Republicans have tried to downplay the seriousness of their January 6th attack, but Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is reassuring Americans that Congress won’t let it happen. He says that the public saw the truth with their own eyes, in streaming video, the day of the attack, and that the truth won’t be covered up.
He has specifically called out House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, who officially opposes the 1/6 commision. McCarthy is reportedly dodging a Capitol police officer who was part of the protective force during the insurrection attempt. Officer Michael Fanone says that he’s tried to reach out to the GOP Leader and been shut down, even hung up on. Swalwell is pushing McCarthy to listen.
“Back the Blue” is more than a hashtag. It’s about what you do and don’t do. And you refuse to meet Officer Mike Fanone who saved your life. Why? https://t.co/I3c5xRzFlQ— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) May 17, 2021
