The Federalist’s Margot Cleveland found that the January 6 Committee “fraudulently accused an innocent DOJ attorney as involved in a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election,” and did so with malice. They looked over evidence and debunked the Committee’s false accusations toward the former DOJ lawyer Ken Klukowski at last week’s public hearing.
This week, senior legal analyst for Breitbart News, Ken Klukowski, demanded the January 6 Committee to make public, the complete transcript of his sworn testimony, which debunks the Committee’s false depiction of him as a “go-between in a conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election.”
The allegations from the Committee, according to Klukowski, are “both false in broad strokes and precise details.”
“I have provided hundreds of documents, I have sat through many hours of recorded depositions, and cooperated completely with the Committee since it first contacted me,” he adds. “Such data has completely debunked the Committee’s claims about my actions, yet the Committee has decided to keep that information to itself rather than make it public.”
The Committee’s allegations that he was “sent to the Department of Justice to act as a connection between Jeff Clark and John Eastman about election matters, or to otherwise try to overturn the results of the 2020 election, are completely false.” According to Klukowski, his statement “debunks” this claim.
He also refutes the Committee’s claim that he agreed with John Eastman’s disputed thesis that Vice President Mike Pence had the power to unilaterally dismiss electors on January 6, as well as the false impression that he was a key part in the drafting of a letter outlined and dictated by his boss Jeff Clark.
Margot Cleveland of the Federalist interviewed Klukowski about his statement, which she was able to verify after reviewing the public record and speaking with Andrew Kloster, the White House official in charge of coordinating Klukowski’s move to the DOJ’s Civil Division, which as Klukowski informed the Committee “was in the works long before Jeff Clark was named acting head of that Division.”
“Kloster not only validated Klukowski’s story, as did the various papers available to the Jan. 6 Committee with respect to the transfer’s timetable and aim, but the public record also confirms that Kluukemia sought legal experience in the civil division. Specifically, over a 36-day period in which Klukowski worked in the civil division (a detail Cheney highlighted as suspicious), Klukowski argued and won two federal appeals that were (completely unrelated to the election issues) before the Ninth Circuit, including a complicated and important case addressing abstention.”
