[WATCH] Jan 6th Committee Member Shares New Information Regarding Secret Service Texts Ahead of Final Primetime Hearing

Thursday night’s January 6th House Select Committee hearing will make the case for Donald Trump’s criminality and dereliction of duty as he watched thousands of his supporters lay siege to the Capitol under his orders from a TV in the White House Dining Room.

Earlier this week, the Secret Service turned over one text message to the panel, according to a committee aide who said lawmakers are still looking at ways to find the messages. The Secret Service has claimed many of their messages from January 5th and 6th were deleted and cannot be retrieved.

Secret Service officials say the wiped messages were part of a prescheduled “reset” of their phones. But House lawmakers have cast doubt on that explanation for the missing messages, which cover critical moments leading up to and through the January 6th insurrection. The text messages were requested before they were deleted. “Congress informed the Secret Service it needed to preserve and produce documents related to January 6th on January 16, 2021, and again on January 25, 2021, for four different committees who were investigating what happened, according to the source,” CNN reported Wednesday. “The Secret Service migration did not start until January 27, 2021.”

The Committee will also interview two live witnesses, both of whom were in the White House on January 6th and resigned later that night due to the President’s dereliction of duty.
