GOP Congressman Loudermilk Says January 6 Panel’s Final Report So ‘Tainted’ Should Be Invalidated

GOP Rep. Barry Loudermilk says the House panel of which is chairman has found the final report of the chamber’s Democrat-led Select Committee on the January 6 Capitol Attack is so flawed that it could be invalidated.

“We’re still investigating, but at the same time, we have uncovered enough to where it really invalidates the select committee’s report,” Loudermilk, chairman of the House Admission Subcommittee on Oversight, said Tuesday on the John Solomon Reports podcast.

“We do need to take some type of action because this report should never be used as a historical fact, much less used in any legal proceeding,” he also said. “The evidence that they have is so tainted. It is cherry picked. And in some cases, it’s flat out lies.”

The committee, led by Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., spent millions on a roughly 18 month investigation and produced a 845-page final report that concluded that Trump repeated invalid claims of voter fraud and did nothing to stop his supporters from storming the capitol.

“Every time we turn over one rock, we find evidence to go turn over more,” Loudermilk, of Georgia, also said.

Republicans have argued since the committee started looking into the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot that it was politicized and that some of those who testified lied about certain events.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has come out and said there’s enough evidence to call the committee’s findings illegitimate.

“We’re still continuing in our investigation from every front from intelligence failures, how did the Capitol get breached, when it never should have [and] the National Guard issue……we’ve uncovered a lot there,” Loudermilk said.
