On Tuesday, the January 6th Panel Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, said that the Select Committee is very close to “putting pens down” on its final report – the final summation of the Panel’s year-and-a-half inquiry – which would possibly not be released by the end of this year, shortly before GOPs assume the control of the Congress’ lower chamber.
The Chairman of the Congressional Committee said the main text of the report, which is based on over a thousand interviews, millions of pages of documents and wide-ranging videos of the insurrection, is complete, and there’s consensus on that. In addition, Mr. Thompson said the panel’s final report would contain eight chapters. Previously on Sunday, Congressman Adam Bennett Schiff also said Capitol Attack Committee is too close to agreement on the final report and going to print.
Rep. Schiff’s comments come after media reporting that the House panel staff members got angry over Jan. 6 Vice-Chairman’s so much focus on Donald Trump, the former US President, in its long-awaited final report.
Furthermore, besides focusing on the ex-President’s activities around the 6th JAN riot, the U.S. Representative serving Mississippi’s 2nd District said the Committee’s report will emphasize on some other matters, including material the House Select Panel hasn’t formerly presented. Rep. Bennie Thompson said the panel members are regularly reviewing that material.
Stephen Miller, Trump’s White House Aide, Testified to Federal Grand Jury
On Tuesday, Stephen Miller, Ex-Senior Advisor for Policy to former US President Trump, testified before the US federal grand panel as part of the 6th JAN Capitol Attack probe, according to CNN. Miller’s appearance made him the only know witness to appear for testimony since the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced independent special counsel to oversee the criminal probe around Donald John Trump.
According to a source having knowledge of the inquiry, ex-White House director of speechwriting to President Trump was at the federal courthouse in Downtown D.C. for a few hours on Nov. 29. Thomas Windom, a US federal prosecutor overseeing critical elements of DOJ’s intensifying inquiry into efforts to tilt the outcomes recent presidential election, was spotted there on the Day.
Seditious Conspiracy Trial
On November 29, Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) and Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued a statement on judgments in 6th JAN Oath Keepers – a US far-right anti-government militia – seditious conspiracy trial. That statement reads that convictions are ‘a success for the rule of law’ and support the fact that the Jan. 6 assault included an intentional effort to tilt the Presidential election outcomes and obstruct the transition of power.
In a joint statement, Mr. Thompson and Ms. Cheney said that Congressional Panel’s inquiry established that when the former President called a mob of his followers in the Capital City on Jan. 6 last year, the far-right militia group and other extremists heard that call and started to plan and organize. As a result, the participants now suffer the consequences of participating in an arrangement to undermine US democracy.
