Quoted @ryanobles

While some House Republicans attempt to re-write the history of what happened on January 6th... one Senate Republican strongly disagrees. @LisaMurkowski tells @mkraju she's "offended" by the idea that lawmakers would downplay the violence of that day. https://t.co/5uwlNLg6Cf

“I'm offended by that,” Murkowski told me when asked about downplaying Jan. 6 and comparing it to a tour, going further than House R leaders. “We got to get beyond that rhetoric and acknowledge that what happened were acts of aggression and destruction towards an institution.” https://t.co/2yKV7fAL0O

"You have to judge people based on their actions," Cheney says of McCarthy. Regarding their actions after the riot, Cheney says: "I think the approach that Leader McConnell took is what we should have done on our side -- and that's not what we've done on our side."

Cheney tells @jaketapper she had "legitimate concerns" with McCarthy over election rhetoric and "I disagree with the way he's led the conference" Also seems to suggest she doesn't have confidence that if McCarthy were speaker he would have allowed certification to go forward

Cheney tells @jaketapper she would have voted for Chip Roy today. "I think it's important for us to have people in leadership who are conservative, and I think it's also really important for us to have people in leadership who are committed to the truth and the Constitution."

Herschel Walker is getting closer to a decision on whether he'll run for #GAsen, per Rep. Buddy Carter. "He has told me -- I've had a number of conversations with him -- and he has told me it will be around the first of the summer," Carter told me. Trump wants Walker to run.

Gohmert downplaying Jan. 6 attack "There's no evidence this was an armed insurrection" Says no firearms confiscated, ignoring the other weapons that were used and confiscated "There have been things worse than" an event with people "without any firearms coming into a building"

What Gohmert is saying is flat out wrong. I personally spoke to Capitol Police officers who told me they pulled guns off rioters who had breached the Capitol on Jan. 6. I expect more details about how many firearms/what kinds of firearms would come out in the 1/6 investigation https://t.co/tZ6uBgGJvB
