House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) told Breitbart News on Saturday that the GOP is prepared to offer counterprogramming to the “illegitimate” January 6 Committee hearing.
The committee announced its first primetime hearing will take place on Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m. Eastern. After the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) arrested former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro for refusing to testify before the committee, the upcoming hearing gained even more attention.
Stefanik stated that the committee exists solely to punish political opponents and to target “patriotic Trump supporters.” She added that it does not even address the actual issue, which is to ensure that the United States Capitol has adequate security. In the meantime, she stated that the United States is experiencing rampant inflation, high gas prices, a border crisis, and a baby formula crisis. Stefanik predicted that it will be both a “circus” and a “political witch hunt.”
“[Democrats] are redoubling their efforts in a desperate attempt to alter the narrative. However, the American populace is intelligent. They see through this, and they want a Congress that focuses on issues that are important to them,” she said.
In addition, the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference stated that the GOP is prepared to counter Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) partisan witch hunt.

“We’re working very closely with President Trump and his team with Leader Kevin McCarthy, with Jim Jordan, and really all of the House Republicans will be pushing back in a rapid response fashion,” Stefanik said, previewing what is to come.
“You will see us all over the airwaves, we will be setting the record straight. We will be telling the truth to the American people sharing the facts and also really pointing out how unprecedented and unconstitutional and illegitimate this committee is,” she continued.
Stefanik added that GOP members already have “lots of media bookings already set,” and she predicted that members are “going to shine in this moment.” Read more here…
