Gripping, heart-wrenching testimony

Today, in the first hearing of the U.S. House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, four officers finally had the chance to officially testify before the nation about what happened to them on that terrible day.

As the New York Times reported a few minutes ago:

One officer described how rioters attempted to gouge out his eye and called him a traitor as they sought to invade the Capitol.

Another told of being smashed in a doorway and nearly crushed as he heard guttural screams of pain around him from fellow officers.

A third said he was beaten unconscious and struck repeatedly with a Taser as he pleaded with the mob, "I have kids."

A fourth relayed how he was called a racist slur over and over again.

And that's just a fraction of what happened.

Let's be clear: most Republicans in Congress are turning their backs on law enforcement by refusing to investigate what role Donald Trump and his allies played in fomenting an insurrection that led to the death of a Capitol Police officer and injuries to at least 140 more.

The only Republicans on the panel were the two appointed by Speaker Pelosi — after Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy chose to appoint three Congressman who sided with the mob and voted to invalidate the 2020 election results.

These politicians claim to believe in law-and-order and that they stand with our officers in uniform. I'm sorry, but you can't claim to stand up for law enforcement and then turn a blind eye to this horrific attack.

Here at Democrats Serve, we are holding these pro-insurrection Republicans accountable. Will you join us and make a donation to help defeat them in 2022?
