Democrats are expected to spend $8 million dollars in 2022 investigating the Capitol attack on January 6, as American struggle with inflation not seen in 40 years.
On Friday, the Consumer Price Index reached 8.6% — the highest since 1981 — as the prices of everyday necessities such as gas, food, and rent continue to climb. Gas is approaching a national average of $5 dollars a gallon, which would be a record.
The soaring level of inflation comes as Democrats are spending millions of American taxpayer funds relooking at Donald Trump’s alleged role in the January 6, 2021, attack that occurred about a year and a half ago.
Breitbart News reported exclusively on Thursday that the House Democrats’ January 6 Select Committee is projected to spend $8 million in 2022.
An aide familiar with the figures told Breitbart News’ Sean Moran that the committee spent $2,073,179.55 between January and April of 2022, and is projected to spend $8 million during the 2022 legislative year (LY).
The breakdown for the roughly $2 million spent between January and April is as follows:
- $1,996,433.14 on salaries (the committee employs 51 staffers at an average yearly salary of $124,416)
- $144.93 on travel
- $12,394.78 on communications
- $52 on printing
- $18,919.53 on “other services”
- $18,578.51 on supplies
- $26,656.66 on equipment
