House Speaker/Weirdo Mike Johnson Says He’ll ‘Blur… Faces Of Persons Who Participated’ From Jan. 6th Footage To Protect Them From Law Enforcement, Which Sure Sounds Like A Crime

The new Speaker of the House and all-around Republican weirdo Mike Johnson is getting roasted for a Tuesday press conference where he openly admitted to blurring the faces of January 6 protestors so they wouldn’t be charged by the Department of Justice.

The conservative congressman, who reportedly shares his internet search history with his son so he doesn’t look at porn, announced that new footage from the Capitol breach following Donald Trump’s Stop the Steal rally will not obscure the identity of the assailants while Americans “draw their own conclusions” about the events of the day.

“I don’t think partisan elected officials in Washington should present a narrative and expect that it should be seen as the ultimate truth,” Johnson said while basically presenting a narrative.

“We have to blur some faces of persons who participated in the events of that day because we don’t want them to be retaliated against and to be charged by the DOJ,” Johnson said Tuesday.

Johnson, who was deeply involved in efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election based on false claims of mass election fraud, said that people should do their own research into the Capitol attack.

As a clip of Johnson’s odd reasoning went viral, the controversial House Speaker was roasted on Twitter as people mocked the idea of the GOP being the party of “law and order” while openly protecting insurrectionists from prosecution. Not to mention the fact that the DOJ has already seen the footage, so Johnson’s move makes even less sense.
