Former Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) took Sen. Ron Johnson's (R-WI) conspiracy theory during the hearings on the Jan. 6 attacks to the logical conclusion.

Johnson falsely said that the attackers on the Capitol were "fake Trump protesters." Thus far the FBI has arrested more than 250 people for participating in the attack on the Capitol, NPR reported but at no point has the FBI been able to find evidence that they were "fake" Trump supporters. All were supporters of former President Donald Trump and had a long history of supporting Trump.

Using the senator's logic, however, Franken explained, "Ron Johnson is obviously ANTIFA, posing as a nutcase Trump supporter to discredit Trump backers in Congress. It's working!"
