January 6 Committee Cancels Wednesday Hearing

On Monday, public infighting broke out among members of the January 6th committee as they sparred over whether any criminal referrals would be made regarding Donald Trump or anyone else.

The committee’s chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson, stated there wouldn’t be any, leading Rep. Liz Cheney and Rep. Adam Schiff to shoot back that no such decision has been made.

On the heels of that disfunction, the committee has now canceled tomorrow’s hearing. The next hearing will take place on Thursday instead.

They’ve given an official reason, but is anyone buying it?

ABC News reported:

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., told reporters on Capitol Hill following the committee’s announcement that there was no issue with witnesses in moving the hearing but “technical issues.”

“It’s just technical issues. I mean, we were, you know, the staff putting together all the videos, you know, doing 1-2-3, It was overwhelming, so we’re trying to give them a little room,” she said. “It’s not a big deal.”

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” earlier, she said “putting together the video exhibits is an exhausting exercise for our very small video staff … it’s just too much to put it all together.”

But when asked later if Lofgren’s explanation of the hearing postponement is accurate, a committee aide said “no.”

The aide said the hearing has been “postponed to accommodate scheduling demands.”

Not long after the committee issued a statement saying, “The postponement is due to a number of scheduling factors, including production timeline and availability of members and witnesses.”

The schedule change comes after the U.S. Capitol Police undermined claims from Reps. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) regarding a group Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) led through office buildings near the Capitol one day before the building was breached.

Thomas Manger, chief of the capitol police, said in a letter that there was “no evidence” that Loudermilk took the group to the Capitol, or even into any of the tunnels leading to the building from the office space.

Thompson and Cheney, meanwhile, diverged on whether the panel will be making any criminal referrals to the Department of Justice. Thompson, the panel’s chair, said after Monday’s hearing that the panel would not make any referrals; Cheney soon took to social media to assert the decision was still up in the air.

“We will announce a decision on that at an appropriate time,” Cheney said.

The panel had aired footage from depositions of key figures in President Donald Trump’s administration and in his 2020 campaign, including his daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump, campaign manager Bill Stepien, and Attorney General William Barr. The panel also questioned former Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt, former U.S. Attorney B. Jay Pak, and several others.

The panel is dominated by Democrats and includes zero Republican members not picked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

    When all is said and done, we may still not be able to reach the reason of some of those closest to us who have deliberately exposed and submitted themselves to the MSM out-and-out lies in order to get their perspective, and many have done this out of just plain laziness touting no time to research and get to the real truth. There is not much we can do to help them see because in the long run–they really don’t want to see; however, as the near future weeks roll into our current days, many will have to admit that they are scared, and they may even turn to those of us who have been faithful patriots expecting us to lend them $, food, and fuel that we truly need for ourselves and our own families. What will our everyday life be like then? It will be hard… that’s what. But, we must trust in God and believe that He is truly working through our REAL president, Donald J. Trump and all those on the front lines fighting to overcome the almost unbelievable horrors that have already been perpetrated on us through the jab and etc. This 1/6 committee is a sham, and the people running it are very scared because they know that their time is short, and in some cases, their time is up. Liz Chaney is a bitter, angry, frustrated, LGBTQ person who recently had to deal with the fact that her father was recently hanged at Gitmo. Read http://www.realrawnews.com to learn more. Let’s all keep our faith strong through prayer, and let’s each remember that history has proven over and over that the bad guys lose. God Bless America, and God Bless President Trump for fighting so hard and risking his own life and family to #MAGA for us all, but this time, he’s working with other leaders of the world to help make their countrys great as well. We’re almost there folks. Keep the faith.

    Just another stacked deck clown show. The only thing they are proving is their incompetence and how biased they are. They have not proven one thing against Trump and the peaceful protesters. They have only proven that Pelosi is the real cause of the so called insurrection along with the help of the fbi and antifa along with the blk causing the breach of the capital building then the capital police ushering people through the doors. Trump offered up getting the National Guard to help with crowd control but was turned down by the one who is in charge of the capital security one nasty Pelosi even after the chief of the capital police asked for help. This shows Pelosi wanted something to happen and more than likely had a hand in planning the insurrection from the get go.

    Interesting that the same person who lied and manipulated both the Russian farce AND the comical Trump impeachment, for lack of a better name, Adam Schiff, is now in charge of this political witch hunt AGAIN against Trump?! I want to know why he is still in office and not in jail. He was literally caught lying about the impeachment and now they need more time to “sort” the video evidence?? Does ANYONE get tired of all BS and lying we’re being fed?
