Morning Greatness: Pelosi Blows Up J6 Commission, McCarthy Takes Toys and Leaves Sandbox

Good Thursday morning.

Two minutes of hate:

Squeaker of the House (typo and it stays) Nancy Pelosi blew up the J6 witch-burning commission yesterday when she rejected Minority Leader McCarthy’s picks to be on the committee. Specifically she didn’t like McCarthy’s choices of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN.) Who the hell is Pelosi to say who the Republicans choose as their representatives? Piss off.

According to The Hill, “Both are among the most staunch defenders of former President Trump and deny his role in instigating the attack, and Pelosi — fueled by objections from within her caucus — accused the pair of threatening ‘the integrity’ of the coming investigation.

In a rare moment of good sense, McCarthy yanked the other GOPers from witch-burning sandbox. There should be no pretense of legitimacy around this circus. “Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts,” McCarthy said in a statement published Wednesday.

The only “GOPer” will be Liz Cheney. “Any person who would be third in line to the presidency must demonstrate a commitment to the constitution and a commitment to the rule of law, and Minority Leader McCarthy has not done that,” she said. Hey lady, it’s gonna be a great look for your re-elect, hanging and yucking it up with a bunch of Democrats who are trying to cripple the GOP.

“At every opportunity, the Minority Leader has attempted to prevent the American people from understanding what happened,” Cheney said. There are numerous investigations by the committees to investigate what happened already. This is not an attempt to understand what happened, this is an attempt to keep their INSURRECTION garbage in the news and use the power of government to compel and investigate to help the Democrats in 2022. Because if there isn’t’ some fabricated soap opera in the news to smear Republicans, people will wonder what the Democrats are doing with their power. It’s that simple. We all saw what happened with the RUSSIA collusion hoax. It’s the same thing.
