Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) appeared on ABC Sunday to break down the January 6th Commission’s first session. He also implied that there is more to come by way of subpoena.

First, co-anchor Jonathan Karl asked Kinzinger for his response to Rep. Bennie Thompson’s (D-MS) comments saying more subpoenas are coming. Kinzinger backed up his Democrat colleague. Specifically he said he would support subpoenas to even Reps. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Jim Jordan (R-OH).

“I would support subpoenas to anybody that can shed light on that,” Kinzinger said. “If that’s the leader, that’s the leader. If it’s anybody that talked to the president that can provide us that information, I want to know what the president was doing every moment of that day.”

Because there is some dispute to former President Trump’s response to stop the riots, Kinzinger said he’d be willing to investigate all the calls Trump made that day.

“I want to know if the National Guard took five or six hours to get to Capitol Hill, did the president make any calls?” Kinzinger said. “And if he didn’t, why? And if he did, of course, then how come the National Guard still takes five hours? I think, had the president picked up the phone and made a call, the Guard would have been there immediately.”

That day, Trump did in fact make calls. He misdialed Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) just as rioters were entering the Capitol. He wanted to talk to Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) instead, so Lee handed over his phone.

But Kinzinger claimed members of Congress have nothing to fear. “”f anybody’s scared of this investigation I ask you one question, what are you afraid of?” the Illinois lawmaker said. “I mean, either you’re afraid of being discovered, of having some culpability in it or, you know what? If you — if you think it wasn’t a big deal, then you should allow this to go forward.”

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
