Before the Diapered Don pulled him into the MAGA cult, Utah’s Republican Senator was just an average boneheaded conservative pol, respected in some corners as an astute constitutional scholar and a razor sharp lawyer. But allegiance to Trump and his base voters has transformed MAGA Mike into as big a clown as his fellow Ivy Leaguer and Senator Ted Cruz. Sometimes it seems as if he and Cruz are in a competition to determine which of the two of them can post the most ridiculous Trump fluffing conspiracy theories to their Twitter account on any given day.
Well, today is Mike’s day.
Earlier a rather nondescript MAGA type on Twitter isolated some video from House Speaker Mike Johnson’s recently released January 6, 2021 drop and concluded that what he sees in the following is a Fed dressed in MAGA finery flashing his badge to exit the Capitol after a hard day of pretending to be a MAGA rioter.
The thing is there is no need to present a badge or anything else when you are exiting the Capitol, the “badge” in question is really a vape and the man in the video is clearly the same guy who has just been sentenced to 4 years in the big house for entering the Capitol and stealing a cherished photo belonging to Speaker Pelosi with John Lewis and a $150 dollars from one of her staffers who had left his coat and wallet in her office.
This guy here:
That, ladies and gentlemen, is Kevin Lyons who is currently serving 4 years in prison for stealing a photo from Nancy Pelosi’s office. Not. A. Fed. https://t.co/r3B7sbMyKo

Who is clearly the same guy flashing his vape here in The Gateway Pundit’s conspiracy tweet which was quickly corrected by Twitter and was probably where Mike Lee read all about it:

Mike couldn’t wait to spread this disinformation.
I can’t wait to ask FBI Director Christopher Wray about this at our next oversight hearing.
I predict that, as always, his answers will be 97% information-free. https://t.co/m3rRE4Byfu

And Twitterers couldn’t wait to respond:
Here you go https://t.co/KdJuw3AAD4

It's a fucking vape. You post such vapid shit because you believe your followers and constituents are dumb as rocks, and you know you won't be insulting their intelligence.

Wherever there's disinformation, there's always Mike Lee amplifying it.

Putin’s own little bot.
I predict that you will delete this embarrassing tweet without notice or apology, Senator, after a staffer or concerned colleague tells you this man is holding a vape. https://t.co/3cqlVETio5

I don't vape but as soon as I saw the image, thought of this advertisement that I've seen
If you were serious, you would have your staff earn their pay and check out the details before spreading wild dangerous nonsense to provide cover for criminals pic.twitter.com/KZgf6Uuqcw

But he won’t.
This is just the first small example of what MAGA idiots will do with the newly released Jan. 6th material.
Thank God only their fellow cultists will believe this made up crap.
