CfA Calls for Ethics Investigation Into Rep. Morris Brooks for Potentially Inciting A Riot and Committing Seditious Conspiracy

Today, Campaign for Accountability (CfA) filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) requesting an investigation into whether Representative Morris “Mo” Brooks (R-AL) violated federal law and House rules by inciting a riot as part of a seditious conspiracy to use force to prevent Congress from carrying out its constitutional and statutory duties to count the votes of the Electoral College. The complaint, first covered by Politico Playbook, demonstrates how Representative Brooks’ rhetoric as one of several speakers at the January 6, 2021 “Save America March” likely encouraged the assault on the Capitol hours later.
