Rep. Grijalva Statement on January 6th Committee Hearings

WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva issued the following statement in advance of the January 6th Committee hearings:

“On Thursday, the January 6th Committee will begin its first hearing to uncover the truth and motives behind the January 6th insurrection. These hearings are for a matter of public record so that we may never forget what happened.”

“History will show that the January 6th attack was a fascist attempt to, by force and lies, overturn a legitimate election through a calculated conspiracy and a violent, failed coup sanctioned by a sitting president. It was aided and abetted by Members of Congress and other elected representatives, all of them members of the Republican Party.”

“As these hearings shed light on the dark actions of that day, the Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland should watch closely. Insurrectionists and perpetrators of this attack on our democracy must be held accountable, prosecuted,  and punished according to law. I urge Arizonans to watch these hearings and keep in mind that our democracy is at stake in the upcoming election.”
