Justice Department Seeks January 6 Transcripts

“The Justice Department on Thursday revealed a deepening rift with the Jan. 6 House select committee, accusing the panel of a ‘failure’ to share its 1,000 witness transcripts,” Politico reports.

“DOJ officials say those documents would aid the prosecution of people who breached the Capitol, including leaders of the Proud Boys.”

Insider: “The Justice Department previously requested transcripts in April, but Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of the House January 6 committee, responded that it would be premature for the panel to share its work while its inquiry remains ongoing.”
