Timmons Distancing Himself From Trump P2

In response to a constituent about the events of January 6th (below), Congressman William Richardson Timmons IV agrees with the position of Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. 

It is critically important to note several things Congressman Timmons conveniently leaves out of his response to this constituent.

1.     President Trump was across town telling people to be non-violent. He certainly did not anticipate, much less plan, what happened on January 6th.

2.     Any logical person understands there was, and continues to be, a real question regarding the validity of the 2020 election results, due to the validity of a large number of ballots, which is still being investigated and litigated today. The actions leading up to the January 6th event provide a highly relevant context for the motivations of everyone in Washington on January 6th.  A majority were peaceful protesters with an unplanned rogue element mixed in.

3.     Congressman Timmons fails to mention over 500 riots by Black Lives matter and Antifa, resulting in billions in property damage, including several federal buildings, and the deaths of 30 people including law enforcement officers.

4.     He also fails to mention the Capitol Police officer who shot and killed an unarmed woman that day. 

5.     Timmons shows no concern for due process and the right to a speedy trial for those who have been detained for extensive periods of time. 

By his response, Congressman Timmons shows a complete disregard for our Constitution, supporting a narrative coming out of Nancy Pelosi's January 6th Committee, which is nothing more than a witch hunt. This letter is a good example of why Congressman Timmons only scores a 77 on the Freedom Index Scorecard. It doesn't appear that protecting the Constitution, or his constituency, is a priority for him.

 

“Dear,

Thank you for taking the time to contact my office. I always appreciate receiving feedback from constituents regarding issues that are important to them. 

What happened at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 was a national embarrassment. There are no excuses for attacking law enforcement, breaking barricades, shattering windows, and busting down doors to gain entry and disrupt Congressional proceedings. Anyone who was complicit in these acts should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. These crimes cannot go unpunished, and I applaud our law enforcement professionals working around the clock to identify and arrest these individuals.

 Along these lines, law enforcement has already arrested over 650 individuals and this number is expected to rise as investigations continue. While the vast majority of individuals have been charged and released, prosecutors have focused detention requests on a small number of individuals charged with assaulting police officers, planning in advance for violence, or taking a leadership role. These crimes cannot go unpunished, and I look forward to moving on from this dark moment in our history. 

In an effort to stay up to date on my views on the issues facing our nation, I would invite you to subscribe to my newsletter and follow on Twitter at @RepTimmons and on Facebook at  William Timmons.

Thank you again for contacting my office. It is an honor and a privilege to represent you in the United States House of Representatives.”

 

Respectfully,

William R. Timmons, IV

Member of Congress

My name is Mike LaPierre and I am a Constitutional Conservative first and foremost. If elected, I will defend your right of due process. I will never pile on to the complete and total witch hunt narrative being orchestrated by Nancy Pelosi.
