Top Democrats and a few anti-Trump Republicans have continued their witch hunt known as the Jan. 6 committee.
The committee is investigating the events of January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol, hoping to pin it all on President Trump. Democrats have created a false narrative that the events of January 6 were an organized attempt to overturn the presidential election result.
Citing the FBI officials, an exclusive Reuters report has already shot down this theory. On the contrary, there is strong evidence that roughly 96% of cases were “one-off incidents” and only 4% could be tied to various militia-type groups. These groups were still not centrally coordinated.
“The FBI has so far found no evidence that he [President Trump] or people directly around him were involved in organizing the violence, according to the four current and former law enforcement officials,” FBI officials told Reuters. “FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump,” the report adds.
Former congressman and Fox News host Trey Gowdy noted another problem regarding how the January 6 committee has not allowed cross-examination of the witnesses who made allegations against President Trump.
Gowdy says this is the only way to get the “whole truth” about the events on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
“I watched the Jan. 6 congressional hearing. Three allegations caught my attention: Number one, that former President Trump knew he lost the 2016 election but said otherwise,” Gowdy began.
“Number two, that former President Trump knew there was no fraud sufficient to change the outcome and number three, that the former president was sympathetic to the cries to do Mike Pence harm. Those are serious allegations deserving of the truth. The question is how do we find it? Who are the witnesses supporting these allegations?” Gowdy asked.
“Who said the former president knew he lost…who said the former president knew there was significant fraud…is the witness credible? Is the witness biased for or against the former president? Were others present? Is there corroboration?” Gowdy continued.
“Cross-examination does not mean yelling or berating a witness. It does mean asking all the relevant questions. Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or don’t care, look for cross-examination,” he added.
“It is the best way to find the truth. And when there is no cross-examination, you may never know whether you got the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.” Watch the clip:
