Ted Lieu blames continued elevated security around Capitol building on GOP leadership not saying “The election was not stolen”

Appearing on CNN, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) argued the continued elevated security around the U.S. Capitol building was because GOP leadership refuse to “reduce the risk of further political violence”by simply saying one simple truthful sentence, ‘’The election was not stolen.'”

“The refusal to do that is…..why National Guard troops are still patrolling our Capitol today,” he told CNN.
