During an interview that aired Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” outgoing Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH) criticized former President Donald Trump over his role in the January 6 Capitol riot.
Gonzalez, one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump, called Trump a “political loser.” He added that the former president led the country “into a ditch” and “lied.”
“We have to be a party of ideas. We have to be a party of truth, and the cold hard truth is Donald Trump led us into a ditch on January 6,” Gonzalez outlined. “The former president lied to us. He lied to every one of us. And in doing so, he cost us the House, the Senate and the White House.”
