Oct 7, 2021

Bolton, MS—Chairman Bennie G. Thompson today issued the following statement on the Majority Staff Interim Report released by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary:

 “I thank Chairman Durbin and his colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee for shedding more light on the former President’s pressure campaign inside the Department of Justice. This report has provided alarming details about the lengths to which the former President and his associates went trying to overturn the 2020 election. I take to heart the recommendations to the Select Committee, and this report will be an important resource as we work to develop the context in which the events of January 6th occurred. The Select Committee will continue our work to get answers for the American people about what happened on January 6th and to make sure nothing like that day ever happens again.”
