MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is at it again, berating Republicans for trying to be the voice of reason during a national crisis. Scarborough mocked the idea of GOP lawmakers visiting the Capitol Riot suspects who are being detained in Washington D.C. to assess the jail conditions. “They’re idiots who are doing what is not in the best interest of their party, not in the best interest of democracy, not in the best interest of this country” opined Scarborough.
The J6 Committee LIED to America. @TuckerCarlson is revealing the truth.
They must be held accountable.

Led by the ever-incredible Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republicans were simply trying to shed some light on the mistreatment of the January 6th suspects. The trip was organized by James Comer (R-KY) of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee. Greene believes that the suspects are being treated like prisoners of war and that they are being held in solitary confinement for almost 23 hours and the ability to see their loved ones is being curtailed deliberately. The toilets are also not working, which is a gross violation of human rights.

However, Joe Scarborough clearly implied that the Republicans were “feeding any Democrat, just feeding the President of the United States, just feeding anyone who wants it, more material on this terrible, terrible day in American history” and treating the Republican suspects as though they were victims. Scarborough considers their act of getting to the bottom of the matter as “hurting their own party” and “hurting the conservative cause.”
The Republicans need to continue their fight to investigate the ones framing them for the riot, including the Durham investigation. Every day, more and more examples show that the Democrats are not interested in finding the truth, but instead are representing their corrupt party’s interests. Republicans should keep fighting to ensure that their rights are upheld and not trampled on. Scarborough should stop being such a biased hack and work for the good of the country instead of his Democratic party overlords.
