“To call what happened on Jan. 6 an ‘armed insurrection,” I just think is inaccurate,” Sen. Ron Johnson says at Milwaukee Rotary Club just now.

Johnson argued few weapons were confiscated but protesters “did teach us how you can use a flag pole”

I hate to say it, but I agree with him.

The events of Jan. 6, 2021 were not an armed insurrection.

They were a failed coup attempt.

Ron Johnson admits 'one hour' involvement in election plot after claiming it was just 'seconds'

David Edwards
October 04, 2022


Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) reportedly admitted that his involvement in a plot to overthrow the 2020 election spanned one hour after previously claiming it only lasted a "couple of seconds."

Following the election, Johnson said that he was asked to give an alternate slate of electors to then-Vice President Mike Pence in an effort to give the presidency to then-President Donald Trump.

"I had virtually no involvement," the senator told a local reporter last month. "Literally, my involvement lasted seconds, OK?"

But on Tuesday, Johnson told NBC News correspondent Natasha Korecki that his involvement lasted "one hour."

"We turned over the texts," he insisted. "I think the [Jan. 6 Committee] smeared me. They had the full text between my chief of staff and that White House aide. They didn't release the full text. It shows the vice president or his staff was expecting these things, was supposed to get them through the post office. Jan. 6 Committee didn't release those."

Watch the video clip below.

This is a shift in language

In early 2021, Sen. Johnson said about Jan 6: "this didn't seem like an armed insurrection to me"

Today: "There weren't thousands of armed insurrectionists"

The audience laughs at him 😬
Lots more clips of the debate on Acyn's Twitter, if you are interested.

Republicans always accusing their opponent of what they're guilty of. Johnson turned against America when he was involved in the fake electors scam. Barnes really has some zingers

Sen.
@RonJohnsonWI
doesn't give a damn about the blue. He doesn't give a damn about the Constitution. He doesn't give a damn about protecting your rights. Those who HONOR their oath are here to tell you—they will never vote for Ron Johnson. He doesn't deserve anyone's vote.#WIsen

Be very, very afraid -- Ron Johnson tells John Solomon that seniors are telling him they are afraid to leave their homes to get their prescription drugs.

Then it's nice that so many pharmacies are now offering delivery of medications and most insurance plans offer mail delivery options that are often less expensive than picking it up locally.

Just got eye drops delivered yesterday. (Not because I'm afraid to go out.)
