Pelosi's Jan. 6 panel demanding phone records of Republicans

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan panel that has been told to “investigate” the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol has assembled a list of hundreds of people they will be contacting to obtain phone records.

The panel is expected to issue, ultimately, a one-sided report trumpeting Democrat claims that President Trump is somehow responsible for the dozens who broke into the Capitol, or sometimes were allowed in by security, and vandalized the place.

The rioting followed a rally earlier in the day at which President Trump urged his supporters to “peacefully” protect the adoption by Congress of the challenged 2020 presidential election race results.

Those remain under challenge in several states even though mostly partisan “fact-checkers” have claimed the election was completely clean without a hint of impropriety.

Pelosi, when setting up the committee, refused to allow participation by several Republicans nominated by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and instead picked a couple of members of the GOP who took her side against Trump, creating a strictly partisan group.

The panel reportedly is demanding records from telecommunications companies the records of Trump family members and many, many others.

Among those targeted in the political move are Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Lara Trump and Gon Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle.

While CNN reported the full list hasn’t been released yet, sources said others include: Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Paul Gosar also of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Jody Hice of Georgia and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania.

Brooks’ immediate reaction as that it was a waste of taxes, would be boring, and would amount to “Russian Collusion Hoax 2.0.”

Banks warned Rep. Bennie Thompson, a Democrat from Mississippi picked by Pelosi to manage her political move, that “rifling through” those records is an “authoritarian undertaking [that] has no place in the House.’

Thompson actually has revealed plans to seek the records of “several hundred” people.

“‘We have quite an exhaustive list of people,” he said.

Just days earlier, Pelosi’s panel sent letters to a long list of government agencies demanding detailed communications information about an equally long list of private individuals.

The panel insists on access to “a voluminous amount of records” that can be used to “expand” the “Nancy Pelosi witch hunt,” explained a report at Liberty Daily.

That report explained the bigger picture: “January 6th was a trap. It was contrived by the Deep State and Democrats to entrap patriots in an effort to suppress our rights to assemble and protest our government’s malfeasance. But with the initial stage of rounding up the ‘aggressors’ nearly complete, the January 6 Committee has given license to the Deep State to target anyone and everyone in contact with Donald Trump during the months leading up to the event.”

The only death by violence at the events that day was a protester who was shot and killed by police – reportedly without warning. Several other protesters died of natural causes.
