Republicans are fighting back against the narrative the Jan. 6 committee investigating the Capitol riot put forward on Thursday.

“I wanted to grab some popcorn to watch this hoax hearing tonight but grocery prices are at an all time high,” Rep. Lisa McClain (R-Mi.) tweeted about 20 minutes into the House select committee hearing.

“American babies are laying in the hospital tonight because formula shelves are bare and meanwhile, Democrats are using their time in Congress to punish a former President and attack his supporters,” Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.) posted, adding, “How sad.”

Liz Harrington, spokeswoman for former President Donald Trump, began tweeting shortly before the hearing began about numerous reports of voter fraud from the 2020 election with the caption, “Evidence they want you to ignore.”

House Republicans slammed the committee in the afternoon before the hearing.

“Nancy Pelosi’s sham committee is illegitimate and its sole purpose is to punish Democrats’ political opponents,” GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik of New York told reporters.

“It will not prevent another Jan. 6 from happening. It is not about finding out why Nancy Pelosi left the capitol so ill-prepared on that day and it does absolutely nothing to address the numerous crises Americans are suffering from every single day because of Joe Biden/Nancy Pelosi’s radical left agenda,” she noted.

In the morning before the hearing, Trump wrote on his platform Truth Social: “The hearing is another political HOAX to counter Inflation, etc.”
