Millions in U.S. taxpayer money was handed to the partisan Select Committee to conduct an “investigation” into the events of Jan. 6, 2021.
The committee hired former top boss at ABC News James Goldston as a “secret adviser” to produce 10 primetime hearings which crafted a narrative of a violent “insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol that, as Democrats’ so often insisted, was “the worst attack on American democracy since the Civil War.”

The Daily Mail’s David Marcus on March 7 noted just “how fitting” it was that what consumed two years and “an extravagant outlay of government resources would be thrown on the trash heap by a single cable news segment.”
On Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed never-before-seen footage from the J6 protests. Carlson said the video confirmed the members of the Select Committee were “liars.”
Marcus noted: “For all the effort and expense poured into the January 6th committee, why is America only seeing this footage now? The answer is obvious. It didn’t fit the Democrats’ narrative, so it was left out.”
Democrats, and anti-Trump Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, “sought to portray January 6th as an insurrection – inspired, led, and directed by Donald Trump,” Marcus wrote, adding the the committee “was easily undermined because it was all so obviously, blatantly disingenuous.”
The committee, Marcus continued, “couldn’t release video of the QAnon Shaman wandering through the Capitol building, taking selfies and walking past police because it muddies the narrative. And as a result, in all their maneuvering and selective editing and faux outrage, the January 6th committee failed.”
