House Committee Investigating Fani Willis for Coordination with J6 Panel
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), the chairman of the House Administration's Subcommittee on Oversight, believe they are on to something.
They have penned a letter to Fulton County DA Fani Willis seeking clarification on a matter.
They say they have documentation proving that she was coordinating her prosecution of Trump with the January 6 Select Committee.
According to the letter, Willis was asking the J6 committee to share information with her regarding the case against Trump.
The letter said the new information they have “raises additional questions relevant to the Committee's oversight of Willis's politically motivated prosecution of a former President of the United States and several former senior federal officials."
Rep. Loudermilk added, "The coordination between Fulton County, GA District Attorney Fani Willis, and Pelosi's January 6 Select Committee, should be concerning to everyone.
“This new information raises questions about Willis' and Thompson's commitment to due process, and whether House Rules were violated when the Select Committee failed to properly disclose this material."
In addition to Willis, the letter was sent to the former co-chair of the J6 committee, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS).
He responded, "As I have said time and again, the [Jan. 6 Committee] archived its official records in accordance with House rules.
"Only the Committee on House Administration is in possession of these records, and Mr. Loudermilk is fully aware of this."
I am honestly not sure what to think of this as Congress has shared information with prosecutors before during an investigation.
When I reported on this issue prior, I noted the real concern was if there was coordination in regard to stacking up these cases to ensure they would keep Trump busy during the primary and general election season.
I am just not sure that legally, there is anything Jordan and Loudermilk can do to Willis on this front other than making a lot of noise.
I would really like more clarity from them as to why this is a legal issue.
