Sorry, as I listen to Capitol Police officers talk about the insurrection—being attacked by hammers, crushed by rioters, losing eyes—I keep coming back to Rep. Andrew Clyde comparing it to a "normal tourist visit" and the absolute depravity it'd take to make that statement.
Andrew Clyde — of “normal tourist visit” fame — has found out a way to evade the House’s maskless fines. He “went to payroll and had his federal withholding raised to $11,284 a month. So he only gets $1 of pay,” one of his colleagues tells @MZanona https://t.co/i9MOv8x663
Wild exchange between Jamie Raskin and Andrew Clyde during rules committee meeting just now. Raskin asked Clyde if he still stood by his statement calling 1/6 "normal tourist visit" and read out Clyde's entire statement.
Clyde: "I stand by that exact statement as I said it.”
