For the select committee investigating the events of January 6th, there is very little hope of continuing their mission past the 2022 midterms. There is a red wave coming, and it threatens to wash them away unceremoniously, and without mercy.
And so they scramble, spraying subpoenas in ever-more desperate directions, hoping to clumsily hook some sort of prize in their flailing.
This week, the Democrat-led crew took a step toward the lion’s den of right-wing media, in a move that they may very well exist long enough to regret.
The House select committee investigating the January 6 riot issued a new round of subpoenas on Monday to five of former President Donald Trump’s allies directly involved in planning “Stop the Steal” rallies, including longtime Republican operative Roger Stone and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
The latest batch of subpoenas indicates the committee continues to focus, in part, on organizers and funding of the “Stop the Steal” rallies that took place on January 5 and 6, as well as earlier rallies in the months leading up to the US Capitol attack.
Stone has already suggested that he’d rely on the 5th Amendment, making for some not-so-riveting television, (but a whole slew of liberal headlines).
Jones, on the other hand, may relish in the opportunity to sit before Congress – particularly if his hearing is televised – and there is little doubt that the January 6th committee would be in for one hell of a show when the Infowars host takes the stand.
