Looked and didn't see anything on how J6 committee has been withholding

evidence and interview transcripts from the DOJ?? Big news today

Remember this was a huge discussion here - about separation of government branches. Hard to buy into - when the ultimate goal is justice?

But will listen to the arguments again. Hope they have a good reason not to cooperate because that was some really bad image control, before their final report. IMHO 😊

Do wonder who is driving this? Which particular members? Hope it's someone with valid reasons!!! Jeez even the Chief Legal Correspondent on CNN said it was insane ( not to be cooperating)

1. The roll of the Congressional Committee

The committee was not set up to prosecute those responsible for and those who acted on 1/6. It is an investigative committee. If they were regularly shipping info off to those who were supposed to be investigating the crime, they would have been acting outside what the Congress charged itself to do. Below is a link to the resolution that established the 1/6 committee. Once they publish, they can and should share all that they have found with the public. None of this precluded Justice from doing its job of investigating and charging those who participated. I hope all who were involved end up in jail, and hopefully some of what the Committee found will help to put them there but, criminal prosecutions was not the job of the 1/6 committee.

2. Thanks!!! Only read it quickly but didn't see where it said

They had to withhold records until final report?

I'll reread

But what stuck out immediately was:

Whereas January 6, 2021, was one of the darkest days of our democracy,. If you don't bend over backwards to fully cooperate with that, when will you?

Yes, DOJ could have started but it says the J6 committee would attempt to avoid duplication of effort.

3. I think they were withholding to ensure that the conspirators

Could not get their story together. Once the records are released, itís a lot easier to keep from perjuring yourself.

6. Zoe Lofgren told Nicolle Wallace (maybe someone else)

that one of the reasons they wanted to keep them close to the vest was to avoid leaks*. The Committee has been very careful about strategically leaking info, usually to CNN, and it's been working well for them.

*I'm sure not necessarily to news orgs, but to others being investigated, too.
