House GOP Leader Breaks Silence on Jan. 6 Commission

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that he cannot support bipartisan legislation for a 9/11 style commission to investigate the Capitol riot on January 6th.McCarthy says that because Nancy Pelosi “refuses to negotiate in good faith” and expand the scope of the investigation that he will not support it

According to The Hill:

“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 said in a statement released Tuesday morning.

McCarthy said he could not support the legislation because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “refused to negotiate in good faith” on the parameters of the commission and because Democrats’ “renewed focus” does not include the “political violence” in American cities, the 2017 shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice or the fatal attack on Capitol Police on April 2.

“The presence of this political violence in American society cannot be tolerated and it cannot be overlooked,” McCarthy wrote.

“I have communicated this to our Democrat colleagues for months and its omission is deeply concerning,” he added.

However, the final passage of the legislation likely will not fall on McCarthy but instead on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell has previously voiced support for expanding the investigation to not only focus on Jan. 6th but also on the riots last summer which plagued American cities.

No problem if John Durham, the most rusted name in investigators, leads the investigation. It will go on for centuries with no results.

Damocrap’s are the cause of all of the violence. They are the known trouble makers in politics. They had the attack at the Capitol pland if TRUMP SUPPORTERS showed up. They are the ones that did this fraudulent election. They are the cause of all this chaos in our country.. Because these are the idiots that want our free country to be a communist country . that’s why kamalaand biden are holding WHITEHOUSE HOSTAGE.

That is because they don’t care what they have to do to make things be the way they want them. That’s why they ignore our constitution. And all the stink about the 2nd amendment . They want to take your guns away so you can not resist them when they give the orders to what used to be AMERICA’s. Police. The smart police are leaving the police force this government are going to turn these commie cops against U.S. citizens. Just like China cops. COMMUNIST cops. I had a friend that moved from Venezuela as a teenager. In the middle of the night the commie cops would come kick your door down and whatever they wanted if resist them they would just shoot you . they would take your wife daughter son food money ANYTHING THEY WANTED. And that us what will happen here if people don’t stop OBEYING the COMMUNIST RULES they have been imposing on American’s IF YOU DONT STAND FOR SOMETHING YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING!!! If standing up for your COUNTRY FAMILIES, KIDS , Your rights and constitution ain’t worth it you don’t deserver it anyway. Do not give in do not give up your guns . GOD GAVE US THE RIGHTS AND ABILITY’S TO DEFEND OURSELVES. !!! IT IS YOUR RIGHT TO DO SO . AND NO COMMUNIST IS NOT GOING TO CONVINCE ME ANY OTHER WAY. THAT INCLUDES COMMIE COPS , COMMIE FBI, COMMIE CIA, OR ANYONE WORKING AGAINST AMERICAN’S UNDER THIS COMMUNIST THATS HOLDING THE WHITEHOUSE HOSTAGE. LIKE THE NEWER SONG THAT CAME OUT DONT KNOW THE SINGER . “””THIS MY HOUSE”” AND THEY BETTER BELIEVE IT.

It never ceases to amaze me that when the republicans feel it is safe to do so, they speak out. McCarthy knows he is unable to stop this from going forward so he feels safe and thinks he will gain some brownie points with MAGA for doing so. He is making a RINO move here.

Time to push back on the democrats. They do not want to investigate anything fully. It is their way or the highway. This began many months ago when they ignored the unpeaceful peaceful protest to burn cities and destroy property. Then the slope. Election which they only want to believe everything was legit , that needs full investigation but they are too afraid they will be caught so they obstruct any investigation and now they want to only investigate what happened on January 6th. And not investigate what actually happened prior to January 6 that actually caused it. The USA is going in the wrong direction and sinking
Fast.

The reports which I have read regarding the January 6th invasion of the capitol are that three weeks before it happened the democrats planned to have antifa and BLM moved into the group of patriots and that they are the people who broke into the capitol. Of course some of the patriots followed them but bottom line it was all another democrat SET UP to LIE and blame President Trump for the invasion. And with the help of the democrats completely controlled corporate press it worked just as they planned it.

The killer is a black cop that shot a white woman. The Dems won’t report this for fear of a riot. Riots are only allowed when a white cop shoots a black person.

You haven’t seen the latest phone pictures of the January 6 scandal? A Capitol policeman allowed the Trumpsters to stay inside. Remember the guy with the buffalo(?) horns? The cop was telling everyone to keep quiet and behave. The guy was saying the same thing and the people were just looking around. They didn’t break anything, were not
“rioting”, stealing or committing any other crime. Just looking around. The only real offense committed was the murder of an unarmed female vet by a Capitol policeman. His name has been withheld but her family has a law suit going. Oh another thing I saw that I haven’t heard explained. It only lasted a few minutes but there were two busses and 1 or 2 SUVs at the back of the Capitol and Capitol police were letting the passengers out at the back and I don’t think they were wearing MAGA hats.

The “cover our asses” investigation is in the wind. It will be used to cover both Democrats and Republicans, so everybody will be happy – except the bamboozled American people (as usual). Democrats are “no damn good; but then, Republicans are “no damn good” either. Time for Americans to sweep the Aegean stables clean. of this political trash. Time for a Trump takeover.

Very obvious from the beginning the report by MSM and Democrats concerning January 6th were a complete LIE. I must include Republicans who bought in to the B.S. One thing it does prove is that many of our elected officials are afraid of the people. If they aren’t constantly protected by security and behind a microphone they are afraid of the people.

When it is suppose to be an investigation about the incident on Jan 6 why should many other things that have no bearing on the Jan 6 incident be included. If they want an investigation into that then have a separate investigation into other things. Congress never sees to have a problem having investigations, into every thing even when what they are investigating is a settled thing.
I do think McCarthy is afraid of what the commission will find out about whoa nd why it happened, which the majority of the population already know.

I have read many of these posts and they all point to the 2nd A. but one place to watch is the Pentagon. There is a law that keeps the Army/armed forces from deploying in the US. But if you keep watch there are many of these new generals that are siding with the present establishment. The national guard was used to get the people to accept those in uniform to issue orders and carry weapons (yes they had live ammo). Now if the generals order the military to deploy and the guard is also deployed (even though the gard is supposed to be controlled by the state governors) no home owned weapons would or could stand up to their weapons. Several incidents inside the US have shown soldiers and cops will shoot at civilians on order.
