Democrats are seething with anger and vengeance toward Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), claiming that he was an active supporter and encourager of the lawlessness that transpired at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
But Hawley is not backing down.
While condemning the violence, Hawley has exposed the Democrats’ allegations against him as bald-faced lies.
During a recent interview, Hawley called the claims against him “hysteria and the lies coming from the left.”
“These are lies,” Hawley said, according to Breitbart. “The idea that leading a Democratic debate on election integrity on the floor of the Senate is akin to violence, that’s a lie — saying that it’s an attempt to overturn an election.”
Hawley went on to charge that the claims “are all deliberate lies” in an effort “to try to silence political opponents.”
“That is wrong. That is un-American. It is unconstitutional. And I’m not going to stand for it,” the senator said, as Breitbart reported. “I’m not going to be intimidated by it.”
