Counter Report by GOP Leadership Debunks House Select Committee Report

Are you tired of hearing about the extreme partisan report from the House Select Committee investigating the events of January 6, 2021? If so, take a look at another report released by five Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives. They have given their findings of a separate investigation that focused on the security failures at the U.S. Capitol on the same day.

The report comes from Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Troy Nehls (R-TX), Kelly Armstrong (R-ND), and Rodney Davis (R-IL), found that “leadership and law enforcement failures within the U.S. Capitol left the complex vulnerable on January 6, 2021” yet the “Democrat-led investigation in the House of Representatives, however, has disregarded those institutional failings that exposed the Capitol to violence that day.” 

All five of these GOP leaders were put forward by House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy to represent Republicans on Pelosi’s select committee. But after Pelosi rejected Reps. Banks and Jordan, the other three members withdrew from participation on the biased committee. 

These Republican leaders gave a statement released with their findings, “We knew she intended to play politics instead of addressing the massive security failures that lead to that day. We said then that we would investigate and get to the bottom of why the Capitol was left so unprepared that day, and what needs to be done to make sure our security apparatus is never left so unprepared again.”

They noted that the Select Committee spent almost no time on the issues in their report and they hope their report lays the groundwork for security reform and makes for a safer Congress. 

The report gives evidence of multiple failures that day by those responsible for security, but the most significant thing revealed is how it debunks Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s claim that she had “no power over the Capitol Police.” 

It’s clear that much of the narrative by the liberal media has been false.
