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.

Leftist fake news

Remember Florida state data technician Rebecca Jones? She was given a friendly forum on numerous occasions on CNN and MSNBC because she was making accusations that she was fired for exposing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ plot to manipulate the state’s coronavirus numbers to make them look better than they were. She was treated as a heroic whistleblower and a martyr to a corrupt Republican regime.The liberal outlets loved her because she allowed them to negatively compare DeSantis to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Problem: Cuomo actually did what she accused DeSantis of, and DeSantis did not.

Charles C.W. Cooke at National Review Online dug deep into this story, and he declared that Jones is not a whistleblower, a data analyst or an epidemiologist: she’s a fabulist with a history of making wild, retaliatory false claims. These include calling police who came to her home to seize computers “Gestapo” sent by DeSantis, and claiming they pointed guns at her and her children. Bodycam video shows that nobody pointed any guns at anyone.

Jones was heavily promoted by Democrats and liberal media outlets, which helped her raise a large amount of money through various GoFundMe accounts, but Cooke reports that her claims were all a giant pile of lies. She responded that Cooke’s investigative piece on her is a “smear campaign,” but she didn’t elaborate on what he might have gotten wrong. If you’d like to read more, click the link.

Or you could just go on believing what CNN and MSNBC told you about her because after all, only people who watch conservative news sites believe disinformation.
