
The riot was plotted from throughout the Home, and any Home Republican who accepted cash from the plotters is unfit to serve in Congress and will lose or be compelled to vacate their seat.
