I'm not used to the way this guy writes— but he seems to be reporting that some GOP members of Congress wanted to be arrested to "help with the narrative of Democratic process abuse."

"Narrative" in this context means "the story they're trying to create."

They want escalation.

Zimaras gets it.
Run for office, Zimaras.

Escalation, by the way, is how democracies die. Quoting Harvard prof. Steven Levitsky, co-author of this book⤵️

I have a thread somewhere on the dangers of escalation.

See if this thread helps:

On my to-do list is to update the thread with the awesome new article I just read on the topic by Georgetown Law professor David Pozen.
