CU President David Bossie discusses new documentary on 'Hannity' 


BREITBART: Documentary Blows the Lid off the $400 Million Zuckerberg Effort for Biden

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg spent nearly $400 million on the 2020 presidential election in an effort to bolster then-candidate Joe Biden and quash former President Donald Trump, a documentary film from Citizens United Productions, Rigged: The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump, details.

The 40-minute documentary blows the lid off the tech billionaire’s efforts, alongside left-wing operatives, to unseat Trump under the guise of providing aid to assist with safety in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. These leftists essentially dumped private funding into government elections, creating an artificial groundswell of get-out-the-vote efforts for Biden, whose public enthusiasm levels clearly waned throughout the election cycle, prompting jokes about the then-candidate hiding in his basement.

Overall, Zuckerberg spent $400 million in 2020 — only $61 million short of the $461 million the Democratic National Committee (DNC) spent in both 2019 and 2020.

The explosive documentary details just how these left-wing operatives sprinkled “Zuck Bucks” in various areas around the country to influence the election. All of this is documented via 990 forms non-profit groups file with the IRS.

Specifically, the documentary “traces the river of cash flowing from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to a pair of 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR).” Interestingly, the Chan Zuckerberg Institute happens to involve a number of well-connected Democrat players, including former President Obama’s former campaign manager, David Plouffe, whom the press release describes as the institute’s “Strategist in Residence.” Joel Benenson, the chief strategist for twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, also conveniently served as an adviser at the institute.

The CTCL, which received roughly $328 million in Zuckerberg money, awarded about 2,500 grants around the country. And while Zuckerberg’s team claims that Trump areas were awarded more money than Biden areas, the documentary explains how that assertion is “enormously, and perhaps purposely, misleading, because of the approximately 160 grants of $400,000 or more – totaling some $270 million – an incredible 92 percent of those funds went to jurisdictions carried by Joe Biden in 2020.”

As Breitbart News detailed consistently throughout the election year, Democrats used the Chinese coronavirus pandemic to usher in new voting rules under the guise of public safety, and that is exactly what “Zuck Bucks” operated under as well, as the grants were purportedly designed to assist with the “safe administration of public elections” throughout the pandemic. In other words, this money rushed to Democrat strongholds, as well as key swing areas, under the guise of addressing pandemic needs. Yet, that is not what they really intended it to do.

“This is all about the great intention of, hey, we’re gonna make it more secure,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says in the documentary, as hardly any of the money went toward Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

“We’re gonna make it more safe. We want to make sure that people feel comfortable coming to the poll, but that’s not what they ended up doing,” Landry added, as these jurisdictions used the money to push Democrat objectives such as universal mail-in voting and ballot drop boxes, just as two examples. In other words, the money was used to create an artificial buzz benefiting Joe Biden. The money itself went to nearly every state– 48/50, including Democrat strongholds. According to the documentary, this strategy — dumping money in areas that Biden was sure to win (California) and sure to lose (Texas) “reveals that a secondary aim of the plan was to score a public relations victory by padding Biden’s popular vote tally, in the event that he lost narrowly in the Electoral College.”

Essentially, “Zuck Bucks” ultimately “pressured” governmental entities to adopt these radical Democrat ideas to transform the election, pushing mail-in ballots and increasing the number of ballot drop boxes, both of which stand as a “rampant invitation” for fraud, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) notes in the documentary. Ultimately, the film notes that the coronavirus provided the “perfect cover” for Zuckerberg’s money to go to work in crucial battleground states, fulfilling the Democrat mantra of never letting a crisis go to waste.

Further, the film specifically focuses on three key battleground states, which Biden won by slim margins — Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia.

CTCL dumped $860,000 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for example, and another $1.2 million in Green Bay and Madison, $1.7 million in Racine, and $3.4 million in Milwaukee. Similarly, the documentary reveals that $5.1 million of the Zuckerberg money went to Arizona. What is more, “four difference-making counties – Maricopa, Pima, Apache, and Coconino – received nearly 76 percent of the grants, and all were carried by Joe Biden,” per the press release. Notably, Biden won Arizona by less than half a percentage point, or fewer than 11,000 votes.

