Former GOP prosecutor Ron Filipkowski shared a clip of the episode via Twitter, writing, Marge has a theory on 'what really happened on J6.' She says the FBI 'set up honeypots and traps to draw people in and take part in making these people commit crimes, and then framing these people to set up a narrative against a president.'
The hard-right lawmaker said, "You see this should never happen. The federal government should never be weaponized against the people and "set up honeypots and traps to draw people in and take part in making these people commit crimes, and then framing the people to set up a narrative against a president? It's wrong. And I believe that's what happened on January 6."
On the one year anniversary of the insurrection last year, PBS News Hour reported leading up to the attack, "Trump repeated the lie that the election was stolen, urging his supporters to march to the Capitol and fight."
Twitter users erupted over the MAGA lawmaker's false claims.
Cathy Coleman: "Good grief - that was some darn big honey pot - making adults commit crimes against the United States - I think Marj just runs her mouth without thinking - likely someone gives her talking points & she just can't deliver them correctly & improvises..."
@LebergerDavid: "Once a QAnon, always a QAnon!"
Jonathan Greenberg: "Keep talking MAGA thug!"
@lachevron: "Yeah, Marge might be a conspiracy theorist, but even she doesn't believe it. Because she was there and she was involved. She says this because she has no qualms about bold-faced lies."
Ron Shillman: "People are saying: Trump told them to come to DC, so they did. Trump told them to go to the Capitol, so they did. Trump told them to 'fight like hell or you're not going to have a country anymore' so they did that, too. It's all on tape."
@mikeysmom04: "Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!' Trump wrote."
@_IAmCrypto: "JFC, how is this idiot in congress?"
@Cosmic_Lion: "I guess she keeps forgetting we watched the whole thing live."
@R_JonAnderson: "Or — hear me out — a bunch of fanatical supporters of TFG got carried away and committed crimes on live tv, aided and abetted by elected officials who are — even now — trying to push the blame away from themselves."
@UROCKlive1: "She might actually be dumb enough to believe this, but it's also possible she just made it up and knows she's lying."
