The House Ethics Committee voted against convening an investigative panel and won’t even bother reviewing a Democrat complaint against U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert claiming
Trump the Coloradan instigated and aided in the Jan. 6 Capitol protest.
Here’s the letter from the Ethics Committee announcing their decision.
U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, whose district includes Seattle, Washington, filed complaints against several Republicans blaming them for the protest inside the U.S. Capitol.
Lawmakers fled the House and Senate chambers as the protestors filed into the building.
Jayapal accused Boebert of putting their lives in danger for tweeting “Speaker has been removed from the chambers.”
That was actually a news item, the media were reporting the same thing.
It’s not like Boebert tweeted that Pelosi was in the ladies bathroom on the second floor beside the George Washington statue, third stall.
There were also absurd accusations from Democrats that Boebert was seen giving terrorists tours of the Capitol.
It turns out the alleged terrorists were her family members attending her swearing in ceremony several days before the protest.
The decision by the committee not to investigate is significant because it is a bipartisan panel.
And the claims were baseless and vindictive.
