Protesters disrupt Republican politicians’ press conference in support of Capitol rioters

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Protesters disrupt Republican politicians’ press conference in support of Capitol rioters” – below is their description.

Protesters shut down a press conference by Congress members Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louis Gohmert and Paul Gosar about the arrests and investigation of the 6 January attack on the US Capitol.

The far-right Republican members of Congress stood outside the US Department of Justice and said they were demanding answers on the treatment and status of the prisoners jailed in connection with the 6 January riot. Gaetz, Greene, Gohmert and Gosar have staunchly defended former president Donald Trump and his supporters.

The news conference comes as police officers testified to a Democratic-led House of Representatives investigatory committee in its first session probing the incident