Perhaps most stunningly, $50 million in grants from both CTCL and CEIR went to the Peach State:

A whopping 94 percent of the CTCL funds in the state went to jurisdictions carried by Biden. Additionally, the consent decree signed off on by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger undercut the process for matching signatures on absentee ballots and restricted the ability to challenge contested ballots.

“In my mind, they were clearly rigging the election,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says in Rigged. “I’m not convinced that the election was stolen on Election Day. I think the bigger story was that across the whole country for months, there was an effort to rig the election to make it virtually impossible for Trump to win.”

“We’ll follow the money and uncover the startling facts behind Election 2020,” Citizens United President David N. Bossie, who narrates the documentary, said. “In order to answer the question once and for all: What happened? And to ensure it never happens again.”

Former President Trump, who speaks in the film, noted that Zuckerberg was “putting money under the guise that he’s going to open up the election,” deeming it “crap.”

“That’s all crap. Not gonna open it up. He’s closing it. He’s making it impossible for a Republican to win,” he said.

Ultimately, the documentary is aiming at raising awareness of the powerful influence Zuckerberg and left-wing operatives had in the 2020 election, pulling strings behind the scenes and using the distraction of pandemic panic as a means to take down Trump.

“He should totally be held accountable,” Trump says in Rigged. “And he should never be allowed to do it again. And nobody else should. It was a rigged election. People have to find out what happened and they have to hold people accountable.”

The documentary will premiere at Trump’s “Winter White House” Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, on April 5, 2022. Viewers can watch the film after the premiere at www.Rigged2020.com.


Citizens United Productions exposes $400M Democrat Voter Turnout Operation Funded by Mark Zuckerberg

Rigged: The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump  premieres April 5 at Mar-a-Lago

In 2020, almost $400 million of Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg's charitable contributions were spent – with most of the funds funneled to government elections offices in critically important jurisdictions for Joe Biden - to finance get-out-the-vote efforts aimed at defeating President Donald J. Trump. A new 40-minute documentary film from Citizens United Productions, titled Rigged: The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump, goes into painstaking detail of the plot orchestrated by liberal operatives who used the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse for the private funding of government elections offices with the intent to drive voter turnout for Democrat candidate Joe Biden.

The documentary will premiere at President Trump’s historic Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, FL on April 5, 2022. The trailer is available for viewing now at www.Rigged2020.com, where the movie will be available for download on April 5.

Relying on the 990 forms non-profit groups must file with the Internal Revenue Service, Rigged traces the river of cash flowing from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to a pair of 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR). CTCL received $328 million in “Zuck Bucks,” while CEIR was given $69 million.

To put these figures in perspective, Zuckerberg spent nearly $400 million in 2020, while the Democratic National Committee spent a total of $461 million in the two years of the election cycle, 2019 and 2020.

“So, he’s putting money under the guise that he’s going to open up the election and all of that,” says President Trump in the film. “That's all crap. Not gonna open it up. He’s closing it. He’s making it impossible for a Republican to win.”

“We’ll follow the money and uncover the startling facts behind Election 2020,” says Citizens United President David N. Bossie, who hosts and narrates Rigged. “In order to answer the question once and for all: What happened? And to ensure it never happens again.”

The “Strategist in Residence” at the Chan Zuckerberg Institute is none other than David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s former campaign manager. Joel Benenson, the chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, has also been employed by the Chan Zuckerberg Institute as an advisor. For its part, CTCL was founded by Tiana Epps-Johnson and Donny Bridges, who also worked together at the New Organizing Institute, a group labeled by The Washington Post as the “Democratic Party’s Hogwarts for digital wizardry.”

“In my mind, they were clearly rigging the election,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says in the film. “I’m not convinced that the election was stolen on Election Day. I think the bigger story was that across the whole country for months, there was an effort to rig the election to make it virtually impossible for Trump to win.” “$400 million is the most money any individual has ever spent to win a presidential campaign in the history of our country,” Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) says in the film.

There were roughly 2,500 grants awarded by the CTCL across the country. They have claimed that more Trump jurisdictions received grants than did Biden jurisdictions. However, records indicate that this statistic is enormously, and perhaps purposely, misleading, because of the approximately 160 grants of $400,000 or more - totaling some $270 million - an incredible 92 percent of those funds went to jurisdictions carried by Joe Biden in 2020.

