Must be consequences for elected leaders involved on January 6th


Vice President Kamala Harris said Friday on MSNBC’s The ReidOut that there must be consequences for everyone, including elected leaders, involved in the Jan. 6, 2021 riots in the US Capitol.

Moderator Joy Reid said: “Let’s talk about our democracy here because we struggle with our democracy. As we all know, there was an uprising, an attempted coup. I don’t think there is any other way to describe what happened last year. And as we get more information about what happened and who was behind it, we find out that there were members of Congress who were complicit. There were United States Senators. You are the President of the Senate as Vice President of the United States. What do you think the consequences should be for people like Ted Cruz, people like Josh Hawley, who will now be named as we learn more about those who actually put together the plan to overthrow our election?

Harris said: “You are absolutely correct, in my view, that this is about our democracy and trying to weaken its strength but also its legitimacy. And there are foreign actors trying, and then we have domestic threats, and that’s part of what we saw on January 6th. Of course, there must be consequences for this. That’s done in relation to the process, which is about looking for evidence of what actually happened and who the bad actors are, because of course they should pay a consequence and there should be accountability. Of course, in relation to elected leaders, to the extent that they were complicit in a crime, there should be some sort of answer.”
