WASHINGTON -- Former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher admitted to participating in pro-Trump rallies on Jan. 6 that preceded the deadly ransacking of the U.S. Capitol.

The longtime GOP congressman and passionate Kremlin apologist confirmed he participated in pro-Trump protests -- but did not commit any violent acts -- after an anonymous crowdsourced Twitter account published photos of him at the rally.

"I marched to protest, and I thought the election was fraudulent and it should be investigated, and I wanted to express that and be supportive of that demand," Rohrabacher told the Portland (Maine) Press Herald. "But I was not there to make a scene and do things that were unacceptable for anyone to do."

1. I wonder if he was the one who told the "tourists" where they should go after they entered.

He probably knows the layout of the Capitol as well as anyone else.

"... [P]articipating in pro-Trump rallies on Jan. 6 ..." and no more beyond that is a Constitutionally-protected activity.

6. Lock him up for what?

If he didn't go in the capital, then he did nothing wrong. Feel free to think of him as a idiot, but unless he did something to break the law, then he shouldn't be arrested.

11. "Passionate Kremlin apologist"

I feel we need to see journalists using this phrase more often, for a lot more GOPers.
