MTG calls on DOJ to prosecute Jamaal Bowman using same law used to imprison J6ers



Not long after Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) was caught pulling a fire alarm at the House office building as part of an effort to delay a vote on a Republican-backed stopgap spending bill, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) issued a call for the Department of Justice to prosecute the far-left representative under the same laws it used to lock up defendants who were involved with the Capitol Riot on Jan. 6, 2021.

"Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman pulled the fire alarm in the Cannon building this afternoon and interrupted the official proceedings of the House as Republicans worked to keep the government open," Greene wrote on X. "I’m calling on the DOJ to prosecute him using the same law they used to prosecute J6 defendants for interfering with an official proceeding."

"The Democrats literally will do anything to shut OUR government down because billions aren’t going to their favorite country: Ukraine," added Greene.

George Santos Just Served up a Hilarious Helpful Fire Alarm Tutorial for Jamaal Bowman




While Democrats said they wanted to see the video (too late), House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said he wanted to see what legal action would be taken and seemingly referenced the Jan. 6 defendants. Then other members moved to censure and/or to expel Bowman. So, we'll have to see how all of that works out.

Even though he was caught on video and he's admitting the action, he's trying to spin it as some kind of mistake. It remains to be seen how seriously that idiotic defense is treated by the Capitol Police and potential prosecutors.

What has to be the capper of the day, though, comes from Rep. George Santos (R-NY), the guy who has his own issues with questionable actions. Now, this is some truly funny stuff -- and Santos does an epic burn of Jamaal Bowman.

All The Evidence You Need That Rep. Bowman Did Not ‘Accidentally’ Pull the Fire Alarm



According to 18 U.S. Code 1512(c), “Whoever corruptly … obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.” Bowman also violated D.C. laws by initiating a false fire alarm.

[clip]

There are many problems with Bowman’s statement. For one thing, Democrats had been attempting to delay and postpone the vote on Saturday in order to force a shutdown but were unsuccessful. Bowman’s action was clearly a harebrained scheme to delay the vote — which, we’ve already established, is a crime under federal law. Naturally, his statement was designed to undermine claims that his actions were applicable under 18 U.S. Code 1512(c) by addressing his intent. Not only did he claim he accidentally triggered the alarm, he insisted he was rushing back to the Capitol to vote.

There are many holes in these claims. For starters, here’s a surveillance footage photo of Bowman pulling the alarm:










As you can see, there is a sign posted noting that the door is an emergency exit only, which Bowman had to walk past in order to pull the alarm. You can see it in both the surveillance footage and the photo. In addition to the posted sign, there was signage on both doors reading: “EMERGENCY EXIT ONLY. PUSH UNTIL ALARM SOUNDS (3 SECONDS). DOOR WILL UNLOCK IN 30 SECONDS.”

After passing the sign ahead of the exit and seeing the signage posted on the doors themselves, Bowman then had to turn to his left to see the conspicuous and standard design of a fire alarm, which is clearly marked and requires multiple actions to trigger. Are we really supposed to believe that Bowman thought it would somehow open the doors?

This would be a good time to note that Bowman is the founder and former principal of the Cornerstone Academy for Social Action, in Eastchester, Bronx, N.Y. They have those red fire alarm pulls there too, as Rep. George Santos demonstrates in a video posted to X (formerly known as Twitter).
