For Jan. 6 Committee, Time for Transparency Is Running Out
Republicans take control of the House of Representatives in one week. When that happens, the Jan. 6 committee, with all its members selected by outgoing Speaker Nancy Pelosi, will go out of existence. Now, as the clock ticks down, it appears the committee's demise will leave some significant unanswered questions.
The biggest such question is: What happens to the material the committee gathered? By its own account, the committee interviewed more than 1,000 people. Some reports put the number as high as 1,200. Many of those interviews were recorded on video and transcribed, and even those that were not were memorialized in notes by committee investigators.
The committee's ten hearings, all made-for-TV affairs, featured brief snippets of video interviews. A few witnesses appeared in person for the purpose of repeating for the cameras what they had earlier told investigators. In the public show, at least, all the Pelosi-chosen members agreed on all issues, so there was no public debate or disagreement between members, nor were there any meaningful unscripted exchanges with witnesses. It was all a tightly controlled affair. The public saw only what committee leaders wanted it to see. In total, it was a small fraction of all the information the committee gathered.
Now the issue is: Will the videos and transcripts and notes of the more than 1,000 interviews be released? Here's the most important thing to remember: The committee can do what it wants. The chairman, in this case Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, decides what records the committee will archive and what records it will destroy. The House resolution creating the committee says that, upon termination of the committee, "the records of the Select Committee shall become the records of such committee or committees designated by the Speaker." But the chairman decides what is a "record" and what is not. There are inside players on Capitol Hill who believe the Jan. 6 Committee will destroy a lot of its work. It will never see the light of day.
OK... So the Washington Examiner is claiming the committee is selectively releasing information. ok... If there is hidden unreleased information that committee is not releasing then where is it? The people texted and emailed still have all their text messages and emails. The people who testified have their own brains and recollections. Who is coming forward with this information?????
Is Hope Hicks coming out and saying "They took my words out of context. I really meant something else"???
Is Ivanka Trump? Is Bill Barr? Is Jared Kushner?
If someone has something to say and has evidence to support his/her assertions, he/she is free to speak his/her mind and hold a press conference. He/she can even use 4 Seasons Landscaping. I hear its available!
If he/she has no evidence at all, he/she can follow the trump model, and whine like a baby on truth social.
It is a nonsensical article from the Washington Examiner which signifies nothing, picked up by townhall.com.
