There is a movement unfolding to discredit Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) for asking questions to clarify information about the things that happened on January 6th at the US Capitol, which has become mythology in the United States government. The mainstream media is upset.
What they are upset about is a recent statement from Johnson; he is demanding answers about the way the US Government is conducting itself, and their allies in the media are not at all happy.
The Federalist reported about the statements:
Republican Sen. Ron Johnson is pressuring Capitol law enforcement officials to answer questions about Jan. 6 and why Capitol Police were not prepared to stop people from entering the building.
In a letter to Acting Chief of U.S. Capitol Police Yogananda Pittman, Johnson explained that his team’s review of the video footage from the Capitol riot raised some questions about how law enforcement chose to handle the situation.

Business Insider turned that around a bit:
“Ron Johnson: Capitol riot not insurrection, people followed guide ropes – Business Insider All these Republicans insisting it was a peaceful protest should’ve then stood with the peaceful protesters in solidarity….like Trump did,” one poster wrote, linking to the article.

Business Insider reported on Johnson, attempting to paint him as an apologist for the supporters of President Donald J. Trump.
Bill Bostock reported for BI:
“GOP Sen. Ron Johnson said the Capitol riot wasn’t an armed insurrection because people were ‘staying within the roped lines.”
It doesn’t sound as if Business Insider is impressed that there were no weapons found at the US Capitol, except for the firearm that was used to assassinate Ashi Babbit, a supporter of Trump’s.
Business Insider seems to be emotionally invested in the lies regarding the events of January 6th, preferring the stories that paint all Trump supporters and evil-doers who need punishment, then the reality of what actually happened at the US Capitol on that day.
Johnson explained that more than 300 people appeared to enter the building through the upper west terrace door after it was left ajar by a group exiting the building under the supervision of a Capitol Police officer. Just one minute later, Johnson said the footage shows that the officer, “who was in the vicinity of this door one minute earlier, walked into another hallway away from this door and out of the view of the security camera” while people poured in.
“At 2:35 p.m., five police officers who were not wearing riot gear or carrying any protective equipment, such as shields, arrived at this doorway,” Johnson said, noting that these officers were “blocking people from continuing to enter the building at this location.” “About a minute later, four unauthorized individuals, including two people wearing helmets, pushed past the officers’ line and a surge of people entered the building walking past the officers. These police officers did not appear to take any further action to stop or block people entering the building until a few minutes later.”
Minutes later, the officers formed another line and then engaged in discussion with the group near the door. This conversation was not recorded because the security system did not pick up audio, but Johnson said no one in the group appeared “aggressive or violent.” The officers, however, eventually began to “slowly retreat from the doorway, allowing a surge of people to, once again, enter the building.”
“Security footage then showed an increase of law enforcement officers outside of the building directly in front of this doorway. At 2:47 p.m., law enforcement closed these doors. Over the span of this 14-minute period, it appeared that approximately 309 unauthorized individuals entered the Capitol through the upper west terrace doors. USCP estimated at least 800 unauthorized individuals entered the Capitol on January 6. If that estimate is accurate, it appears this doorway was the entry point for as much as 38 percent of that total,” Johnson wrote.

Johnson, a member of the oversight committee, is speaking out against a “long list of false narratives, false stories that the drive-by media puts out there and never retracts. I am personally a victim of this censorship,” Johnson said about him recently being censored on Youtube for talking about COVID.
