United States Congressman Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene responded to the January 6, 2021 investigation of the protestors who marched on Capitol Hill. They identified possible FBI informants or agents. Senator Ted Cruz was questioning a spokesman on weather the FBI used agents or employees to have them actually lead the few protestors and goaded them into telling them to enter the Capitol building.
But the point is the protestors were just marching and protesting, not exhibiting violence in any way. They were protesting the obvious infractions that were caught on several hundred hours of videos during the 2020 election in at least five states, such as kicking out Republican election monitors, as well as pulling hundreds of thousands of ballots from vans delivered at 3:00 AM, pulling trunks of ballots from under vote counting stations, and covering windows blocking the view to ballot counting operations. At best, there was some semblance of abnormality that needed to be comprehensively investigated immediately following the actions. As it turned out, Biden barely won in 6 states in which the ballot counts were stopped, giving him the apparent vote margin to claim victory against President Trump. We will never know what the actually count was or if our election was cheated. This is very sad, and for that fact our Capitol building wouldn’t have been breeched if not for the few unknown instigators (many suspected of being Antifa or, horrifically, the FBI) who encouraged the protestors. Finally, a capitol police officer shot and killed an unarmed woman who was, at best, trying to get into a window, but most probably just milling about outside the building.
If our party is going to get better, we should start by acknowledging truths.
