Even with the evidence stacked up against them, Republicans are still holding on to the false portrayal of a Capitol riot stating that all that took place on that day was done peacefully despite their violent bid to overturn Joe Biden’s election success.

One Republican described the rioters as a “mob of misfits.” Another compared them to tourists. And a third Republican said all the investigation is a form of national harassment.
