And the cultists continue to lap it up:
Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson falsely claimed there was no violence on the Senate side of the US Capitol during the January 6 insurrection, the latest in his continued attempts to downplay the severity of the attack. Johnson described the events of January 6 to a group of conservative Wisconsin residents at a local political event on Saturday and falsely stated the rioters were more active on the House side of the Capitol than the Senate side.
Security cameras and videos from witnesses showed insurrectionists broke windows on the Senate side of the Capitol and stormed through the halls near the Senate chamber shortly after. One video showed Capitol Police officer Eugene Goodman confronting protesters just outside the Senate chamber and leading them away from the room while senators were sheltering in place inside.
Read the full article. “There was much more violence on the House side. There was no violence on the Senate side, in terms of the chamber.”

Why is Ron Johnson so invested in lying about this? Who picks an *armed insurrection* as the hill to die on politically?
And as ever, my *real* question is, “What the hell is wrong with Ron Johnson? What’s his *deal*?”https://t.co/OFlCQn9dbk
