    In a statement released on Thursday, Arizona Republican Congressman Andy Biggs condemned political violence while blasting the false narrative put forward by Democrats concerning what took place.

    “I condemn political violence, as I always have, including violence that took place on January 6, 2021,” he began. “Any act or speech that impedes constructive debate on the important issues facing our nation is a waste.”

    “But the Democrats’ and the media’s one-sided and misleading narrative about the events, causes, and implications of that day are more detrimental to our republic than the day itself,” he added.

    He then accused the “illegitimate” House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riots of neglecting its very purpose while politicizing the event.

    “Thus far, the illegitimate Committee created by Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats to ostensibly investigate the events of January 6, has done nothing but attack President Trump and his supporters,” he said.

    Claiming a “serious and legitimate inquiry” would have released the many hours of security footage from within the Capitol complex to reveal what actually occurred, Biggs suggested a professional committee would consider the following:

    [W]hy was there a lack of training and equipment for law enforcement?

    What role did Speaker Pelosi play in preventing law enforcement from having adequate personnel and material to protect the Capitol?

    Did paid federal law enforcement agents provoke the riot?

    However, according to Biggs, the committee is merely attempting to depict Republicans as “violent mobster[s],” deem questioning an election “treasonous” (though Democrats have done the same), and prove that “secure” elections can only be the product of a “federalized” constitutional system of elections with Democrats “given control over every mechanism of it.”

    Biggs, who serves as chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, concluded by stating there is “no place for political violence in our society” nor for the “lies, cover ups, and witch hunts” of the Democrats.

    “Americans should ignore this group of unimpressive, hateful, Trump-hating loons,” he added.

    Biggs’ statement came as Democrats use the January 6 riot to delegitimize former President Donald Trump and his agenda, while warning that American democracy is at stake.

    In their speeches marking the first anniversary of the January 6 protests Thursday, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris demanded the Senate pass legislation to federalize American elections.

    Vice President Harris also compared the event to the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941 and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
