Has released a scattered report describing social media posts from Republican lawmakers who voted against certifying the college election results of the 2020 presidential election.
The nearly 2,000-page report documents posts on social media platforms just before the November 3 election and after the January 6 uprising on Capitol Hill.
The report underscores the lack of trust between Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill, as critics say questions questioning the credibility of the November election helped fuel the deadly uprising in January.
Apparently, federal investigators are also investigating communications between lawmakers and the rebels before the uprising.
Lofgren, chair of the House Administration Committee, said in a forwarding to the report that she released it as part of an investigation mission and suggested that penalties may be due to some of the Republicans̵

They would have betrayed their office and would be implicated in the same constitutional provision quoted in the indictment article, “she wrote. This provision prohibits any person who has previously taken an oath as a member of Congress from supporting the Constitution but subsequently engaged in rebellion or rebellion from serving in Congress. “
“Any appropriate disciplinary action is not only a matter of the Constitution and the law, but also of the actual,” Lofgren continued. “Many of former President Trump’s false statements were made in very public settings. Had members made similar public statements in the weeks and months before the January 6 attack?
“Statements readily available in the public arena may be part of any consideration of the constitutional powers and responsibilities of Congress.”
The report covers the positions of 120 House Republicans, including several Trump allies.
In a highlighted comment, Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), President of the House Freedom Caucus Hardline, tweeted on November 5: from state and local officials. ”

Brooks was pioneering in the House’s efforts to object to the Electoral College results.