The grants given to government elections offices were described as facilitating the “safe administration of public elections during the COVID-19 pandemic.” But even a cursory examination of the eventual expenditures - by outlets like NPR - shows that a tiny fraction of the money was spent on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

“This is all about the great intention of, hey, we’re gonna make it more secure,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says in Rigged. “We’re gonna make it more safe. We want to make sure that people feel comfortable coming to the poll, but that’s not what they ended up doing.”

Instead, the funds were used to increase mail-in voting and drop boxes, to hire and train poll workers, to expand voter registration efforts, and to encourage people to vote early and by mail. In short, with the huge majority of the money supporting jurisdictions won by Joe Biden, the effort amounted to an enormous get-out-the-vote campaign in key Democrat areas.

“On a locality-by-locality basis, government was not a neutral player,” says Ken Cuccinelli, National Chairman of the Election Transparency Initiative. “Under the banner of nonpartisan funding, it engaged in political activities, specifically get-out-the-vote activities in Democrat areas.”

“I don't think we have to blame China or voting machines,” Cleta Mitchell, a Senior Legal Fellow of the Conservative Partnership Institute/Election Integrity Project, says in the film. “I think we can look straight in the eye of Mark Zuckerberg and all these left-wing groups that infiltrated the offices with half a billion dollars. And that’s why Joe Biden won.”

The Zuckerberg money was distributed in 48 states, including heavily populated Democrat areas like Los Angeles, California and New York, New York – in states which Biden was sure to win - and Dallas, Texas, in a state which Biden was sure to lose. This reveals that a secondary aim of the plan was to score a public relations victory by padding Biden’s popular vote tally, in the event that he lost narrowly in the Electoral College.

The film, however, focuses on three battleground states in particular - Wisconsin, Arizona, and Georgia - where Biden’s combined margin of victory was roughly 42,000 votes. Those three states were the difference in handing Biden an Electoral College win.

Wisconsin

CTCL’s January 2022 tax filing shows grants of $860,000 to Kenosha, $1.2 million to both Green Bay and Madison, $1.7 million to Racine, and $3.4 million to Milwaukee. These five predominately Democratic cities received approximately $8.5 million of the $10.1 million that flowed into Wisconsin.

Arizona

CTCL’s tax filings show how $5.1 million of Zuckerberg’s money was spent in Arizona. Four difference-making counties - Maricopa, Pima, Apache, and Coconino - received nearly 76 percent of the grants, and all were carried by Joe Biden. Improbably, Biden exceeded Clinton’s 2016 vote totals in the funded counties by an incredible 700,000 votes.

Georgia

CTCL and CEIR sent a combined total of $50 million to Georgia. A whopping 94 percent of the CTCL funds in the state went to jurisdictions carried by Biden. Additionally, the consent decree signed off on by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger undercut the process for matching signatures on absentee ballots and restricted the ability to challenge contested ballots.

The Fallout

An increasing number of states have enacted laws that will forbid the private funding of government elections offices in the future. Similar pieces of legislation have passed in other states but have been vetoed by Democratic governors. But the public is becoming more aware of how Zuckerberg's money was spent in 2020.

“He should totally be held accountable,” Trump says in the film. “And he should never be allowed to do it again. And nobody else should. It was a rigged election. People have to find out what happened and they have to hold people accountable.”

The Film

Directed by Jason Killian Meath and written by David N. Bossie, Jason Killian Meath, and JT Mastranadi, Rigged features exclusive interviews with President Donald J. Trump, Speaker Newt Gingrich, Senator Ted Cruz, Attorney General Jeff Landry, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, Congressman Jody Hice, Kellyanne Conway, Ken Blackwell, Ken Cuccinelli, Cleta Mitchell, Michael Gableman, Janel Brandtjen and Scott Walter, and follows the money and uncovers the startling facts of the 2020 election in order to present what happened and to ensure it never happens again.

Citizens United Productions

Since 2004, Citizens United Productions has produced 26 other hard-hitting and insightful documentary films, including the award-winning Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny and Nine Days That Changed The World, hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich. Other notable titles include Perfect Valor with the late Fred Thompson; The Gift Of Life with Mike Huckabee; Border War; Generation Zero directed by Stephen K. Bannon; Torchbearer starring Phil Robertson; and Hillary The Movie, the catalyst for Citizens United’s landmark victory for free speech rights at the U.S. Supreme Court.

WASHINGTON TIMES: Does the judge in the Sussmann case have a conflict of interest?

