Senator Johnson: Capitol Breach Would Have Been Concerning If BLM, Antifa Were Involved

An Important Truth

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said he wasn’t particularly concerned about the mobs of people who breached the Capitol on Jan. 6 because Antifa or Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists weren’t among them.

When asked about the breach on “The Joe Pags Show,” the Wisconsin Republican said he “never felt threatened” because he knew the protestors “love this country.”
