Rep. Barry Loudermilk has suggested that members of the partisan House January 6 Committee could face criminal referrals for destroying records.

As the ranking member investigating the committee, Loudermilk revealed they had destroyed documents, texts, and other materials despite orders to preserve all investigation records.

Speaking to John Solomon, Loudermilk stated the House may soon draft referrals for Reps. Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and Jamie Raskin, as well as former members who are no longer protected.

“As far as holding people accountable, yes, they should be,” Loudermilk said. “But I think that’s going to be a little ways down the road, because there is so much more information that we need to get. And we need to build not only this, to get the truth out to the American people, but see just how big this case potentially is for obstructing.”

He said other options like censorship or ethics reviews are also on the table if prosecution is not possible.

Loudermilk criticized the committee for telegraphing misinformation to the public in its hearings, including debunked claims about Trump and failing to provide full context and footage of the Capitol incident.

“We also have to look at what other options are. There’s also censorship, ethics, obviously. But also consider there are members of that select committee that are no longer members of Congress. So they may fall under a different scenario. So we do have the tools of members of Congress, but also active members of Congress have certain protections,” Loudermilk said. “So we’ll have to work on that because as you talked about earlier, we’re in uncharted territory right now.”
