The Department of Justice has a flexible policy prohibiting announcements within the 60-day window before an election if it politically influences federal, state, or local elections. Even an indictment as a conviction It’s a reasonable policy because it doesn’t work, it doesn’t prove anything, and it shouldn’t affect voters’ minds. The Jan. 6 Commission does not believe it has the same responsibility and plans to proceed with its findings published in the pre-election period.
According to its chairman, Rep. Benny Thompson, said:[October] It won’t be a quiet time. The next trial is tentatively scheduled for September 28th.
The commission investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol will hold at least one more public hearing later this month to release early findings and recommendations before the election.
Despite the committee’s long-standing goal of avoiding the perception of partisanship or politicization, a tumultuous October could affect the midterm elections.
The Commission relies on its reputation for presenting the facts responsibly to protect it from partisan attacks.
“We are not going to jump through hoops to please those who call supporters everything we do because there are supporters of former President Trump who condemn anything we do. The commission “has a good reputation with the American public for sticking to the facts.”
That’s true. The same people who claim the Commission is a partisan effort “to get Trump” new committee It will investigate… Nancy Pelosi’s “failure” to defend the Capitol from MAGA forces, who were bussed to the location by a group now facing a subpoena from the DOJ and rejected by Trump. Those plans are premised on Republicans winning a majority in the House this November. A real partisan.
The new Republican Commission is also very likely to be involved in the Republican Party’s expected response to the investigation. .
It is encouraging to hear that the Commission will continue to publish its findings. DOJ is investigating this matter thoroughly, and DOJ plans to dig out a lot of the truth. However, DOJ is necessarily required to keep many of its findings confidential in order to preserve the defendants’ constitutional rights. Congress has no such restrictions. If Congress finds credible hearsay as evidence of what happened, it can release that hearsay. The DOJ cannot do that as it would contaminate the jury pool and would be unacceptable evidence. Therefore, the public must turn to Congress and this commission for a more complete picture.
Unfortunately, given what we’ve seen and promised, the Republican Congress either doesn’t care how the riots unfolded, or the inability of the Speaker to defend the Capitol from raging and dangerous Republican voters. They will riot. The strange world they live in.
