J6 Committee Seeks Documents from SITTING LAWMAKER


While it has long been well understood that the committee investigating the events of January 6th was going with a scorched earth sort of approach, it was not clear whether or not their tawdry tentacles would ever reach current members of Congress.

The thought seemed a bit gauche, to be honest, and would likely be used as ammunition against the Democrats during the 2022 midterms. After all, this shows a blatant politicization of the probe itself, and could easily be extrapolated in hyperbole to show the Democrats as desperate.

Yet, here we are.

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot is turning its attention to a fellow lawmaker for the first time, with a request for information from Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania.

Committee Chair Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said in a letter to Perry on Monday that the bipartisan panel has evidence connecting him to events surrounding the attack on the U.S. Capitol. Thompson said Perry was involved in efforts to make former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark the acting attorney general during the final months of the Trump administration.

Thompson’s words were dire.

“We have received evidence from multiple witnesses that you had an important role in the efforts to install Mr. Clark as acting Attorney General,” Thompson said, citing former acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and former Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue, who were in those posts at the tail end of former President Donald Trump’s time in office.

“Acting Attorney General Rosen and acting Deputy Attorney General Donoghue have provided evidence regarding these issues, and we have received evidence that others who worked with Mr. Clark were aware of these plans,” Thompson wrote.

The news has many wondering whether or not there is any limit to how far this Democratically-led witch hunt will go.
