The disturbing tweets from GOPers who wouldn't accept Biden's win

What should happen if the public words and actions of members of Congress helped contribute to the attack on the US Capitol on January 6?

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif), has compiled pieces of the publicly available social media postings made by those representatives who voted to deny Americans their choice of president; they did this even after a riotous mob overran the Capitol just hours earlier. Her nearly 2,000-page report, which has been online for a week, is both a trove of documentation and a steaming electronic landfill of fetid lies and incitement.

Federal prosecutors have already charged more than 300 people in connection with the violent assault that sought to keep Congress from certifying Joe Biden's electoral victory. But it was Republican politicians who also helped fuel the fire promoting the Big Lie, the false claim that former President Donald Trump was the real winner; a lie so pernicious that it still infects the country, especially since Trump and his friends are still spreading it.

It represents an ongoing threat to the health of US democracy. The crisis of January 6 has not ended.
