Pelosi is about to try to establish a commission to study the January 6th Capitol riot

Reports indicate that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is about to try to push a piece of legislation through the House that would establish a commission to investigate the January 6th Capitol riot. 

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi has scheduled a vote this week on a deal forged with Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.) establishing a 10-member commission with subpoena power to investigate the Capitol insurrection,” Politico reports.

The Republicans’ response

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has released a statement condemning Pelosi’s effort.

“For months, the Speaker of the House refused to negotiate in good faith on basic parameters that would govern a commission to examine the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol,” McCarthy wrote. “During this time, the Speaker even falsely claimed in the press that she had delivered Republicans a counterproposal, when in reality her proposal would not surface until weeks later. To be clear, Republican requests for fair representation and an unbiased premise from which to begin such an investigation were always understood to be the starting point for bipartisan negotiations, not the end result.”

McCarthy went on to accuse Pelosi of wasting time “playing political games,” while noting that there are several more legitimate investigations into what happened on January 6th ongoing. McCarthy suggested that Pelosi’s bill could upend these efforts.

“Given the political misdirections that have marred this process, given the now duplicative and potentially counterproductive nature of this effort, and given the Speaker’s shortsighted scope that does not examine interrelated forms of political violence in America, I cannot support this legislation,” McCarthy concluded.

Pelosi’s response to McCarthy

Pelosi told reporters on Tuesday that she is “very pleased that we have a bipartisan bill to come to the floor,” adding, it’s “disappointing but not surprising that the cowardice on the part of some on the Republican side not to want to find the truth.”

It probably ought to be noted that Pelosi’s “bipartisan” bill is supported by Katko, who is one of those House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.

Pelosi plans to have the House vote on this measure on May 19th.

Pelosi has already received the support of the White House, and she expected to receive the support of House Democrats.

What is unclear, though, is how many House Republicans will support the effort.

  10. IT’S TIME DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER and NOW, INSIDER TRADING! Can we seriously sit back, do nothing, and allow this vile, evil person to continue her senior role in destroying our country and stripping us little by little of our constitutional rights?

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!
