Well we didn’t mean that

Leaders from the Republican Attorneys General Association face mounting criticism after sending out a robocall that urged supporters of Donald Trump to join the 6 January march on the US Capitol that resulted in a deadly insurrection.

We thought it was going to be a protest! Not an insurrection! Please don’t impeach us.

“At [1pm”] we will march to the Capitol building and call on Congress to stop the steal,” a robocall from the Rule of Law Defense Fund (RLDF), a fundraising arm of the Republican Attorneys General Association, said.

Spot the irony? Good old rule of law, eh? Defend rule of law by forcing your way into the Capitol in hopes of killing all the Democrats. Sic semper tyrannis amirite?

The voice then said: “We are hoping patriots like you will join us to continue the fight to protect the integrity of our election.”

Patriots=Republicans. Democrats are Unpatriots, so we have to execute them all.

Also, this collective of Republican Attorneys General was claiming the election was stolen, on the basis of zero evidence that it was and a lot of evidence that it wasn’t. Not something you want prosecutors doing, to put it mildly.

They’re now saying they knew nothing about it, they were busy tidying their desks, please go away.

The Democratic Attorneys General Associationhas rejected the Republican defense, releasing a statement highlighting Republican leaders who they say incited the violence by taking up the president’s long-debunked claims of election fraud.

The Democratic attorneys general also said that the Republican association’s “former chair spoke at the rally that incited the mob,”pinpointing Texas attorney general Ken Paxton, and that “former [Missouri attorney general] Josh Hawley led the effort in Congress to undermine the election”.

Rule of law, people, rule of law.
