Florida Senator Marco Rubio spoke with Fox News’ Sean Hannity Wednesday night about the prime time Jan 6th special Democrats are having produced to epic proportions; Rubio says Americans won’t tune in to watch this garbage.
“From day one, I have said that if people committed crimes on that day, they should be prosecuted and convicted by a jury. And that’s what’s happening,” he added.
According to The Hill, “When asked what the Jan. 6 hearing should examine, he said ‘it would be a review of why didn’t Capitol Police, the sergeant at arms take advantage of these resources that were available? That’s what you would be focused on. But they’re not going to be focused on that.’”
Rubio blasted Pelosi and her fellow Dems for hiring of a veteran ABC News producer to assist with the hearing.
“They moved this thing to prime time. They hired a producer to put it on. This is not a fact-finding mission. This is a two-hour free documentary sponsored by virtually every major network in America — except for [Fox News] — that’s willing to give it airtime,” he said.

From The Hill…
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot plans to use its first prime-time hearing to put former President Trump at the center of the insurrection and the attempt to keep him in power.
Republicans have blasted the hearing and promised “counterprogramming”to push back on its narrative.
House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) told Fox News that she and her colleagues were “pushing back against lame-duck Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi’s sham political witch hunt.”
