(RepublicanInformer.com)- A conservative activist linked to Steve Bannon answered questioned from congressional investigators on Monday regarding the January 6 melee at the Capitol.
Dustin Stockton, who previously worked with Bannon on the disastrous We Build The Wall crowdfunding campaign, has not been charged or implicated in the riot that occurred on January 6. But he is linked to the planning efforts behind the “Stop the Steal” rally that took place on that same day.
And because Stockton was heavily promoting a constitutionally protected rally, the January 6 select committee had him questioned. Stockton also made the mistake of assuming he was free to speak in defense of those who entered the Capitol on that day. And apparently, as far as the select committee is concerned, free speech is dead.
The fact is, many of the subpoenas issued by the partisan select committee are to people who were involved in the organizing of the permitted rally and not those involved in the subsequent riot.
The committee subpoenaed Amy Kremer from Women for America First and the organizer of the “Stop the Steal Rally,” Ali Alexander.
You see what’s going on here, right?
The objective of the January 6 select committee is to conflate the organized and permitted rally with the riot that occurred fifteen minutes away at the Capitol. It’s the only way they can implicate Donald Trump in the riot.
Rolling Stone said the quiet part out loud this week when they ran a story about the rally organizers holding meetings at which members of Congress were “intimately involved in the planning.”
Yes, planning the “Stop the Steal” rally for which the organizers received a permit from the city to hold.
The January 6 select committee is deliberately attempting to conflate these two separate events as all part of the same plot, and the corporate news media is helping them do it.
The first three rounds of subpoenas from the partisan witch hunt are all primarily targeting private citizens who participated in the planning of a peaceful, permitted demonstration.
When the co-director of the leftist Brennan Center’s Liberty and National Security Program, Elizabeth Goitein, is calling out the select committee for this egregious conflation, you know this committee is going too far.
Goitein said that there has to be a distinction between those who rioted and those who were “lawfully exercising their right to protest,” otherwise the committee is setting a “dangerous precedent.”
