My email today to Rep Debbie Dingle, before seeing this thread:
"OK. You have helped divide this country further by supporting a frivolous and purely political action. Did you actually check any facts? How about this:
A timeline ...shows that Trump was still giving a speech to a large crowd of supporters when rioters began efforts to enter the Capitol building. His speech to the crowd reiterated his allegations about election irregularities and fraud, and his dissatisfaction with the media and several lawmakers. Although he encouraged supporters to “make your voices heard” at the planned protest at the Capitol, he emphasized the need for the protest to be peaceful.
And, where was all of the indignation and blather during an entire summer of riots, looting, burning, even assults on police and even murder. Your silence was deafening!
Meantime, America is still suffering. People's lives destroyed. Businesses either destroyed by rioters or closed forever because of the shutdowns.
Today, a frivolous, childish, impudent group that talks of "hallowed halls" or "scared buildings" and world shame of January 6, further shame the country without care to impeach President Trump. What a cheap shot!
I look for leadership in a person supposed to be a leader. You have miserably failed!"
