Remember when the left laughed at conservatives when those right-of-center raised the alarm over far-left members of Congress speaking, or tweeting, about making lists of prominent conservative names? Well, the events that occurred at the U.S. Capitol building on January 6 have apparently brought the wish list demands to fruition.
Welcome to the U.S.S.A.
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), as the Chairman of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, sent a letter on Wednesday to Archivist of the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) David Ferriero to request “all documents and communications within the White House on January 6, 2021 relating in any way to” pretty much anyone who was associated with former President Donald Trump’s administration.
But, that’s not even the scary part.
The committee is also requesting “all documents and communications concerning the 2020 election” “from April 1, 2020 through January 20, 2021” in reference to a giant list of both Trump supporters and right-of-center activists.
This list includes (in order of their listing) founder of the WalkAway campaign Brandon Straka, former Democrat member of the Georgia House of Representatives and Trump supporter Vernon Jones, pardoned retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, InfoWars Founder Alex Jones and InfoWars reporter Owen Schroyer, voter registration activist and Trump supporter Scott Presler, Senior Editor of Human Events and Trump supporter Jack Posobiec, Christian conservative rap artist Bryson Grey, activist and author who was pardoned by Trump, Angela Stanton King, former Trump advisor George Papadopoulos, former commissioner of the New York Police Department (NYPD) and pardoned Trump supporter Bernard Kerik, conservative political consultant Roger Stone, Trump’s 2016 campaign national spokesperson Katrina Pierson and chairman of the activist group Proud Boys Enrique Tarrio.
The list includes many other names. Keep in mind, the letter requests “all documents and communications concerning the 2020 election” from April of last year through Biden’s inauguration this past January.
One might ask themself, what does that have to do with what happened on January 6, 2021?
Posobiec was a guest on the Timcast IRL podcast with Tim Pool Wednesday evening and spoke about what these requests, especially for those on the list above not a part of the Trump administration, could really be concerning, and even had a direct response to the request.
What they’re trying to do with me — and I know exactly what they’re trying to do with me — is they are trying to go after my White House sources. They want to know who it is that I’ve been in communication with at the White House that, of course, is being done in a way where I’m keeping them private. They’re giving me information, it’s a network of people that send stuff to me and I get it out.
They know that this has been a thorn in the side of the Biden administration, because there are some people that are even in the Biden administration that are looking at this. They want to get into my records and get that out.
Well, I’m here to say right now to [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi and anybody else, you’re not getting it. You’re not getting my sources. You can send whatever you want to me, you can do whatever you want to me. I’m not giving it up.
Posobiec even said that some of the people on the list weren’t even at the Capitol on January 6. So, why the inquiry from a committee tasked to look into the events of January 6?
I reported earlier this week about a report that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) themselves claimed there was only “scant evidence” that there was no organized plot to attack the Capitol on January 6.
Folks, take this request letter however you’d like. You can say that these people need to be looked into. You can say that this is a violation of these peoples rights. It doesn’t matter. This is a communist-style inquisition that borders on tyranny.
