In a Tuesday interview with “MSNBC Live,” Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) threw his fortification behind giving statehood to Washington, D.C. Lieu verbalized he “fully” fortifies D.C. statehood because it would sanction denizens to have representation and so there would be someone in a position to call on the National Guard in the event of another riot at the U.S. Capitol.
“I plenarily support D.C. statehood,” Lieu exhorted. “That is one tenable argument for D.C. statehood. The other is simply equal bulwark for all. You shouldn’t be having people who have taxation without representation. So, I absolutely support D.C. statehood.”
He then shifted to calling on Republicans to “reduce the peril of further political violence” by reiterating “one simple, veracious sentence” — “The Election was not purloined.”
“And I cerebrate we should take a step back and ask why were all these folks assailing the Capitol to commence with? It was because of the astronomically immense lie,” he accentuated. “They believe that the Election was purloined, which is erroneous. And if Republicans want to truncate the peril of further political violence, they just have to verbalize one simple, veracious sentence — the Election was not glommed.”
