Capitol Police Officers Called ‘Crisis Actors’ By Conservative Pundit Julie Kelly
After the first January 6 committee hearing, four Capitol Police officers testified about their experiences during the riot in moving testimony that brought members of Congress to tears.
Afterward, conservative pundit Julie Kelly, who has been on Tucker Carlson‘s Fox News show 10 times, called one of the offers, Michael Fanone, a “crisis actor.”
Crisis actor Fanone just beat on the table and said it’s “disgraceful!” that any elected official denies his narrative of what happened on January 6.
Calls it an “insurrection.” Blasting GOP lawmakers. Now says this isn’t about politics, lol.
He has many tattoos.

Kelly has appeared on Fox News frequently and is a contributor to American Greatness, a conservative news source.
Another right-wing commentator Greg Kelly said the men are “not equipped to work as officers.”
Put HODGES on "desk duty" right away. He's not equipped to be a cop.

Many have voiced their support for the officers and expressed their anger at GOP lawmakers who continue to try to derail the investigation.
