The disinterested and dismissive angle by congressional Republicans in the direction of the assault on the Capitol is astounding. The GOP selling itself because the pro- Structure and pro-law enforcement get together is now laughable. Primarily based on an apparent rip-off developed by actuality television producer Donald Trump, the “large lie” was born after the ” cease the steal” revolt failed.
