GOP's Paul Gosar goes to Gab to cry for subpoenaed white nationalist buddy
Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., seems to have a soft spot in his heart for white nationalists — particularly Nick Fuentes, who was recently subpoenaed by the House Jan. 6 committee over his potential involvement in the Capitol riot.
On Tuesday, The Arizona Republic brought to light a post Gosar shared last week on Gab — a social media platform popular among right-wing extremists — in which he complained about investigators looking into Fuentes’ actions after the 2020 election.
As I wrote last month, the Jan. 6 committee is investigating what role Fuentes may have played in the Capitol riot. In the weeks leading up to the attack, Fuentes spoke at and organized rallies meant to spread former President Donald Trump's lie that the 2020 election was rigged against him.
The committee is also looking into a large Bitcoin payment Feuntes allegedly received from a French national ahead of the Jan. 6 attack and whether the payment was part of a coordinated effort to sow doubt in President Joe Biden’s election victory.
