This week, Congress’ investigation into the 1/6 insurrection will take a step forward. On Thursday, the committee will present its findings to the public in televised hearings.Early indications are that the findings presented will be damaging to both Republicans and Donald Trump. Fox News has tried to change the conversation to migrant caravans. And Senator Marco Rubio is trying to change the subject to anything else.
The Florida Republican tweeted, “Instead of focusing on $5 gas,6000 illegal immigrants a day, record fentanyl deaths, or the violent criminals terrorizing America democrats use taxpayer money on a TV producer for the prime time political infomercial from the Jan 6th circus.”
Responding to the tweet, Joe Scarborough told viewers, “you have Republicans like Marco tweeting and saying, ‘Oh, it’s going to be a circus because there’s going to be a TV producer involved. These Republicans, instead of doing what they took an oath to do, which is to protect and defend the constitution of the United States, they’re just trying to distract.”
The MSNBC host continued:
“You know, with Marco, you have little children that are gunned down and bleed out, just horrible massacre, much like what happened right up the road from Marco in his state, Parkland. What does he do? He tweets out attacks of the NBA — really? And now we have this committee investigation coming up which, again, if you really love America, if you believe in American democracy, if you’re a patriot, you want to know what happened on January 6th. You want to know what happened inside the White House. But what’s he doing? He is tweeting, attacking a guy who is a former TV producer. Again, it’s always, what did we say about gun policy? It’s always, let’s change the debate.”
