Fake Democrat Jan. 6 ignites Donnybrook with GOP on the US House Judiciary Committee

What was supposed to be a hearing about provocative Ray Epps before the House Committee on the Judiciary on September 21 quickly turned into a tumultuous match between Democratic lawmakers who push for lies on January 6 and Republicans who insisted their “conspiracy theorist” won’t stop efforts to find out the truth. .

If the goal of the commission is to find the truth, the hearing falls short.

However, it did manage to show the growing chasm between the political camps over the course of January 6, the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump, and the country’s future. All this takes place against the backdrop of crucial mid-term elections.

Hearing was full of curses and curses.

Representative Jimmy Raskin (D-MD), sometimes yelled, asserted that Trump was a “cult leader” and a “compulsive liar.” GOP committee members tore up “some totally frivolous conspiracy theory in an effort to pull a smokescreen over the public’s eyes.”

Representative Mundir Jones (DN.Y.) repeatedly referred to Trump as “Orange Jesus,” a term he said he heard from his fellow Republican.

“This loyalty to Orange Jesus… will spoil our democracy. And more innocent lives will be lost in the process if you guys keep this up.” “It is not too late to join House Democrats in taking our oath to the Constitution.”

Ray Epps encourages protesters to go to the Capitol the night before the January 6, 2021 siege.

The committee was discussing a Precision That would have directed the Biden administration and the Justice Department to turn over all records in their possession to Epps, who incited protesters to enter the Capitol on January 6 but were not arrested or charged.

The decision ultimately failed to vote on the party line. An alternative seeking information on all provocateurs working for the government was also rejected.

Epps, the former leader of the department’s guard that was seen across the Capitol grounds on January 6, received a staunch defense from Democratic lawmakers.

Raskin urged his fellow Republicans, “Leave that man alone,” referring to Epps as a “poor man.”

New York Sparks Firestorm Actor

What initially derailed the hearing were comments by Jones, who insisted that a US Capitol Police (USCP) officer was killed during the protests and subsequent riots on January 6.

“At the direction of Donald Trump, a violent mob stormed the Capitol in an attempt to alter the outcome of a free and fair presidential election,” Jones said. “In the process, 138 Capitol and police officers were injured, one Capitol police officer was beaten to death and two other police officers committed suicide in the days that followed.”

The comment received questioning looks among some members of the committee. Representative Dan Bishop (RNC) asked Jones who he referred to.

“I can have this information for you in a few minutes,” Jones said. “Do you deny the killing of at least one police officer on the Capitol amid what happened on January 6?”

Bishop and other lawmakers tried to get things right.

No police officers were killed on January 6. Officer Brian Sicknick died on January 7.

A widely repeated early story claimed that rioters smashed Sicknick’s head with a fire extinguisher. This was a mistake.

The District of Columbia’s chief medical examiner ruled death of natural causes. The cause of death was a stroke, not an injury.

Four people were killed on 6 January. All of them were Trump supporters.

Ashley Babbitt was shot and killed by Lieutenant Michael Bird of the US Capitol Police.

Roseanne Boyland died after being trapped under a human pile and later beaten by a police officer who was using a wooden walking stick.

Kevin Grayson and Benjamin Phillips died of cardiac events, although both were close to exploding police incendiary devices.

Judicial Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (DNY) read a media story on January 7, 2021, that Sicknick “passed away due to an injury sustained while on the job.”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) said the bad information was ultimately due to the Jan. 6 House Select Committee’s mission failure.

The January 6 Commission obtained the authority to set the historical record, to communicate the truth to the American people. “And they couldn’t even get the truth to the gentleman from New York,” Gates said.

“We have the whole commission process that was supposed to tell the country what happened, and on that basic question, it looks as if my colleague fell in love with an urban legend.”

A screaming match broke out between Representative Madeleine Dean (Democrat of Pennsylvania) and the bishop when she turned to him and other GOP members and said, “You bring shame to this body” to discuss the cause of Sicknick’s death.

This led to Bishop’s request that Dean’s statements be rescinded under the Parliamentary Proper Rules.

Later in the hearing, Bishop dismissed the position of some on the panel that the details of Skinnick’s death were not important.

“I don’t think we will make any progress in this country if we have our own set of facts,” he said. “No one was beaten to death in the Capitol that day. No one.”

Not for memory hole

Representative Thomas Massey (R-Kentucky) played a video set of IPS telling protesters not just to go to the Capitol but to the building. Massey said his decision was a significant effort to extract details from the government about whether Epps worked for any federal agency.

“This is the only person we have on videotape prior to the events of January 6th and says, ‘Go to the Capitol, go to the Capitol. “He says, ‘Maybe I will go to prison for this. I will probably be arrested. He knew what he was saying.'”

Massey cited a report from The Epoch Times about Epps’ two interviews with the FBI, in which Epps said he was anticipating the possibility of a bomb detonating on a side street on January 6.

“Why don’t we do that interview?” Massey asked. “Why didn’t either of us hear that interview?”

Massey said that if Ray Epps is just a conspiracy theory, it will show when all records about him are released to Congress.

This decision is important. You’re not going to punch this thing, said Massey. “There were cameras everywhere. You can create your own thesis of what happened. But if your thesis conflicts with things that hundreds of millions of Americans can observe — and no one argues — you have to solve it.

“And the only way to do that is by getting to the truth.”
