Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson asserted on Tuesday that the complete narrative behind the events of January 6th has not been fully revealed. Speaking on “The Chris Salcedo Show,” Senator Johnson criticized the hearings held under Democratic control, stating that the Jan. 6th Committee’s investigation was a “farce” and raising concerns about missing evidence as the Republican-led House delves into the matter.
As evidence continues to emerge from the House, including the release of January 6th footage, presidential candidates are also weighing in on the events of that day. During a CNN Town Hall on December 13, presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy attempted to address the issue but was interrupted when he mentioned the presence of federal law enforcement agents at the Capitol on January 6th.
Nikki Haley, another potential presidential candidate, characterized January 6th as a “terrible day” and criticized former President Donald Trump for not doing enough to prevent it. In a June town hall on CNN, Haley emphasized her disagreement with Trump, stating, “He thinks it was a beautiful day; I think it was a terrible day. I’ll always stand by that.”
Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, who was present on January 6th, told Tucker Carlson that the intelligence he received indicated a similarity to previous MAGA rallies. However, Sund highlighted that the FBI, DHS, and the military seemed to possess concerning intelligence.
Senator Johnson concluded in his interview that “the Deep State does not give up its secrets easily,” hinting at a more complex narrative yet to be unraveled.
