Disgraced Former Rep. Denver Riggleman Plots with Nancy Pelosi to Violate the Rights of Jan. 6 Protesters
Former U.S. Congressman Denver Riggleman (VA), who was rejected in disgrace by his constituents last year, is turning his back on the U.S. Constitution and working with House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to persecute Jan. 6 protesters.
Riggleman could be seen with a smug grin on his face as he emerged from Pelosi’s office on Thursday, and he confirmed that he would be Pelosi’s henchman for her hyperpartisan Soviet-style “investigation” of the mostly-peaceful protest that occurred in and around the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Riggleman was ejected from the U.S. House after multiple betrayals of his constituents, most famously his officiation of a gay marriage to thumb his nose at his Christian conservative base. However, Riggleman’s crimes against the Constitution go far beyond his love of sodomy.
Big League Politics reported on how Riggleman was a Never Trumper who lied to his constituents to get elected and then stabbed them in the back as soon as he assumed office:
“Freshman Congressman Denver Riggleman (R-VA) is starting up his first re-election campaign, and he is counting on support from President Donald Trump to help him keep his 5th District Congressional seat. He even participated in a photo op earlier this month delivering paperwork to put Trump on the ballot for 2020 in the state of Virginia.
Riggleman has quickly gained a reputation as a Republican who will not stand for conservative values. He officiated a gay marriage, thumbing his nose at the Christian conservatives of Virginia who supported him, as one of his first high-profile moves as a sitting Congressman last year.
“My real belief is that government shouldn’t be involved in marriage at all, but if it is, everybody has to be treated equally before the law,” Riggleman told the Washington Post. “And that is part of our Republican creed. And it also comes down to love is love. I’m happy to join two people together who obviously love each other.”
Riggleman’s libertarian brand of politics also caused him to not support President Trump during his presidential campaign against Hillary Clinton in 2016. Riggleman called Trump a “buffoon” and said there was little difference between he and Hillary Clinton in a social media post shortly before the 2016 election.
“I will be writing myself in for President,” Riggleman declared with just a couple of weeks before the election.
In his post, Riggleman noted that he had “no problem with Trump being investigated by the media” before giving Clinton credit for having a “much better political machine” than Trump…“
The country is a better place with Riggleman out of office. He has proven that his constituents made the correct decision to eject him for Rep. Bob Good (R-VA), a man who 5th District voters can trust to stand strong for conservatism.
