Capitol Police Demand Arrests of GOP Members of Congress (House and Senate) Who Aided Insurrection


Raw Story: Capitol Police officers issue a letter on their official letterhead saying that they have a “profound disappointment” with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for opposing the Jan. 6 Commission.

Citing the “physical trauma” and “mental anguish,” the letter also acted as if the Republicans were using their opposition to the Commission to cover for GOP members.

“On Jan. 6 where some officers served their last day in the US Capitol Police uniform, and not by choice, we would hope that the Members whom we took an oath to protect, would at the very minimum, support an investigation to get to the bottom of EVERYONE responsible and hold then 100 percent accountable no matter the title or position they hold or held.”

Many Republicans have announced that the attack on the Capitol wasn’t that bad on Jan. 6, even going so far as to call the insurrectionists “patriots” or “tourists.” It’s a sentiment that has infuriated many DC Metro Police officers and Capitol Police, as they said in the letter.

“It is inconceivable that some of the Members we protect would downplay the events of Jan. 6. Members’ safety was dependent upon the heroic actions of USCP. It is a privileged assumption for Members to have the point of view that ‘It wasn’t that bad.’ That privilege exists because the brave men and women of the USCP protected you, the Members.”

  1. “It wasn’t that bad” is a lame and limp wrist tactic that sounds as bland as popular music has since the 1980’s. BTW Josh’s pose strikes me as he might be a closeted gay man. His rejoinder certainly fits.

  2. Those are Capitol “policemen” who want some blood-justice.
    One would think they’d know how politics works on Capitol Hill. As long as ol’ boys play ball with the inside club, anything and everything bad can be made to go away.

  3. ReTrumplicans are so transparently corrupt right now, it’s amazing that the Trumpsters continue to be taken in by this consummate con man, Donald Trump. But, we’re talking true-believer stuff here, folks. Eric Hoffer defines a true believer as one who is deeply, sometimes fanatically devoted to a cause, organization, or person. He also includes those who stick to a dogma or belief system irrespective of the facts. That pretty much describes the folks who stormed the Capitol on January 6th.
