Congressman Burlison introduces resolution to rescind subpoenas issued by Jan. 6 committee

WASHINGTON- Southwest Congressman Eric Burlison (R-MO-07), and 24 of his colleagues, introduced a resolution to rescind the subpoenas issued by the illegitimate January 6th Committee for Stephen K. Bannon, Mark Meadows, Daniel Scavino, Jr., and Peter K. Navarro; to withdraw the recommendations that these individuals be found in contempt of Congress; and to require the Speaker of the House to notify the Department of Justice of these actions.

“It is past time for the House of Representatives to take action to begin undoing the harm that was caused by the illegitimate January 6th Committee.

“The Committee was nothing more than a political witch hunt to blame President Trump and his advisors for the events that took place on January 6, 2021, and influence the 2022 mid-term elections and 2024 presidential election.

“The Committee was legally deficient in its composition and was more focused on producing made-for-TV hearings than following House rules. The subpoenas that were issued were legally insufficient and should be rescinded, and the contempt of Congress referrals based on those subpoenas should be withdrawn. This is the right thing to do, and I hope all members of the House will join me in this effort,” said Rep. Burlison.
