A D.C. cop who was caught by the Jan. 6 crowd at the U.S. Legislative hall and almost pounded into the ground is getting down on Republican administrators who are openly denying the savagery that happened that day.
Official Michael Fanone
revealed to CNN
's Don Lemon
"I'm not keen on getting into political quarrels. I'm not a legislator. I'm not a chosen official. I don't anticipate that anybody should care at about my assessments. Yet, I will say this: Those are lies. Furthermore, selling that horse crap is an attack
on each official that battled to guard the Capitol
. It's despicable."

The crowd, egged on by then-President Donald Trump
, was endeavoring to stop the confirmation of the 2020 political decision and keep Trump, who lost, in power. Many Republicans
have since attempted to guard Trump, and they've dropped anybody in the gathering who set out to scrutinize him. State and neighborhood GOP
bodies have blamed Republicans for standing up, and this week, Rep. Liz Cheney
(R-Wyo.) was cleansed from party initiative in the House for reprimanding Trump for the uprising and getting down on his lies about the political decision.
Since the assault, a few GOP officials have gone into full disavowal mode, with Rep. Andrew Clyde
(R-Ga.) claiming "there was no uprising" and demanding the recording from that day resembled "a typical traveler visit."
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), who was blamed by his own family for assisting with affecting the uproar, called the insurrectionists "peaceful nationalists" who were "bothered."
Rep. Jody Hice
(R-Ga.) even asserted that the genuine casualties were Trump allies.
Also, Trump has said the agitators were "embracing and kissing" the Police.
Video from Fanone's bodycam communicated on CNN ― film he watched with Lemon ― showed something else. He was attacked by the horde, beaten with a flagpole and destroyed with an immobilizer:
