Katie Hill’s Claim About Why She Resigned Her Post Disputed By Former Republican Lawmaker

Published

on

Former GOP lawmaker Ryan Costello recently stated that he isn’t buying the explanation that Democratic Rep. Katie Hill gave for stepping down from her post.

If you’ll remember back, Hill resigned from her position while facing an investigation by the House Ethics Committee looking into an alleged affair she had with a member of her congressional office. However, Hill visited “The View” and said the real reason she actually stepped down.

Here’s more on all of this from The Washington Examiner:

Hill said the “slow processes” of the investigation would have been “incredibly invasive to my staff and to my entire office.”

“It’s also something that I’m glad I was able to take the pressure off of my staff by resigning so that they didn’t have to worry about that,” she said. “But why did I decide to step down? I realized the impact that I was having on my colleagues. I did not want to be a distraction during the time that we were coming up on the impeachment inquiry vote. I didn’t want to be used as a tool against my fellow freshmen who were coming from these swing districts.”

Her comments on The View came a day after she claimed “biphobia” was the reason behind her resignation, and that’s where Costello pushed back.

Photos of Hill, 32, were published in October that showed her naked in a hotel room, brushing the hair of a female campaign staffer who worked on her 2018 congressional campaign. Additional photos were later published that showed her holding a bong while undressed. She apologized and admitted she had an affair with the female campaign aide but denied another alleged affair with a staffer and resigned days later.

Hill later on said that she struggled deeply with suicidal thoughts after she resigned from her post. The former congresswoman has launched an organization that is dedicated to aiding younger folks, especially women, get into political office.

Because who wouldn’t want help from someone who blew her own opportunity at the big time by having an affair with a staffer?

Capitol Riot Investigation: Official Commanded Officer to Target Anti-Trump Individuals

The complex investigation into the Capitol riots continues to surprise us.

Published

on

There is still a great deal that we don’t know about the events of January 6th, as an enormous investigation into the incident continues to uncover terrifying new angles in the case. The FBI has a complex and gargantuan task ahead of them, as they attempt to separate the wheat from the chaff. Thousands of hours of social media must be pored over still, and there are undoubtedly still arrests yet to be made.  Then will come the trials, which could, in turn, ignite new probes and arrests still. One of the most worrisome parts of the probe has come at the expense of the Capitol Police, who were seen on camera clearly giving a wide berth to a deadly mob.  Some officers were even seen opening barricades for the berserkers, while others took selfies with them. Now, an unbelievable bit of audio recorded during the attack is raising major concerns. A Capitol Police official radioed units outside of the building on the morning of Jan. 6 and told them only to scout for anti-Trump troublemakers — not pro-Trump protesters, according to Rep. Zoe Lofgren, who described what she said were details of an internal investigation conducted in the aftermath of the mob attack. Lofgren (D-Calif.) revealed the finding while she questioned Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton, who appeared before the House Administration Committee Wednesday to testify about security failures that precipitated the Jan. 6 attack. Lofgren, who chairs the panel, described the findings as she asked him whether he had read the internal investigation reports. Lofgren said the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility was reviewing information that a radio transmission to “all outside units’ attention” that they should not be “looking for any pro-Trump in the crowd,” according to Lofgren. She added they were “only looking for any anti-Trump.” There…

Thus Far in 2021, Big Tech Has Cracked Down on Free Speech More than Ever Before

Only four months into this year, an analysis finds that Big Tech has worked to eliminate free speech more than ever before.

Only four months into this year, an analysis finds that Big Tech has worked to eliminate free speech more than ever before. An analysis of these fascist efforts to end free speech on the Internet awarded Big Tech a bit fat “F” for its un-American efforts to aid and abet the far-left. Per the Media Research Center: At least 10 separate tech platforms silenced then-sitting President of the United States Donald Trump over the speech he gave in Washington, D.C. the day of the Capitol riot. Both Google and Apple pulled Parler from their app stores. Amazon Web Services also cancelled its contract with Parler, shutting the burgeoning social media site down for more than five weeks. Google removed LifeSiteNews from its advertising programs, and YouTube shut down its channel. YouTube demonetized Steven Crowder’s channels. Amazon removed Ryan T. Anderson’s book examining transgender ideology, and it also removed a Clarence Thomas documentary while continuing to sell at least 270 hate items. That consistent assault on free speech makes 2021 an ideal time to track the biases and failures of Big Tech. Starting with this quarter and going forward every three months, the Media Research Center’s Free Speech America operation will grade the top Big Tech companies, including social media, search media and others that form the backbone of our online lives. This quarter, Big Tech earned a collective “F.” Every one of the Big Tech companies reviewed got an “F” in free speech. That’s simply appalling. The quarter began with unparalleled restriction of the president of the United States. It was unquestionably the low point for online freedom since the creation of the internet. The MRC added its report card: The MRC went on in its report to detail all the reasons why each company in the graph above have…
