U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, has claimed accounts of the January 6th's events are being exaggerated. He made his case Feb. 15, 2021, in an appearance on "The Jay Weber Show" on WISN radio. "The fact of the matter is this didn't seem like an armed insurrection to me. I mean armed, when you hear armed, don't you think of firearms?" Johnson said. "Here's the questions I would have liked to ask. How many firearms were confiscated? How many shots were fired? I'm only aware of one, and I'll defend that law enforcement officer for taking that shot." Politifact has declared Rep. Johnson's remarks as being "Pants on Fire" false.
