House Ethics panel tosses complaints against GOP members over alleged roles in Capitol riot: Report

In the wake of a riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, Democrats were quick to blame then-President Donald Trump for allegedly inciting the violence — and he wasn’t the only one.

But just as Dems’ attempts to remove Trump from power for allegedly instigating the unrest failed, so have attempts by one House Democrat to force an investigation into three of her colleagues in the lower chamber on similar charges.

According to the Washington Examiner, GOP Reps. Mo Brooks (AL) and Paul Gosar (AZ) received letters from the House Ethics Committee on Tuesday informing them that complaints filed against them earlier this year by Democrat Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state would not be pursued by the bipartisan panel.

Just days earlier, the Examiner said, the committee had a similar message for Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (CO).

Committee drops complaints

Jayapal had reportedly accused all three GOP members of inspiring and aiding what she characterized as an insurrection on Capitol Hill in part by being among the 120 House Republicans who voted against certifying Joe Biden’s victory in the Electoral College.

The trio of Republicans didn’t mince words after hearing the complaints against them would be tossed. “This patently baseless claim attempted to conflate political disagreements with ethics,” Gosar said in a brief statement, according to the Examiner. “The House Committee on Ethics should not be politicized for partisan purposes.”

He later shared a photo of himself smiling broadly, with his feet propped up on a desk, alongside the caption: “How I sleep at night knowing I live rent- and guilt-free in Jayapal’s head.”

Wasted resources

Boebert, meanwhile, lamented the resources wasted by what she called a “ridiculous” complaint from her Democrat colleague.

According to the Examiner, Jayapal has also filed formal complaints against the Republicans with the Office of Congressional Ethics, an eight-person board of citizen reviewers, which has yet to render a ruling on the matter.

“I just think these things really have to be looked into, and we need to be sure that there’s some accountability for some of these members,” the Democrat congresswoman reportedly said. Whether she’ll get her wish remains to be seen.

  11. Apparently its more fun to try and accuse other People of something that isn’t so. MYOB Jayaphil. It seems that you spend a lot of your time and effort to blast those that are new in Congress. How sad that you think your so perfect. I hope your constituents approve of your mishandling of information. Just because there are people who are Independents, and Republicans doesn’t give you the right to be so self-righteous. I am quite sure that you are Lilly White in everything you have ever done or said. I bet you get paid plenty for Biden and Harris’s Office to try and make Pelosi and Schumer your living Idols. Shame on you. Your not fit to be in Congress. MYOB Got that.
