GOP Counter-Claim Refuted By Testimony

(H/T: Twitter)

Well, now we know THAT is bs:

Paul Irving, the House sergeant-at-arms who resigned the day after the attack on the Capitol, said he did not consider involving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a decision to request National Guard troops to protect the Capitol on Jan. 6. Irving told the committee that the speaker’s office would be contacted “on the notification side,” saying he had the authority to act on his own.

This contradicts the report released by a group of House Republicans on Monday, which, in blaming Pelosi in part for the violence, said her office “micromanaged” Irving, who “succumbed to political pressures.”

    Nothing new here. A bunch of House Republicans lying. Senate Republicans do the same.
    Heck, most Republicans lie.

    The rethugs are great at spreading blame even where it doesn’t belong. They’d make a school lunch worker proud with how far that spread lasted.

    It also contradicts Christine Pelosi’s video—on the spot—of her mom taking control of the efforts to try get some help for the Capitol police because the Awful One-in-Chief was gleefully watching the mayhem and refusing to stop it.
