THE DAILY REFORMER (NEW YORK, UNITED STATES)
Speaking to 1130 WISN radio talk show Monday on Monday, Senator Ron Johnson said the January 6th U.S. Capitol Riot “didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me.”
Johnson told host Jay Weber “the group of people that supported Trump, the hundreds of thousands of people who attended those Trump rallies, those are the people that love this country.”
“They never would have done what happened on Jan. 6” he added. “That is a group of people that love freedom; that’s a group of people we need to unify and keep on our side.”
“When you hear the word ‘armed,’ don’t you think of firearms?” Johnson asked.
“Here’s the questions I would have liked to ask — how many firearms were confiscated? How many shots were fired? I’m only aware of one, and I’ll defend that law enforcement officer for taking that shot, it was a tragedy, but I think there was only one.”
“If that was a planned armed insurrection, man, you had really a bunch of idiots,” he added.
