Capitol insurrection: Rep. Adam Schiff says House Committee is aware of Rolling Stone report
The recent Rolling Stone report revealed more information on what happened in the days leading up to January 6 and on the day itself. Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who serves on the House Committee investigating the Capitol insurrection, revealed that the panel is aware of the report but did not disclose any further details.
Schiff appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and was asked to comment on the Rolling Stone report regarding the insurrection. The report revealed which members of Congress had some involvement in the planning and organizing of the January 6 Stop the Steal rally that preceded the Capitol insurrection. When pressed if the committee was aware of the reports and the names mentioned in the report, Schiff said that they were.
“A core part of our investigation is to find out what role anyone played in the planning or conduct of that attack on January 6th, and that includes members of Congress,” said Schiff.
Schiff also said that there would be consequences for members of Congress who were involved in the planning of the Capitol insurrection. The consequences include a potential expulsion or censure. However, the Democratic congressman noted that it would ultimately be up to the Justice Department if there would be any criminal charges filed against those members of Congress involved.
During the Capitol insurrection, the pro-Trump mob was targeting top Democrats, including Trump’s own vice president Mike Pence. Pence ultimately refused to overturn the 2020 election results, as the vice president does not have the authority to do so. According to journalists Robert Costa and Bob Woodward in their book “Peril,” they revealed in an interview with NPR that when Trump revealed in his January 5 statement that he would carry out a plot to overturn the election, Pence was reportedly stunned.
According to Costa, this plot also marked the disagreement between Trump and Pence. Costa said that the plot drove Pence and his team into “bunker mode” to the extent that the then-vice president ultimately released a letter on January 6 saying that he would not try to do anything to overturn the election.
“They don’t even share it with the White House counsel or with Trump. That was the level of tension between the president and the vice president,” said Costa.
