Democrats seek to establish a ‘9/11-style commission’ to investigate the Jan. 6 riot

Even though the Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is over, Democrats are showing no signs of moving on from the narrative that Trump incited an insurrection.

Now, it appears that congressional Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), are going to try to establish a “9/11 type commission” to investigate the riot that occurred at the Capitol on January 6th. 

“To protect our security”

Pelosi announced on Monday that Congress will look to establish such a commission.

“Now, as always, security is the order of the day: the security of our country, the security of our Capitol which is the temple of our democracy, and the security of our Members,” Pelosi wrote in a letter that she wrote to House Democrats.

The House Speaker continued by arguing that the findings of Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, who, following the riot, wrote a report on Capitol security, demonstrate that a “9/11-type commission” is needed to investigate what happened.

Pelosi wrote:

It is clear from his findings and from the impeachment trial that we must get to the truth of how this happened. To protect our security, our security, our security, our next step will be to establish an outside, independent 9/11-type Commission to ‘investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021 domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex … and relating to the interference with the peaceful transfer of power, including facts and causes relating to the preparedness and response of the United States Capitol Police and other Federal, State, and local law enforcement in the National Capitol Region.

Stopping “would-be Trump tyrants”

It appears that Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) will be one of those members of congress who will be leading the way in establishing this commission.

“We need to reverse the rising tide of extremist violence in this country,” Blumenthal said during an appearance Monday on MSNBC. “The mob that Donald Trump mobilized was armed. The Capitol Police and Metropolitan Police recovered firearms on that day. That mob is still out there and still dangerous, and part of the reason that I believe we need a 9/11 commission, that type of commission.”

Accordingly, Blumenthal said that “I am drafting a bill, that I hope will be bipartisan, to uncover the causes and impose accountability, and provide more protection against that kind of a mob, that violent extremism.”

Blumenthal continued:

There’s a need for more truth-telling. There’s a need for more facts. That’s why a 9/11 type commission will be important to uncover the larger causes, the individuals who should be held had accountable, and as you have said, an unsuccessful coup attempt without accountably is a dress rehearsal. The would-be Trump tyrants waiting to mobilize that mob again must be stopped.

The 9/11 Commission . . .

. . . was established in 2002 “to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11 [2001] terrorist attacks.”

It is unlikely that anybody would be against establishing such a commission to investigate the January 6th riot, so long as it really does seek to get to the bottom of what happened, which we still don’t really know. The concern, though, is that this is just another attempt by the Democrats to use the government to go after their political opponents.

  1. Nancy’s taking a big chance since capital security is her responsibility we will all find out that her January 5th plan came out exactly the way the vindictive Pelosi planned with the media’s help it was all Blamed on her enemy:
    (America and ex President Trump)

    1. Traitor Pelosi should be careful because she won’t like what she gets from a 9/11 type of investigation IF it is completed by true professionals on a non partisan basis. If so Traitor Pelosi may well find herself behind bars or at least impeached. What is actually needed is a REAL and HONEST investigation in the despicable riots that continue to go on with the apparent support of Traitors Pelosi and Harris as well as other members of their party.

    2. Thats just it, the ” Commission will stop short of investigating what happened to the security of the Capital that day, they will not investigate why the Security detail was relaxed thar day, why , after being advised and it offered by then President Trump, the National Guard was refused. They will only investigate what and who of the Republican party was involved( and of course if they don’t find anyone they will invent it, as with the Russian Collusion Hoax ) , they will not look into all the violence and riots over the summer, and who was urging them on, who was funding them etc. !

    3. Hey Biil, how right you are in pointing out Crazy Nancy’s failure. My only question for the Crazy Woman is: are you going to testify and tell the truth. If you do you will be impeached. Please proceed. Your days of lying are coming to an end.

  2. The best thing I would like to read in the paper is that Nancy Pelosi, Blumenthal, Schiff, Waters, AOC, Tlaib, Omar, etc. caught the coronavirus with a terminal result.

    1. The woman is evil, pure evil, just like Schiff, Schumer, Biden (and the Biden crime family), Harris, Obama, Mueller, AOC, Omar, etc. Hopefully, Gitmo will be big enough to hold them all.

  4. Agree with all posts. This is hopefully piglosi’s downfall. IF real investigators do the job, NOT piglosi’s pals. But, you cannot trust the demonrats to be honest about anything. So—- we shall see who will be on this commission. I think the old nanny goat protests too much! SHE is the perpetrator!!!!

  5. Blame all on Pelosi. This was her plans. Now, she wants to throw all her game plan on some else. Pelosi is guilty for the riots that happened in Capital DC. Look at her actions and her inner circle clans. Go Trump

  6. I love whatRM said andI believe all liberals will soon be in the devil’s Hell! They think they run the show..LO!,the ruler of our earth GOD HAS ALWAYS AND WILL ALWAYS BE THE RULER! THANK YOU, DEAR JESUS FOR YOUR INFINITE KNOWLEDGE! I don;’t know how people live in this evil world without His protection!

  7. Poopig is a joke, and everyone knows she was the big player in the Jan.6 riot. This has already been proven. Poopig needs to arrested for causing the riot and fir treason and hung along with other demoRats in front of the White House.

  8. They spent 4 years going after Trump and any allies of his that they still haven’t figured out they are the cause of the riot due to the blue collared folks are fed up with both parties using us to pay for their pet projects and welfare junkies.

  9. If it is truly a independent commission I have no problems with it, but if Nancy Pelosi has anything to do with it, I have many doubts as to its independence. The democrats never wanted Trump in office, I received an email before the 2016 election was even over wanting to know if Trump should be impeached, but never gave any reasons. I deleted the email because I thought it was trash.

  10. so you want to have an investigation was going to do it the Foxwood ahead we all know lately that no politician tells the full trope it would be nice to have somebody investigate that has not been in the game that will tell the whole truth no matter who it hurts because this blame on both sides a less in the and blind this past year there was enough to see

  11. If fancy nancy suggeeds in setting up this commission, they should ALSO thoroughly investigate ALL the riots that took place, all over the country, during the past year! They would easily find enough evidence to put fancy nancy and all her commie buddies away for life.

  12. Nancy is costing us more money than is needed , as she says about laws she favors , “ it was voted on and their is no need to question it , it’s the law “ now watch how she avoids that . Roe vs Wade is her favorite , but if it looks like her favorite law is going to face challenges she does the non constitutional Supreme Court that the republicans control and how R vs W is a constitutional law . Chowder head needs a rest , the rest of her life comes to mind .

  13. We the people are tired of her and her crazy Democrats.They waste my TAX money.Wake up America and start tell them ,you pay their salaries.

  14. I’ve read your comments, and you should double check your spelling or wording. It sounds like a 2nd grader is writing this.
    Yes, Pelosi and her group need to go soon.
