We had been told that January 6th was an insurrection that had to be investigated.
Rep. Bennie Thompson, the chairman of the select committee investigating the January 6th happening, opened the first hearing of that committee on Tuesday saying the committee would be “guided solely by the facts.”
“Let me say a few words at the outset about this Committee’s work and how, as Chairman, I plan to run things. We are going to be guided solely by the facts. The facts of what happened on January 6th, in the run-up to that tragic day, and what has taken place since. That’s what we’re charged to do by House Resolution 503. There’s no place for politics or partisanship in this investigation. Our only charge is to follow the facts where they lead us.”
In following the facts where they lead us, the committee members were chosen by Nancy Pelosi which means only those who agreed with Pelosi and Thompson could sit on the committee. No opposing arguments would be heard. The committee never looked at Pelosi’s communications, thus why National Guardsmen that were offered were not accepted was not a part of the facts. People who were on tape encouraging others to storm the Capitol, Ray Epps, were not investigated. The planting of the “pipe bomb” was not investigated. The thousands of hours of tape were not investigated.
The facts were not investigated so the committee could be led to its pre-determined conclusions.
Now the tapes, or some of them, have been released. Committee members are not happy that facts might be revealed. Adam Schiff, who promised numerous times he had irrefutable evidence that the Russians orchestrated the election of Donald Trump, is claiming that the release of the January 6th footage is a conspiracy.
The tapes are the tapes. They would allow us to follow the facts that could lead us to the truth; was January 6th a right wing insurgency or was January 6th an orchestrated event by Pelosi for political purposes.
Adam Schiff could be on the wrong side once again, just as he was on the Russian hoax. We all should want to know the facts and let them take us to the truth.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
