Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) on Thursday said Republicans have found evidence that the Jan. 6 committee investigating the U.S. Capitol riot has “violated House rules” relating to financial decisions.
With Republicans poised to retake the House following the 2022 midterm elections, Davis has written a letter, obtained by Just the News, to Jan. 6 panel chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) telling him to preserve all of the committee's records, including its communications.
“Given the on-going questions concerning the Select Committee’s compliance with federal law and House Rules, it is vital that the Select Committee preserve these records so that effective oversight may be undertaken,” Davis wrote, attacking the committee's legitimacy.
In an interview Thursday appearance on the “Just the News, Not Noise” television show, Davis said he is “not afraid to make criminal referrals” if the Jan. 6 committee does not follow his preservation order.
