Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Panel Has Evidence Rioters Interacted With GOP House Reps

Jan. 6 committee chair Bennie Thompson says on ABC that the investigation has uncovered the insurrection “appeared to be a coordinated effort on the part of a number of people to undermine the election.” including GOP Congressmen.

Thompson, said his panel has evidence of interactions between members of the House and the rioters that day but not necessarily of a significant nature and said the committee wanted to hear from Reps. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) about their activities, though he said it was not clear if his panel would or even could subpoena them.

When asked if the House Jan. 6 committee has found any significant evidence that members of Congress may be culpable in attack, chair Rep. Bennie Thompson tells George Stephanopoulos, “we’re in the process of getting to that.”

Funny but I seem to remember a video of Republicans giving the rioters tours of the Capitol in the days leading up to the Cracker Barrel Putsch despite the fact that tours were cancelled over COVID fears. That’s a good place to start for HARD evidence.

  1. Yes on proof of the “tours”. Why does this man always apologize when he is revealing shocking shit? No need to say “…but not necessarily of a significant nature”. Dems need to get mad and get serious.
