The two Republican House members where there to complain about Jan. 6 protestors ‘not being treated right ‘(?) when a same group of people walked behind their set up with signs and blowing a whistle ….
The two lawmakers where hustled away….
The coalition of lawmakers, led by Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (Ga.), Matt Gaetz (Fla.), Louie Gohmert (Texas) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.), were holding a news conference outside the DOJ to protest the treatment of individuals arrested in connection to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, when counterprotesters arrived on the scene.
One protester repeatedly blew a whistle during the event, and other demonstrators were holding signs that read “Jan 6th was an inside job, vets for democrats” and “Traitors + Rapists: Sit Down,” the latter likely referring to Gaetz, who is under investigation for an alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.
Greene addressed the demonstrations taking place during the news conference, saying, “To the guy that’s blowing the whistle: we are not deterred.”….
The fiery press conference occurred at the same time police officers were testifying on Capitol Hill before the Jan. 6 select committee that is probing the insurrection. That hearing, where one police officer described the rioters as “terrorists,” offered a starkly different illustration of the events that unfolded on Jan. 6 from the one the Republicans described at the DOJ.
