Trump calls for prison time for Jan 6 committee members

 March 18, 2024

Following the release of information about the details of what the January 6 Select Committee found in their months-long investigation, former President Donald Trump has weighed in.

The report showed that information was hidden, and other indiscretions are likely on the conscious of the committee members. This caused Trump to assert that former Rep. Liz Cheney should "go to jail, along with the rest of the unselect committee," as Just The News reported.

From the Report

A recent investigation claims that the House Democratic-led committee on January 6 concealed important evidence from the general public.

House Republicans released an explosive new report on Monday that included witness interviews that contradicted the testimony of prominent witness Cassidy Hutchinson, who claimed that then-President Donald Trump attempted to take his presidential SUV and drive it to the U.S. Capitol that day.

On January 6, 2021, the House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight, which is chaired by Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., published the preliminary results of its year-long investigation into security lapses in the Capitol, as well as the first attempt by Democrats to look into the incident.

What the Data Shows

The research included data that refuted a number of assertions made by Democrats in their final report, which was released in December 2022. Information from Loudermilk's study was made available for the first time.

“The driver testified that he specifically refuted the version of events as recounted by Hutchinson,” the report states.

"The driver of the SUV testified that he 'did not see him reach [redacted]. [President Trump] never grabbed the steering wheel. I didn’t see him, you know, lunge to try to get into the front seat at all.'”

Congressmen verified to reporters on Monday that former Rep. Liz Cheney, the vice chair of the Democratic-run Jan. 6 committee, was present for the Secret Service driver's questioning and knew that the driver's remarks contradicted Hutchinson.

Committee Chairman

The Democratic chairman of the J6 committee, Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, admitted on Monday night that his committee had seen the testimony of the Secret Service driver and that its recent appearance from Republicans was a diversion.

"Loudermilk is merely trying to deflect from Donald Trump's responsibility for the violence of January 6 and his own refusal to answer the select committee's questions," Thompson said,

As per the report's findings, Trump did, in fact, give his staff instructions prior to January 6 to offer 10,000 National Guard troops to the Capitol for additional security. The tragedy could have been avoided if Capitol Police, officials in Washington, D.C., and congressional leaders had paid more attention to intelligence indicating that there would be violence on that day.

“The events of January 6, 2021, were preventable,” the report stated. “The politicization of Capitol security directly contributed to the many structural and procedural failures witnessed that day.”
