On Thursday night, the Jan. 6 committee performed beautiful footage of Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) working away from a mob of pro-Trump vigilantes that he was seen riling up simply hours earlier.
Regardless of the clip clearly displaying the Republican lawmaker on the run, almost 24 hours later, he pledged to a bunch of younger conservative activists that he wouldn’t “run” away from a battle.
“Hey, hear, I do know what I’m speaking about as a result of I had them do it to me,” he proudly declared at Turning Level USA’s summer time convention in Tampa, Florida, on Friday night, referring to being referred to as a “traitor” over pushing for “election integrity.” “I objected on Jan 6 final 12 months to the state of Pennsylvania,” he boasted.
“And I simply wish to say to all of these liberals on the market and the liberal media, simply in case you haven’t gotten the message but, I don’t remorse it,” Hawley continued. “And I’m not backing down. I’m not gonna apologize, I’m not gonna cower, I’m not gonna run from you.”
“I’m not gonna bend the knee,” he concluded.
The remarks come as each Hawley and former President Donald Trump try and push again on the bombshell Jan. 6 listening to.
Late Thursday evening, Trump had a late-night meltdown on his social media web site, Reality Social.
“I had an election Rigged and Stolen from me, and our Nation. The USA goes to Hell,” he fumed after midnight. “Am I alleged to be pleased?”
