    Cruz and Hawley must RESIGN. They’ve broken the trust of the People!

    • Them and the other 12 who joined this crap shoot, it is time for them all to clean house and hold these people accountable, starting with trump. All of them, their crap and any friends to never be able to hold another government job again. Not even cleaning toilets.

      They will not resign because they make good money and power they are not stupid the only thing that can be out of power is to investigate all this sucker’s that they are in plan with trump amen

    • Read the constitution, it says they are not allowed to hold that job.

    • @lolita seymour Time for in depth investigation from a Justice department that doesn’t work for Trump or his puppets

      Prosecute them

  4. Their BS backfired on them for being selfish for political gain. Vote them out.

    • Randolph Spot | January 8, 2021 at 4:55 PM | Reply

      Hawley is from the deep red state of MO. Voters aren’t likely to vote him out unless he puts a D beside his name. But then again democrats in MO don’t put fascists on the ticket.

      They need to be removed from office. They are traders to America. Cruz was just reelected for six more years. He can do lots of damage in six years.

    • Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp

      Prison in Cuba

      They will lie now to save themselves.

    • Correct. It didn’t turn out they way they thought. Now they are cowards!

      Two snakes in the grass!

      Vote them out??? Imprison them!

    Cruz and Hawley are seditionists who contributed to an insurrection. Arrest them

      @Swamp Yankee I think you need to look up deflection too.
      So that makes 3 things you should look up now:
      1- What is a dictator and dictatorship
      2- Who was buddies with Jeffrey Epstein, known pedophile
      3- What is deflection.

      @Swamp Yankee and you’re an embarrassment and un-american

    • @Ferry Seegers oh so knowing the truth and having a different point of view is an embarrassment and un-american ?
      So much for all that unity honestly this is exactly what everyone expected from the leftist cult.

    • Ferry Seegers | January 8, 2021 at 5:53 PM | Reply

      @Swamp Yankee just go back to your swamp and stay there

      @Pedro Daniel Lopes Ferreira And I bet you would beieve in ghosts, lies, and whatever else if the left told you to believe it… think for yourself Man… if you can pffft

  6. If our leadership is not held accountable for their actions then we have no rule of law. Lead from the front, both should resign.

  7. Graham Whittaker | January 8, 2021 at 3:50 PM | Reply

    Why has Congress not taken any action regarding those members of congress who were happy to meet the insurrections?

  8. Remember these spineless politicians…NEVER FORGET!!!

  9. Josh Hawley is being hailed as the ‘most dangerous man”in the US .Simon & Schuster has decided to cancel publication of Senator Josh Hawley’s forthcoming book ..

      @JOSE Morass Do you even comprehend the absurdity of your argument?

    • @JOSE Morass what does China do with armed insurrectionists?
      I think it’s the death penalty, but you know or you wouldn’t have brought it up.

    • I feel bad for his wife & new baby…they didn’t sign up for this!

    • @JOSE Morass No. The publisher is also exercising its freedom of speech not to publish a book by this fascist grifter. You’ve never been to China either. It’s quite nice. Not that I support authoritarian rule—that’s precisely why I could never support Trump or any modern Republican.

    • Glenn Maillard | January 8, 2021 at 11:37 PM | Reply

      I agree. The guy is ten times smarter than Trump and ten times more dangerous. Trump is amoral by nature, Hawley by choice. Hopefully Hawley has made a fatal misstep. But who knows? The guy is a menace.

    Don Jr and his mistress need to be indited for telling thugs to fight

  11. Voltaire — ‘Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.’

    Duhhhh !!!! Lets get our country back from this burnt carrot and his sheep .


  13. Why shouldn’t their motives be questioned, Sen. Corker? If this pair ever wind up in court, there is going to be plenty of questions about their motives.

  14. Chereese Ferreira | January 8, 2021 at 4:04 PM | Reply

    Everyone that signed on should resign TODAY!

    • You guys are pushing it

    • @John Barker why

    • nancy garrison | January 8, 2021 at 5:45 PM | Reply

      Too late. They continually for FOUR years encouraged and emboldend a deranged self serving selfish egotistical maniacal manipulative narcissist.
      Too late.

    • resign? Shoot, they need to be jailed. Immediately

    • @John Barker People died. They were lied to and used as pawns toward one objective, to overturn a legitimate election. The reps and senators who signed on to contest the vote knew better, yet they parroted the lie, for political ends and ambitions. Every American, regardless of party affiliation, should be appalled and horrified by their craven abuse of power. Just an observation from a concerned Canadian.

    To New York AG…. let the indictments rain down at 12:01 pm January 20th.

  16. It’s called “Giving Aid and Comfort”…
    and they are just as guilty as those who Stormed the Capitol.Charge him also.

  17. Throw Cruz in jail for Treason. He is a traitor

  18. PaperKitty 99 | January 8, 2021 at 4:23 PM | Reply

    They should be charged for negligence and pay the families of those who died

  19. Claire Hutchinson | January 8, 2021 at 4:33 PM | Reply

    “Mistakes” cost life of police officer, criminals in cheap suits

  20. John Boehner nailed Cruz years ago when he called him “SATAN HIMSELF.”
