The Palmieri Report previously reported on the sham Jan 6thÂ committee pushing a massive lie in their Bernie Kerik Subpoena.
Now, we have this.
The sham committee just admitted that they made the mistake.
This further proves this is nothing more than a witch hunt.

The Democrat-led congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riots acknowledged Tuesday it made an error in a subpoena that falsely accused former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik of attending a secret meeting in Washington to allegedly discuss overturning the November 2020 election results on behalf of then-President Donald Trump.
The committee chaired by Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., acknowledged the mistake in a communication to Kerik’s lawyer just hours after Just the News reported that Kerik could not have attended the meeting in Washington on Jan. 5 as alleged in the subpoena because he was in New York City for a family emergency, according to his own phone and tollbooth records.
The subpoena had attributed the allegation by footnote to a book by famed Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward, But the book actually made no such claim and did not even mention Kerik by name a single time in 482 pages, Woodward told Just the News on Monday night.
The subpoena also cited two Washington Post articles, which also did not claim Kerik attended such a meeting.
“In advance of our deposition of Mr. Kerik, we wanted to correct an error in the letter accompanying the subpoena that you accepted on his behalf,” the committee wrote Attorney Tim Parlatore in a communication that did not address its footnote attributing the allegation to Woodward’s book but instead focused on one of the Washington Post articles.
“That letter indicated that Mr. Kerik participated in a meeting at the Willard Hotel on January 5, 2021, citing a Washington Post article dated October 23, 2021. The Post reports that Mr. Kerik was at the Willard around January 6 and that, according to Mr. Kerik, his firm billed the Trump campaign more than $55,000 for rooms,” the letter added. “The article does not say that he was at the Willard Hotel on January 5th, specifically, as the Select Committee letter indicates. Nonetheless, the Select Committee still believes that Mr. Kerik has information about efforts to evaluate claims of election fraud and other matters relevant to its inquiry.”
