January 6 committee chair expects committee to issue criminal referrals to DOJ


The chairman of the House Jan. 6 committee, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., expects the panel to make criminal referrals to the Justice Department, he told reporters Tuesday.

“We’ve made decisions on criminal dismissals,” Thompson said.

Thompson said the panel has yet to formalize its decision. He also declined to say which people would be removed or how many he expects the panel to do.

Committee members have previously flagged the possibility that the panel will send several criminal referrals to the Justice Department involving former President Donald Trump and his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
