A document uncovered by The Federalist reveals that former RINO Rep. Liz Cheney and other members of the corrupt J6 Committee, established by then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, concealed evidence that would have exonerated President Trump’s assertion that he called for 10,000 National Guard troops to be deployed around the U.S. Capitol Building.

According to the outlet’s report, “Cheney’s January 6 Committee suppressed evidence that President Donald Trump pushed for 10,000 National Guard troops to protect the nation’s capital,” adding that “Cheney and her committee falsely claimed they had ‘no evidence’ to support Trump officials’ claims the White House had communicated its desire for 10,000 National Guard troops.”

The Federalist also pointed out that an initial transcript of an interview conducted by the committee contained exactly such evidence from a crucial source. Despite Cheney’s active participation in this interview, it was kept from public release until this week.

Deputy Chief of Staff Anthony Ornato’s first transcribed interview with the committee was conducted on January 28, 2022. In it, he told Cheney and her investigators that he overheard White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows push Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser to request as many National Guard troops as she needed to protect the city.

He also testified President Trump had suggested 10,000 would be needed to keep the peace at the public rallies and protests scheduled for January 6, 2021. Ornato also described White House frustration with Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller’s slow deployment of assistance on the afternoon of January 6, 2021.

Not only did the committee inaccurately present the interview, but they also kept the transcript from public view. Moreover, allies of the committee began spreading false narratives and even conspiracy theories about Ornato before conducting further interviews with him. Ornato, a longtime Secret Service agent, had been assigned to a security role at the White House, as per the outlet’s report.

Previously, Liz Cheney, a former GOP representative from Wyoming, consistently directed skeptics of the committee’s investigation to visit the Government Publishing Office website, where she claimed that transcripts, documents, exhibits & our meticulously sourced 800+ page final report. are posted. She asserts that the website contains “supporting documents” for the claims she and other staunch critics of President Trump have made.

However, according to The Federalist, transcripts of fewer than half of the 1,000 interviews the committee claims it conducted are posted on that site. It is unclear how many of the hidden transcripts include exonerating information suppressed by the committee.”

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) criticized the Jan. 6 Select Committee for withholding critical witness testimony, such as that of Mr. Ornato, which contradicted their approved narrative.

Ornato’s testimony supports the claim that President Trump offered 10,000 National Guard troops to secure the Capitol, which was declined by Nancy Pelosi and DC mayor Muriel Bowser.

Loudermilk emphasized the importance of uncovering all facts, regardless of the outcome.

According to the unearthed document, Ornato also said that the Trump White House had no idea that a riot would break out at the Capitol but rather had requested the troops over fears that left-wing groups like Antifa would show up to harass and fight with the president’s supporters who came to D.C. to hear him speak on that day.

These groups had planned protests for the same day and had a history of violent assaults on Trump supporters.
