Democratic rep says Republicans ‘abetted’ Capitol riot, releases list of House members’ social media posts

Two months after the riot at the Capitol, Democrats are still pushing to hold Republicans in Congress as responsible for the chaos. In a report by Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), the congresswoman accused Republican House members of betraying their oath of office and released hundreds of their social media posts.

GOP House members are not only disputing the report’s claims, they’re also accusing Lofgren of violating House rules, according to the Daily Caller

Lofgren released the 1,939-page “social media review” which listed the social media posts from House members who voted to object to the electoral certification of the 2020 presidential election, NBC News reported.

Blame Republicans for Capitol riot

Lofgren, who chairs the Committee on House Administration, alleged that “[l]ike former President Trump, any elected Member of Congress who aided and abetted the insurrection or incited the attack seriously threatened our democratic government.”

“They would have betrayed their oath of office and would be implicated in the same constitutional provision cited in the Article of Impeachment,” she alleged in the report.

Lofgren continued: “That provision prohibits any person who has previously taken an oath as a member of Congress to support the Constitution but subsequently engaged in insurrection or rebellion from serving in Congress.”

According to The Daily Caller, the report contains Facebook, Parler and Twitter posts from over 100 House Republicans in the time between Nov. 3, 2020, and Jan. 31, 2021.

Republicans: Lofgren acted improperly

Three Republican members of the House Administration Committee have replied with a statement of their own, the Daily Caller reported.

In a letter to Lofgren, Reps. Rodney Davis (R-IL), Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) and Bryan Steil (R-WI) said that her allegations against them are wrong and questioned the propriety of her report.

The congressmen specifically expressed concerns that Lofgren used funds from her Members’ Representational Allowance (MRA) to conduct the investigation.

“As the Chairperson of the Committee which is responsible for overseeing the rules governing the use of the MRA, you more than anyone should know that the handbook is clear when it states ‘the MRA may only be used for official and representational expenses,'” the lawmakers wrote.

“Using your personal office resources to investigate other Members of Congress cannot be considered to be related to your representational duties to your district,” the letter stated.

  3. How come there are so many fools and criminals in politics who come out of CA. We need to close down the institutions that produce these people!

  4. Well now, she has opened the barn door, NOW let us have a look at ALL communications made by Democrats in Congress during the same time frame.
    EVERY SINGLE COMMUNICATION.. .nothing held back..

    Let the Public decide who has clean hands and has or has not broken their oath of office, committed treason, or planned insurrection.

    Fair is Fair, and Miss Democrat, YOU started the blame game.. let’s let it play all the way out.

  5. Talk about betraying our Constitution. She ought to check herself as well as all the Democrats that are voting for bills that betray our constitution. From Free speech to gun control, to election integrity. It’s hard to have any election integrity with all the wrong doings of the Democrats in the 2020 Presidential Election. They stole it and the SCOTUS just sat back and let it happen. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Democrats paid off SCOTUS to just look the other way and ignore all the claims about election fraud that happened in the swing states. Just think of it. PA had 200,000 more votes that were counted then they had people who actually voted. They are crooked and trying to steal everything from the American’s. Then their buddy, Biden opened the borders and is talking about possibly shutting down everything because of COVID. It’s his fault How many illegal aliens came through our border already that were infected and there was no social distancing and half of them weren’t wearing masks. That is a federal crime and he should be tried and found guilty of it. Although the Democrats are already talking about impeaching him, due to his cognitive decline. Which was obvious already during his campaign. What is wrong with everybody who voted for him? Are you sadistic or something. Or were you looking for a revolution between the Republicans and Democrats. And here we go again with the riots on the west coast. When are the Democrats going to put a stop to it. Pres. Trump wanted too, all summer, with Democratic governors not allowing him to. And the Democratic officials as just sitting back. Look, 1 arrest around all that rioting. WAKE UP AMERICA

    1. O was interrupted several times, it is how media try stop our reaction of disgrace to be published!

  6. Lofgren of California I guess you never wanted to ever be elected again huh.
    Another thing Lopez Obrador recently came out attacking Biden as a “migrant President,” whose policies are boosting illegal immigration and drug cartels.
    Love that Mexican President, not afraid to say it like it is. Biden is a boob Lofgren, and NO, the Republicans did not attack the Capital. The democrats did.
    You see Lofgren of California you don’t pay attention or you don’t care. Which is it? Newsom is only the beginning for California Lofgren.

Twitters idea about who should be on or off of there idiot platform are violating the first amendment. But Dorsey followed Michelle Obama’s order to kick the entire GOP off of its platform. Good don’t miss it.
