Oregon GOP legislator ousted for role in allowing breech of Oregon State Capitol

"SALEM, Ore. The Oregon House of Representatives ousted Republican Rep. Mike Nearman Thursday night, the first time in state history a sitting Oregon lawmaker has been expelled.

The tally was 59-1, with the only vote against coming from Nearman himself. He showed no contrition during brief comments on the floor of the House.

Nearman was removed for the disorderly behavior of allowing rioters into the closed Capitol building during a special legislative session on Dec. 21, 2020.

His actions led to dozens of people some armed and wearing body armor gaining access to the Capitol, thousands of dollars in damage and six injured Salem and Oregon State police officers."


What the hell is wrong with the DOJ?

Is everyone else hearing their statements saying things like no evidence Trump cleared Lafayette Square to have his picture taken, and that there was no evidence the rioters at the Capitol on Jan 6 wanted capture and harm anyone in the building? This is messed up! This don't believe your eyes stuff is getting too much.

How much can these whining republicans do to stop an investigation into Jan 6

We've all watched over the last 4 years how justice never seems to come to certain people in this land. Please tell me that we will have an investigation. Certainly there will be justice, right?

We've heard a lot of republicans whining that there shouldn't be an investigation. Can these whinners actually stop an investigation?

To say America has problems with racists is not the same as saying America is a racist country

This is where I believe the right wingers try to confuse things.

If you say America has a racist history they immediately jump to the conclusion that you are calling all of America racist.

That's my 2 cents for the day.

This is some sick twisted stuff being taught to police

How is this guy allowed to get away with this crap?

They are openly showing themselves for who they are

I hate to make blanket statements, but sometimes a blanket statement is appropriate. As a whole, the right is literally taking the side of a policeman who sat on a guys neck for 9 minutes and killed him. Everything I've heard on the radio from the right today has been more in favor of Dereck Chauvin than it is for George Floyd.

Sometimes doing the right thing gets you fired and you have to sue


The right needs to stop promoting the idea that the border is "wide open"

They promote the false idea that the border is "wide open" and then complain that people are coming because they think the border is wide open. They literally enjoy making problems worse.

Republicans dumbing down their base while making excuses for themselves

Our country is suffering from disinformation and plain old ignorance. We have wack- job Magats that have shown they will attack the Capitol at the direction of one person based on false information. Now, instead of correcting this awful situation, republican senators pretty much have told the criminals that the Constitution condones it.

The average Magat needs to see consequences in order to grow and change. They need hard reality and fact, not excuses or debate that they don't understand.

Mitch McConnel's double speak does nothing to put blame on Trump. He may think he's telling people Trump was to blame, but since there was no conviction the Magats aren't going to hear it. The take away for the Magats is that Trump won, he was "exonerated" in their eyes.

I am so mad at the republicans for putting our country in such a terrible state.

It's the same damn thing every third world despot does

They demonize the press, put yes-men in power around themselves, build a loyal following, cast doubt on elections and carry out coup attempts. Trump has done all these things right out in the open, and there will still be members of the Senate that will let him get away with it.

I hope we can keep our republic.
