Jan. 6 committee gears up this week with a goal: Prevent Trump’s reelection

The Democrats have been prosecuting and investigating Donald Trump for five years. And it didn’t stop after he left the presidency, because they want to make sure he doesn’t come back.

According to Byron York in the Washington Examiner:

Thursday marks the one-year anniversary of the Capitol riot. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are planning a series of events to observe the occasion. President Joe Biden will make a speech. Former President Donald Trump will hold a news conference. And the media will talk about it all week.

But the biggest thing going at the moment is the House Jan. 6 committee. Above all, the House Democrats who created the committee want to use it to get Trump — either by ensuring that he is legally prohibited from running for president in 2024 or, failing that, by damaging him so much politically that he will lose if he does manage to run.

How to do that? With their first impeachment of Trump in late 2019 and early 2020, some Democrats explicitly expressed the hope that he would be so tainted by impeachment that he could not win reelection. Then, after Trump did indeed lose in November 2020, followed by his refusal to accept the election result, and then by the Capitol riot, they hoped a second impeachment would result in him being barred from ever holding public office again.

It didn’t happen. Trump remains, at the moment, the leading potential candidate in a 2024 Republican presidential primary. And that is where the Jan. 6 committee comes in.

Committee members, Democrats plus Pelosi-picked Republican allies Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, are looking for a reason to call for criminal charges against Trump. At the moment, they seem to be focusing on Trump’s decision to wait until after 4:00 p.m. on the day of the riot — 4:17 p.m. exactly — to post a video calling for the rioters to stand down and go home.

Despite Cheney’s contention that Trump failed to act, he did in fact try to defuse the situation soon after the Capitol break-in occurred:

Trump tweeted twice — once, at 2:38 p.m., saying, “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!” and then, at 3:13 p.m., saying, “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order — respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!”

  1. On paper, this means that we are paying the “Jan 6 Committee” to steer the next election based on unproven assumptions. “Guilty until proven unelectable”?

    In reality, we are paying the Jan 6 Committee to act on partisan politics to use their positions to steal the next election.

    Either way, it is very wrong and US citizens need this brought to light.

    Really these people just all need to not be paid by taxpayer money.

  2. What the democrats and the 2 Republicans on that committee are doing to President Trump, his supporters and White House people who worked for him is abominable (I am using the definition of abominable that I see in my dictionary; abominable – causing moral revulsion).

    Keep President Trump in your prayers that God Almighty be with President, that He protect President Trump and guide and help President Trump respond in a manner that will please God Almighty. Also keep President Trump’s White House people and supporters in your prayers too.

  3. Not like there aren’t more pressing matters going on in our country right now . . .

    . . . but, like you said, they’ve been after Trump 24/7 basically ever since he came down the escalator and announced his candidacy in 2015.

  4. Kamala is also going to speak that day.

    Pelosi has an entire day planned to mark the occasion. Too bad the snowstorm didn’t wait until Thursday.

    Here’s the ridiculous schedule of events:

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6th events

    House Pro Forma Session, 12:00 p.m. ET (House Floor): Prayer, Pledge, a statement from the Chair and a Moment of Silence (House Floor).

    Historic Perspective, 1:00 p.m. ET (Cannon Caucus Room): Librarian of Congress Dr. Carla Hayden will moderate a conversation between historians Doris Kearns Goodwin and Jon Meacham to establish and preserve the narrative of January 6th.

    Members’ Testimonials, 2:30 p.m. ET (Cannon Caucus Room): Presided over by Rep. Jason Crow, Members will share their reflections of the day.

    Prayer Vigil, 5:30 p.m. ET (Center Steps, U.S. Capitol): for Members of the House and Senate to join in an observance of the day in prayer and music.

  5. I recommend watching Tucker Carlson’s Patriot Purge 3-part documentary series and reading The Revolver News Expose on Ray Epps and other apparent Federally protected provocateurs trying to get people revved up on January 5 AND 6. The similarities between Wisconsin and Washington DC are disturbing.

    What to say about Liz Cheney? Siding with Nancy Pelosi, really? Basically, the political dynasties of Cheney and Bush really don’t seem to care about Americans in the middle of the bell curve. If they did, they would not have promoted Biden and his disastrous agenda and diminished Trump. They risked America because Trump hurt their feelings. Liz seems vindictive.
