House Democrats have been thundering for months about how they want serious repercussions for their House colleagues over the January 6th violence in the Capitol. Well, they might get their wish:
The Daily Caller reports that a group of House Republicans has filed a formal complaint with the House Ethics Committee against more than two dozen Democrats who made unsubstantiated accusations that Republican members led suspicious groups on “reconnaissance” tours in preparation for the riot. The complaint mentions a letter from New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill and 33 other Democrats to the Capitol Police, requesting an investigation of these allegations. The Democrats have never been able to provide any evidence to back up the claims, and the Capitol Police never responded to them.
I know what you’re thinking: asking a “House Ethics Committee” that’s run by Democrats to investigate an ethics complaint against Democrats will result in more layers of hilarious irony that you’d find in a rerun of “Seinfeld.” But at least the Democrats are finally getting what they asked for.
