Despite the hyper-partisan efforts of the Jan. 6 committee hearings and their predetermined objective of recommending criminal charges against former President Donald Trump, evidence has continued to mount on the side of reality leading Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume to drop the hammer on Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL).
Following Thursday’s primetime edition of the Jan. 6 show trial, investigative journalist and founder of Just the News, John Solomon, called out the committee for deliberately ignoring concrete evidence that destroys their narrative while referencing a specific Pentagon memo. Hume shared that post and included a scathing indictment of his own on the Republican committee members said to be participating in the name of being fair.
“This is the sort of information, while not excusing Trump, that the 1/6 committee’s Republicans would have insisted be part of the hearings, if they were trying to be fair,” he captioned the article before slamming Cheney and Kinzinger, “They are not.”

As Solomon laid out, “the most compelling piece of evidence that Trump wanted to thwart — rather than incite — violence is contained in a lengthy memo written by the Pentagon inspector general that chronicled the assistance the Defense Department offered Congress both ahead of and during the riot.”
“In it, the IG recounts a fateful meeting on Jan. 3, 2021 in the White House when then-acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller and Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, met with Trump on national security matters,” he explained after referencing the president’s initial offer for National Guard troops on Jan. 2, 2021. “The complete passage — hardly mentioned by Democrats at the hearings of the news media covering them — is worth absorbing in its entirety.”
“‘Mr. Miller and GEN Milley met with the President at the White House at 5:30 p.m.,’ the IG reported. ‘The primary topic they discussed was unrelated to the scheduled rally. GEN Milley told us that at the end of the meeting, the President told Mr. Miller that there would be a large number of protestors on January 6, 2021, and Mr. Miller should ensure sufficient National Guard or Soldiers would be there to make sure it was a safe event. Gen. Milley told us that Mr. Miller responded, “We’ve got a plan and we’ve got it covered.”‘”
“Democrats,” Solomon went on to add, “have not offered any evidence to counter that story.”
The J6 Kangaroo Court is not interested in seeking the truth or being fair.They came up with preordained findings, then yanked evidence out of context to support the conclusions. They ignored anything that cut the other way, and allowed no rebuttal or dissent. A propaganda show.

No upside to being fair.

Furthering the point, Hume went on to retweet a post from the Washington Examiner’s Byron York who wrote, “Assumption is that having two sides in a congressional hearing really messes things up. Bad for the show…” in response to a clip of a conversation between late night host Stephen Colbert and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

This is, unintentionally, quite revealing. https://t.co/orsTdBZAhn

In the exchange, Colbert lauded the one-sided nature of the show trial calling it “informative and interesting” before Hayes explained the “necessary precondition for that is that you have a unanimity of purpose among the members of the committee across party lines.” In other words, they want the kangaroo court.
While Hume hedged on the conclusion that could be drawn from the sham committee’s lack of providing a credible counterargument to the Pentagon memo stating, “not excusing Trump” at least one social media user opined that that is exactly what the report does.
Naw, it actually does excuse him.
