House Panel Chairman Floats Official Repudiation of Democrats’ J6 Report, Claiming ‘Political Hack Job’

A pair of Republican lawmakers on Monday slammed the January 6 committee’s report on the Capitol riot, after footage of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi taking the blame for the security failure revealed errors in the committee’s findings.

Pelosi said in the video that she “takes responsibility” for not preparing better for the riot, where thousands of supporters of former President Donald Trump interrupted the certification of the electoral college votes after the 2020 presidential election.

The former speaker organized a committee to investigate the riot, but House Republicans, led by Georgia Rep. Barry Loudermilk have claimed the Democrat-led Jan. 6 committee withheld crucial evidence from the public.

Loudermilk said that the footage of Pelosi admitting fault for the security failure made him question the January 6 report, and who was responsible for turning down requests for the National Guard.

“It did show me that at least the speaker herself, admitted that they were not prepared,” Loudermilk said on “Just The News, No Noise.” “If she didn’t know that they were even requested, then who in her staff or who was it that would not approve the request for the National Guard? … It is surprising to me that she did say, ‘Hey, I am taking responsibility for this,’ then the select committee spends $18 million, trying to say that it was Trump’s responsibility that the National Guard wasn’t there and that the Capitol was breached.”

Loudermilk commented that his committee is also working on creating its own breakdown of the January 6 subcommittee’s report, which will shine a light on alleged inaccuracies in the select committee’s report.

“We can’t necessarily go in there and just retract what another Congress has done,” Loudermilk said. “But there are some things that we can do to submit our own report. Also, bring out the disparities and the contradictions and the falsehoods that are in the Select Committee’s report, and at least make some type of sense of Congress that this report is not reliable. It was biased, it was a political hack job, and that the American people and the history books should not take this as is any factual account of what happened that day.”

Ohio GOP Rep. Warren Davidson also said the video footage, which was recorded by Pelosi’s daughter for an HBO documentary, counters the committee’s report.

“What we didn’t do is find out the truth about what actually happened on January 6,” Davidson said on the “Just The News, No Noise” TV show. “What Nancy Pelosi created was a sham partisan committee that was designed to cover up the failures … [of] what happened on the Capitol grounds. How was it that protesters were able to even breach the security of the Capitol and go through the Capitol.”

He continued: “There was no point that any level of violence should be able to overcome the nation’s capital. And Nancy Pelosi clearly in that [the video] acknowledges that she failed as a leader, which is an important admission. They didn’t do anything to expose that, in fact, they destroyed evidence and have been working to cover it up.”
