Jan. 6 committee issues its final report, warns conservative media they may be investigated

The House Special Committee on the Jan. 6 Attack on the U.S. Capitol released its final report on Thursday. There are no surprises in the report that accuses former President Donald Trump of trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. The report says Trump and his inner circle “engaged in at least 200 apparent acts of public or private outreach, pressure, or condemnation, targeting either state legislators or State or local election administrators, to overturn State election results.”

The report comes after the committee formally accused Trump of inciting insurrection and other crimes and called for the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation.

Our country has come too far to allow a defeated President to turn himself into a successful tyrant by upending our democratic institutions, fomenting violence, and, as I saw it, opening the door to those in our country whose hatred and bigotry threaten equality and justice for all Americans,” wrote the panel’s Chair Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat. He was joined by Republican Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, and Democrats Adam Schiff, Zoe Lofgren, Pete Aguilar, Stephanie Murphy, Jamie Raskin and Elaine Luria.

The report makes several recommendations, including reforming the Electoral College with the Electoral Reform Act. In fact, on Thursday the Senate did pass that act, which was tucked inside the massive spending package that will cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion.

The report also advises pursuing criminal and civil actions against those accused of misconduct by the report. It would ask Congress to create a process to bar people from future office, using the 14th Amendment. It recommends more severe punishment for those attempting to impeded the transfer of presidential power and stronger sanctions for those making threats against election workers.

The report also goes after certain unnamed media, saying that Congress “should continue to evaluate policies of media companies that have had the effect of radicalizing their customers, including by provoking people to attack their own country.”

  1. Another case of the pot calling the kettle black.
    .’
    If these establishment lackeys and traitors REALLY wanted to investigate an actual ‘insurrection’, they’d be digging into the mountains of evidence proving that the 2020 presidential election was stolen for husk Biden by a (need I say it, utterly UNdemocratic) deep state cabal.
    .
    As usual for radical leftist extremists, though, we just get more “admission by projection”.

    • Thomas, can you please provide me just a pebble of this mountain of evidence? Evidence that would meet the definition of evidence. FYI, items reported by Fox News, Rudy Giuliani, or My Pillow Guy do not meet the definition. “We have lots of theories, we just don’t have any evidence” – Rudy Giuliani

      • Have you been paying any attention to the twitter files? Of course you haven’t. No matter how much proof is provided you refuse to see it. Yuri Bezmenov was right about you.

      • 3,000,000 taxpayer reasons flowed from FBI to Twitter you silly sausage, and that’s the tippy tip of the deep state iceberg, the bit we got a peak of floating above the old swampy cesspool.

        • You are about as gullible as the average Trump supporter. The FBI has been flagging accounts and notifying twitter of policy violations for years. Twitter began asking for reimbursement in 2019. In Twitters most recent transparency report it reported that it only took action on approximately 40 percent of the FBI’s notifications. What does this have to do with election fraud? “So in summary your Honor, the FBI paid Twitter $3.5 million since 2019 and we believe this is a mountain of evidence supporting election fraud as your average Trump supporter and deep state conspiracy theorist believes every thing they read on Twitter”!

          • Learn your history, before it’s too late, and it repeats itself:

            ‘https://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/jul/31/d-notice-system-state-media-press-freedom

          • Hunter’s laptop. The FBI lied and told social media and corp. media to cover up the story. The FBI interfering on behalf of a political party. If your ok with that I think China might be a better fit for you. Now explain how I’m wrong. Calling Trump supporters gullible is not an argument, we’re not children, use logic.

          • “You are about as gullible as the average Trump supporter. The FBI has been flagging accounts and notifying twitter of policy violations for years……….”
            No comment on James Baker, Mr. Knowledgable? Eyeball deep in the Trump persecutions and framings, and shortly after being escorted out of the FBI in disgrace, he shows up in the janitorial room of Twitter with mop and bucket desperately trying to clean up the FBI mess before Musk pours the whole mess onto the sidewalk for all to see and smell. Like the FBI should have done with this weasel long ago, Musk fired him.
            You’re willfully blind, but you can forget about convincing others to close their eyes. The smell is so bad, we have to look so we don’t get it on our shoes.

      • If you are adamant that anything from sources you do not like is not “evidence’ then it is an impossibility that you will be convinced in any way.
        Bummer if you do not like it, but each of the sources you mention are actually asking valid questions, pointing out valid discrepancies, and demanding that real investigations and audits are performed.
        But, you just want to accept the election was clean because… reason.

      • Release the thousands of hours of closed circuit TV footage from the capital. Have they caught the pipe bomber yet?

  2. Crimson flames tied through my ears
    Rollin’ high and mighty traps
    Pounced with fire on flaming roads
    Using ideas as my maps
    “We’ll meet on edges, soon,” said I
    Proud ‘neath heated brow
    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I’m younger than that now.

    Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
    “Rip down all hate,” I screamed
    Lies that life is black and white
    Spoke from my skull, I dreamed
    Romantic facts of musketeers
    Foundationed deep, somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I’m younger than that now.

