Jan. 6 committee subpoena of Trump is an abuse of power and danger to Constitution

Oct. 14, 2022, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government president Richard Manning today issued the following statement responding on the January 6 Commission’s announcement that they will subpoena former President Donald Trump:

“The January 6 Commission has proven to be a prime-time flop which has failed to uncover or even inquire about any internal failures by Speaker Pelosi in preparing for and responding to the needs to protect the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021.  Instead, it has been a partisan witch-hunt with two Viche-esque, bitter, soon to be former GOP members of Congress providing political cover.  The subpoena of former President Trump in the Committee’s waning days is a last gasp attempt to create an illusion of obstruction, as the Committee itself goes extinct at the end of the year.  The same gang which impeached President Trump twice, once over proven false charges of Russian collusion manufactured by Hillary Clinton, and the second over a conversation between President Trump and President Zelensky of Ukraine that was illegally altered and leaked is now throwing one last, desperate punch in the air in the hopes that their partners in the politically weaponized Department of Justice will do something with it.

“The same Justice Department is under heavy scrutiny by Special Counsel John Durham in the prosecution of the key source for the discredited collection of fairy tales and wishful musings known as the Steele Dossier. In the trial against Igor Danchenko, the FBI is laid bare as either the most gullible or the most corrupt law enforcement agency in American history.

“For the sake of America, I hope and pray that the never-ending Trump investigations will end with the none-too-soon death of the J-6 Commission. The left used to bemoan ‘the politics of personal destruction’ and would have abhorred an FBI so obsessed with taking down a duly elected President of the United States as un-American.  After all, the idea of an enemies list during President Richard Nixon’s administration led to its very existence without any claim that it had been acted upon, was part of the articles of impeachment filed in the House of Representatives against him.

“It is time for this nonsense to come to an end. Running for office should not mean putting your personal freedom and livelihood on the line. Yet, in this era of federal law enforcement run attacks on Donald Trump and all those around him, it has become just that, it is this abuse of power which is the true threat to our constitutional republic.”
