Riot Video Contradicts GOP Rep. Andrew Clyde's Denial Of Capitol Riot

The Georgia congressman said the insurrection is “a bold-faced lie” and likened the Jan. 6 attack to “a normal tourist visit.” The video tells another story.

Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) attempted to falsely claim at a hearing Wednesday that the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol never happened ― as if there were no video proof.

The Georgia congressman made his comments during a House Oversight Committee hearing on what went wrong in police preparations before the Capitol riot.

“Let me be clear: There was no insurrection,” Clyde said. “And to call it an insurrection, in my opinion, is a bold-faced lie.”

Clyde also claimed that video taken during the insurrection looked like “a normal tourist visit,” even though five people died and more than 100 police officers were injured.

Clyde says he will take magnetometer fine matter to federal court
Georgia Republican says rule is in violation of the Constitution and ‘meritless’

Rep. Andrew Clyde says he will go to federal court to fight $15,000 in fines he incurred for dodging security screening at the entrance to the House floor.

On Monday, the House Ethics Committee announced it upheld both fines the Georgia Republican was assessed for eluding the magnetometers. Under a rule adopted by the chamber in February, a member who fails to complete security screening is fined $5,000 on the first instance and $10,000 for subsequent offenses.

Clyde was cited for “deliberately” avoiding security screening by the Capitol Police on two occasions, the first on Feb. 5 and the second on Feb. 8, according to the Ethics panel. Acting House Sergeant-at-Arms Timothy P. Blodgett was tasked with imposing the fine.

“While my team and I continue to await an announcement of a fine levied on the Speaker, we are preparing for the next stage of this fight,” Clyde said Monday in a statement announcing his intentions. “I will take my case to federal court where I am confident justice will be served.”

2. They need to lock these republikkklans in a room and show them the videos taken from police

Cams. Force them like the guy in clockwork orange.

And then to say these protesters were not mf45 supporters while seeing all those reds hats and mf45 clothing is insane.

4. Clyde is projecting...

Like a typical conservative.

HE is the one pushing a bold faced lie by trying to call the very real insurrection anything else.

Lying is all they have.

9. He'd better never need a cab, because they won't believe him when he gives them his destination.

His doctor won't believe him when he claims he has pain in his heart or head, etc.

Cops won't come if he claims he needs help in a 911 call.

ETC.

6. I just can't help wondering

How lying to the American people differs from lying to law enforcement. Because in both instances power is derived from the people. They are exercising the duties of their office in the name of the people. One elicits more lies, and lies baptized in hypocrisy, while the other is a crime.

8. I would say I was stunned by this but no

Republicans are deliberately fighting with each other for the chance to fellate the tiny dicked one.

This is psychotic.

14. Why is this jackwagon wearing desert combat boots with his suit?

Does he think that if he wears them, people will think he served in the Armed Forces?
Near as I can determine, he never served our nation in the military.

15. I think he is using that photo op for his voters to show he's going to "kick ass" as a Congressman.

It's so damned stupid, but very much the kind of mindless ugliness we've come to expect from right-wingers.

Remember Nancy Sinatra's embarrassingly stupid song saying "These boots are going to walk all over you."

20. If he ever feels threatened and calls the Capitol Hill police, they should transfer his call to the

tour guides.

Yup, you'll be out $15,000.
