Mitch McConnell Makes Decision on Jan. 6th Commission Bill

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has informed Republicans that he is opposed to the House’s bipartisan bill to create a commission to investigate the origins of the Jan. 6th Capitol riot.

Politico reports:

McConnell had signaled on Tuesday that he was undecided but came down more firmly after another day of deliberations, according to a person with direct knowledge of his remarks. The Kentucky Republican’s stance casts serious doubt on the future of legislation creating a bipartisan commission on the Capitol riot — a bill set to pass the House later Wednesday — if major changes aren’t made.

Both former President Donald Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) are opposed to the commission proposal.

Rep. McCarthy says that he is opposed to the bill because it does not investigate political violence pushed by violent riots in American cities last summer.

Trump released a statement attacking Nancy Pelosi’s proposal for the independent commission, calling it a “trap.”

“Republicans in the House and Senate should not approve the Democrat trap of the January 6 Commission. It is just more partisan unfairness and unless the murders, riots, and fire bombings in Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago, and New York are also going to be studied, this discussion should be ended immediately. Republicans must get much tougher and much smarter, and stop being used by the Radical Left. Hopefully, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy are listening!,” Trump wrote.

This story is developing and will be updated as more information becomes available.

C,mon, we all know what would happen. The left would bring this up during the midterms and use it as a rallying cry for their side.

If not this, something else. That’s what the left does. Never expect rationality from the left and just do what is right. You get screams from them no matter what you do.

Why not let law enforcement do their job and the people in Congress get back to screwing up the country, you know, their job. Not sure why Congress exists, their job is to create laws and then they denigrate anyone that tries to enforce the laws they passed, so why do we need a Congress? By their own actions they are admitting they are unnecessary.

ATTN DEMs-RINOs Political leaders: I voted for President Trump twice! I had nothing to do with the break in of the capitol building, nor do I condone what happened there! President Trump did not incite the riot. We know you impeached President Trump because of your hatred for him. We, President Trump supporter’s, are NOT “domestic terrorist!” The fact is, we want justice! Justice for Hillary’s emails, Clinton foundation, Uranium One deal, fake Russian narrative, FISA abuse, obama’s spying on Candidate -President Trump, slanderous FBI investigation, impeachment (twice), and the stolen Presidential -Senate Election. & we have not forgotten the slanderous attacks coming from DEM political leaders, MSM, and the attacks from big tech, i.e. face book, twitter, yahoo who have taken our accounts, suspensions, timeouts, shadow banning etc. And then lets not forget, DEMs have NOT condemn ANTIFA / BLM (BLM being funded by our tax dollars)!

Pelosi has NO ONE to rein her in & she has done NOTHING but ABUSE her power as “speaker”. Surely , somewhere there MUST be “rules ” regarding her behavior as “unstatesmanlike like” OR unethical! She is nothing but a tyrant & a despot.”WHO” says that she can install metal detectors, “fine” anybody who doesn’t DO as she dictates, INSIST everyone wear masks, continue to vote in the house by proxy. Who the hell does she think she is?To boot, just “where” did all this ABSOLUTE POWER time from? This isn’t Rome & she’s NOT Caesar! Republicans better start digging into the duties, decorum, house rules & ETHICS that “govern” the speakers behavior.Somehow I don’t “think” that “clapping like a seal, ripping up the President’s speech” & disrespecting the office of the President is the sterling behavior that we should all emulate. What a phony CINO!

The nation has grown weary of the Democrat Bureau of Investigation. Nobody’s buyin’ it anymore and most are losing patience with the constant democrat Trump hunt. Most are especially sick of the New York obsession to find errors in his tax returns.

The democrat party now operates off the rails because it didn’t hear the railroad torpedo in Arizona. Pelosi and Waters are hanging on by the skin of their false teeth. They hope to eke a bit more wealth before they quit. And at that time, Schumer will lose his House support. I’d guess he’ll follow his dominant partners since he’ll be 72 when he’s up for reelection.

The invasion of the capitol on Jan. 6 was SET UP by the democrats three weeks before it happened. The D.C. police allowed antifa and BLM to enter into the group of patriots in front of the capitol and they are the people who broke into the capitol. Some of the patriots followed them and they are being prosecuted for their stupidity. The LYING corporate press (mouth piece for the democrats) never mentioned that it was antifa and BLM who broke into the capitol. It was a democrat SET UP and it worked exactly like they planned.

Mitch is right about this. Why only the Capitol incursion? Why not investigate all the more significant violence perpetrated by The Left, BLM, Antifa and funded by George Soros?

This proposal is a disgrace. It is so full of party politics with the Democrats trying to make a riot into an insurrection. Unarmed people cannot overthrow the government. Recently released video showing police having a peaceful conversing with Capitol intruders who are calling for peaceful dialogue blows the lid off any insurrection accusations. The Democrats are pushing more of their ‘let’s pretend’ politics.

Now that the video showing the capitol cops “ushering” the rioters in (except for Lieutenant Michael Byrd, who murdered Ashli Babbitt) There isn’t much left for the democRATs to investigate.

We all know the dems will fabricate a straw man if allowed to “investigate” and with McConnell standing against it will give them the ammo to say that the republicans are covering for an overthrow of the Biden administration.
