On Wednesday, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) sent out a tweet that quickly ricocheted back on her.
Boebert decided to quote Luke 8:17, which reads:
“For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.”
Was the Colorado Republican, who frequently owns herself on social media, making a reference to her alleged involvement in helping to plan the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol, which left five people dead?
On Sunday, Rolling Stone reported that Boebert and other House Republicans had been part of a larger conspiracy:
These two sources also helped plan a series of demonstrations that took place in multiple states around the country in the weeks between the election and the storming of the Capitol. According to these sources, multiple people associated with the March for Trump and Stop the Steal events that took place during this period communicated with members of Congress throughout this process.
Along with Greene, the conspiratorial pro-Trump Republican from Georgia who took office earlier this year, the pair both say the members who participated in these conversations or had top staffers join in included Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas).
Though Boebert denied the report or that she played any role in the Capitol riots, many Twitter users wondered if perhaps had just wandered into a classic Freudian slip. Others noted that there were other Bible verses which are much more applicable to her:
So you must be talking about the events of January 6.
And you are right.

Titus 1:16 “They claim to know God, but they deny him by what they do. They are detestable, disobedient, and unfit to do anything good”

So, is this passage some kind of cryptic message admitting your involvement with Jan 6th?

Proverbs 6:16-19 – For there are six things the Lord hates—no, seven: haughtiness, lying, murdering, plotting evil, eagerness to do wrong, a false witness, sowing discord among brothers.
Is your soul clean Rep? Think on it tonight…

Of course scripture in the mouth of the snake still sounds like hissing. https://t.co/OqxRXwUeLq
