The 1/6 “Commission” is setting the most egregious precedents in the nation’s history investigating private citizens and their private information. Read in the story linked below what the Commission and its Obama-era cohorts have done to private citizen Taylor Budowich — a former spokesman for the Trump campaign who never worked for the U.S. Government. It’s worse than anything you’ve already heard about what they’re doing. Here’s just the lead-in …
The Committee plotted with JPMorgan and its lawyer, former Obama AG Loretta Lynch, to obtain a citizen's financial records with no possibility of judicial review.
What Congress is barred from doing, as two McCarthy-era Supreme Court cases ruled, is exactly what the 1/6 committee is now doing: conducting a separate, parallel criminal investigation in order to uncover political crimes committed by private citizens.
Such powers are dangerous precisely because Congress’s investigative powers are not subject to the same safeguards as the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. And just as was true of the 1950s House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) that prompted those Supreme Court rulings, the 1/6 committee is not confining its invasive investigative activities to executive branch officials or even citizens who engaged in violence or other illegality on January 6, but instead is investigating anyone and everyone who exercised their Constitutional rights to express views about and organize protests over their belief that the 2020 presidential election contained fraud.
Indeed, the committee's initial targets appear to be taken from the list of those who applied for protest permits in Washington: a perfectly legal, indeed constitutionally protected, act.

They are setting an unconstitutional precedent that is criminal. Congress is not a criminal investigative branch of government. Greenwald is correct.
Note how Obama/Holder associates pop-up all over, now Loretta Lynch has the temerity to appear on the scene. I was thinking that she at least had a conscience and was laying low.
