Trump’s Jan. 6 supporters in Congress may finally breathe easy.

Four members of Congress should be investigated by the House Ethics Committee. That group had already sidestepped one mechanism for accountability. The door seems to have closed on another aspect of the post-election period: accountability for those who worked to preserve Donald Trump’s power despite his election loss. Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Twitter account was flagged 19 times for sharing false or baseless claims about the election results. Greene participated in a briefing on election results despite not yet serving in Congress. Other House Republicans offered moral or structural support for Trump’s effort to derail his election loss.
