Major Missouri Paper Demands Senate Investigate Cruz And Hawley For Their Roles In “Sparking” Capitol Riot

From the editorial board of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Ten months after a group of Senate Democrats lodged ethics complaints into the conduct of Republican Sens. Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas regarding their roles in sparking the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, the Senate Ethics Committee has shown no sign of movement.

Both senators tell Politico they haven’t even been contacted by the committee. Jan. 6 wasn’t a fantasy; it was real, and the culpability of these two senators must be determined.

Hawley even had the nerve to give a glowering Senate floor speech later that night condemning the violence — an arsonist standing among the ashes. Hawley and Cruz have the right to defend themselves from the allegations — but so far, they haven’t even had to. The Ethics Committee should stop sitting on this.
