Until the moment the ex-president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, Brian Sicknick and girlfriend Sandra Garza were Trump supporters. But Sicknick died after the uprising and Garza looked for answers.
Both Sicknick’s mother Gladys and Garza visited the Republicans and asked them to support a 1/6 commission. However, their requests fell on deaf ears as GOP lawmakers chose to protect themselves and Donald Trump.
During an interview with Erin Burnett on Tuesday night, Garza met Trump and the lawmakers who support him. She told the CNN host: “That Trump says, and I saw his speech in North Carolina, that he says he loves America and is a patriot is disgusting. The patriots are people like Liz Cheney. Rep. Adam Kinzinger and all the senators who voted yes. These are the real patriots and these are the people who love America. “

“I said I was ready to meet Trump, not because I wanted to sit down and have tea and cookies with them. No, because I want answers. We and the rest of families deserve answers. I will hit him with tough questions. I am not intimidated by Donald Trump like some people on Capitol Hill. I have no respect for these people. They sell their souls for power, for re-election and, as Gladys said in an earlier interview, it fills their pockets, it’s disgusting. “
Republicans have consistently claimed that they “supported the blue”. However, when they got the chance to meet their demands, they failed miserably. Nice that Sandra Garza and Gladys Sicknick challenge them.
