Tell Sen. McConnell to strip Cruz (R-TX) and Hawley (R-MO) of their committee assignments.

Senator McConnell, Today you gave an impassioned speech in the well of the Senate asking for the members of your caucus to respect the will of the states, to respect the will of the people, and to respect the sanctity of law. You asked for your members to be part of the unity to bring our country back together during a painful and difficult year. You pleaded with your caucus to respect both “we the people” as well as respect your wishes as their leader. Two of your members stand out as Senators who neither respect you and your leadership nor the will of the States, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO). Based on the fact that they clearly have no respect for the will of the States and the people who represent them, as a result of their disrespect of you and your request to preserve our democracy, as a result of the chaos and lawlessness that they spurned that placed capital police, Members of Congress, and their staff in danger and fear, based on their disrespect for their oath to protect and defend the Constitution and what it represents, our Democracy, we request that in the 117th Congress you strip these two Senators of their committee assignments.  These members have disrespected our nation and no longer deserve to sit in any committee in any position of authority until they can prove once again that they respect the people and the government that those seats represent. Remove Senator Cruz and Hawley from all committee assignments!

Remove Congressional Members Who Aided and Abetted Conspiracy to Commit Sedition

Under 18 U.S. Code § 2384 - Seditious conspiracy: "If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both." Under 18 U.S. Code § 2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government: "Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof— Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction. If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction. As used in this section, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons." The U.S. House and Senate Republicans who voted to not certify FINAL electoral vote counts in the states of Arizona and Pennsylvania were guilty of both of the above entitled statutes. They ALL need to be fined and/or imprisoned and removed from office immediately. Once removed from office, the final resolution is to hold special elections in the respective states of the removed House and Senate members for the duration of their term.
