The Pelosi-left thought the melodramatic appearances by four police officers would boost support for the J6 committee investigation of the riot. The not-an-insurrection did become violent by a small number of the people present. We do not condone the violence or any attacks on police. However, the performance of the four officers and especially, that of Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, didn’t help their cause. In fact, it appears to have hurt. (watch the clip below)
Officer Hodges repeatedly called the mob who breached the Capitol building “terrorists.”
Officer Dunn cried as he testified that rioters had called him racial slurs, NPR reported. “No one had ever, ever called me a n—-er while wearing the uniform of a Capitol Police officer,” he told the committee. Since there is no video of it, people don’t believe him. This event had nothing to do with race.
Officer Fanone has done countless media appearances since the Capitol riot and made headlines after he demanded to meet with GOP Congressional leadership. He said he “went to Hell and back,” and slammed the table awkwardly during the hearing. The angry man was rude to the politicians.
Officer Dunn, who has posed with Speaker Pelosi, and Officer Gonell were crying.
THE POLLS SHOW IT DIDN’T WORK
Only 49 percent of voters who were polled said they actually watched part or all of the hearing on July 27.
And among voters from all parties, only 53 percent support the investigation, which was down from 66 percent who said they supported it in June, and 58 percent who said they supported it one week before the hearing, the New York Post reported.
It was a pathetic partisan show.
