The January 6th Committee is at it again; about 18 months after the Capitol riot, they continue to push forward with the witch hunt. On Thursday, the committee announced that five members of Congress had been subpoenaed as part of their ongoing investigation into the January 6th riot at the Capitol.
Congressman Scott Perry from Pennsylvania immediately sent out a press release following the news to explain, saying, “That this illegitimate body leaked their latest charade to the media ahead of contacting targeted Members is proof positive once again that this political witch hunt is about fabricating headlines and distracting Americans from their abysmal record of running America into the ground.” This fierce statement against the committee seems to indicate how partisan this whole thing has been.
Congressman Andy Biggs, who was also been subpoenaed, had a message regarding the situation, and his story lines up with Representative Perry’s story as well. According to the press release, “Today’s actions by the illegitimate January 6 Committee are pure political theater. The subpoenas and news of their issuance were leaked to the media before the impacted Members.”
He continued, “The January 6 Committee’s ongoing, baseless witch hunt is nothing more than an effort to distract the American people from the Democrats’ and Biden’s disastrous leadership. The border is in crisis, inflation is skyrocketing, crime is rampant, and Democrats are focused on fabricating their own facts to take down Republican leaders.”
Congressman Jim Jordan spoke exclusively to the Daily Caller regarding the subpoena, saying, “We haven’t even got it yet. It’s amazing that the press has it, and they’re talking about it, but we have yet to get that. So, I want to read it.”
While this story is still unfolding, this looks like another partisan attack on Republicans by the infamous January 6th Committee. The only two “Republicans” included are Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
