On Sunday, John Dickerson of CBS singled out Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) for flagrantly lying about the latest House committee hearing on the Jan 6th Capitol insurrection with a pair of tweets — one of which was later deleted.

As Dickerson pointed out, the hearings have painted a portrait of Donald Trump who not only encouraged the rioters to storm the Capitol and send lawmakers fleeing, but the latest installment demonstrated that he did nothing for over three hours to halt the violence — based on testimony from White House staffers who were in attendance that day.

Writing, “The hearing this past week offered a clear example of the instinct of accommodating the inexcusable. The committee outlined how, on January 6, President Trump did nothing for three hours to stop the rioting at the Capitol, despite the presidential obligation ‘to preserve, protect and defend,'” he added, “But Donald Trump was like a fire chief who did nothing more than warm his face in the flames.”

According to the political analyst, “By the standard of any profession, a failure this grave would disqualify a person from the job,” but that hasn’t stopped the Trump apologists from running to defend him — including Stefanik who occupies a GOP leadership position in the House.

As Dickerson pointed out, “the conditioned response is to distract. So, the office of the third most powerful member of House Republican leadership tweeted about the hearing: ‘All hearsay,'” with the CBS correspondent adding, “It wasn’t! Trump officials were under oath recounting their direct experience trying to get the president to act.”
