Republicans Push for Full Investigation into Jan 6

House Republicans are pushing to launch a full investigation into the Democrats’ anti-Trump Jan. 6 Committee.

GOP lawmakers are moving to set the record straight regarding the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Democrats have been accused of twisting the events, and even fabricating details, to frame the Jan. 6 protests as an “insurrection.”

After the recent release of the Jan. 6 Tapes, which conflict with the narrative peddled by Democrats and their media allies, Republicans now want answers.

GOP House members want to investigate Jan. 6 and determine what led to the alleged mistreatment of President Donald Trump and his supporters by the Biden Justice Department.

Trump-backer Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has called for a new committee to investigate the Jan. 6 Committee following the release of new surveillance video.

The tapes reveal that the so-called “insurrection” was massively exaggerated by the Democrats and the media or perhaps prove the result of federal entrapment.

The new tapes were released to the general public by Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), whose predecessor Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was reluctant to share.

The tapes include thousands of hours of surveillance video.

“This decision will provide millions of Americans, criminal defendants, public interest organizations, and the media an ability to see for themselves what happened that day, rather than having to rely upon the interpretation of a small group of government officials,” Johnson wrote.

Greene has called for a complete review of the Jan. 6 Committee, which staged a series of dramatic, televised hearings accusing Trump of inciting the riot.

“Releasing the tapes is not enough!” she wrote.

Skepticism has spread to the normally sleepy Republican Senate, where Utah senator Mike Lee questioned the integrity of the January 6th committee and its omission of the previously unavailable video.

“How many of these guys are feds? (As if you’d ever tell us),” Lee wrote in an exchange with Trump’s nemesis Liz Cheney.

Trump faced widespread censure after the riot, but an effort by Republicans to excise his grip on the party failed and three years later, he is the GOP’s frontrunner in the 2024 presidential election.

Meanwhile, Trump has embraced the Jan. 6 defendants as patriots and martyrs who have been unjustly persecuted by a tyrannical regime.

For Trump, it’s personal.

He has never relinquished his claim that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

The vast majority of Republican voters continue also agree with Trump.

The same claims lie at the heart of prosecutor Jack Smith’s federal case against Trump for “election subversion.”

The increased focus on Jan. 6 has concerned Republican moderates, who are reluctant to continue discussing an issue they fear could help Democrats paint Republicans as extreme.

Some of Trump’s primary challengers have squarely condemned the riot, while others have danced around the issue.

Ron DeSantis has warned that Republicans will lose in 2024 if Jan. 6 is front and center.

But so far, Trump’s quest for transparency around one of the most significant events in recent American history does not seem to be damaging his standing with voters.

Strong general election polling against Democrat President Joe Biden has blunted the narrative that Trump is unelectable.

Meanwhile, alarms are rising among Democrats that Trump could win a second term.

This comes despite the Democrats’ attempt to falsely write Trump into the history books as a disgraced “insurrectionist.”

In an amazing turn of events, some of Trump’s loudest Jan. 6 critics are scrambling to win his good graces.

Donors who soured on him after the Capitol protests are now giving him a second look.
