If the January 6th committee would like to be taken seriously, they are going to need to start acting with a little more jurisprudence.
From the onset, the committee has been accused of existing only for the purpose of demonizing Donald Trump ahead of the 2024 presidential election and, to a lesser extent, attempting to scare Americans away from the GOP prior to the 2022 midterms.
