On Sunday, the chairman of the January 6th committee revealed that Trump’s former Attorney General William Barr has spoken to investigators.
• Congressman Bennie Thompson, Democrat from Mississippi and chairman of the committee, said in an interview with “Face the Nation.”
• The committee became interested in the former Attorney General after a draft of an Executive Order was published by Politico.
• The document is believed to have been drafted on December 16, 2020, but it is unknown who wrote it. The order would have authorized the secretary of defense to “seize, collect, retain and analyze all machines, equipment, electronically stored information, and material records required for retention” under a federal law governing the retention and preservation of election records.
• The committee also wants to know if any Pentagon officials were involved in the draft of the E.O and if anyone will even entertain the possibility of seizing voting machines.
• The Radicals Democrats also claim that individuals filed false documents claiming they were responsible for conducting and certifying elections.
• The January 6th committee chairman said in a statement, “When you falsify documents, in most instances, that’s a criminal act,” he said, noting that the Justice Department would make any decision on possible prosecutions.
• Public hearings are expected to begin in the spring
• The committee said we will present the facts to the public. We plan to have a series of public hearings showing Trump’s intent to use federal assets, the Department of Justice, the Department of Defense, and other agencies to stop the duly election of a president.
