For months now, the Republican party has done everything it can to obstruct an investigation into the January 6th insurrection. And some Reps have been more critical than others when it comes to the probe.
Not surprisingly, a number of those congresspeople have now been connected to the planning on the event. During his Monday night monologue, Jimmy Kimmel tore into the Republicans, noting their stupidity.
The late night host was referencing a report which linked Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Paul Gosar, Louie Gohmert to he planning. The Rolling Stone article quoted an organizer as saying, “Our impression was that it was a done deal. That he’d spoken to the president about it in the Oval … in a meeting about pardons and that our names came up. They were working on submitting the paperwork and getting members of the House Freedom Caucus to sign on as a show of support.”
“They had dozens of planning meetings with members of Congress and White House staff,” cracked Kimmel. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Marjorie Taylor Greene of Mordor, and several others were said to be in on the plans.”
The host continued, “This guy [Paul Gosar] When he was running for office, six of his siblings — his own brothers and sisters — made an attack ad against him and called him a traitor. Before he was one of the most hated members of Congress, he was the most hated member of his family.”
