Today, Amy Kremer, Chair of Women for America First, the organization that hosted President Trump’s speech at the Ellipse on January 6th, issued the following statement regarding the current Democrat-led January 6th commission:
“We demand that Leader McCarthy immediately strip Reps. Cheney and Kinzinger of their committee assignments and that he convenes his own commission to seek real answers about what happened on January 6th. As the head of the organization that sponsored the President’s speech at the Ellipse, I would be happy to testify about the events leading up to and during that day, something I have never been asked to do by the Democrats in Congress.
“What we have seen on television today is an absolutely disgraceful attempt to gaslight the American people and an orchestrated attempt by Democrats in Congress and their friends in the media to not only destroy President Trump but to intimidate, silence and terrorize the 75 million Americans who voted for him.
“Reps. Cheney and Kinzinger should be humiliated for their willingness to play a part in this hyper-partisan farce, history will not remember them as the defenders of the Constitution – as they fancy themselves – but instead as accomplices to one of the most disgraceful and dishonest events to ever occur in Congress. If they want to be foot soldiers in Nancy Pelosi’s war against the GOP, then they should have to ask Pelosi for committee assignments.
“Leader McCarthy should convene his own commission, one that will commit to looking for answers about what really happened that day. A commission that will ask who shot Ashli Babbitt and why, one that will demand the full public release of all surveillance video and body cam footage, and one that will demand the release of all correspondence between Democratic leadership and the US Capitol Police, the Metro PD, the FBI, the Secret Service, and local law enforcement officials involved. Additionally, a new commission should demand the release the names of all FBI informants and undercover officials who participated in and encouraged the riots on January 6th, given what we now know about the FBI’s egregious behavior in the supposed plot to kill Michigan Governor Whitmer. The American people need to know the truth about the role the FBI played in the violence on January 6th.
“I am the head of the organization that organized and hosted President Trump’s speech on the Ellipse on January 6th. No one from my organization – myself included – has ever been asked by Congress about what happened that day. I would gladly testify before any commission.
“The American people deserve to know the truth, the time to act is now Leader McCarthy.”
