Instead of doing its job in investgating the impeachable actions of Donald Trump, the National Republican Congressional Committee is spending its time on this trivial matter.

WASHINGTON — Rep. Sharice Davids, one of two American Indian women, serving in the House of Representatives, is under attack by the National Republican Congressional Committee for a photograph the Davids wearing a t-shirt several years ago that says “ALL MY HEROES KILLED COLONIZERS.”

The GOP group, who idling sits backs and endorses all the actions of President Donald Trump, accused Davids of “supporting political violence” in an email blast on Thursday.

Davids. a tribal citizen of the Ho-Chunk Nation, says she was given the t-shirt while working for a non-profit on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. From 2012 to 2016, Davids in the area of economic development at Thunder Valley at Porcupine, South Dakota on Pine Ridge.

The photo was years before she became a member of Congress. In a history making moment, two American Indian women were sworn-in on, January 3, 2019, as members of Congress. Deb Haaland (Laguna Pueblo), from the 1st Congressional District in New Mexico and Davids (Ho-Chunk), from the 3rd Congressional District in Kansas, became the first two American Indian women ever to become members of Congress.

The Sharice Davids campaign says the slogan on the t-shirt simply refers to American Indian history.
