Rep. Paul Gosar: DC riot had ‘hallmarks of Antifa provocation’

In a tweet made to his personal Twitter page, Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar appears to suggest that Antifa provocateurs had a role in the riots at the United States Capitol in Washington D.C.

On Jan. 6, supporters of Donald Trump gathered in Washington D.C. for a protest over baseless claims of electoral fraud. Eventually, people stormed the U.S. Capitol Building as Congress was counting the electoral votes from November 2020’s election.

On his personal Twitter account, Rep. Paul Gosar, retweeted a video posted that claims some of the individuals who stormed the Capitol Building were “dressed up and had knee pads,” made a claim that the incident has “all the hallmarks of Antifa provocation,” without offering any evidence to support that claim.
