GOP Rep. Perry says he won’t aid ‘illegitimate’ Jan.

Rape. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) has announced that he will not cooperate with the “illegitimate” House January 6 committee when he was asked to answer questions about the “Stop the Steel” rally at the Capitol. .

Perry is the first member of Congress to be stepped up by a January 6 committee, but the committee has sent dozens of subpoenas to former White House staffers of President Donald Trump.

During its months-long investigation, the committee has yet to provide any significant evidence to support allegations that the January 6 rally was the result of a premeditated plan to overthrow the US government, forcing the mostly-Democrat panel to Had to expand their search.

Perry has now announced that he does not intend to accept the committee’s requests.

Perry said, “I stand with great respect for our Constitution, the rule of law, and the Americans I represent, who know that this entity is illegitimate, and not duly constituted under the rules of the US House of Representatives.” Is.” in a twitter thread,

“I decline this unit’s request and will continue to fight the failures of the radical left, who seek a distraction from the blatant failures of inflation to crush, a humiliating surrender in Afghanistan, and the terrible crisis they have created on our border.” He continued.

The January 6 Commission, like many other policies and programs inaugurated under the Democratic Congress, was passed almost exclusively on party-line lines: all two Republican-Reps. Adam Kizinger (R-Ill.) and Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) voted against creating the commission.

The committee is led almost exclusively by Democrats, and Kizinger and Cheney are the only Republicans sitting on the panel after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-California) advised his caucus against running on the committee.

According to the January 6 Commission, the entry of protesters into the Capitol building on January 6 constituted a “rebellion” against the US government. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D.N.Y.), an ardent supporter of the committee, has attempted to reinforce this viewpoint by saying on twitter That the January 6 rally had “138 wounded, about 10 dead.”

No MPs were hurt and there was only one death as a result of the murder that day: that of Ashley Babitt, who was unarmed and shot under mysterious circumstances. Most of this single death has not been investigated by the committee.

According to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Ga.), President Joe Biden’s Justice Department has not filed any rebellion or treason-related charges against the protesters on Capitol Hill that day, according to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Ga.).

Still, those who participated in the January 6 rally faced shock treatment in a Washington prison, according to Green, who alleges that these defendants were denied bail, having their hair shaved or The right to bite has been called “white supremacist,” and barred their families from seeing, among many other serious “human rights violations.”

In addition, the January 6 commission, despite the power to collect phone and text records of Trump officials without warrant, has yet to establish or confirm whether any of these officials participated or what happened that day. Yes, it had some prior knowledge. ,

Earlier summons to the committee, including a summons from former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, have also been denied.

After Bannon ignored a January 6 committee subpoena citing his right to executive privilege, the January 6 commission responded with a contempt of Congress charge against the podcast host. The House later substantiated the charge and the Justice Department announced its intention to pursue a criminal investigation against Bannon, breaking decades of precedent.

A federal judge in charge of the case later issued an order barring both parties from publicly disclosing the documents. Bannon’s legal team has since challenged the move.

Trump’s former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows has also refused the commission’s summons after President Donald Trump advised him to decline the summons on grounds of executive privilege.

Like Bannon, Meadows faced a contempt of Congress charge that made its way through the House and was ratified on December 15. Meadows’ attorney has promised continued resistance against the January 6 committee’s demands, potentially setting the stage for a Supreme Court fight over the president’s right to executive privilege over legislative subpoenas due to a lack of litigation.

At one point during the hearing on Meadows, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) produced principled text messages between Meadows and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). These distorted images contained a quote never said by Meadows and cut out important context, a fact that the January 6 committee was eventually forced to confirm.

The committee’s recent decision to step out and turn on its arsenal of self-granted power over members of Congress, represents a significant change from the status quo.

Perry, as a current member of Congress, is cleared of charges of contempt of Congress, saving him from the same fate as Bannon and Meadows. But Perry could still be condemned by Congress, potentially alienating him from his committee’s actions.

In a highly controversial move, House Democrats took advantage of their slim majority in mid-November to denounce Rep. Paul Goser (R-Ariz) on Twitter over a cartoonish gag that depicted an Arizona Republican killing a heroic man. as was shown. Demonic beasts with the faces of prominent Democrats.

Goser defended the video as “symbolic” of a fight between Trump-style conservatives and progressive Democrats, but Goser ultimately saw his committee’s actions stripped of a party-line vote.

Democrats could attempt to pull the same stunt against Perry, but the January 6 committee has so far not responded to Perry’s denial.

Perry and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-California) did not immediately respond to a request for comment, if anything, on what they plan to do in response to the potential summons.
