Senate GOP Blocks Jan. 6 Commission Bill

Reuters Twitter

Senate Republicans voted on Friday to block legislation to form a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6th Capitol riot. Senators voted 54-35 on the House-passed bill.

The Hill reports:

“I do not believe the extraneous ‘commission’ that Democratic leaders want would uncover crucial new facts or promote healing. Frankly, I do not believe it is even designed to,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on the floor.

“That’s why the Speaker’s first draft began with a laughably rigged and partisan starting point, and why the current language would still lock in significant unfairness under the hood,” he added.

In addition to the politics, Republicans argued the commission would be duplicative to a joint investigation overseen by the Senate Rules Committee and the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

That report is expected to come out early next month. But, unlike a commission, the report would focus narrowly on Capitol security and intelligence.

The six Republicans who crossed party lines and voted with the Democrats to create the commission are Sens. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Mitt Romney (Utah), Susan Collins (Maine), Bill Cassidy (La.), Rob Portman (Ohio), and Ben Sasse (Neb.).

Pence is not even in the mix anymore. My guess is the dems could overcome the 60 vote cloture.

I wonder why this police officer got such preferential treatment?? Usually when an officer discharges his/her weapon, there is administrative leave, at least, and his/her name is published and awaiting charges. This woman was not armed and her stance was clearly visible. Maybe we do need an investigation, tho clearly, Pelosi would not be the one to conduct it

It seems that the dims are little children playing a game . When they lose they change the rules and demand a retry at winning . This is the big peoples lives they playing with and big people will hit back and destroy all of the traitors or most of them . They will be punished one way ore another or maybe many ways . God is watching and laughing his rear off or feeling no sympathy whatsoever for the liars and cheaters .

The January 6 invasion of the capitol was planned by the democrats three weeks before it happened. It was a big democrat SET UP by the democrats and the patriots walked right into it. The police allowed antifa and BLM to join the patriots in front of the capitol and they are the people who broke into the capitol followed by several not too bright patriots. It was all a SET UP by the democrats to use as another excuse to blame President Trump for something is wasn’t involved in.

Most of the Republican rally on Jan 6th were still listening to president Trump speak, while the people were vandalizing the capital. If you look at the timeline, he was still making his speech where he asked his followers to go peacefully and patriotically to the whitehouse to protest, not riot. CNN cut the showing of the speech before that was said, and so did the democrats in the hearing. The media colluded with the dems.

By the way, the Antifa and BLM that rioted on Jan 6th, filmed their part of the riot and were paid over $65 grand for the propaganda!!

Absolutely, I have said that all way long. Pelosi and Schumer are in charge of Capitol security and she allowed several officers to either go home early or not come in at all that day. Then there were people dressed in police looking uniforms but had no identifying labels on them standing on the Capitol steps that were holding doors open and allowing people to enter the through the doors. Who were these people?

And,the person that shot Ashley Babbit was also dressed in black. Why do we not know his name? Too many unanswered questions. The Democrats are evil and will stop at nothing to gain power, destroy DJT and these United States of America that we know and love. We must get to the bottom of this!!

I HAD SAID THE SAME THING IN ONE OF MY POSTS THAT THE DEMS SET UP THE SO CALLED INVASION AT THE CAPITAL BUILDING BY NOT HAVING REINFORCEMENTS AROUND AFTER BEING NOTIFIED DAYS BEFORE THAT THERE MIGHT BE TROUBLE ON THAT DAY. THE SGT, AT ARMS AND SPEAKER PELOSI FAILED TO PROTECT THE CAPITAL JUST TO BLAME PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR WHAT SHE ALLOWED AND HAD PLANNED TO HAPPEN. FOR FOUR YEARS THE DEMS UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP DID NOTHING IN CARRYING OUT THEIR DUTIES IN CONGRESS AND REFUSED TO WORK WITH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS STAFF. THE DEMOCRAT VOTERS MUST BE AS STUPID AS ALL GET OUT ESPECIALLY THE MIDDLE CLASS AND POVERTY LEVEL CITIZENS TO BELIEVE THAT THE WEALTHY DEMOCRATS ARE LOOKING OUT FOR THEIR BEST INTEREST. AND OUR COUNTRY IS HEADING FOR A MAJOR REVOLT IF THE DEMOCRATS CONTINUE ON A PATH TO DESTROY OUR GREAT NATION THAT IT WAS FROM 2016 TO 2020. i ALSO FEEL THAT OUR POLICE FORCES THAT ARE IN THE DEMOCRATIC CONTROL CITIES OUGHT TO GO ON A SICKOUT AND LET THE CRIMINALS KNOW IN ADVANCE SO THEY CAN GO AND ASSAULT AND STEAL FROM THE WEALTHY DEMOCRATS BOTH IN AND OUT OF POLITICS.

There was no insurrection on Jan. 6th 2020, some people tend to forget who that building belongs to. Does not belong to any senators, congressmen/women, it belongs to we the people. What happened was the people figured it was time to CLEAN UP THE CORRUPTION that is running rampant in this country. Just to bad they weren’t able to get their cleaning supplies in that day

Pelosi is the only person that caused the Jan 6th problem! The sneaky bitch cancelled security!! Her intention was to blame President Trump!! The Democrats are the worst people in the world! Sick and greedy and power hungry! President Trump probably insulted the bitch and she is going to get even if she kills herself and ?Hillary connived with her too. They both are going straight to hell sooner than later, after all, they both are old bitches and ugly dried up terrible devils!

I have a need to know when these jackasses are going to go to work on the very important issues of the American people. All I have seen since January is self before the American people. All they have done is to empower themselves, Demorats and the Repubs.

Why are the Dems so AFRAID of Trump? With Biden @ the helm the whole WORLD is laughing at “US”!Not only that, but everybody KNOWS that Biden is a demented crook incapable of tying his own shoelaces. Australia wants Biden to resign. Too bad that no other countries will support the “Aussies”.
