The House select Jan. 6 committee has spent countless resources and time attempting to hamstring former President Donald Trump while grossly ignoring the failure of Democratic leadership on the day of the Capitol incursion.
According to Breitbart, in its final report, the House J6 committee didn’t make a single mention of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) utter failure to take proper measures to secure the Capitol complex on that day.
Unsurprisingly, the committee used the entirety of the report to blame Trump, just days after it recommended criminal charges be brought against the 45th president by President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice.
In the wake of the J6 committees’ report, House Republicans released their own report to add relevant and important context to what happened and didn’t happen, on January 6, 2021.
RINO Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming wrote in the report, “Trump sat in the dining room off the Oval Office watching the violent riot at the Capitol.”
She added: “During this time, law enforcement agents were attacked and seriously injured, the Capitol was invaded, the electoral count was halted and the lives of those in the Capitol were put at risk.”
“In addition to being unlawful, as described in this report, this was an utter moral failure—and a clear dereliction of duty.”
UPDATE: House Republicans call on Nancy Pelosi to testify over January 6 security failure.
Is Pelosi at least partially to blame for Jan 6?

Republicans, however, strongly claim that the proper officials at the Capitol, including Pelosi, were made well aware of possible security threats on Jan. 6 as far back as December 2020.
“Prior to that day, the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) had obtained sufficient information from an array of channels to anticipate and prepare for the violence that occurred,” the Republicans wrote in their response.
Breitbart noted of the GOP response: “The Republican report was crafted by Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Rodney Davis (R-IL), Troy Nehls (R-TX), and Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) — all members whom Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) had appointed to the January 6 Committee, but some of whom Pelosi denied participation, such as Jordan and Banks. McCarthy later removed all the appointees in protest of Pelosi’s decision to block Jordan and Banks.”
“Unlike the sham January 6th Committee, House Republicans produced a useful report that will keep Capitol and USCP officers safe with no subpoena power and no budget,” Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks said of the Republicans’ response.
Republicans have also vowed to investigate Pelosi and the failures in security at the Capitol when they assume power in January.
Given that the J6 Committee lacked the power to take any actions against Trump or even formally recommended criminal action, it looks like the Kabuki theater act is finally over.
