The Jan 6th committee continues to be a sham.Â
GOP Rep Jim Banks is now exposing that the committee has been lying to witnesses before they testify under oath.

Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney ran to CNN a few weeks ago to accuse conservative stalwart Rep. Jim Banks of falsely presenting himself as the Jan. 6 commissionâ€™s ranking member. Banks is, in fact, congressional Republicansâ€™ choice to be their top investigator on the committee, but he has been prevented from fulfilling his duties by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
However, itâ€™s Cheney who appears to be misrepresenting herself as the ranking member â€” that is, the top Republican â€” on the committee.
January 6 Select Committee staff have been falsely telling witnesses that Republican staff will be present for interviews, according to multiple eyewitness sources and documents. In fact, not a single Republican-appointed member of Congress nor a single staff member representing the Republican conference is part of the controversial committee.
Witnesses are being told that John Wood, a longtime friend and ally of the Cheney family, will represent Republicans when witnesses testify. But neither Cheney nor her friend is representing the Republican conference. In fact, Cheney was appointed to the committee in early July by Pelosi herself.
â€œJohn Wood works for the Democrat Party, just like Liz Cheney, who was appointed by Pelosi and is not the Ranking Member of the Select Committee. She is misleading witnesses, before they testify under penalty of law, about the motives and the position of the person questioning them,â€ said Banks, who has continued leading Republicansâ€™ investigation of the federal governmentâ€™s handling of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Cheneyâ€™s work with CNN was designed to prevent him from being able to gain answers to the questions the select committee was ostensibly set up to answer.
Hill lawyers say Pelosiâ€™s handling of the committee casts doubt on its adherence to the rules. Because she vetoed the ranking member from the committee, it has no ranking member. But the committee rules require consultation with the ranking member before taking certain basic actions, such as taking depositions, including those pursuant to subpoenas.
â€œSo how can you consult with the ranking member when you donâ€™t have one?â€ asked one Hill attorney.
The multiple sources consulted for this article include a document which confirmed January 6 Committee staff represented to a witness that Wood would be the Republican counsel during their interview.
We are witnessing another kangaroo court set up by the Democrats and RINOs.
They are trying to shut down dissent.
