No conflict in inquiry from investigators investigating him, Perry says

Perry responded indirectly, “Should everyone in Congress who disagrees with someone be barred from exercising the oversight and investigative powers that Congress has? It’s our responsibility and again, it’s appropriate for every member, regardless of the charges.

He added, “I’m accused of all kinds of things every day, just like every member who serves in the public eye.”

Perry, the House Freedom Caucus leader, was investigated over the Jan. 6 Capitol riots and other efforts to keep former President Donald Trump in power after losing the 2020 election; the House Select Committee on January 6 referred Perry for review by the House Ethics Committee. His phone was seized by the Department of Justice.

Perry was one of the House Republicans who opposed Kevin McCarthy’s bid to become president before changing his vote.

House Republicans should use their new majority to not only investigate President Joe Biden, but those who investigated Trump for various possible wrongdoings, as well as those involved in the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riots.
