Tom Tiffany went border-tripping with quite the troubling group

I'd wondered why northwoods Republican US Rep. Tom Tiffany

had missed the Tuesday vote on a bill to remove Confederate military and sympathizers' statuary from the Capitol - 

Grothman, Fitzgerald dishonor Wisconsin's Civll War dead

The U.S. House voted Tuesday to remove from the Capitol a bust of the late Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney, a Marylander who wrote the despised Dred Scott decision—as well as evict statues and busts of men who fought for the Confederacy or served in its government. 

Side note: How did Tiffany pass up another chance to take a slap at minority citizens in his district whom he 'represents'? 

Riddle solved: Tiffany was otherwise engaged Tuesday slamming the Biden administration - from the US-Mexico border - in some very unsettling company:

Capitol rioter accompanied members of Congress on trip to US-Mexico border 

A conservative YouTuber who participated in the January 6 riot accompanied Republican members of Congress on a trip to the border Tuesday night, serving as a translator at times.

Anthony Aguero, a close ally of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene can be seen in videos and photos with Republican members of Congress who traveled to a route along the border frequented by migrants on Tuesday night. CNN's KFile previously reported that Aguero went into the Capitol during the January 6 riot and cheered and justified the break-in.
During his livestream of the Tuesday visit, Aguero interviewed and chatted with Reps. Tom. Tiffany of Wisconsin, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, Chris Jacobs of New York, Michael Cloud of Texas, John Rose of Tennessee, Ronny Jackson of Texas, and Mary Miller of Illinois.

This is at least Tiffany's third recently reported visit to the border  - here in April and again in May.

He is definitely on someone's short list, and leash. Who could that be?

Oh, Politico says it's that guy:

House Republicans use Trump visit to hammer Dems on the border

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas), whose invitation to the border Trump accepted, set the tone with an effusive introduction of the former president as having done "more to secure the border than anybody and any president ever has."
