Jayapal: Republicans Denying Capitol Riot Is ‘Biggest Threat to Our National Security’

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said on this week’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” that Republicans who deny the severity of the riot inside the U.S. Capitol building on January 6 was “the biggest threat to our national security and our democracy that we’re facing now.”

Capehart said, “Your reaction to statements that were made durning hearings early last week about the January 6 insurrection?”

Referencing Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) saying last week at a House Oversight Committee hearing that some people inside the Capitol behaved as if they were on “a normal tourist visit,” Capehart said, “I can’t remember a particular member of Congress who said it was no big deal, it was like any old other day of  people taking tours of the Capitol.”
