UMich regent faces calls to resign…even after denouncing Capitol violence

Over 4,000 University of Michigan community members called for administrators to recall Ron Weiser — a member of the school’s Board of Regents — from his position for allegedly inciting the Capitol Building attack.

The authors of the petition said that Weiser — who is also an incoming co-chair for the Michigan GOP — stood by “the consciously destructive actions of President Trump” the morning after “white supremacy stormed America’s Capitol.”

The petition based their assertions on a January 7 interview with Bridge Magazine, in which Weiser said “I don’t know” in response to the question of whether President Trump bears blame for the Capitol Building riot.

Weiser released a statement on social media following the attack.

“I strongly condemn those people who turned into a mob and breached the capitol after what was supposed to be a peaceful protest,” he said. “Those who broke the law should be held accountable. My heart goes out to the families of those who were unnecessarily harmed.”
