New GOP congressman says his colleagues lied

Republican successor to retired libertarian Justin Amash, Peter Meijer (R-MI) told Reason that he blamed many of his Republican counterparts for the violence in the U.S. Capitol this week for misleading the rioters.

Meijer said, “You have been lied to. You have been misled. Some of my colleagues in Congress share responsibility for this. Many of them have collected donations from this Stop the Steal Grift. “

He added: “I don’t understand how you can look in the mirror and go to sleep at night without it being a burden on your conscience, I basically don’t. The only words missing from me are how some of them behaved in ways that are only knowingly and demonstrably wrong. And they know they are lying too. “
