Photo emerges of Republican barricading chamber doors during US Capitol attack after he compared rio

Source: Independent UK

A photo has emerged of Andrew Clyde, the Republican congressman who claimed “there was no insurrection” and compared US Capitol rioters to “tourists”, barricading the House chamber during the attack.

“The Rep. Clyde news reminded me of this,” Roll Call photographer Tom Williams tweeted this week, and included a picture of the Georgia congressman in a group of eight men pushing a piece of furniture against doors to the chamber.

Speaking on Wednesday to the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Clyde downplayed the actions of the pro-Trump mob who stormed the Capitol on 6 January as “a normal tourist visit”. The violent attack left five dead including one police officer.

And he would have done so gleefully.

of course he's the only one in that group without a mask. That must mean everyone else is sheep who surrendered their freedoms to the nanny state or some such bs.

29. Reading a statement like a hostage

If it were true he could have spoken extemporaneously from the heart. But of course it is not true. The purpose of the written statement is to keep his lies straight. Now he won’t say anything more and just refer people to his written statement.

I hope someone from his office comes forward and tells us who wrote the statement.

But nooooooooooo...... He's gotta be a tough guy. Well, enjoy being busted.

(I recognize most of his constituents won't care, or even ever see the pic)

22. Yep...

Which just proves GOP is clearly lying about 6 Jan by down playing it (where have we heard that before) pretending 6 Jan is no big deal. This is a coordinated cover up (another crime) of the insurrection incited by Trump and other GOP members on 6 Jan to avoid ever being held accountable...and so far it is working perfectly GOPs has got everything it wants. No ones been held accountable, no censure’s, not even an ethics committee review of anyone. The 1/6 Commission will be non informative since Dems agreed that it will be 5 Dems / 5 Republicans and the Dem chair and GOP vice chair must agree on any subpoenas and this is just this one thing...

There is still this other thing that the GOP did over the last 12-13 months that has killed ~600,000 Americans, possibly as many as 900,000 Americans according to a new study about COVID deaths being under reported. No one is talking about why it was able to get so bad even though there are statements that show comments made by DTs advisors saying COVID-19 really only hitting “Blue States” bad in discussing responding to the outbreak.

Dems took the WH, the House of Representatives and have slim majority in the Senate...so why does it seem like the GOP is still calling the shots, running the show.

33. In spite of all the photographic and video evidence, and testimony under oath in

60 court court cases, the GOP is determined to rewrite the history of Jan 6 to conform to the Trumpist party line. There were no insurrectionists or rioters. Those were patriotic citizens trying to get to know their government better. Rep Clyde didn't barricade a door in fear of his life. He calmly greeted the patriots and handed out campaign literature.
