How wonderful that both parties were able to unite in celebrating the heroism of fallen veterans on Memorial Day. It’s too bad Mitch McConnell and senate Republicans blocked a bill to investigate the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
They chose instead to laugh in the face of Gladys Sicknick, the mother of fallen Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick. They believe it’s more important to prevent a Mexican from picking your strawberries then it is to investigate Donald Trump’s white supremacists beating a Capitol police officer with a fire extinguisher in an attempt to overthrow the government at his request.
This was the worst attack on the Capitol since the War of 1812 and the worst act of insurrection in United States since the Civil War. Why would Republicans not want to get to the bottom of such horrific violence?
