The partisan Jan. 6 committee’s sham investigation has been many things since its inception, but a winning issue for the midterms doesn’t look to be on that list as recent moves have signaled Americans cannot afford to care.
When Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida, the committee had been scheduled to hold their ninth hearing just ahead of a scheduled break for Congress when representatives return to their districts. Rather than compete with wall-to-wall disaster coverage, the hearing was postponed and now it turns out they have, once again, postponed their official report.
Julie Kelly, a senior writer for American Greatness who has been at the forefront of reporting on Americans being detained without due process for entering the Capitol on Jan. 6 highlighted the third change in a release date for “The January 6th Report” and posted, “Lol after moving its original pub date from September to October, Jan 6 select committee now won’t release its report until after the election.”

The screenshot included with Kelly’s post showed the Amazon listing for the report with the new release date slated as Nov. 29.
One reply weakly suggested, “Because they don’t want to interfere with the election. It’s the ethical thing to do.”
Because they don’t want to interfere with the election. It’s the ethical thing to do.

However, that dismissed several facts including the two previously listed publication dates, and, as another Twitter user indicated, “If it’s published, they’ll have to defend it. This way, they can continue to refer obliquely to things without having to provide actual evidence until after no one cares anymore,” thus still impacting voter opinion leading into the midterms.
But of course. If it’s published, they’ll have to defend it. This way, they can continue to refer obliquely to things without having to provide actual evidence until after no one cares anymore.

With only four weeks remaining until Election Day, it would be expected that the parties would hone their messaging to focus strictly on the primary concerns of voters. When asked what are the top three issues, “inflation” and “jobs and the economy” were the far and away leaders according to a Data For Progress poll that also found inflation to be the top concern of Republicans at 63 percent with abortion still looming large for Democrats at 45 percent.
New Data For Progress (D) poll found that when voters were asked to list the 3 most important issues informing their midterm vote, abortion came in tied for 8th…

Furthermore, a YouGov poll found that 60 percent of registered voters feel the economy is only worsening, an increase of eight percentage points in a month’s time.

To that end, it’s worth noting that while Jan. 6 committee member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) had been spending time galavanting across Europe to fundraise off wealthy Democrats who aren’t living in the United States, his social media has not mentioned the committee in nearly a month. But he lauded President Joe Biden’s pot pardon and recently wrote, “Easing the strain of inflation. Dispatching urgent disaster relief. Helping Ukraine defeat Putin’s invading forces. Once again, House Democrats are delivering for our people, and championing democracy and freedom at home and around the world.”

Many folks took issue with the fact that after a long and expensive investigation, the J6 commission appears to be charging people for the report:
Ummmm since when do reports of investigations that we the tax payer’s have foot millions of bucks towards get released in a fricken book that we have to pay for WTF
— Kiss My Grits Liberals✌️✌️ (@Reversequestion) October 10, 2022
They’re charging money for it? LOL.

The postponed hearing has now been scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 13 for one last nudge at progressive voter enthusiasm before November, but as Liz Wheeler encapsulated with her response to Kelly’s post, it would seem that “They’ve got nothinggggggg.”

In June, McCarthy slammed the commission for making the report political and vowed to release a separate report. Stay tuned!
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy criticized Democrats for releasing their January 6 report on Amazon, calling it “political.” McCarthy said the GOP’s “alternative report” will be released “soon.”https://t.co/sc5YNrzTnh pic.twitter.com/X7Un8PIB8Z