    Girls’ faces formed the forward path
    From phony jealousy
    To memorizing politics
    Of ancient history
    Flung down by corpse evangelists
    Unthought of, though, somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I’m younger than that now.

    A self-ordained professor’s tongue
    Too serious to fool
    Spouted out that liberty
    Is just equality in school
    “Equality,” I spoke their word
    As if a wedding vow
    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I’m younger than that now.

    In a soldier’s stance, I aimed my hand
    At the mongrel dogs who teach
    Fearing not I’d become my enemy
    In the instant that I preach
    My existence led by confusion boats
    Mutiny from stern to bow
    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I’m younger than that now.

    Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
    Too noble to neglect
    Deceived me into thinking
    I had something to protect
    Good and bad, I define these terms
    Quite clear, no doubt, somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I’m younger than that now.

  3. This is what smooching the heinder of the current president looks like. I wonder what these people want in return for their feigned outrage:

    Bennie Thompson, Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Adam Schiff, Zoe Lofgren, Pete Aguilar, Stephanie Murphy, Jamie Raskin and Elaine Luria.

  4. Roger McGuin, Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, then George Harrison, then the ripping Neil Young finale solo. Where have all the greats, the empaths and clairvoyants gone?
    Maybe its up to the rest of us?

  5. Americans have long thought that assembling together at DC was their right. Each transition or time of significant issue they felt welcome to attend. Historically it was a means of communication with Congress for example King’s dream speech, Women’s Marches, Father’s rights. Now that democrats are fundamentally changing/tampering with Constitutional rights Americans should never go to DC for any reason. DC’s constituents are the WEF, UN, foreign nations.

    • Guy. I don’t get you! It was the Trump loving REPUBLICANS that messed with the constitution. How can that even be debated?

      • It was President Grant and Great Britain for starters. Read Zbigneiw Brezezinski’s books for more clarity. They are not entertaining.

    • Just curious, did any of these example assemblies intend to prevent the congressional certification of the electoral votes or to hang the vice president?

      • WHO SAYS THE CERTIFICATIONS WERE EVEN DONE? Just ceremony. Not like other bankrupt corporations standing on ceremony.

  6. A star chamber determined to get scalps, settle personal scores, and ensure no one ever challenges the ruling elite (democrats and the media).

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    All it misses is the executions and political prisioners. Che would be proud.

  7. “I did not believe it for one second.” – Hannity deposition on purported Dominion Voting Systems fraud. Some media people will say anything for notoriety, clicks, and profit.

    • This is wildly intellectually vapid. And you know it.

      But since you want to engage in whataboutism, would you like an alphabetized, chronological, or breakdown by organization the metric tons of lies, distortions, and misinformation done by the left of center media? Regret if you want an exhaustive list it will takes months to collate due to the sheer volume.

      There is a montage of well over two minutes of talking heads on TV stating the walls were closing in on Trump and he was done. Just that-nothing more.
      And it’s at least two years old.

      Funny thing is, each and every one of them was proven wrong by events, investigations, and time.

      Let’s focus on one for right now. The years of denial and obstruction of Hunter Biden’s laptop. Or the financial links the Biden family has to Ukraine.

      I get your thing seems to be to do drive by trolling. You do you, boo. But it makes you look even more intellectually vacuous than ever.

  8. So my $500 contribution to the Trump campaign now has me on “The List”? How long will it be before my door is kicked in at 3AM? We as a nation are quickly arriving at a time we need to decide to hunt, or be hunted

      • Best $500 I ever spent. Remember when Trump went to Davis and through the gauntlet down before the international bankers? No other president in modern times had the stones to do that. Worth every penny, but if had been up to me, I would have put some guided mutations into that meeting

  9. What’s gonna be interesting is if the GOP had the stones to retaliate (they don’t), listening to the howls of outrage from the left

  10. How refreshing to learn that the J-6 committee has announced that it will investigate the Media! I refer to their intentions of course to root out media sources that have radicalized folks into hating their Government and America. I suggest that said investigation begin with the Washington Post, MSNLSD, CNN, NYT, Twitter, and the rest of the usual suspects who in cohoots with certain Federal alphabet agencies have conspired to steer elections in favor of the UNI- Party, Deep State machine.
    How about it you LEFTIES, you want a Goverment controlled press? Really?
    Think about where this ends up. 🤔

    • As usual, whatever whatever is being conveyed onto the other team is what they are doing. The mainstream super spreaders are without a doubt the ones that need to be investigated. See who is allowing them to keep operating without making a profit.
      It was never about overthrowing an election.
      It was all about having an a legitimate election.

    • The left does not care where this ends. History shows them it end bad, often bloody. But they do not care.

      It’s about the power gained here are now. Nothing else. They won’t be around to watch it burn.

