McCarthy Announces J6 Investigations
(AmericanProsperity.com) – On June 30, 2021, House Resolution 503 passed, resulting in the formation of the January 6 Committee, with representatives Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and Liz Cheney (R-WY) as chair and vice chair, respectively. However, with the 117th session of Congress coming to an end, the committee is set to dissolve. Current House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is taking action to ensure the preservation of all documents and has indicated there will be investigations.
On Wednesday, November 30, McCarthy penned a letter to Rep. Thompson, reminding him — and the rest of the committee — “to preserve all records collected and transcriptions of testimony” per House Rule VII. He goes on to blast the committee for wasting millions of taxpayer dollars and 18 months on an investigation that is largely going on behind closed doors.
McCarthy demanded that the American people “are owed all of the information [the committee] gathered,” not just that which “comports with [their] political agenda.” He went on to say that the GOP, which just won the majority in the midterm elections, will investigate what the current committee did not — namely, why the US Capitol wasn’t secure on January 6, 2021.
Over the last year and a half, McCarthy has made no bones about his dissatisfaction with the committee and its agenda. He withdrew his nominations after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) rejected two of his choices — Representatives Jim Banks (R-IN) and Jim Jordan (R-OH). While the committee maintained it was still bipartisan, the only two Republicans serving on it, Cheney and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), were appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA and generally considered by the GOP as RINOs.
On late Wednesday, Thompson, who spoke with reporters, according to The Hill. He said the committee would be releasing all of the information to the public in its final report, which reportedly contains more than 1,000 witness interviews.
The panel plans to meet at least one last time, to decide whether to take action against those who failed to answer subpoenas and to submit criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.
In the meantime, McCarthy is making sure that nothing slips through the cracks for when the Republicans want to hold their own investigations into the committee and its year-plus witchhunt into former President Donald Trump. The GOP is also seeking to investigate the treatment of those jailed on charges related to January 6.
When the GOP takes the helm of the House in January, it’s clear they plan to hit the ground running on day one.
