The U.S. House of Representatives voted 252-175 in favor of a politically chosen and Democrat-controlled commission to what they say will be an investigation into the January 6th riot at the Capital. All 217 of the Democrats voted for it and 35 Republicans joined them.
This would be the 5th taxpayer-paid “investigation” into what occurred on January 6th, apparently, these 252 politicians believe we are flush with so much money that they have no problem spending other people’s money for a 5th investigation.
The current investigations are:
- Department of Justice
- 2 in Senate Committees
- Architect of the Capitol given $10 million for a full review of the capital for ways to further secure it
A valuable piece of information is the appointment of the Chair of the “investigation” goes to Schumer and Pelosi. The Schumer and Pelosi Chair will then in turn appoint the staff of that committee which in turn will make all the staff Democrats.
Many Republican lawmakers, including House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, have argued that any Jan. 6th commission should also investigate violence associated with last summer’s Black Lives Matter/Antifa protests.
I agree that the domestic terrorism committed by Biden/Democrat supporters like Black Lives Matter and Antifa should be part of that commission or a second commission should be created and the chair should be appointed by McCarthy and McConnel.
Here are the 35 House Republicans who voted to create the Jan. 6th commission:
