Mo Brooks, a pro-Trump Republican Congressman from Alabama, took to Twitter to lie to his followers by claiming that the Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol were actually left-wing protestors disguised as Trump supporters.

“HOUSE RECESSSED UNTIL ORDER & SAFETY CAN BE ASSURED. Rumor: ANTIFA fascists in backwards MAGA hats. Time will tell what truth is. Capitol Police Announcement: Capitol breach. Locked down! DO NOT LEAVE CHAMBER!” he tweeted.

He added: “Instructions hollered: Stay in place in Chamber until Capitol secure! Apparently, rioters overwhelmed Capitol Police. Hollered demonstration in balcony! Capitol Police: if intruders, hide behind chairs.”

Brooks himself provoked violence at a pro-Trump event.

“Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass,” Brooks said at a pro-Trump rally, prior to the outbreak of violence.
