State Representative Kyle Biedermann, a Fredericksburg Republican who attended Trump’s rally in front of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, said Thursday he does not believe the facts of that day, when protesters stormed the Capitol. and five people were mortally wounded, constituting an insurrection.
His comments came during a lengthy debate in the Texas House about the Republican Party’s primary election bill that had been extended into the evening. Biedermann questioned state representative Erin Zwiener, D-Driftwood, about an amendment proposed that this would have prevented anyone participating in the January 6 riot from being a voter’s assistant. The measure eventually failed.
