Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) is imploring people not to rush to judgment on the assault on the Capitol that took place Wednesday afternoon and to wait for an investigation.
“All may not be (and likely is not) what appears,” he said on Twitter Thursday morning. “Evidence growing that fascist ANTIFA orchestrated Capitol attack with clever mob control tactics.”
Here’s the evidence he cited on Twitter:
Brooks says that on Monday he was warned by a fellow congressman whom he did not name of “a growing ANTIFA threat” and was advised to sleep in his office and not leave Capitol complex. Brooks reported that he heeded that advice and has slept on his office floor for four straight nights.
