Jacobs should demand subpoenas for Bannon in Jan. 6 investigation

Congressman Chris Jacobs is still trying to destroy the rule of law and the basic fabrics of our democracy. This past January Congressman Chris Jacobs voted to disenfranchise millions of voters in Pennsylvania and Arizona even after those states certified their elections as fair and free.

The Buffalo News stated that Mr. Jacobs had joined the “sedition caucus” and that Mr. Jacobs is “cowardly, dishonest and unpatriotic” (1/7/21). This past Thursday Mr. Jacobs voted to allow Stephen K. Bannon to ignore Congressional subpoenas.

The Congressional committee is investigating the Jan 6th insurrection where 140 police officers were injured and there were 5 deaths. We need to know if it was organized and planned; that is the purpose of the congressional investigation that Mr. Jacobs is trying to thwart.

In voting to allow Mr. Bannon to ignore Congressional subpoenas, Mr. Jacobs weakened the system of checks and balances and the rule of law so vital to our democracy. Mr. Jacobs is still working with the “sedition caucus” to destroy our democracy. Mr. Jacobs is still “unpatriotic” as the Buffalo News stated in January.
