If you didn’t already know that a “Jan. 6 Commission” controlled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was going to be a partisan witch hunt, Pelosi just confirmed it with her latest move.

Pelosi had appointed Democratic choices to the Commission including Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), so you already know how biased it was going to be, stacked with anti-Trump people.

It was already stacked, with Democrats having eight choices for members and Republicans only getting five.

But when Republicans announced their choices for the Commission, Pelosi vetoed two of them: Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

In a statement, Pelosi reiterated the lie that the three-hour riot on Jan. 6 was the worst domestic assault on American Democracy since the Civil War. She then gave the following rationale for rejecting the two members.

“With respect for the integrity of the investigation, with an insistence on the truth and with concern about statements made and actions taken by these Members, I must reject the recommendations of Representatives Banks and Jordan to the Select Committee.

“The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision.”

How could there be any more proof that she only wants a partisan display? She just proved it in spades. Jordan had also made it clear that if he got on the panel he was going to question Pelosi about the lack of security that day. Apparently, that wasn’t something that Pelosi wanted to face.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is striking back now. He’s now announced he’s going to pull all the Republican appointees from the Commission unless she seats the two people to whom she was objecting.

“Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees.” McCarthy said, “Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.” He also called her action an “egregious abuse of power.”

McCarthy’s statement: “Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of
