Secret Service Leaves the January 6th Committee and the Press Fuming With Announcement on Supposed ‘Evidence’ – Opinion

To make January 6th the top issue, the Left has found a new foe: The US Secret Service.

There are reports out there that Secret Service officials deleted text messages from before the disturbances at Capitol Building. That was confirmed on Tuesday, after officials announced that there are no new texts to provide to the January 6th committee that are relevant to its “investigation.” Any others of concern have already been purged, though, the agency insists there was no purposeful malicious action in doing so.

The Washington Post has the story. They are now raising alarm over possible illegality of the Secret Service.

According to an official who was briefed, the U.S. Secret Service determined that it does not have any new text to give Congress in connection with its Jan. 6, investigation. Any other texts the agents had exchanged at the time of 2021’s attack on Capitol were also purged.

Also, the National Archives on Tuesday sought more information on “the potential unauthorized deletion” of agency text messages. The U.S. government’s chief record-keeper asked the Secret Service to report back to the Archives within 30 days about the deletion of any records, including describing what was purged and the circumstances of how the documentation was lost.

The law enforcement agency, whose agents have been embroiled in the Jan. 6 investigation because of their role shadowing and planning President Donald Trump’s movements that day, is expected to share this conclusion with the Jan. 6 committee in response to its Friday subpoena for texts and other records.

This was determined by the agency after reviewing their communication databases over four days. Nearly all records have been shared before with an agency watchdog, congressional committees and the senior official stated. The records will not shed any new light on some of the most important matters being probed by the committee. These include whether Trump attacked Secret Service agents, which was a story that a White House senior adviser described to the Jan. 6-committee.

What number of times does a committee have to chase its tail? Every single time Liz Cheney and crew hit a dead end, we are assured that if they just had “this” piece of unobtainable “evidence,” the entire Trump “insurrection” conspiracy would be proved true. Committee Chair Bennie Thompson is even quoted as believing these text messages could provide critical details about the Secret Service’s involvement on January 6th.

Can you see the direction this is heading? They have nothing to support their theory that Trump-led coup and are now looking for someone to blame. You see, it wasn’t that their entire investigation was dumb, partisan, and pointless. It’s that it was thwarted by that dastardly Secret Service deleting text messages as part of a phone upgrade. Surely those messages are the smokescreen?

It’s absurd. The committee is unsure what the Secret Service did on January 6. Is it possible that its agents and leadership were involved in an effort to overthrow the government? Besides, the deletion of the text messages is being defended by Joe Biden’s own appointee. Biden officials may now be pro-January 6th, according to some theories.

It is doubtful that any records keeping laws were violated in this case. According to the Secret Service, the receipts proving that the phone issue was months in the making were available. This is despite the fact that it did not occur suddenly on January 6, 2006. So, while the press fret and the committee fumes, there’s very little that is likely to come from this. They’ll just have to look elsewhere for their “evidence” of an organized coup that didn’t happen.
