We know the Jan 6th Committee was always bogus and now we have the proof!
Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee is urging an inquiry into the now-disbanded House January 6 committee, alleging that former and current committee members intentionally concealed certain footage from the Capitol riots. This follows House Speaker Mike Johnson’s release of over 40,000 hours of footage capturing events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, when protestors entered Congress in response to the 2020 election results.
According to Fox, expressing his concerns on the X platform, Senator Lee raised questions about the conduct of former Republican representatives Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. He criticized them for not referencing the released tapes and suggested they might have overlooked or ignored evidence that contradicted their narrative. Lee accused them of selectively leaking information to undermine fellow Republicans.
In his posts, Lee asserted that Cheney and Kinzinger were complicit in hiding the January 6 tapes and compared them to advocates for maintaining FISA 702 without reforms. He called for an investigation into the January 6 committee, challenging its credibility. Lee also directed his criticism towards the committee as a whole and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, questioning whether they deliberately lost or destroyed additional footage and records.
Responding to Cheney’s Friday post containing “some January 6th video,” Lee dismissed it as repetitive, emphasizing the concealed material as more significant. He speculated about the potential involvement of federal agents among the protesters and criticized the use of taxpayer dollars to fund what he deemed a “sham” committee.
Lee highlighted a video clip showing an uncuffed officer inside the Capitol releasing a protester, questioning the unusual nature of the incident. Speaker Johnson, in his statement, affirmed his commitment to transparency and the release of the remaining footage over time. He mentioned withholding about 5% of the footage due to security concerns and blurring faces to prevent retaliation. The release is facilitated through the House Administration Committee’s subcommittee on Oversight.
