A former Obama communications official is warning that the January 6 commission hearings, which will air on prime-time television beginning Thursday, are designed to smear and crush the patriot movement and may backfire on Democrats leading what some anticipate will be a partisan political circus.
Democrats have a history of overstating their position and misrepresenting facts. From Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., promising he had “ample evidence” Trump was guilty of “collusion,” to two botched impeachment trials of the former president, to President Biden claiming 50 intelligence experts verified that the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation, the outlandish claims have proven to be an embarrassing house of cards for the DNC.
The hyper-partisan January 6 commission panel seems intent on returning to the familiar DNC playbook.
The committee elected to use an ABC television producer to host the televised proceedings. Notable is the fact that ABC’s political panel ratings “have plummeted” due to perceived political bias.
Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., will be front and center — his notable achievement in recent years is underperforming at the Trump impeachment hearings.
Schiff, whom The Millennium Report referred to as a “despicable, utterly evil…traitor to humanity,” is also in the spotlight, promising “bombshell new revelations,” according to the Daily Wire. Seventeen months after the fact, no “bombshell” announcements have yet been made.
Seeing the potential for a repeat of fairly recent disasters, David Axelrod, a former adviser to former President Obama, is urging Democrats to move forward with caution.
“If I were a member of the 1/6 committee, stories like these, casting the hearings as a political cudgel, would make me very unhappy,” Axelrod wrote. “Conversely, Rs, who hope to dismiss damning findings as partisan, will seize on them. Let facts speak for themselves.”
The January 6 committee has reportedly spent tens of millions of dollars, interviewed more than 1000 witnesses and arrested more than 700 people, some of whom are incarcerated and awaiting trial and others have received severe sentences not consistent with those found guilty of violent crimes in connection with BLM riots.
Notably absent from media coverage is why several thousand hours of missing surveillance video footage is not available for review, why the local police — over whom Rep. Jim Jordan claims Speaker Nancy Pelosi has jurisdiction — were ordered to stand down, and why FBI agents appear to be participating in (and instigating) the breach of the capitol.
The hearings are scheduled to air live on multiple networks, starting Thursday at 8 p.m. (Eastern Time). Raskin promised that the hearings would “blow the roof off the House.”
Schiff said: “Our goal is to present the narrative of what happened in this country, how close we came to losing our democracy, what led to the violence. Americans I think know a great deal already — they have seen a number of bombshells already [and] there’s a great deal they haven’t seen. But perhaps the most important is the public has not seen it woven together, how one thing led to another.”
Axios reported that Raskin wants to use the hearings to justify eliminating the Electoral College and noted that the congressman said the hearings will help viewers understand who was really behind the riots.
“The select committee has found evidence about a lot more than incitement here, and we’re gonna be laying out the evidence about all of the actors who were pivotal to what took place on Jan. 6.”
Representative Jim Banks, R-Ind., is disgusted by the charade, telling the Daily Wire:
“The sham January 6th committee is grasping at straws, just like the two failed impeachments. They’re trying to turn their investigation into a taxpayer-funded TV special, instead of getting to the bottom of January 6th because they don’t want to uncover inconvenient truths about Speaker Pelosi’s role in the security failure at the Capitol.”