  11. Let’s investigate the J6 committee and any wrong doing from them and their investigation. The execution of a woman in cold blood would be a place to start. Then the lack of a speedy trial and proper representation of the Americans charged with being at the capitol. Then let’s look at their tax records for illegal activities.

  12. What if… the Democrat Party cared about the illegal invasion of our Southern Border just half as much as it cares about destroying Trump?

    I mean to say, it’s Christmas and miracles can happen!

    Merry Christmas Comrade!

  13. It’s all about State rights now. We will need “no go zones” for keeping the feds in check. Going back to a territory may need to be considered. We do not fall under the “interstate commerce clause” this is a starting point.

  14. This entire committee and ‘investigation’ is a sick joke. Why is it even in the news? Everyone involved should go the way of Cheney and Kinzinger.

    • Paul,
      It’s in the news because the media doesn’t have room in their anti-Trump schedule for Hunter’s laptop.

  15. I have news for them, after the next swearing in, they are the ones that’s going to be investigated along with Hunter and Papa Joe. I hope the next committee will make the Mueller investigation, and the Hillary smash gate look like a girl scout sleepover.

  16. It probably doesn’t matter to all the right-wing MAGA people on here that the majority of witnesses were Republicans, and almost all of them Trump supporters. You’re all blind to the malignant narcissist that is Trump. My only hope is that DeSantis spanks him in the primary and he’s thrown onto the ash heap of history and remembered as the democracy hating, dictator-loving scumbag that he is.

    • “It probably doesn’t matter to all the right-wing MAGA people on here that the majority of witnesses were Republicans, and almost all of them Trump supporters……..”
      Ever hear the term, “hostile witness”? They drag you in, give you loaded questions, and publish the answers they can mold into their agenda, ignoring the rest. Besides, RINOs have been thorns in Trump’s side every bit as much as Demonrats all along. Half of them are Demonrats with Rs next to their names.
      No, it doesn’t matter to me one whit. I’m not Republican. Never have been (except for a couple months in 1991 so I could vote in a straw poll for Pat Buchanan…….the other guy the Uni-Party persecuted).

  17. Remember when the SAVE Anchorage mob descended upon Mayor B as he exited the Loussac last year ? That look of fear on Jamie Allard’s face was priceless as she realized that the monster that she helped create (credit to you too, Sue) was about to get way out of control ?

    Yes, take a bow, Sue, because your fingerprints are all over that one.

    Do you remember that ?

  18. A little verse summarizing the 6 Jan report:

    Once a beacon of light,
    A shining example of right,
    But now that virtue is lost,
    A shadow of its former self, tossed.

    Innocence and honesty,
    Were once traits that shone bright,
    But now they’re buried deep,
    Beneath a mountain of deceit.

    Oh, how the mighty have fallen,
    From grace and moral standing tall,
    The loss of virtue leaves a gaping hole,
    That can never again be filled, whole.

    RIP GOP

    • “……..RIP GOP”
      Let’s hope so. They’ll go the way of the Whigs, and for the exact same reason. Now, do you remember what happened to the Demonrats when the Whigs died?

  19. J6
    Some crazies and some frumps
    Thought to investigate Trump’s 
    Getting in the mix 
    Of January six
    A one-sided committee of grumps

    You did it they say
    And you’ll rue the day
    Our investigation 
    To your consternation 
    For inciting the fray

    But listen we’ll not
    To the other side’s rot
    That the cops let them in 
    Inciting the din
    We’ll just accuse the whole lot

    So short is our fuse
    Let’s move with this ruse
    Lest we be found out
    To our motives no doubt
    Can’t entertain the other side views

  20. Yawn…Just endless Trump Derangement Syndrome by the swamp and their media minions. These clowns will never let him rest. Yet all the rioting, burning, looting and murders in the summer of 2020 is swept under the rug.

  21. “The report also goes after certain unnamed media, saying that Congress “should continue to evaluate policies of media companies that have had the effect of radicalizing their customers, including by provoking people to attack their own country.””
    Well here’s a comment by a Democrat Senator from 1975 who was in charge of a committee.- ‘https://noagendaassets.com/enc/1671748860.812_onaugust171975senatorfrankchurchonnbcsmeetthepresswarningabouttechnologyperfectedbytheintelligencecommunity.mp3

  22. Why is there no mention of Ray Epps nor the individual placing the pipe bombs that got the Capitol shutdown?

    Both of whom are on camera.

  23. Not my writing but sums things up well. Anyone who does not see what is going on now wont ever get it. They are a cult member.
    The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.

    To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.

    Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.

  24. This all started long before we were born when the North and South refused to compromise in order to preserve the union. U.s
    senators of early 1850s at odds with party and region would see today’s america facing conquences of what
    they refused to do, or couldn’t do, before plummenting into civil war.

  25. The democrats have always been the party of slavery, persecution, racism, sexual perversion, covetousness, bearing false witness, murder, theft, sedition, and every form of evil known to Man. They are destroyers of all that is good, they will all reap the reward they deserve. And then and only then will they beg GODS GRACE.
