Do you want to know why Republicans didn’t go along with the so-called “January 6th Commission” in Congress, blocking its creation some weeks ago? Well, you probably know why, but just in case you don’t, Nancy Pelosi offers a perfect example that bolsters the reasoning.

In her latest denture cream-laden rant, Pelosi announced the creation of a partisan select committee to “investigate” what happened on January 6th. Yet, she simultaneously managed to undercut the justification for such a committee by proclaiming that she already knows the “root causes” of what happened at the Capitol.

As to the claims of anti-Semitism, Donald Trump was the most pro-Jewish president in modern history (and perhaps all of presidential history). If anti-Semitism motivated Trump supporters, they clearly wouldn’t be Trump supporters in the first place.
