McConnell Calls Jan. 6 a “Violent Insurrection” and Says RNC Shouldn’t Have Censured Cheney, Kinzinger (VIDEO)

Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) on Tuesday called January 6 a “violent insurrection” and said the RNC shouldn’t have censured Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.

Last week the RNC voted to censure RINO Reps Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for sitting on the January 6 panel.

The censure resolution alleged Cheney and Kinzinger were “participating in a Democrat-led persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.”

Mitt Romney threw a fit last week after the RNC censured the two RINOs.

On Tuesday, McConnell joined Romney and said the RNC had no business “singling out members of our party who may have different views from the majority.”

McConnell also took issue with the RNC’s claim January 6 was “legitimate political discourse.”

“We all were here. We saw what happened,” McConnell said in response to a question from CNN’s Manu Raju. “It was a violent insurrection for the purpose of trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a legitimately certified election, from one administration to the next. That’s what it was.”
