Vanished! House panel chairman says J6 videotapes of witness interviews missing


By John Solomon

Videotapes of witness interviews that the Democrat-led Jan. 6 congressional committee conducted have vanished, raising concerns for the chairman of the successor House panel that is now examining security failures related to the Capitol riot as well as possible implications for upcoming criminal trials.

“All of the videotapes of all depositions are gone,” Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, told the “Just the News, No Noise” television show Thursday night.

Loudermilk said he believes under the House rules the videotapes qualified as congressional evidence because some clips were aired at hearings, and all the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct J6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss.

Thompson did not return a request for comment from Just the News left with his office.

“We found out about this early in the investigation when I received a call from someone who was looking for some information off one of the videotapes, and we started searching, and we had none,” Loudermilk explained. “I wrote a letter to Bennie Thompson asking for them. And he confirmed that they did not preserve those types. He didn’t feel that they had to.

“But according to House rules, you have to preserve any data and information and documents that are used in an official proceeding, which they did, They (J6 Democrats) actually aired portions of these tapes on their televised hearings, which means they had to keep those. But yet he chose not to, I believe they exist somewhere. We’ve just got to find where all these videos are.”

The revelation also could have implications for criminal trials being conducted in state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington where former President Donald Trump and allies are charged with crimes related to the Jan. 6, 2021 events. Trump’s legal team recently was turned down by a judge when he requested certain evidence from the Jan. 6 committee.

This is how Democrats conduct investigations and trails. They suppress the evidence that destroys their accusations and, whenever possible, prevent the defendants from presenting the evidence that exonerates them. Destroying the exculpatory evidence is a means of keeping the defense from presenting such evidence, which they have a right to have access to.

This kind of suppression would not have been possible had Pelosi followed her own rules and allowed Republicans to choose the Republicans that would be on the committee rather than installing two rino puppets. Unless Democrats can censor all the information, they don’t want there to be any investigations or trials, as we see with their opposition to House investigations into Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden’s corruption.

Lets check a certain University in Delaware.

Way past time to punish anyone (committee chair, government employee officer of court, Sec of State, etc) for failing to preserve any material that taxpayers paid for. Jail time mandatory!

All those involved in this scandal belong in Prison for Treason even if it involved the United Nations
