Link: Lawmakers denounce GOP Rep. Brooks for appearing sympathetic to Capitol bomb threat suspect

In a statement Thursday afternoon, Brooks said he was aware of the bomb threat and “monitoring the situation” from Alabama, while lamenting that “violence and threats of violence targeting America’s political institutions are far too common.”

Brooks then appeared to sympathize with the bomb threat suspect, saying he understood “citizenry anger directed at dictatorial Socialism.” Roseberry’s family told The Washington Post that he disliked Biden’s policies and was a supporter of former president Donald Trump, with whom Brooks is also aligned.

This is the kind of stuff the GOP can do without. Too bad the response is so muted.
