Cherry-picking and spoon-feeding Jan. 6

CHERRY-PICKING AND SPOON-FEEDING JAN. 6. Is showrunner James Goldston the most important force on the House Democratic Jan. 6 committee? There’s no doubt the former president of ABC News is shaping the committee’s presentations, episode by episode. The shows Goldston is crafting are a dramatic departure from actual congressional hearings — hearings in which members of both parties debate evidence, question witnesses, argue with each other, and reveal facts the other side might not want revealed.

By contrast, at the committee’s much-discussed hearing with former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, just two members — Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and Vice Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) — spoke at all. The other seven members of the committee sat there silently the entire time. They had no lines in Goldston’s script for what Slate called “the breakout show of the summer.”

So far, each script has featured a few selected sound bites from witnesses’ videotaped interviews. Not the whole interview. Not the transcript of the whole interview. Just a few snippets, the ones chosen by the showrunner to illustrate the episode’s big theme. If the Jan. 6 committee investigation was a traditional congressional investigation, opposition party members would protest. Having seen the interviews themselves, knowing the content, they would raise questions from the transcripts that the majority might not want to highlight.

Call it the cherry-picking committee. What is odd is that there is not loud, widespread protest from the reporters who cover the hearing. Journalists generally do not like being fed short, preselected bits of information by newsmakers who keep most of what they know a secret. It just goes against the journalistic instinct. And yet with the Jan. 6 committee, there has been extensive coverage and not much complaining about what the committee is concealing.

Just look at the Hutchinson matter. The former top aide to White House chief of staff Mark Meadows sat for not one, not two, but three interviews with the committee before, in a fourth session, offering the story that then-President Donald Trump physically attacked his own Secret Service detail in an armored SUV on Jan. 6 in an effort to force the Secret Service to drive him to the Capitol. What did Hutchinson say in those first three committee interviews, all videotaped and transcribed? Why did she wait until the fourth interview before relating the SUV allegation?

Normally congressional committees do not like it when witnesses withhold information, especially in multiple appearances. The committee offered no information about the circumstances of Hutchinson’s testimony. It appeared to use a few clips from her earlier interviews, but even that is not clear. In any event, it provided no transcripts, no full videos, no nothing beyond the bits chosen by the producers.

Likewise with the committee’s interviews of the two White House staffers involved in Hutchinson’s story, then-deputy chief of staff Tony Ornato and Secret Service agent Robert Engel. We learned through reporting that the committee had interviewed them, too, but the committee never mentioned that simple fact during the Hutchinson testimony. Why not? Well, it might be because at the time the committee did its interview or interviews with Ornato and Engel, Hutchinson had not yet offered the SUV story, so the committee did not know to ask them about it.

Then one might ask: Why not bring Ornato and Engel back in and ask them about Hutchinson’s new story? Apparently, the committee was in too big of a hurry to do that. It worried the blockbuster story would leak and drain the drama from the next episode. So it called a surprise hearing and rushed the SUV story into the public conversation without checking with other witnesses. Also, there was one more person involved, the driver of the SUV, and it is still not clear whether the committee has spoken to him. If it has, it hasn’t said a word about it. If it has not, that’s one more source with whom it did not check before going public with Hutchinson.

The committee has also been extremely secretive about other aspects of the matter. For example, there was speculation about whether Ornato had been interviewed under oath. The committee would not say. On Meet the Press, NBC’s Chuck Todd had to drag it out of committee member Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) that yes, Ornato had spoken under oath. “I believe he was under oath,” Lofgren conceded after several questions from Todd.

Even as Lofgren conceded that there was testimony under oath, other members sought to slander Ornato, to damage his reputation, in case he contradicts committee star Hutchinson in a new interview. Citing some former Trump staffers who claimed that Ornato had not been truthful to them, committee member Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) tweeted, “There seems to be a major thread here…Tony Ornato likes to lie.” How’s that for impeaching a witness before he answers a single question?

So the committee is cherry-picking information and spoon-feeding it to the public and the press. Meanwhile, the full extent of the information it has gathered is a secret. Even when a witness is introduced and testifies in public, the committee’s practice is to guide the witness over a few topics by playing snippets of the witness’s earlier videotaped testimony. The witness then comments on his or her own testimony. The subject matter is carefully controlled. And even after the witness appears, the committee does not release video or transcripts of the witness’s full testimony. It’s all a secret.

During the first Trump impeachment, in late 2019, House Democrats threw the rules and practices out the window. They conducted secret depositions and threatened Republicans with discipline if they leaked as much as a word about it. Of course, some Republicans were allowed to take part in the depositions. After much criticism, when public hearings arrived, impeachment chief Adam Schiff (D-CA), who is also a member of today’s Jan. 6 committee, relented and allowed the release of most transcripts of witness interviews.

Now, of course, the Jan. 6 committee has two Republicans on it, Cheney and Kinzinger. But they appear to be in lockstep with committee Democrats. No member of the committee, of either party, has had the courage or independence of mind to question publicly how the committee is conducting its business. And perhaps just as importantly, few members of the press have spoken up to question the committee’s procedures. That seems unlikely to change.
