Literally political theater: Pelosi's hand-picked J6 Committee hired TV exec to produce...

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her hand-picked Select Committee on January 6 have given new meaning to the phrase "political theater."

Ahead of the politicized panel's "prime-time" hearings on Thursday, the committee actually hired a TV executive, former ABC News President James Goldston, to "produce" them for the home audience, according to Fox News' White House correspondent Chad Pergram.

"Fox has confirmed that the committee investigating last year's riot at the Capitol has hired former ABC News President James Goldston to 'produce' the slate of hearings scheduled for this month. Fox is told Goldston will have a hand in all of the hearings this month," Pergram wrote on Twitter.

"But Goldston will be particularly involved in the efforts by the committee to make its prime-time hearing Thursday and another one later this month 'TV friendly.' Fox is also told that the actual witness list for the hearing will come in the next day or two," he added.

"However, the committee will intersperse various portions of taped depositions, new audio/videotape and never-before-seen footage from inside the Capitol on the day of the riot," Pergram concluded.

Earlier in the week, Rep. Adam Schiff, one of the most dishonest Democrats in Congress, said his party would present a "comprehensive narrative" at the prime-time hearings.

"Our goal is to present the narrative of what happened in this country, how close we came to losing our democracy, what led to the violence," he told Margaret Brennan on CBS's "Face the Nation," adding: "Americans I think know a great deal already — they have seen a number of bombshells already [and] there's a great deal they haven't seen. But perhaps the most important is the public has not seen it woven together, how one thing led to another."
