“Taking names: Dem Rep. Lofgren catalogs GOP colleagues’ election claims with a view toward discipline”

NBC News:

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., has released a detailed examination of the social media accounts of Republican House members who voted to overturn the 2020 election results to analyze what role they might have played in inciting the deadly violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

“Like former President [Donald] Trump, any elected member of Congress who aided and abetted the insurrection or incited the attack seriously threatened our democratic government,” Lofgren wrote in the prologue to her 1,939 page “social media review.”

“They would have betrayed their oath of office and would be implicated in the same constitutional provision cited in the article of impeachment” against Trump following the Capitol riot, she continued….

The report looked at posts between Nov. 3, 2020, and Jan. 31, 2021, “relevant to assessing the potential of Congress’ constitutional prerogatives and responsibilities, including actions pursuant to the 14th Amendment and/or House rules,” she wrote.

The document lists members in alphabetical order by state and focuses on posts that either cast doubt on the election results or implored people to “fight” for Trump.
