Chris Cuomo Questions True Agenda of Democrats’ Jan 6 Committee

Former CNN host Chris Cuomo has called into question the true agenda behind the Democrats’ anti-Trump Jan. 6 Committee, remarking that it’s “starting to play like a gotcha game.”

Speaking during the latest edition of his podcast, The Chris Cuomo Project, the new NewsNation primetime host raised eyebrows by warning that the Committee is “tearing at the fabric” of America like the Democrats did with the impeachment of President Donald Trump

Cuomo bucked the liberal media’s glorification of the Democrat-led January 6 Committee by questioning what they really hope to achieve.

He also chided the media for “fan[ing] the flames” that “need to be smothered.”

After addressing the announcement of his new show on NewsNation, and seemingly taking a shot at CNN and disgraced former boss Jeff Zucker, Cuomo pivoted to the committee.

Cuomo said that he did feel “there could be crimes, especially on this [fake] elector front that we’re just learning about now.”

However, “less so I think around the planning and the practical aspects of what happened on January 6.

“I don’t see that there’s criminality there, at least in what’s been offered.”

He continued by asking whether “we [are] really learning enough about what matters?

“Or is this starting to play like a gotcha game? Like the impeachment.”

Suggesting that the impeachment did matter at some level, he lamented that “you knew you were never going to have the outcome …

“The outcome was never going to be what was desired.”

And he didn’t buy the argument that it was just Congress doing their job for the good of the country.

“Was that really in America’s interest?” he asked.

Speaking about those hoping to lock up Trump for “treason,” Cuomo scoffed.

“Why even go there? They go there because it fuels the fringe aspects of the party.”

He warned those people that “you wind up undercutting your purpose when you exaggerate the desired outcome or consequence.”

And after saying it reminded him of Republicans going after then-President Bill Clinton in the 90s, Cuomo denounced the whole process by declaring “no thanks” to “politicians making politics into a policing action with criminal consequences.”

“Not with Clinton, not with Trump and his cronies,” he said.

Cuomo pleaded with the committee to just let the Department of Justice conduct its own investigation and file its own charges:

The January 6 hearings lose their impact on consensus because of the intended consequences pursued.

We all know now what went down and that Trump and co. acted horribly.

Regular people get it. If there are crimes, especially on that elector front, let the Department of Justice figure it out. Let the local prosecutors figure it out.

We don’t need politicians to tell our prosecutors what to do.

Chiding the media, he says the industry “fans the flames” for the “provocative” headlines and admits “they are reflecting what the Democrats and others are saying, but they should be pushing back as well.

“Not all flames need to be fed. Some need to be smothered.”

Calling for “Less distraction more traction on what matters to you: regular people,” Cuomo drew attention to “gas prices” and how they’re “choking commerce, choking family budgets, changing how we live, changing how we enjoy our lives.”

For the rest of his monologue, Cuomo talked about economic issues, culture war issues, and blowing up the two-party system.

And the majority of the episode was taken up by an over 48-minute-long, wide-ranging conversation with West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin.
