Jan. 6th Committee Issues Bipartisan Report Following Historic Investigation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th attack on our country issued a comprehensive report after a series of public hearings, conducting more than 1,000 interviews and reviewing hundreds of thousands of documents. The committee’s report contains detailed factual findings from its investigation, as well as a series of recommendations for policies and actions to ensure an attack like this never happens again.
Trevor Potter, founder and president of Campaign Legal Center and Republican Former Chairman of the Federal Election Commission, issued the following statement regarding the January 6th report:
“The January 6th attack on our country was a devastating example of what happens when partisan politicians sow distrust in our elections. We thank the House Select Committee members for their bipartisan work to fully investigate the circumstances of this horrific event, seek justice and hold bad actors accountable. Through a historic series of public hearings, the committee called attention to the organized attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. Today’s report delves further into the details of January 6th, and we look forward to reviewing the committee’s proposals.
“Although this report concludes the committee’s work, the job of strengthening our democracy is far from over. We remind public officials at all levels of government that the ongoing threat of election manipulation must be addressed. Campaign Legal Center has previously outlined the comprehensive actions we believe are necessary to safeguard future presidential elections, and we urge lawmakers to support these policies.”
