The January 6th Committee has faced criticism about a lack of transparency, its highly partisan composition, and its failure to investigate certain elements of the unrest that happened at the January 6th ‘Stop the Steal’ rally.
The committee, made up of Democrats and two Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump, had its deadline bumped up to release its final report as Republicans are set to take over the House in January and will likely disband the committee.
As the committee prepares to release its report, which could result in them recommending Trump for criminal prosecution by the Department of Justice, outgoing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Ca.) has said that some evidence in the report will have to be scrubbed.
Schiff claimed that it is necessary to conceal the identities of certain confidential sources to protect their privacy.

Outgoing House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said the Jan. 6 committee will have to “scrub” some evidence from its final report before Republicans take over the house in 2023.
During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Nov. 27, Schiff was asked by anchor Dana Bash about Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) becoming chairman of the powerful House Judiciary Committee and about the fact that Jordan will “go through the evidence you left out … you’re saying that there won’t be evidence that will not be made public?”
“The evidence will all be made public,” Schiff told Bash in response. “Now, we will have to make sure that we scrub that evidence for personally identifiable information, that the evidence that we provide protects people’s security, it doesn’t put them at risk. So there are things that we’re going to have to do along those lines.”
