George Bush Calls For Expulsion Of GOP Leaders After Trump Fans Storm The Capitol

Published

Former President George W. Bush released a statement following the riots at the U.S. Capitol. Bush condemned the incident as “insurrection” — and, without mentioning the GOP by name, placed responsibility on their leaders for inflaming tensions.

“I am appalled by the reckless behavior of some political leaders since the election and by the lack of respect shown today for our institutions, our traditions, and our law enforcement,” wrote Bush. “The violent assault on the capitol and disruption of a constitutionally mandated meeting of Congress was undertaken by people whose passions have been inflamed by falsehoods and false hopes. Insurrection could do grave damage to our nation and the reputation of the United States of America.”

“It is the fundamental responsibility of every patriotic citizen to support the rule of law,” concluded Bush. “To those who are disappointed in the results of the election, our country is more important than the politics of the moment. Let the officials elected by the people fulfill their duties and represent our voices in peace and safety.”
