Pelosi Drops Hammer on Republicans

(Hat tip: Scissorhead Skinny-D)

UPDATE 1: Axios

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told the House Steering and Policy Committee Tuesday night that she will appoint a select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection, multiple outlets reports.

Why it matters: The creation of such a committee means House Democrats, who currently have a majority, would be responsible for the investigation….

The state of play: The Senate in May failed to reach the 60 votes necessary to advance a bill creating a bipartisan commission to investigate the insurrection, voting 54-35 as Republicans invoked the first legislative filibuster of the Biden presidency. They claimed it would be weaponized against them in the 2022 elections.

  • The House previously passed the legislation with 35 Republicans voting in favor.
  • Earlier in June, President Biden said he would not appoint his own commission to investigate the Capitol Riot, preferring Congress to take the lead.

    The saner part of the Republic saw and understood what happened during the attempted insurrection. Maybe a few fence sitters will come along with us for the ride, but the proceedings will be contentious, and I expect violence from the Quers and assorted travellers. With the election counting processes being tampered with by numerous state houses and a renewed gerrymandering effort, America may be in the past tense, but we will have to “fight like Hell” as suggested by TFG. In this case to keep the Chumpanzees at bay, and make America a better place for all, regardless of race, color, creed, or sexual identity…

    You would think that a concientious principled republican would want to find out how the FBI, BLM, Antifa and the rest of those DFH’s managed to infiltrate a peace-loving gawd fearing patriotic group of MAGAt’s as has been witnessed by their profits.

    The Rs had the offer of a bipartisan commission but turned it down due to “bipartisan” meaning they wouldn’t be put overwhelmingly in control. Watch ’em whine, now. Watch and snigger.
    They will, though, weaponize the fact that this had to be done by a Democrat since they refused to take part unless they got total control over the rules.
    Projection. Confession.
