January 6 Committee Lies in Court Filing

You can’t make it up.

Unless you do.

The Washington Post headline this week said this:

Jan. 6 committee alleges Trump, allies engaged in potential ‘criminal conspiracy’ by trying to block Congress from certifying election

The Post went on to report this, bold print for emphasis supplied:

“The Select Committee also has a good-faith basis for concluding that the President and members of his Campaign engaged in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States,” according to the filing.

Stop right there. That is a lie — and a big one. There is no “good-faith” effort involved with the January 6 Committee. By way of example, look no further than the words of Committee Vice Chair Rep. Liz Cheney, who is on record saying things like this about the former president:

[Trump] is clearly unfit for future office … clearly [he] can never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again.

Then there’s Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger, the Trump-hating Illinois Republican who has said, among other things, that Trump was “a sick man … who loves him some Putin.”

And there’s more where that came from. Those are hardly the words of a Committee acting in “good faith.”

Cheney and Kinzinger, like the rest of the Committee, as their words repeatedly demonstrate, are not even close to acting in “good faith.” This is a political lynch mob, with one purpose and one purpose only — to target Donald Trump because, in Cheney’s words, he “is clearly unfit for future office … clearly [he] can never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again.” (READ MORE: GOP Senators Condemn RNC Censure Resolution)

Which is to say, the filing submitted by the January 6 Committee is a lie, a quite deliberate lie — and all the members who signed onto this filing have quite knowingly lied to a federal court.

Former President Trump’s Save America PAC released a statement from him in response to the filing. It closed by saying, in part, this:

The actual conspiracy to defraud the United States was the Democrats rigging the Election, and the Fake News Media and the Unselect Committee covering it up. Few things could be more fraudulent, or met with more irregularities, than the Presidential Election of 2020. They refuse to cover the facts, such as just this week the special counsel in Wisconsin called for the decertification of the 2020 Election because of massive illegality, including election bribery, and the preying on the elderly for votes, which resulted in fraud of “95-100 percent turnout,” an impossibility, in at least 91 nursing homes. This is true with many other states, especially swing states. In Arizona, 204,430 mail-in ballots had mismatched signatures that were never sent to review, and 740,000 mail-in ballots had broken chain of custody, all far more necessary than the votes needed, 10,457, for “President Trump to win.” In Georgia, over 240 ballot harvesters have been identified in an illegal operation spanning multiple swing states, all caught on video. 

The evidence is monumental but the Unselect Committee of politically partisan hacks, and someone who had a steaming hot affair with a Chinese spy, hides the facts. Judges and even justices of the United States Supreme Court, are afraid to even look, as was the Attorney General of the United States, who was so petrified of being held in contempt or being impeached by the Democrats, which they were constantly threatening him with, that he was virtually a broken man who allowed for the systemic violation of election laws and other things to take place. 

The reason for January 6th was that millions of people in our Country know the Election was Rigged and Stolen, and Nancy Pelosi refused to put the requested 10,000+ troops in the Capitol three days earlier, as strongly recommended by me. She didn’t like “the look.”

The Unselect Committee’s sole goal is to try to prevent President Trump, who is leading by large margins in every poll, from running again for president, if I so choose. By so doing they are destroying democracy as we know it. Their lies and Marxist tactics against political opponents will not stop the truth, or the biggest political movement, Make America Great Again/America First, in the history of our Country. And now we have a war waging in Ukraine that would have never happened, record-setting inflation, an embarrassingly poorly executed withdrawal from Afghanistan, and an economy that is teetering, at best. All because of a corrupt Election result.


The question now is, who will hold the January 6 Committee and its members accountable for deliberately lying in a federal court filing?

And when will the House move to censure the Committee members of this Stalinesque show trial for filing that lie?
