Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) reposted a false claim on Twitter that a Jan. 6 rioter was an undercover federal agent, and said he planned to go after FBI Director Christopher Wray with the lie.
However, in reality, the person was identified as Jan. 6 rioter Kevin Lyons who was sentenced to 51 months in prison for the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Sen. Lee offered no explanation as to why he would knowingly propagate a lie.
I can’t wait to ask FBI Director Christopher Wray about this at our next oversight hearing.— Mike Lee (@BasedMikeLee) November 19, 2023
I predict that, as always, his answers will be 97% information-free. https://t.co/m3rRE4Byfu
