Debbie Lesko calls hearing ‘political theater’

The select committee investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol is expected to begin laying out evidence Thursday night that former President Donald Trump helped lead a coordinated effort to sidestep his election loss that culminated in the historic insurrection.

The committee reportedly plans to detail the involvement of right-wing extremists, such as the Proud Boys, a national group that helped swarm the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, as Congress sought to certify President Joe Biden’s victory.

Men toting Arizona flags and wearing camouflage and distinctive blaze orange caps associated with the group were among the more prominent images of a day that shook the nation.

It is only one of the many Arizona threads running through an investigation seen by many as a critical warning about American democracy and dismissed as “partisan warfare” by Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.
