Washington post Journalist Jacqueline Alemany told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that GOP representative Scott Perry is now a central figure in the select committee’s investigation.
Anyone who has been following the developments in the media investigation and now the work of the select committee could easily recognize that the average congressman or woman, the average senator, they all knew a lot more about the organization that existed on that day- there that he was never allowed to do so. to the public. The Committee seems to have known “who” to investigate from the start and is now focusing particularly on obtaining the right evidence.
Nancy Pelosi did not appoint Liz Cheney to the committee by accident. Cheney, we remember, is the one widely reported to have shouted at Jordan as the house was being raped, “You did that!” The “you” implies direct knowledge, limited either to Jordan himself or to a small group. Either way, it’s obvious Cheney already knew a plan existed.
The committee has now released information that makes it clear that Rep. Scott Perry is a member of that group and possibly part of this plan. Alemany told the morning shift that Cheney read one of Perry’s texts during the contempt of Meadows hearing last week:
“My colleague Tom Hamburger and I have confirmed that Scott Perry is, in fact, the lawmaker who sent this text to Mark Meadows which Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) read aloud last week to lead [Mark] Ready to please check your signal [encrypted app] and that immediately, I think, aroused the interest of the investigators ”,
“Listen, this letter is an important step forward for the committee and for the reporters who have covered the committee since its inception in July or early summer. The question has always been how the panel will deal with making the legislators in place cooperate with them, as we knew from the very beginning that people love [House minority leader] Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), [Rep.] Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Scott Perry were in touch with the president and his entourage about efforts to overturn the 2020 election result. “
The committee also wants to talk to Perry about his role in trying to install Trump loyalist Jeffery Clark as “Acting Attorney General” by sacking “Acting Attorney General Jeff Rosen.” It has been widely reported that Acting AG Rosen refused to sign a letter stating that the DOJ discovered significant fraud. Alemany noted that Perry was directly involved in the Clark installation effort, which could expose Perry to more criminal responsibility than even a role in the January 6 riot.
“… They had already obtained proof that [Rep. Bennie] Thompson repeated yesterday that [Perry] directly pressured [Department of Justice] officials to investigate these various fringe conspiracy theories. He also acknowledged in those talks with the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was the person who introduced Mark Meadows to Jeffery Clark, who also became a central player. There are so many different pieces that fit together here,
Whatever the objective, it is now very evident that Rep. Scott Perry is squarely in the middle of the select committee investigation and that the committee already has significant evidence pertaining to him as he seeks his testimony. It remains to be seen whether Perry will cooperate and the extent of that cooperation and that is one of the biggest questions facing the Committee.
As far as Perry resists cooperation, he has a primary concern to consider, the Committee already has significant evidence about him, that he – too, was one of those Cheney could have pointed out and said. : “You did that. ! “
