January 6 Committee Exposed for Suppressing Evidence of Trump’s Actions To Halt Unrest

January 6 Committee Exposed for Suppressing Evidence of Trump’s Actions To Halt Unrest

The January 6 Committee, led by former Rep. Liz Cheney, has been exposed for suppressing evidence indicating President Donald Trump’s initiative for deploying 10,000 National Guard troops to safeguard the nation’s capital during the infamous incident.

This revelation comes from a transcript obtained by The Federalist, showcasing a stark contrast to the committee’s claim of having “no evidence” to corroborate Trump officials’ assertions.

During a transcribed interview on January 28, 2022, attended by Cheney, Deputy Chief of Staff Anthony Ornato detailed interactions where White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows urged Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser to request the National Guard troops needed for city protection.

Ornato recounted President Trump’s suggestion of needing 10,000 troops for maintaining peace during the January 6 events and expressed the White House’s frustration over the Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller’s delayed assistance response.

This significant interview was not only inaccurately characterized by the committee but also withheld from public scrutiny. In the wake of the suppression, allies of the committee circulated critical narratives and conspiracies about Ornato, a career Secret Service official temporarily detailed to the White House security position.

Rep. Barry Loudermilk, leading an investigation into the January 6 committee’s conduct, criticized the former committee for hiding Ornato’s testimony, which directly contradicted their established narrative.

“The former J6 Select Committee apparently withheld Mr. Ornato’s critical witness testimony from the American people because it contradicted their pre-determined narrative,” Loudermilk said. He highlighted Ornato’s confirmation of Trump’s offer to deploy National Guard troops, a proposition declined by Bowser.
