Pelosi moves to hold vote on forming select committee to investigate Capitol riot

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is not giving up on her plans to probe the Jan. 6 “insurrection,” and this time, she’s dropping any pretense of bi-partisan goodwill.

As the Washington Examiner reported, the Speaker proceeded Monday with a proposal to set up a special, Democrat-controlled House select committee to probe the Capitol riot, after Senate Republicans previously rejected her calls for a 9/11-style investigation.

Pelosi calls for a new investigation

The new proposal is somehow even more nakedly partisan than the first effort, which at least garnered support from 35 Republicans. The new select committee would be dominated by Democrats — with eight Democrats and just five Republicans.

While Pelosi has offered to include a Republican on her side, many are likely doubting her goodwill after she declared Republicans “the enemy within” earlier this year, as CBS News reported.

Pelosi has continued to insist that an undefined “threat” endangers lawmakers, as Democrats and cable news pundits ramp up calls for a new “war on terror,” with many critics viewing it as an attempt to smear the political right.

Republicans balked at Pelosi’s ostensibly “bi-partisan” 9/11-style commission, which is seemingly an effort to keep America talking about Jan. 6 until the 2022 midterms, and they objected to her refusal to look at the destructive, left-wing riots that erupted last summer — the worst America has witnessed in decades.

Pelosi’s select committee explicitly reserves the power to keep investigating the tragic events of that day, indefinitely. But Democrats — never a group to waste a good tragedy — are crying, “look what you made us do,” as they move ahead with a second, more openly partisan effort, leaving even some Republicans who voted for Trump’s second impeachment to complain.

Witchhunt 2.0?

Rep. John Katko (R-NY) said he is “very disappointed” in Pelosi’s committee decision and compared it to the Republican-led Benghazi probe.

But some Republicans are fine with Pelosi’s measure, namely Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who echoed Democrats in accusing his own party of forcing Pelosi’s hand, as CBS News previously reported.

Kinzinger is seen as a top choice to be Pelosi’s token Republican, along with Liz Cheney (R-WY), another Trump critic who was ousted from House GOP leadership for banging on the “insurrection” drum.

“Senate Republicans did Mitch McConnell a ‘personal favor’ rather than their patriotic duty and voted against the bipartisan commission negotiated by Democrats and Republicans,” Pelosi said. “But Democrats are determined to find the truth.”

The House will take a vote on Pelosi’s revamped witch hunt on Wednesday.

  7. If the Democrats really want the truth it is very easy. GIVE PELOSI A LIE DETECTOR TEST as to her involvement in blocking the National Guard support from the onset. They could have controlled the individuals who created problems. PELOSI is evil and not only wants to tarnish Trump but to take over the United States Government and put her “puppets” in positions that support her thinking. Get rid of her now before she destroys our country.

    1. Nov. 2022 we take back the House and the Senate and send her back to San Francisco on her broom. No need to waste money on a plane ticket. Then we IMPEACH the 2 imposters nobody elected.

      1. I’m hoping that comes true but I’m not holding my breath! The demorats will find a way to get elected unless we Republicans take a stand and shut them down! I’m 76 years old but I’m will to take a stand, who else will stand?

  8. Pelosi will be gone very soon and she’s just flexing the puny muscle she has left, which is a 4 seat majority. If any one of those House Democrats could find where they left their integrity they could close her down by refusing to vote for her idiot “pograms” and Nazi tactics against her “enemies”.

    1. I quit working my desk job and now, I started earning 95 bucks hourly…How I did it. I am freelancing over the internet! My last job didn’t exactly make me happy so I wanted to take a break and have a fresh start…>> https://Www.Jobcash1.com

    1. Janice, I would care less if I read in the paper some drunk/drugged driver ran over N^a^n^c^y P^e^l^o^s^i and permanently term limited her….

    1. I would care less if I picked up the morning paper and read that N*a*n*c*y P^e^l^o^s^i got run over by a drunk/drugged driver…..

      1. I wouldn’t say I want NP dead but if she were hit by a car it would be even better if she were hit by an illegal alien that was arrested before for doing the same thing but they let him go. Maybe that would teach them not to go so light on the illegals and deport them… Nah. It’ll never happen!

  9. I hope that all of her GRANDSTANDING back fires on her and she is the o ne that get investigated, we all know except the lap dogs she is hip deep in all of this 1-6-21 CRAP at the CAPITOL, but all of this GRANDSTANDING is to distract from some other CORRUPTION she has done.

  10. Instead of wasting even more taxpayer treasure, Nancy should just have a closed door meeting with Nancy and decide on some “truth” you want to share with your media darlings and be done with it. It won’t matter anyway. No one believes anything that comes from either the media or DC anymore.
    Then Nancy just might have enough time to do the work of the people instead of what Nancy wants.

  11. They better watch out with that one as it may be shown the dems who started it. A criminal checking on criminal act.. they can alway do the usual made up verison like they are selling now. No ones buying lady. This lady needs to go. When you have been in office since washington was there it is time to go. To much swamp rats already
