Republican Congressional candidate Genevieve Collins (TX) explained in an interview with “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning that Republican women are running for office and getting louder in politics.
“Women are doing so much right now,” she said. “Women are running businesses, we’re running families, we’re running board rooms and courtrooms, and hospitals. And, yet, we’re not running our politics?”
Collins told the story of her grandmother, who in 1957 was the first women to run for office in Dallas, Texas. “She was the first woman ever elected to Dallas City Council. So, I think it’s time that women are finally owning our voice and really stepping up because we are really capable of doing so much,” Collins said.
In the U.S. House of Representatives, there are currently 88 Democrat women and 13 Republican women. When asked about the disparity in female representation between the two parties, Collins explained, “Well, we haven’t stood up loud and talked loud enough yet. I think it’s important that women, Republican women especially talk about issues that matter to us, like the economy, like education, like national security.”
She added, “It’s time that we really start talking much loudly and really banging the drum for Republican women’s perspectives and voices to be heard loud and proud in Washington, D.C. and across our nation.”

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
