Tristan Justice of the Federalist highlights an eye-opening report from the U.S. House of Representatives.

Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., revealed gross abuses by the Democrats’ partisan Jan. 6 select committee in a new report on Monday.

Loudermilk, whose Committee on House Administration’s  Subcommittee on Oversight spent the prior year reviewing the work of the select committee led by then-Rep. and committee Vice Chair Liz Cheney, found the J6 probe covered up critical evidence that undermined the Democrats’ narratives amid the 2022 midterms.

“For nearly two years former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th Select Committee promoted hearsay and cherry-picked information to promote its political goal — to legislatively prosecute former President Donald Trump,” Loudermilk said. “It was no surprise that the Select Committee’s final report focused primarily on former President Trump and his supporters, not the security failures and reforms needed to ensure the United States Capitol is safer today than in 2021.”

Loudermilk’s subcommittee detailed the investigation’s initial findings this week, over a year after a separate Republican review of the Capitol security failures on Jan. 6, 2021, found Pelosi culpable for turning down requests to preemptively call in the National Guard.

Weeks after Republicans reclaimed the House in 2022, then-GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy sent a letter to Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the chairman of the Jan. 6 committee, to “preserve all records collected and transcripts of testimony taken during your investigation.” Loudermilk’s investigators, however, found that Thompson’s committee deleted troves of information, including “hundreds of video recordings.”

Loudermilk’s subcommittee also “discovered that the Select Committee failed to archive more than a terabyte of digital data.”

“The Select Committee also deleted or failed to turn over more than 100 digital documents from the hard drives the Select Committee provided to the Subcommittee,” Loudermilk’s report read. “This included numerous password and encrypted files, and in some cases, these files were deleted just days before Republicans took over the majority in January 2023.”
