January 6 select committee refutes claim by McCarthy that the Justice Department cleared Trump of any role in insurrection


CNN) The top members of the select committee investigating the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill refuted recent claims by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy that former President Donald Trump has been cleared by the Justice Department of any role in the insurrection.

“(McCarthy) has suggested, based on an anonymous report, that the Department of Justice has concluded that Donald Trump did not cause, incite, or provoke the violence on January 6th,” the statement read.
“When this anonymous report was first published, the Select Committee queried the Executive Branch agencies and congressional committees involved in the investigation. We’ve received answers and briefings from the relevant entities, and it’s been made clear to us that reports of such a conclusion are baseless.”
The statement by Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson and Vice Chair Rep. Liz Cheney calls out McCarthy’s comments to KGET-TV this week where he suggested Trump played no role in coordinating the insurrection.

  1. We expect that not everyone who speeds, will get a ticket. But anyone who incites a violent insurrection “attempted coup” , during a transfer of power, must be arrested.
    With George Floyd we watched as a policeman murdered him on film. It was self evident.

    And here, we watched, in slow motion over weeks , as Trump incited an insurrection. He was arrestable on Jan 7. They have clogged the court with the gullible followers, and are avoiding doing what needs to be done. this is why 9/11’s and the forever wars continue unabated. There is no law for the rich and powerful. When is enough , enough ?
