Jan. 6 House Select Committee Postpones Wednesday Hearing Due to ‘Hurricane Ian’

The Jan. 6 House Select Committee announced today that they are postponing Wednesday’s hearing due to “Hurricane Ian.”

In a tweet, the committee announced, “In light of Hurricane Ian bearing down on parts of Florida, we have decided to postpone tomorrow’s proceedings.”

“We’re praying for the safety of all those in the storm’s path. The Select Committee will soon announce a date for the postponed proceedings,” the committee explained.

According to a new report, former committee aide Denver Riggleman has angered members with his decision to publish a book.

In the book, Riggleman bashes former Republican colleagues including U.S. Congressmen Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Paul Gosar (R-AZ).

Committee member U.S. Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) recently threatened to leave the Republican Party if former President Donald Trump is the party’s 2024 presidential nominee.

While sharing a recent speech on the House floor, Cheney said in a tweet, “The 1/6 hearings have shown that Trump knew his effort to overturn the election was illegal & unconstitutional. He did it anyway.”

“Trump’s conduct was illegal under existing law and would be under our new bill, too. Our bill also prevents other future efforts to steal elections,” Cheney claimed.

Cheney recently championed a revision to the Electoral Count Act of 1887 that passed the House with nine Republicans voting in favor, all of whom either lost their primaries or have announced they will retire at the end of this Congress.
