Shortly after congress was disrupted by violence, while certifying presidential elector reports, Congressman Markwayne Mullin spoke to KFAQ radio host, Pat Campbell. We carried that interview.
Almost immediately, Mullin decided not to do anymore interviews on the topic. Until this month.
Mullin's former colleague, Trey Gowdy, asked Mullin to talk about what happened, and Mullin decided to tell Gowdy's Fox Nation audience even more than we've ever previously heard.
The January 6th details Mullin shared include.
Mullin also revealed that he
Some statements from Mullin are needing clarity. He seems to say that the whole Trump rally on the DC Mall shouldn't have happened. That event drew over 100,000 peaceful citizens, exercising their 1st amendment right to peaceful assembly, near the Washington Monument (a mile away from the Capitol Building.
And the citizens who stood outside the capitol building, singing the national Anthem and praying for the nation. They all have a constitutional right to petition government for redress of grievance. It is not the right nor authority of a government to tell us how and when our petitioning is to occur.
What is clear, is that a few chaos actors and perhaps even subversive infiltrators, quickly got the voice of the people silenced, by moving to violent behavior, thus negating the nature of the assembly from peaceful.. to riotous.
Mullin is to be commended for adding more details, but perhaps a better-worded press release, would avoid some of the ambiguity and worse; statements that seem to conflict with constitutional rights of the people, and the president.
Perhaps one day, Mullin will tell us more about his mysterious career as a covert operative contractor for the US govt.
The interview was otherwise a great profile of a man who has accomplished great things for his family and business, against very difficult odds.
One last point. Mullin seems to have operated under the mindset of 'us against the rioters'. Most people in his position probably would, at that moment.
But most of the very divided country saw the congress itself, divided between the good guys and the bad actors.
What we still don't have sufficient answers about is; what was the FBI involvement, and what entities supplied and organized the violent entry into the capitol. Leftists are trying to say that the 100,000 rally-goers, and the president, were the ones conspiring to overthrow the govt. But the reality is, most of the rally-goers remained outside the capitol and sang patriotic anthems.
