Today’s first day testimony of four police officers before the January 6 Commission on the January 6 Insurrection was truly gripping and very emotional.
All four officers demonstrated great courage in how they handled themselves on January 6, working to protect the US Capitol and the members of Congress who were threatened that day by seditionists and traitors.
Particularly disturbing was the description by an African American officer of the racist statements made to his face by these insurrectionists.
Particular kudos are due to Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for their commitment to truth, facts, and holding those accountable for the disgraceful violence and bloodshed of that day.
The Republican leadership, led by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, is destroying the image of the party as supporters of the law enforcement community, by their denial of reality of what truly happened on January 6.
Kevin McCarthy must be called to testify, and not be allowed to evade responsibility for his sins in backing Donald Trump in this debacle.
