Republicans Who Backed Trump’s Election Lies Called Out For False Patriotism On July 4.

Independent News Network (INN)

Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Kevin McCarthy and others celebrated freedom — and got the reaction you'd expect.

Patriotic Fourth of July tweets from Republicans in Congress rang hollow for many people on Sunday.

Critics called out lawmakers who celebrated Independence Day and freedom but conveniently forgot to mention they had promoted Donald Trump’s 2020 election lies that fueled the deadly U.S. Capitol riot earlier this year, as well as their subsequent votes against a bipartisan investigation into the violence.

See how officials — including Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Josh Hawley (Mo.), as well as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) — and the Republican National Committee marked the holiday:
