Scissorhead M Davis alerts us to an article that is a companion piece to our post from Rep. Zoe Lofgren’s office the other day:
Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif), has compiled pieces of the publicly available social media postings made by those representatives who voted to deny Americans their choice of president; they did this even after a riotous mob overran the Capitol just hours earlier. Her nearly 2,000-page report, which has been online for a week, is both a trove of documentation and a steaming electronic landfill of fetid lies and incitement…
…Why do we need to see it? Because according to the 14th amendment of the US Constitution, “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress” after swearing an oath to support the Constitution, and then engaging in “insurrection or rebellion.”
And suddenly Rep. Lofgren’s office-wide effort takes form.
Anyone who has effectively abetted or engaged in insurrection does not belong in Congress.
The Constitution also empowers Congress to “punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour.” Those who promoted insurrection should be expelled. In the meantime, voters should have the facts. If their colleagues do not expel them, if the courts move too slowly, voters should take matters into their own hands.
