The responsibility for the storming of the Capitol today lies entirely at the feet of Sen. Ron Johnson, Sen. Ted Cruz and at the feet of their lying leader, Donald Trump.

This is the logical conclusion of four years of lies but especially the logical conclusion of so callously and publicly doubting the authenticity of the November election.

Sen. Johnson held hearings asking for evidence (which was not presented) of fraud, saying "this is not dangerous." Does he still think fanning those flames is not dangerous?

To publicly say, (even today!) that the election was stolen has incited the kind of behavior not seen in the Capitol since 1814! Two hundred years since the last armed insurrection and invasion of the Capitol, and the responsibility goes to those who still deliberately mislead with proclamations of their landslide victory rather than humbly admitting loss.

Stand up and tell people the truth, Sen. Johnson: Donald Trump lost. Democracy lives in a peaceful transition of power!

Shame on you if you do any less, if you maintain the charade that incites violent insurrection!
