United States Senator Ron Johnson wonders if, possibly, maybe, perhaps it is Nancy Pelosi who is responsible for the Capitol riot. He doesn’t have any proof for this contention, and after all, he’s only askin’ questions, so don’t ask Johnson for substantiation:
“Is this another diversionary operation? Is this meant to deflect away from potentially what the speaker knew and when she knew it? I don’t know, but I’m suspicious.”
Johnson is suspicious in the way way that the crackpots are suspicious that Americans landed on the moon or that extraterrestrials built the pyramids. Spoiler: Americans did; extraterrestrials didn’t.
The only diversionary operation here is Johnson’s question. Like O.J. Simpson’s insistence on looking for the ‘real killer,’ Johnson would do better to look close to home to find those responsible for causing or inciting violence and loss.
As close as nearest mirror.
