House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has formed a Select Committee to “investigate” the Capitol riot that occurred on Jan. 6.
But she refused to accept two of the Republican members proposed by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), so McCarthy pulled all the Republican members from the Committee, calling it a sham, partisan process.
It was already clear that it was going to be a dumpster fire when Pelosi made one of the Democratic picks avowed Trump hater, Rep. Liz Cheney (Not Really a Republican-WY). Cheney came out after the news about Pelosi’s refusal and said she supported Pelosi.
Of course, there are already multiple investigations going on into the riot, in particular, that by the FBI.
But Pelosi wants to have a Committee by which she can flagellate the Republicans, make false accusations against them and talk about how bad they are as we go into the 2022 elections. It’s sad and gross, but that’s what this is about, not truth.
If Pelosi thinks she’s putting anything over on Americans, she might want to read the new Rasmussen poll.
Now that House Democrats have created a committee to investigate the January 6 Capitol riot, most voters believe Congress should also investigate the Black Lives Matter protests that sparked violence in major cities last year. . . https://t.co/L12Yguj26k pic.twitter.com/iJidxO8b28

More than 2,000 police officers sustained injuries in the line of duty. Should congress investigate the 2020 violent protests that occurred in these cities?
66% said yes, they should, 21% said no and 13% said they weren’t sure. By comparison, only 49% said they supported Pelosi’s investigatory Committee. So two-thirds want the BLM/Antifa investigated for the full year of rioting, killing, and assaulting people, far more than support Pelosi’s investigation.
