‘Great Meeting,’ Says CO GOP Leader of Vote Declaring Insurrection As Legitimate

(“Both Ways Brown” — Promoted by Colorado Pols)

Colorado GOP chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown.

“I thought it was a great, great meeting,” said Kristi Burton Brown, the leader of Colorado’s Republican Party, when asked Saturday about a GOP meeting in Salt Lake City where national Republican leaders voted that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was “legitimate political discourse.”

In a voice vote Friday at the Salt Lake City meeting, the Republican National Committee (RNC), which includes Burton Brown, also censured U.S. Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (IL) because they criticized Trump and took part in a U.S. House investigation of the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Burton Brown commented on the RNC meeting on Saturday’s KNUS’ Wake Up with Randy Corporon.

In particular, Burton Brown praised the RNC’s program of opening”community centers” around the country, including one in Colorado’s new congressional district. (Such centers have already opened elsewhere in the country, including in Texas.) Burton Brown also praised GOP messages that Democrats “just don’t care.”

The other Colorado RNC member is Corporon, who also praised the winter meeting on his Saturday show. Corporon was elected to the post last year by statewide GOP leaders and attended the meeting with Burton Brown, who does not return calls from the Colorado Times Recorder. Other Republican leaders in Colorado apparently haven’t commented on last week’s RNC vote.

    CNN covered the effort to spin the gaffe of "legitimate public discourse."

    After the passage of the measure, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel insisted to CNN that the committee drew a distinction between those who did not commit violence on January 6 and rioters who stormed the US Capitol. But the resolution, watered down from a previous version that demanded the stripping of party backing from Cheney and Kinzinger, contained no such caveat. The RNC might have a reputation as a haven for the most dedicated of the party's activists and may not represent it as a whole. But the symbolism of the entire exercise defied the spin seeking to contain political damage and sent an unmistakable endorsement to Trump over his staunch denial of what really happened on that day.
