A Republican state legislator who attended the Jan. 6 insurrection and pushes the lie that the 2020 election was stolen is now helping lead the Michigan House Republicans’ campaign committee, raising concerns from a democracy expert who called the appointment “a warning bell” for voters.
A Michigan man was sentenced on Friday to five years in federal prison for his role in the US Capitol attack by a mob that disrupted Congress from certifying President Joe Biden's 2020 electoral victory.
“You know, I don’t f-ing care that they have weapons. They’re not here to hurt me. Take the f-ing mags away. Let my people in. They can march to the Capitol from here. Let the people in. Take the f-ing mags away,” Trump said on Jan. 6, according to aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony.
