Jan. 6 Panel Chairman Says Trump Will Be Part of Inquiry

Reuters Twitter

Democrats are still hoping they can pin the blame for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot squarely on former President Trump’s shoulders. Rep. Bennie Thompson, the chairman of the select panel investigating the events of Jan. 6, says that “nothing is off limits” and Trump will be part of the inquiry.

According to The Hill:

He told The Guardian that he “absolutely” intends on conducting a wide-ranging probe against Trump and some of his top allies on Capitol Hill.

“The issues of January 6 are one of the most salient challenges we have as a nation, to make sure that this democracy does not fall prey to people who don’t really identify with democracy,” Thompson told the news outlet.

“If somebody spoke to the president on January 6, I think it would be important for our committee to know what was said. I can’t imagine you talk about anything else to the president on January 6,” he said.

Rep. Thompson also said he will be examining the communication between Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

“There will not be a reluctance on the part of the committee to pursue it,” Thompson said, referring to McCarthy’s call. “The committee will want to know if there is a record of what was said.”

On Tuesday, Rep. McCarthy announced his choices to round out the panel however, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has the ability to veto his picks. So far, she’s remained tight-lipped on if she will do so.

Also, do you not think their time would be better spent finding out why this administration is following their sworn oath to PROTECT OUR CITIZENS. Oh, sorry, forgot, we do not matter, just democratic votes no matter how they get them.

There is still a LOT of hope. Headline: Constitutional Lawyer: Karen Fann has Authority with Arizona House to Decertify Fraudulent Election. The lawyer pointed out the laws in the Constitution. Come August maybe we will have OUR elected President back!

What did Pelosi’s family history tell you of her? It’s all about the money and don’t think she is not an insider for her family. If you think not, then you are on the NITWITS team for sure
She has to pay a price one way or the other and don’t for one second thinks she isn’t scared. Wait till that building falls she is away of and silent on.

YEP, LIERS do worry about hiding the truth. And COMMUNIST DAMOCRAPS are the BIGGEST LIERS ON THE PLANET. And should have been put in prison by now!!! Our political system /so called law enforcement don’t have the SWINGERS to do it. And the rest of them have been paid off. Every inch of every law enforcement need to be completely and extra deeply investigated . and hang all those involved with this fraudulent election !!!

More witch hunts. Trump really does live rent free in these Democrats heads. I’ve NEVER seen a single person have more influence over politicians than Donald Trump. Is it because he can’t be bought and actually speaks truth to power? It’s the ultimate frustration and they will stop at nothing to try to take him down. So far EVERY attempt has been a FAILURE.

If they can’t find a file discussion document, from trump on the Jan.6th. invasion on the White House by the Democrats, Pelosi can have Adam Schiff author yet another “In House Document”, that Schiff can whip up within the hour, he’s known for this, and pending investigation, on the “Ukraine thing”!!!

The January 6th invasion of the capitol was planned three weeks before it happened. When the patriots gathered in front of the capitol the democrats moved antifa and BLM people into the crowd of patriots and they are the people who invaded the capitol followed by some stupid patriots.

McCarthy must conduct his own investigation and take every item the TRAMP (tyrannical racist American Marxists party) plan to investigate and do the very same to them. Would relish seeing all of Pelosi’s correspondence and phone calls with the TRAMP from 11-8-2020 through March 31, 2021. Would love to read about her conversations with the Capitol police, DC police, Mayor of DC and Joe Biden. Does anyone think McCarthy will rock the “established swamp”?

Yeah — good luck with that, because as we know the evil Democrats have not a grain of integrity among them! That’s why she refuses to have certain Republicans on her “committee,” because she knows they will shred her and her “chosen few!” 🙁

By the way, since Pelosi and her gestapo are sitting on their bums instead of representing the American People, and doing the work they took an Oath for, instead of thinking of ways to attempt to destroy a President, why aren’t they forfeiting their salaries?

The ENTIRE point of this panel is to try to implicate Trump and Republican representatives. This is an unabashed attempt by Pelosi, Schiff and Schumer to try to replicate the effect the Mueller investigation had on the 2018 elections. It will drag on through 2022 and we will be subject to the Schiff style press conferences where someone will claim “to have seen the evidence” as well as multiple ‘leaks’ of of d*&^g information connecting Trump and critical Republican candidates. The truth about the Mueller investigation did not come out until a couple months ago when the declassified documents were released. They PROVED that FBI and DOJ officials KNEW that what they used to create it was fake from the beginning.
Pelosi doesn’t want Jim Jordan on the panel because she knows that when the Democrats lie or insinuate false information he won’t be bashful about calling them out.
Whatever they claim-DO NOT let them keep us from the polls in 2022. Vote Republican up and down the ballot-show them what a real ‘wave’ is.

Pelosi is unfit for her job. Everything she has done regarding President Trump has been fueled by her hatred of him. She has told so many lies that it makes her an unfit leader of Congress, and she refuses to permit anyone who disagrees with her on the January 6 issue to be excluded from the committee. She is one sick lady!

When this is all send and done,this will backfire on crazy,piglosi,the ripper, and it will come back to haunt her, because she was the reason for not enough security at the capital. President Trump advised her and capital police they should have more security, and they refused, they are to blame.
