Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC) live with Wolf Blitzer on CNN Jan. 17th, flipped in real-time and called for the investigation of true Republican Senators who stood for the Constitution. During Blitzer’s “Situation Room” Mace stunned conservatives and delighted leftists by stating that several Congressmen and Senators “need to be investigated and held accountable to the fullest extent of the law”.
The Congresswoman was asked by Blitzer if she felt “Do you think these senators, for example, should face consequences for their role– and maybe some members, Republican members of the house of Representatives- should face consequences for stirring up these rioters?” In a true mic-drop moment Mace replied,
“I do. And I think that any person of any party in any chamber should be held accountable, they should be investigated to the fullest extent of the law.”
Repeating Democrat’s Outright LIES
Even more disconcertingly, unheeded, Mace then proceeded to throw fellow Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) under the bus, seemingly calling for investigation of thoroughly debunked claims that she was somehow seeking to aid those breaching the Capitol in locating Speaker Pelosi.
“We also understand, allegedly, there was a member of Congress who was also live-tweeting the whereabouts of the Speaker of the House, and I don’t care how much you disagree with Nancy Pelosi, because I am quite conservative, and I disagree with her plenty of times, but that’s not a reason to live-tweet her location when the Capitol doors are being breached and we’re stormed and there’s a violent riot that killed five people.”
Doubling Down on the “Investigation” Next Day
On January 18th in an interview with The Hill, Mace doubled-down,
“There has to be some reconciliation within our party to recognize that number one: we have a problem in this country even within our own party, number two: that we need to take responsibility for our words and our actions and three: we need to stop being part of the problem and start being part of the solution.”
Mace particularly took issue with QAnon supporters seeming to lay blame for the Capitol Breach at their feet, she continued. “No more QAnon conspiracy theorists, those days are gone, that is behind us. And we need to make sure that QAnon conspiracy theorists don’t lead us into another Constitutional Crisis in the future. It is imperative that we lead ourselves out of this, that we heal our nation. And that starts with Joe Biden being sworn in later this week. And that we start to find ways that we can start working together as a nation.”
