Democrat Rep Eric Swalwell calls House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry a ‘continuation of the insurrection’

Yes, Rep. Eric Swalwell has indeed called the House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry into the January 6 Capitol insurrection a “continuation of the insurrection.” In a tweet on January 18, 2021, Swalwell wrote, “The House GOP’s continued support of insurrection and enablement of harm is a continuation of the insurrection.” In a January 19, 2021, press release, Swalwell accused House Republicans of supporting and emboldening populism and authoritarianism, which he said led to the insurrection on Capitol Hill and called for an independent commission to investigate the events of January 6.