In the course of an ongoing legal proceeding, when it’s discovered that a defense lawyer, prosecutor or presiding judge’s spouse is representing an individual who might be a witness in the case, is that grounds for recusal?  

That’s the glaring issue at hand that the mainstream media is ignoring in a high-profile criminal trial that will expose the Hillary Clinton campaign’s efforts to frame former President Donald Trump with phony evidence of colluding with the government of Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. Even though the Russia hoax has long since been debunked, it has now boomeranged on some people involved in concocting the scheme.

Eyebrows were raised recently when U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper chose to call out prosecutors in the office of Special Counsel John Durham at a court hearing over a filing made by Durham’s team that contained previously unknown details about their investigation. The filing in question added fuel to the allegations that there was a spying operation against Mr. Trump before his election and during his presidency.

The defendant in the case is Michael Sussmann, a lawyer who stands accused of making false statements to the FBI about who he was representing when he met with then-FBI General Counsel James Baker to “brief” him about fabricated Trump-Russia connections. Government prosecutors are alleging that Mr. Sussmann was briefing Mr. Baker on behalf of the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign but failed to divulge the sinister arrangement.

Judge Cooper, an Obama appointee, seemed to be putting the prosecution on notice about publicly disclosing factual evidence that might paint Democrats in a bad light. Judge Cooper said, “Keep in mind that the pleadings, in this case, are under a microscope and may be employed for one reason or another by folks for reasons that have nothing to do with the ultimate issues in this case.” Although it’s commonplace for government lawyers to include new facts in court filings, some viewed Mr. Cooper’s decision to address the controversial filing in this fashion as an act of chutzpah.

The reason being is Judge Cooper has a conflict in this case. If you believe in small worlds, Mr. Cooper’s wife Amy Jeffress represents former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who became infamous for her outrageous text messages with former FBI agent Peter Strzok when they were overseeing the hyper-politicized Crossfire Hurricane investigation of then-candidate Donald Trump. Ms. Jeffress previously worked in senior positions at the Obama Justice Department under the leadership of Attorney General Eric Holder. The fact that the Durham filing asked Judge Cooper to review potential conflicts involving Mr. Sussmann’s attorneys makes the whole situation even more ironic.

The questions that come to mind as to whether Judge Cooper should recuse himself from the Sussmann case are common sense.

Is Lisa Page a witness in the Sussmann case?

Did Ms. Page or Mr. Strzok meet with Mr. Sussmann?

Did Mr. Baker discuss his meeting with Mr. Sussmann with Ms. Page?

Was Ms. Page involved in setting up Mr. Baker’s meeting with Mr. Sussmann?

Has Special Counsel Durham’s office interviewed Ms. Page?

Has Special Counsel Durham reviewed testimony Ms. Page has given in other investigations?

These are all matters that Ms. Page’s attorney would be involved in, and the American people deserve answers. Many believe that if this were a case involving a Republican-appointed judge in a trial concerning a Republican, a recusal would have been demanded and carried out long ago. The corporate mainstream media’s refusal to cover this double standard is just the latest failure in a parade of miscalculations involving their coverage of the Trump-Russia lie.

There should be a public debate about whether it is proper for Judge Cooper to preside in the case of the United States v. Michael Sussmann. To the average American, these connections raise concerns about whether there is one set of rules in our justice system for elitists and another set of rules for everyone else. After everything our country has endured since the 2016 election, all in the name of “getting” Mr. Trump by any means necessary, from the Mueller investigation to the Michael Flynn debacle, to the Carter Page FISA warrants, to Rep. Adam Schiff’s impeachment flop, it’s a good time for some honesty and transparency. That would help restore some trust.

It’s tough to remember a time in history when so much was riding on a trial involving a one-count indictment, but everyone is well aware of the stakes here. That’s why it’s so critically important — after all the missteps — for the government and the mainstream media to get this right. Judge Cooper’s recusal and fair coverage of it would be a good start.

WASHINGTON TIMES: THE DESPERATION OF THE JAN. 6 HOUSE COMMITTEE

The illegitimate January 6 Committee was in dire need of another fake news headline to stay relevant, and it sure got one.

“Jan. 6 Committee Lays Out Potential Criminal Charges Against Trump,” screamed the headline from The New York Times in their latest anti-Trump screed. There’s just one problem with this – congressional fact-finding committees can’t file criminal charges. Not to mention, the politicized select committee appears to have already decided on its preferred conclusion before completing its investigation.

Recently, the committee that’s made up of seven Democrats, two Republicans in name only, and zero Republicans made a politically-inspired filing in a federal civil case alleging that President Donald Trump engaged in a criminal conspiracy while he was trying to make sure only valid votes were counted in the 2020 presidential election. Only faux prosecutors on a phony committee perpetually abusing its power would think concocting this story was a good idea. This new court filing is just the latest act of desperation by a committee that set expectations way too high and is now trying to do something to satisfy the Trump-haters who are frothing at the mouth.

Instead of holding a public hearing or releasing a report laying out their findings, this unhinged legislative body continues to behave like a prosecution conducting a secret grand jury investigation. And rather than focusing on the tragic events of January 6th, the committee continues to operate with a reckless disregard for House rules and precedent. Witnesses have no due process rights in this inquisition and have suffered from the committee’s repeated abuse of its limited constitutional authority.

The January 6 Committee’s pathological pursuit of former President Trump wreaks havoc on the American legal system. The most recent collateral damage from the gang that couldn’t shoot straight also happens to be the oldest evidentiary privilege in law: The Attorney-Client Privilege. This privilege protects every American’s right to candid, confidential conversations with legal counsel. It helps counsel provide reliable advice to clients and encourages clients to share complete information with their counsel. This sacrosanct privilege is most important during times of massive government overreach and prosecutorial abuse. As we have seen over the past few months, the January 6 Committee represents the worst of both these flaws.

The committee’s filing in the District Court for the Central District of California is an opposition research document borne from partisan hands. It’s completely frivolous, and the Members of Congress and committee lawyers responsible for the filing should be referred to the House Ethics Committee for investigation. This outrageous filing would have you believe that only Democrats are permitted to contest election results in our country. Even The New York Times wrote in describing the document that “the filing disclosed only limited new evidence….” There’s a reason for that; the January 6 Committee has laid a big goose egg.

How desperate has the committee become? It’s now targeting lawyers for the sin of advising then-President Trump in his official capacity.

Law professor and renowned constitutional scholar John Eastman is only the latest target. According to the committee’s most recent court filing against him, Mr. Eastman’s alleged crime is that he provided legal advice to a sitting President of the United States regarding technical interpretations of the Electoral Count Act.

That’s it; that’s the sum of their case. But providing confidential legal counsel is precisely the reason why the attorney-client privilege exists. If it did not exist, your average American would stand before government tribunals without the full protection of counsel. As for Professor Eastman, President Trump had every right to review all of his constitutional options.

This sham committee should do something in the open for a change and release the transcripts of all 650 interviews it’s conducted to date.

The American people deserve complete transparency from this opaque unconstitutional prosecution conducted by partisan Washington politicians. Let the people read all the evidence themselves and draw their own conclusions.

It’s becoming obvious that the January 6 Committee is on life support. They’ve telegraphed that they plan to hold hearings in April and issue a report in June. If they had the goods, they wouldn’t limit themselves to just two months of hearings. And moreover, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, and Committee Co-Chair Liz Cheney certainly wouldn’t release a report that will get lost going into the long hot summer if it had any chance of hurting GOP prospects at the ballot box in November. Maybe, just maybe, the Democrats have decided to wrap up their failed inquisition and do something the American people care about, like trying to fix the inflation, crime, and border crises they created before the midterm tsunami wipes them out.

WASHINGTON TIMES: DAVID BOSSIE: The political desperation of the Jan. 6 committee

Republican-in-name-only Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger have been propping up the illegitimate Jan. 6 select committee and assisting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in her quest to retain the speaker’s gavel for seven months now.

The mainstream media has made it a priority to play along and protect this sham investigation at all costs because their hatred for former President Donald Trump won’t quit, even though he’s been out of office for more than a year. But as we approach the midterm elections and watch Democrat prospects drop in the polls like a lead balloon, reality is starting to set in.

This committee and its allies in the anti-Trump fake news industry have raised expectations to a level they have no chance of meeting, and that’s why they’re expanding their investigation into everything but the Jan. 6, 2020, riot at the U.S. Capitol Building. It’s called political desperation. Over the past year, Democrat policies have caused skyrocketing inflation, a spike in violent crime, a border crisis, critical race theory outrage and mask mandate hysteria. The left is seeking to change the subject with its latest witch hunt of Mr. Trump, but it won’t work.

Make no mistake about it, the entire Jan. 6 committee undertaking is political. Ms. Cheney has continuously stated that her priority is to make sure Mr. Trump isn’t allowed back in the Oval Office for another term as president. Ms. Cheney is misusing this taxpayer-funded committee as the vehicle to try to accomplish her goal. When Republicans regain the majority in the U.S. House after the midterm election in November, the committee will be shuttered because it’s an un-American inquisition that makes a mockery out of checks and balances, minority rights, historical precedent and the rules of the House. This means that Ms. Cheney can only accomplish her goal if Mrs. Pelosi remains speaker of House in the next Congress. Another two years of Mrs. Pelosi in power would be catastrophic for our constitutional republic, but that’s exactly what Ms. Cheney and Mr. Kinzinger are fighting for every day.

In Ms. Cheney’s recent op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, titled, “The Jan. 6 Committee Won’t Be Intimidated,” she writes, “those who do not wish the truth of Jan. 6 to come out have predictably resorted to attacking the process — claiming it is tainted and political.” When the Republican National Committee recently censured Ms. Cheney and Mr. Kinzinger, it marked the first time anyone associated with the Jan. 6 committee has been subject to a “check and balance” since its inception on July 1, 2021.

Ms. Cheney cries foul and accuses people of attacking the process and being against the truth because she doesn’t like being called on the carpet for participating in a fraudulent investigation. Never before in our nation’s history has a congressional committee that consists of seven Democrats, two RINOs, and zero real Republicans been allowed to proceed — let alone granted legitimacy — as an investigative body that represents the will of the people.

The American people should be concerned with how the Jan. 6 committee is set up. This panel is operating more like a secret grand jury that is abusing its deposition power, subpoena power and contempt power on a routine basis. Are career politicians and journalists going to treat the select committee on Biden Family Corruption that’s coming next year with the same indifference? Let’s be clear — you can’t wreak havoc on rules and precedent just because Mr. Trump is the target; America doesn’t work that way. When the RNC resolution passed, the biased corporate media went “all in” to protect this committee just like it protected the failed Mueller and Schiff investigations.

With all due respect to Ms. Cheney, the committee she’s leading is both “tainted and political” for obvious reasons. Look no further than her unfortunate reaction to the censure resolution. She immediately took to social media — in an act of pure political theater — to advance the liberal media’s big lie that RNC members think breaking into the U.S. Capitol Building and causing a riot is “legitimate political discourse.”

This is a disgusting smear by people who know better. The truth is that the horrible events of Jan. 6 caused by the people who broke into our nation’s shrine of democracy aren’t the focus of Ms. Cheney’s political circus, and everyone knows it. The committee is instead focused on Speaker Pelosi’s political enemies. Just look at the bloated subpoena list. It’s a who’s who of Trump supporters who were either not in Washington on Jan. 6 or had nothing to do with the riot. Innocent Americans asking tough questions about the administration of a razor-thin unprecedented pandemic election dominated by absentee ballots, untested universal mail-in voting, and insecure drop boxes is a protected act in our country whether the elites like it or not.

If the Jan. 6 committee were truly interested in facts and opposed exaggeration as Ms. Cheney claims, it would not be doctoring and selectively leaking text messages and turning a blind eye to exculpatory evidence that the Department of Justice is making public in indictments of the actual rioters.

If the committee had an operating minority with real Republican members, complete with staff, resources and rights, surely it would have publicized the news that one of the rioters typed a message on Jan. 6 about Mr. Trump that said, “I see no intent by him to do anything. So the patriots are taking it into their own hands. They’ve had enough.” Ms. Cheney could level with the American people about the importance of this evidence in her search for the truth, but it doesn’t fit her narrative.

In 1998 former Democrat Rep. Henry Waxman, who was the ranking member of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee at the time, wrote in a congressional report that “successful congressional investigations have always been conducted on a fair and bipartisan basis. The best investigations have gone to great lengths to involve the minority and protect the rights of minority members.” Waxman was right then, and he’s right now almost 25 years later. The Jan. 6 committee would be wise to follow Mr. Waxman’s example and change course.
