WASHINGTON (AP) — A House committee tasked with investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection is moving swiftly Tuesday to hold at least one of Donald Trump’s allies in contempt as the former president is pushing back on the probe in a new lawsuit.
Trump is aggressively trying to block the committee’s work by directing former White House aide Steve Bannon not to answer questions in the probe while also suing the panel to try to prevent Congress from obtaining former White House documents. But lawmakers on the House committee say they will not back down as they gather facts and testimony about the attack involving Trump’s supporters that left dozens of police officers injured, sent lawmakers running for their lives and interrupted the certification of President Joe Biden’s victory.

What is Trump trying to hide or obfuscate about January 6th? Conversely, what information does he want to prevent those looking for political gain from obtaining, that could be potentially be twisted into yet another smear campaign?
In a very general sense, I am wondering if this money and effort is going towards protecting Trump in a legal sense or if it is part of his political agenda?
My honest opinion is that Trump is trying to prevent some relatively innocuous information on January 6th from being twisted into a circus by political opponents and news outlets. If it were anything more, more decisive action would have already occurred.

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 commission’s ranking member.
Banks is, in fact, congressional Republicans’ 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, it’s Cheney who appears to be misrepresenting herself as the ranking member — that is, the top Republican — 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.
