Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) claimed on Thursday that the House of Representatives’ Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol’s first hearing, which will reveal the findings of the committee, is nothing more than a political ruse orchestrated by the “idiocy” of the progressive left.
The bipartisan panel, which was formed last summer, has interviewed over a thousand witnesses who have provided documents as well as thousands of hours of eyewitness testimony about what happened before, during, and after the violent insurgency that left five people dead and threatened American democracy. Hundreds of those involved in the disturbance have been detained and charged with various offences.
Cruz, on the other hand, feels the committee, its findings, and the six public hearings scheduled are all a ruse.
“Listen, I think your remark about clowns is quite unfair. It’s not fair to blame clowns for [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi’s [D-California] and the Democrats’ foolishness “Cruz raged on Newsmax, a conservative news organisation.
“This is theatre, after all. It’s all set up to be a theatrical production, even down to bringing in a Hollywood producer. This is similar to seeing the polished, propaganda machine that is the Democratic National Convention. I don’t want the DNC convention because I disagree with the views they’re promoting “Cruz went on. “That’s what this hearing will be, and the corrupt corporate media will tragically welcome it warmly and enthusiastically. This hearing, according to The New York Times, “is a chance for Democrats to reshape the midterm narrative.” For once, The New York Times got it wrong and reported the truth, admitting that this is all about politics. This is a marketing advertisement.”
