If you didn’t already know, there’s currently a Congressional Committee solely dedicated to finding a reason to throw Former President Donald Trump behind bars.
Using the Jan. 6 protests in D.C., which were infiltrated and perpetuated by Democrat insiders, including members of the FBI and Capitol Police, the witch hunters on Pelosi’s House Committee have begun recommending criminal charges for former Trump officials who refuse to cooperate with their investigation.
After harrassing nearly everyone associated with Trump or his administration, the Committee is now going after Trump’s personal information and will investigate an alleged phone call between him and his allies at the Willard hotel to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s election “victory.”
Rep. Bennie Thompson, chairman of the committee, confirmed it will look into the phone call and suggested it has already considered strategies to investigate it, he said in a recent interview.
Following the results of the 2020 election, several key allies of Trump — Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Boris Epshteyn, Steve Bannon, and others — held multiple meetings in the Willard hotel near the White House. It served as a “war room” of sorts for their operation to delay the certification of Biden’s election victory.
Trump communicated with allies of his at the Willard hotel on multiple occasions. He reportedly called some of them on Jan. 5 following a meeting he had with then-Vice President Mike Pence. Pence told Trump that he did not have the power to reject the Electoral College results. Getting Pence to reject the election results was a key part of the group’s strategy.
Thompson said that the committee has been trying to get key Trump White House records including information about Trump’s communication with his allies at the Willard hotel.
Trump previously claimed executive privilege over numerous documents the committee is interested in, but Joe Biden subsequently waived those privileges. A legal dispute over those records is still ongoing.
The committee has referenced the operation at the Willard hotel in several of its subpoenas, including one against Bernard Kerik, who worked for Giuliani. Kerik was not at the hotel during the meetings that took place on Jan. 5.
Thompson made it clear that the committee is interested in Trump’s involvement with operations at the hotel. Thompson told the outlet that the committee could not ask the National Archives for records on specific phone calls but might be able to get broad information about all the calls the White House made during Jan. 5 and Jan. 6.
The witch hunt continues!
