Moonbat Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney issues a non-apology "apology"
The incident was not a "misunderstanding and McKinney has issued no apology! Just as saying she regrets the incident's "escalation" is not an apology---even if the word "apology was in the sentence.
The incident did not escalate itself. It was escalated by McKinney, her lawyer, and her handful of supporters who were screaming racism and sexism. She had numerous press and television appearances in which she refused to admit she hit the officer. If you don't believe me, ask FNC Fox and Friends' Brian Kilmeade, who repeatedly asked her if she hit the officer. She never answered his question and just talked over him as she spouted a variety of things that had no relation to his question and made no sense.
It's been reported that McKinney has been involved in other "incidents" on Capitol Hill, some House members refuse to speak to her, and Rep. Tom DeLay said she has a history of being a racist herself.
Top officers of the Capitol Hill Police have come out in defense of their officer who was properly carrying out his required security duties, saying there is never an acceptable excuse for striking a police officer.
McKinney did not make her statement including the word "apology" until after the matter was sent to a federal Grand Jury---with the approval and support of federal prosecutors.
As of this moment, McKinney has not apologized at all for her assault on the officer or admitted to any wrongdoing. So, the title of the article excerpted below, "McKinney Apologizes for Attack on Capitol Cop," found at newsmax is off the mark.
The article includes the following:
"Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., expressed "sincere regret" Thursday for her altercation with a Capitol police officer, and offered an apology to the House. (Read it and see if you think she offered an "apology.")
"There should not have been any physical contact in this incident," McKinney said in brief remarks on the House floor. "I am sorry that this misunderstanding happened at all and I regret its escalation and I apologize."
McKinney's comments came after the case had been referred to a federal grand jury for possible prosecution...."
