The Jan 6 Committee Depositions Have Been Destroyed, Reveals Congressman


by William Upton, The National Pulse:

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) says the video depositions of witnesses for the Democrat-controlled January 6 Committee – including Cassidy Hutchinson among others – have been destroyed. According to Loudermilk, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) – who chaired the partisan committee – did not believe preserving the video data was necessary.

Loudermilk says when he asked Thompson for the files, the Democrat Congressman confirmed to him they had been destroyed. Expressing frustration with these actions, Loudermilk said, “…according to House rules, you have to preserve any data and any information and documents that are used in an official proceeding.”


The revelation of the deposition tape destructions came after Rep. Loudermilk says he was asked by a constituent for information from one sitting. The Congressman’s staff quickly realized something was amiss when they were unable to locate the tapes. This prompted the Georgia Republican to ask Rep. Thompson for his committee’s original files.

According to Loudermilk, because Rep. Thompson and House Democrats aired portions of the video depositions during the January 6 Committee hearings, House Rules required the Committee to preserve the tapes. Undeterred, Rep. Loudermilk says he still believes the complete video of witness depositions “exists somewhere.”
