Rep. Cicilline Moves To Censure GOP Reps ‘Downplaying’ Jan. 6

 

“When you have members of Congress who are repeating falsehoods and mischaracterizations about the violent and bloody insurrection that occurred on January 6, it’s very dangerous,” says Rep. Cicilline on his resolution to censure the GOP House members who continue to defend the attack on the Capitol.

    1. @Ri Ma you don’t think capital hill has cameras? Where’s the video of it. Common sense. Even for you. We have cameras all over that place. Yet this media company doesn’t show the tapes.

    2. @Kevin S if you’re going to ignore all the video footage, testimony, social media records etc in favor of a theory you have no evidence for, ” common sense ” isn’t a phrase you should use.

    3. @Kevin S really ? Then all the news videos of Republicans calling for people to stop the steal days before the attack on our Capital and the laws that govern our nation . We’re all WHAT ?

  1. LIES. That’s what republicans are repeating. LIES. Stop treating them like children. They’re supposed to be grown up. So GROW A PAIR and call them LIARS!.

    1. John 8:44
      Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

  2. Damnit, call them what they are. A bunch of lying hippocrates who can’t and won’t do their job.

    1. @WilliamOccamensis Instead of calling it “The Big Lie” call it what it really was. A failed attempted coup. That pushes Republicans into a corner; they either supported the coup, or they supported democracy. .

  3. The truth matters and so does justice. Please confront these liars and hold them accountable.

    1. Trump and his cult believe the big lie. They could therefore pass a lie detector test (polygraph) with flying colors. There are delusional, people who lack a conscience, and psychopaths who could never be detected via a polygraph test. That is why the results are not allowed in Court.

    2. @Josef Jerbils Newsmax, OAN, Fox, PregarU. Wow. You’re drinking all the Kool-aid. Geobbels btw.

  4. About time. The people promoting these lies were involved in it and they know they could be held accountable. Investigate and prosecute.

    2. Over the summer, the right wing groups infiltrating/hijacked BLM protest. Over 100 cases in 30+ states

  5. The truth does matter. So does making them all swear under OATH! Let them ALL LIE ABOUT IT AND CHARGE THEM WITH PERJURY!! TREASON!!

    1. It’s not “treason”. You sound like a fool and you diminish your own stance when you’re hollering for treason. By law and according to the Constitution… A charge of treason cannot be applied at this point. “Treason”. is a war-crime and is only applicable during a time of formally declared war against a foreign government. That hasn’t been possible since WWII. The word and the crime you should be using is “sedition”. Stop shouting for treason for God’s sake. Read the Constitution and be realistic in what you are demanding.

    1. It’s the tRump playbook…tRump was asked by a reporter why he lies and repeats the same words and phrases over and over again…tRump’s response was “if I say it over and over, then eventually they’ll believe it”. This is brainwashing 101 and he knew/knows exactly what he’s doing and so does the whole corrupt GOP

    2. Gaslighting. Trying to make us believe we didn’t see what we watched with our own eyes.

    3. The same way you do. Are you special because you believe one way and cannot accept that you could be mistaken? Or that all the facts are not always presented on either side. There is a middle ground you know. Unless you know it all.

    4. @ldahl04 Absolutely incorrect…there is no “middle ground” (as you call it) with full-fledged CULTS who even further DENY the results of fair and free elections even after LOSING over 64 cases which were thrown out (mostly tRump judges) with absolutely NO MERIT or PROOF, whatsoever. It is you, that need admit that you are living in an alternative reality, where you dictate your own truth no matter what the courts, constitution has ruled on – let alone even basic common sense. We all saw it, and so did you…and we don’t deny pure facts, but do as you wish, it’s your right…but remember your rights and beliefs end, where our nose begins!

    1. Right-wingers: “Whatever you see and hear with your own eyes and ears are lies! Likewise, whatever that is factual is also a lie! But whatever lies we told you about are the truth!”

    2. John 8:44

  6. Yes and then after you make McCarthy tell the truth incarcerate him for lying in the first place. After removing him from public office of course.

  7. January 6th is something that I will never forget and something that I will remember better than what I had for breakfast! This is definitely one of the things that The Former Guy and his sycophants deserve to be locked up permanently without parole for!!

    1. Your TV will never let you forget their vision of the events that occurred on Jan 6th. Praise the pasty white racist deity!

    2. @Google User Just peaceful tourists hugging Capital Police officers and hoping to get a selfie with Nancy Pelosi and Mike Pence, right? Nah, I won’t gag down that much bs, you can have all of it.

    3. ​@Blair Haffly Sure lol. Seen worse during a tickle me elmo sale on black Friday but I also live outside Portland.

    4. @Google User Yeah, I hear your whole city has been burned to the ground. Are you camping out in a tent? The vandalism is one thing, the intent behind the two movements is a whole other thing. Human rights protest v sedition.

  8. unless there are consequences for those who do not condemn the insurrection, it definitely will happen again

    1. Why? Because they were Americans? Newsflash: Domestic terrorists exist. And everyone who stormed the capital WAS and IS one. Period.

    2. Excellent nuance in this comment. Agree! Look at the absurd trumpery of Repug-lie-cans, such as Clyde De-nile: (he’s drowning in de-Nile, submerged in lies).

  9. Absolutely sickening. And guess what? Not one of them will ever be held even a little bit responsible. It’s embarrassing.

    1. It makes me sick to my stomach to See how sure the GQP is that they will not be accountable

  10. OH MY! These politicians blatant lies because they know that their supporters will believe them even with truth staring them in their face. It’s senseless.

  11. All of it needs to be done out in the open. No close door meetings No secret counts, like they did with Liz Cheney it’s time to hold them accountable. Once and for all.
