In an interview with Smoky Mountain News, U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn said that the Capitol rioters at the Jan. 6 insurrection were mostly “normal” people who were “wandering” into the building. These “normal” people that he refers to committed more than 1,000 assaults on the police officers protecting the Capitol.
After speaking at a N.C. Macon County GOP event, one supporter asked Cawthorn, “When are you going to call us to Washington again?”
Cawthorn responded, “We are actively working on that one...We have a few plans I can”t make public now.”
