Rep. Crawford Statement on Anniversary of January 6th

1/6/2022

Washington  Today, Representative Rick Crawford (AR-01) released the following statement in recognition of the anniversary of January 6th.

“As I said on January 6, 2021, I oppose violence. Period. It doesn’t matter who riots or loots, it should be prosecuted. That’s why I supported a real bi-partisan commission that would investigate January 6th specifically identifying those responsible for the destruction, but also the security lapses that rendered the United States Capitol completely unprepared. In addition, we should not turn a blind eye to the extensive political violence that occurred throughout America over the preceding summer. And speaking of attacks on Congress, the violence on June 14, 2017 seems to have disappeared down the memory hole. You can bet that Whip Steve Scalise and the other Republicans that were targeted by a politically motivated violent extremist that day haven’t forgotten. Yet Speaker Pelosi’s Rules Committee blocked an amendment to the January 6 Commission bill that would have expanded the proposed authority to include the incident that took place on June 14, 2017 – incidentally introduced by Congressman Brad Wenstrup, the Army surgeon who saved Whip Scalise’s life after having been gunned down that fateful day. Choosing to investigate selectively is partisan, divisive and contrary to the pledge that President Biden made to bring our country together.”
