Outspoken House Dem Has WILD Prediction for J6 Committee

Americans appear to be already bored of the select committee investigating January 6th, but the Democrats rooting for the group’s success remain obliviously optimistic about their work.

The committee itself was fraught from the start, as the GOP swiftly characterized the Democrat-led effort as nothing more than a witch hunt meant to damage Donald Trump’s reputation ahead of the 2024 election. Or, worse yet, that they’d steer the committee in the direction of recommending that members of Congress who appeared sympathetic to the rioters be disqualified from running for reelection.

But, despite the undeniable reality that this committee is conducting little more than a witch hut, at least one Democratic Representative seems to think that there will be revelatory moments for them in the coming weeks.

On a Thursday Zoom call with progressive activists, Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., said that the upcoming hearings by the Jan. 6 select committee probing the riot at the U.S. Capitol staged by supporters of former President Donald Trump will “blow the roof off the House.”

Raskin was sure of it.

“We are going to do everything we can to subpoena all the information we need and to enforce our subpoenas. But even if we don’t get every last person in there, we are going to have hearings that I believe will be compared to the Watergate hearings, because they are going to blow the roof off the House in terms of explaining to America what actually happened in the attack on our democracy,” Raskin, who sits on the select committee, told an audience of approximately 40,000 people who watched his remarks on Facebook.

Raskin’s enthusiasm could be dashed sooner rather than later, however, as the 2022 midterms are believed to be heading in the direction of a GOP majority in both houses of Congress – a possibility that would almost certainly see the committee itself disbanded…post haste.
