US House member Rep. Majorie Taylor Green updated her followers about a chaotic press conference she attempted to hold in front of the US DOJ’s office in Washington DC on Tuesday.
Green and several other US House members attempted to get answers to their inquiries regarding January 6th at the US Capitol and about political prisoners being held in DC prison. Even under assault from a leftist mob, who showed up to shut the official press conference down, the DOJ would not allow the members of Congress to enter the building.
Key Point: According to Greene, not only did the leftist mob attack them at their press conference seeking answers to letters they have sent requesting information, the DOJ refused to allow the group of Republicans into the building.
2nd Key Point: These are the questions we have been asking and can not get answers to.
- “We were asking what happened to the Intel that was provided before the 6th about the violence, and why did people refuse to prepare.”
- “In our letters, we have asked and we want to know about the Jail. The Jan 6th detainees.”
According to Greene [7:50] :
Myself, along with representatives Matt Gaetz, Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Louie Gohmert, and Bob Good, went to the Department of Justice to get answers to the information we are seeking. We have all sent letters about January 6th, and no one will answer our questions. We have been trying to get the answers to multiple things. In response to Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th hearing, which is nothing but a scam and a witch hunt, she is just politically propping things up to go against President Trump, myself, and others.
Today her committee started, so we went to the Department of Justice to get answers to the questions we have been asking for months. Yes! We have been asking questions for months and have received no answers. We told them we were coming; we went to the door. They would not even let us in. We could not pass the bike rack area; they left members of Congress on the sidewalk. Which is like an area for security, but the security person would not let us in. Don’t forget Republican members of Congress were almost murdered. BLM and Antifa riots are routine there, and there were dangerous leftists, and the Department of Justice would not even let us into the lobby.
We have sent letters and asked questions over and over, and no one responds. Several of my colleagues who were with me are on the Judicial Committee and Judicial, which by the way they have oversight over the DOJ. They wouldn’t let any of us in. They refused to answer our questions.
Pelosi’s Committee is a witch hunt, and Biden’s DOJ refuses to answer questions.
Going down a Rabbit Hole:
I broke the story in the Gateway Pundit about the letter to Muriel Bowser from the Oversight Committee about the condition of the Political Prisoners from Jan 6th being held in jail, which she refused to answer:
The U.S. House Oversight is threatening to investigate the condition of prisons in D.C. where prisoners, including those held since January 6 for Capitol Hill offenses, are being held in solitary confinement, claiming Bowser is not ready for DC Statehood until she complies with their requests.
U.S. Rep. James Comer (R-KY), the Republican leader of the U.S. House Oversight Committee, sent Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser a letter in April, requesting information about Bowser’s established draconian conditions in D.C. jails keeping prisoners under her jurisdiction in solitary confinement for up to 23 hours a day. Further, Bowser’s refusal to answer to the U.S. House impacts her pursuit of Statehood for D.C. According to one local activist who has studied the situation, she has even made the situation worse because of the investigation.
Suzanne Monk, the founder of ReOpen America Pac, told me:
Remember this is anyone in D.C. who is awaiting trial, which includes people who are there as a result of January 6, who are still awaiting trial and are being held in solitary confinement for up to 23 hours a day. After Rep. Comer sent his letter, Bowser made the situation worse by claiming that anyone who had gotten vaccinated could have a break in solitary. So that makes it worse for those people in there. We are watching this situation and will update you.
According to the letter from Comer, Bowser can expect to be investigated by Congress for her actions, even if she chooses to continue to ignore their inquiries.
According to Comer’s letter, if Bowser wants statehood, she needs to be ready to take federal prisons, and that means she needs to have her prisons evaluated. Referencing a recent article in the Washington Post, he said:
D.C.’s house is not in order, and the solution is not to grant it even more authority through
statehood. It is this Committee’s responsibility and obligation to exercise proper oversight of the District, its infrastructure, finances, and citizens, including those who may be incarcerated.
Please coordinate with the staff of the Committee on Oversight and Reform to arrange a briefing
to answer questions regarding this disturbing treatment of D.C.’s incarcerated population.
In addition, please provide a response to my letter of April 6, 2021, which asked you a series of
straightforward questions regarding D.C. statehood and the intent to levy a commuter tax against neighboring jurisdictions, which has gone unanswered by your office.
The Committee on Oversight and Reform is the principal oversight committee of the U.S. House
of Representatives and has broad authority to investigate “any matter” at “any time” under House Rule X. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this inquiry.
The U.S. House Minority Office confirmed to me that there had been no response to Comer’s letter.
Here is the back story of the events on Tuesday and prior leading up the press conference:
