Mitch McConnell Rips 'Horrendous' Jan. 6 Riot, Says Public 'Needs To Know' What Happened
Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell described the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 as “horrendous” Thursday, and said he was looking forward to what the House select committee investigating it discovers.
“I think the fact finding is interesting. We’re all going to be watching it,” McConnell told Spectrum News. “It was a horrendous event, and I think what they’re seeking to find out is something the public needs to know.”
McConnell also refused to say anything negative about Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who is one of only two Republicans serving on the nine-member select committee.
