Rep. Zoe Lofgren has the receipts.
Late last month, the California Democrat released a 1,939 page report documenting the public statements and social media posts of Republican House members who voted against certifying the 2020 presidential election.
In a foreword to the report, Rep. Lofgren explained that it may lay the groundwork for possible disciplinary action against some of her GOP colleagues, including expulsion from Congress:
Like former President Trump, any elected Member of Congress who aided and abetted the insurrection or incited the attack seriously threatened our democratic government. They would have betrayed their oath of office and would be implicated in the same constitutional provision cited in the Article of Impeachment. That provision prohibits any person who has previously taken an oath as a member of Congress to support the Constitution but subsequently engaged in insurrection or rebellion from serving in Congress.
Rep. Lofgren is the chair of the House Administration Committee, which oversees security on the House side of the Capitol complex. Her report catalogues posts on Twitter, Facebook, Parler, and other social media sites made between November 3rd, 2020 and January 31st, 2021 “relevant to assessing the potential of Congress’ constitutional prerogatives and responsibilities, including actions pursuant to the 14th Amendment and/or House rules.”
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment prohibits citizens who have engaged in rebellion or insurrection against the state from holding public office.
One hundred and thirty-nine House Republicans objected to the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral win, although many made no relevant comments or public posts and are therefore not mentioned in the report.
One hundred and seventy-six pages of the report are dedicated to Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ). Another 123 pages focus on Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala). The section detailing the statements of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is 100 pages.
The report shows that Rep. Gosar had several interactions with Ali Alexander on Twitter, one of the main organizers of the “Stop the Steal” campaign.
Here are some of the social media posts in Rep. Lofgren’s report:
