House Committees Seek Immediate Briefing On The FBI Investigation The Capitol Deadly Attack
Five Committees of the U.S. House of Representatives appealed to the head of the FBI with a demand to inform about the steps taken to prosecute all those involved in the riots in Washington, including the US President.
Committee on Oversight and Reform Chairman Carolyn B. Maloney, Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Adam B. Schiff, Committee on Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith and Member of Congress Stephen F. Lynch signed the letter with accusations against Donald Trump and Rudi Giuliani for inciting violent riot.
“We write to request an immediate and urgent briefing on the steps the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is taking to investigate and pursue for prosecution the instigation, planning, and execution of the deadly terrorist attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, by President Donald Trump, his supporters, and outside groups, as well as to disrupt any further activity designed to attack our government,” the Chairs wrote.
In their letter, the chairmen of the committees refer to quotes from the words of the President of the United States with calls for battle, Committee on Homeland Security reported.
“On December 19, President Trump tweeted: “Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election. Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be, there, will be wild!”
“At a rally yesterday, President Trump told his supporters: “We’re going [to] walk down to the Capitol...you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.”
“Rudy Giuliani, the President’s personal attorney, urged the President’s followers to march to the Capitol and engage in a “trial by combat.”
