Senior Technical Adviser to Jan. 6 Committee Makes a Fool of Himself After Picking a Fight with the American People

Share

The establishment and its minions have contempt for you, and they make no effort to hide it. The only question is whether their embarrassing behavior betrays arrogance or fear.

On Thursday on the social media platform X, Republican Rep. Josh Brecheen of Oklahoma denounced the House of Representatives’ Soviet-style investigation into the Capitol incursion of Jan. 6, 2021, as a “total sham.”

He then applauded his colleague, Republican Rep. Eric Burlison of Missouri, for taking steps to “right the wrongs of the January 6th Committee and finally end this witch hunt” — a reference to a GOP resolution that would rescind subpoenas issued to a handful of former Trump administration officials by that illegitimate committee.

Brecheen’s post prompted a series of embarrassing, venomous and eyebrow-raising comments by a swamp creature named Denver Riggleman, a former Air Force intelligence officer and a one-term GOP congressman from Virginia who served as a senior technical adviser to that Stalinist Jan. 6 committee.

Early Thursday morning, Brecheen correctly denounced that committee as a “desperate attempt by Democrats and Never Trumpers to go after President Trump and his closest advisors.”

That comment triggered an unbecoming and unhinged response from a military veteran and former congressman.

“Anyone who states the J6 investigation was a sham is a conspiracy theorist, stupid, a liar or a spineless sycophant — maybe all of the above,” Riggleman posted.

He then hilariously ennobled that Maoist committee by describing it as “an investigation into the sacking of the Capitol and efforts by Trump & those around him to overturn an election through coordinated disinformation, legal maneuvering, financial flows, radicalization & violence.”

From 2019 to 2021, Riggleman represented Virginia’s 5th Congressional District. On June 13, 2020, however, he lost the Republican nomination.

Thus, he served only one term and seems never to have overcome his bitterness.

In fact, in an ironic twist, on the night of his election loss, Riggleman complained about election integrity.

“Voting irregularities and ballot stuffing has been reported in multiple counties in the #VA05. Voter fraud has been a hallmark of this nomination process and I will not stand for it. @VA_GOP needs to reevaluate their priorities. We are evaluating all our options at this time,” he posted on June 13, 2020.

On Thursday — indifferent to his election-denying hypocrisy — Riggleman responded with petulant bellicosity to Jan. 6-related comments on X.

“You are un-American, get out,” one commenter said.

“Give it a go. Come see me. I’m a mil veteran who uses his real name and would enjoy a meeting with you,” the unhinged Riggleman replied.

Then came a chilling exchange to which many anti-establishment Americans can relate.

First, another X user mocked Riggleman’s bravado as “Tough talk for an avionics technician.”

That was too much for a swamp creature who proudly boasts of himself on X as “Former USAF/NSA Intel.”

Should there be an investigation into the Jan. 6 committee’s actions?

“Well — then an intel officer. But you never f***ed much with maintainers, have you? Oh. And you’re anonymous. Coward,” the former congressman replied.

The “anonymous” user then made a salient point about the present totalitarian establishment.

“With former government officials physically threatening people who disagree with them, it’s probably best to remain anonymous for now,” the user wrote. Indeed.

Then came a possible Freudian slip in response to another X user.

“This dude really thinks he’s untouchable,” the person said of Riggleman.

“I am,” the former congressman replied.

According to CNN, Riggleman left the Republican Party in 2022. On his way out the door, he decided to denigrate GOP voters.

“It’s absolutely insane what people have sort of put their arms around,” he said.

“If you look at ‘Stop the Steal,’ if you look at, you know, some of the COVID issues with the vaccination conspiracy theories, when you look at all the things in total, the fact is that a lot of that has been pushed by people around the president,” Riggleman said, thereby echoing the Republican establishment’s self-serving, oft-repeated and slanderous delusion that supporters of former President Donald Trump do not think for themselves.

In any event, a resentment-filled former congressman, intelligence officer and election denier engaged in an unbecoming tit-for-tat with social media users. He hates you, will hurt you if possible and does not care if you know it.

Either he truly thinks himself untouchable or he is desperate and terrified of a second Trump presidency.
