MI Senate Leader Says Insurrection Was “Hoax” Pushed by McConnell and Others Who Wanted a “Mess”
What Michigan’s top leader just said is exactly how the majority of conservatives feel…
By Missy Crane, Wayne Dupree, February 10, 2021
The top leader of the Michigan Senate called out the Capitol Insurrection as a hoax.
Mike Shirkey said in recorded comments that the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. falsely framed Trump supporters for causing a so-called “insurrection.”
He went on to blame people like Mitch McConnell for whipping everyone into a frenzy because they wanted a “mess.”
“That’s been a hoax from day one,” Shirkey said, later adding that what occurred was “all staged” and implied Sen. Mitch McConnell and other leaders “wanted to have a mess.”
The recording lasts for more than an hour and shows Shirkey arguing with members of the Hillsdale County Republican Party about his pending censure from the party in between ordering food and drinks. He frequently used expletives and discussed a wide range of issues with the group, ranging from the election results to his support of banning open carry in the Michigan Capitol building.
Elsewhere in the conversation, Shirkey remarked that he contemplated inviting Gov. Gretchen Whitmer “to a fistfight on the Capitol lawn” and “spanked” her on a number of issues.
“We’ve spanked her hard on the budget, spanked her hard on appointments,” he said.
The recording was filmed by Hillsdale County Republican Party Secretary Jon Smith, who confirmed to an MLive reporter that he recorded the video.
Hillsdale County Republican Party Chair Daren Wiseley declined to comment on whether he agreed with Shirkey’s position that what transpired in Washington was a hoax, but said he was surprised by his remarks.
“I was surprised Shirkey openly said it was a hoax,” Wiseley said. “That doesn’t really seem like a position he’d hold.”
