Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Loudermilk Releases First Flash Report on Review of the January 6th Committee
March 29, 2023
WASHINGTON - Today, Committee on House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) released a flash report outlining findings from initial review of the January 6th Committee's records.
"As the subcommittee continues to go through over 2 million documents provided by the January 6th Select Committee, our initial review has found that their work was solely focused on pushing a pre-determined narrative and they selectively chose ‘facts’ to fit that narrative," said Chairman Loudermilk. "I was the target of one of those narratives, when they accused me of giving a ‘reconnaissance tour.' We’ve uncovered documents that prove the committee knew that the allegation that I gave a ‘reconnaissance tour’ was verifiably false, yet continued to make public accusations and ultimately printed that lie in their final report. It’s clear their work isn’t credible, and they owe every individual whose reputation they attempted to smear an apology.”

Per House Rules for the 118th Congress, the Committee on House Administration became custodians of the January 6th Committee’s records that were deemed official by former Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS). The Subcommittee on Oversight is cataloging and reviewing those documents while simultaneously investigating the security failures on January 6, 2021 to make potential reforms.
