Was there any question that the January 6th Committee is nothing but another witch hunt?
We had 4 years of baseless witch hunts against Trump.
And even when he’s out of office, they needed to create yet another witch hunt against him.
By now, you might’ve seen those text messages from Trump allies during the January 6 protest at the capitol.
Some of those text messages include people from Fox News.
But there’s only one problem.
It turns out that many of those messages were DOCTORED!
That’s right: these were edited texts made to make Trump and his allies look bad.
Take a look at the coverage from the media regarding the texts:
January 6th texts doctored! Discussing that and more on Fox News with @seanhannity shortly.
Tune in now!

The January 6 committee needs to be disbanded immediately. If Adam Schiff is already doctoring text messages, then I can only imagine what the rest of the committee is doing.
Shut it down.

Adam Schiff needs to be removed from office for manipulating Mark Meadows's text messages.
There should be zero debate about this.

Unfortunately, the doctored texts messages weren’t just read to Congress.
They were also read to millions of people across the country.
Both CNN and MSNBC covered the hearings that uncovered these text messages.
But it turned out they were purposefully edited to make Trump look bad.
According to Breitbart:
One message, which Schiff attributed to a Republican lawmaker, was doctored to read: “On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.”
But the original message came from former Department of Defense Inspector General Joseph Schmitz, who had drafted and summarized legal arguments that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) forwarded to Meadows. And Schiff left out the full exchange, which read (emphasis added):
On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all the electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all — in accordance with guidance from founding father Alexander Hamilton and judicial precedence.
‘No legislative act,’ wrote Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 78, ‘contrary to the Constitution, can be valid.’ The court in Hubbard v. Lowe reinforced this truth: ‘That an unconstitutional statute is not a law at all is a proposition no longer open to discussion.’ 226 F. 135, 137 (SDNY 1915), appeal dismissed, 242 U.S. 654 (1916).
Following this rationale, an unconstitutionally appointed elector, like an unconstitutionally enacted statute, is no elector at all.
Schiff omitted the portions in bold, above, which referred to a legal basis for rejecting electors.
Now, we have a simple question:
If the January 6th Committee can’t be trusted to accurately present a text message, how can we trust them with anything else?
This suggests that they are being dishonest.
Because this is yet another witch hunt against President Trump!
Breaking: Following @FDRLST reporting that Adam Schiff and his staff doctored a text message between Jim Jordan and former WH chief of staff Mark Meadows, the House Jan. 6 committee has just admitted that it did, in fact, doctor the text message.https://t.co/78aRNyOib7

We shouldn’t be surprised given his actions over the past 5 years and given how my emails magically had their dates changed, but he will continue to do this till someone steps up & says enough!

What’s worse is that this was done on live TV.
We doubt that anyone watching the hearing live on CNN or MSNBC will actually hear the truth.
The damage has been done.
The Washington Examiner confirms:
“The Select Committee on Monday created and provided Representative Schiff a graphic to use during the business meeting quoting from a text message from ‘a lawmaker’ to Mr. Meadows. The graphic read, ‘On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should call out all electoral votes that he believes are unconstitutional as no electoral votes at all.’ In the graphic, the period at the end of that sentence was added inadvertently. The Select Committee is responsible for and regrets the error,” a spokesman for the select committee said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.
The committee cut off half a sentence and paragraphs of further information, then added a period and changed the format so it appeared to be the whole message, the Federalist first reported . The full message was a short summary of a legal briefing Jordan forwarded from lawyer Joseph Schmitz to Meadows on Jan. 5, meaning that a “lawmaker” did not write the message at all, the report added.
The committee’s spokesman provided the entire paragraph “in the interests of transparency.”
So what do you think?
Was this an honest omission?
Or were the text messages doctored?
