GOP Lawmakers Introduce New Bill That Hits Pelosi, Democrats, and George Soros Hit the Hardest
For far too long now, that is, months – Black Lives Matter and Antifa terrorists have been rioting in numerous cities across the nation.
We’ve seen the most damage done in cities like Seattle, Portland, and Minneapolis but there have been other cities that have been severely impacted as well as a result.
Take for instance New York City and Chicago which has seen crime sky rocket, and Kenosha which has seen rioting as well.
There are still more cities that could be named, but I digress.
They have caused billions of dollars worth of damage and thousands of businesses have been destroyed.
As though that wasn’t bad enough, district attorneys in many of these places are dropping charges and even helping these criminals get put back on the streets without any sort of punishment for their criminal actions. When criminals can get away with being criminals, guess what they’re going to do? criminal activities.
Now, Republican lawmakers are taking action to hold these rioters accountable by passing legislation that comes down hard on Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats.
GOP Representative Debbie Lesko released this statement:
Today, U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (AZ-08) and Ranking Member of the House Committee on the Judiciary, Jim Jordan (R-OH-04), introduced the Holding Rioters Accountable Act of 2020 to hold the rioters responsible for destruction across our nation accountable for their actions and ensure local officials do not turn a blind eye to the chaos in our cities.
“We have laws in our country for a reason and if cities and states choose not to uphold them, they should not be rewarded with money from federal grants,” said Congresswoman Lesko following the introduction of the bill. “I hope this bill will incentivize cities and states to follow the law and hold rioters accountable. There is no place in our nation for this lawlessness.”
The bill grants the attorney general the authority to withhold up to 10 percent of Department of Justice (DOJ) grants from cities and states where prosecutors are failing to prosecute crimes arising from riots and other violent protests. The DOJ is responsible for determining prosecutorial misconduct for the purposes of implementing this legislation.
“Chaos and violence have no place in American cities,” said Ranking Member Jordan. “It’s time for Democrats to denounce violent left-wing extremism, reject efforts to defund the police, and hold anarchists and criminals accountable for their lawlessness.”
