Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) went on MSNBC this week to say that Republicans “would rather defend traitors and spread lies” than defend democracy because they sided with former President Donald Trump over what she deemed to be “truth.”
Duckworth Sounds Off
“I’m not surprised that Republican leaders in both the House and the Senate are looking to block the bipartisan commission to look into what happened that day,” she said. “I mean its bipartisan. Republicans had input into it. I hope they listen to Officer Sicknick’s mom. I really really do, but I would not be surprised if they don’t.”
“This may be a personal problem,” said anchor Nicolle Wallace. “I’m still surprised when Kevin McCarthy sent his guy in to negotiate and got everything. McCarthy wanted equal representation.”
“Both parties had to approve of subpoenas. I will admit to being surprised that Republicans walked away from what leadership asked them to negotiate,” she added. “Why are you not surprised?”
“Time and time again, they chose to stand with Donald Trump and his lies,” Duckworth replied. “Time and again, given the opportunity to do so, and when push comes to shove, they fold and stand with Donald Trump. They have shown rather choose Donald Trump over the truth.”
“They would rather defend traitors and spread lies than defend our democracy. I wish I could say I was surprised, but they have done this time and again,” she continued. “When push comes to shove, they choose Donald Trump over our democracy.”

“I think he is,” Jordan told host Sean Hannity when asked if Trump will run. “Every time I speak to him, it — he says that he wants to run. He plans to run, I think, but he hasn’t fully committed that yet. But I certainly hope he does because no president has done more of what he said he would do than President Trump. Best president I think we’ve ever had:”
“Keeping his word, doing what he said, doing what he was elected to do,” he continued. “That’s the kind of individual we need in the White House, and that’s the kind of individual that our adversaries respected because they knew he was putting America’s interests first and standing strong for the principles that matter.”
