Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) is denying any involvement with planning the January 6th rally that turned into a violent storming of the Capitol in an attempt to overthrow democracy.

Organizers of the event outed Brooks and several other House Republicans as being directly involved, according to a bombshell report by Rolling Stone.

But Brooks, who is being sued by Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) for inciting the violence that put lawmakers’ lives at risk, denied involvement and threw his staffers under the bus instead.

“I don’t know if my staff did… but if they did I’d be proud of them for helping to put together a rally lawful under the First Amendment at the Ellipse to protest voter fraud and election theft,” he said.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) also denied involvement, albeit moronically as usual while attacking the media and unnamed sources just like Donald Trump often did during his presidency.

Brooks has already admitted that he coordinated with the White House on his own speech to the crowd that day, which incited violence. He even confessed that he wore body armor during his speech in preparation for violence.

Clearly, Brooks not only helped to organize the event that day, he knew what might happen and played a part in inciting what did happen. The House 1/6 Committee must subpoena Brooks and his co-conspirators in the Republican caucus, and the Justice Department needs to investigate and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. This attack against the United States and our Constitution must not go unpunished. And those who aided the insurrectionists from inside Congress should pay harsher consequences.
