(AbsoluteNews.com) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) caused an uproar when she and House Democrats created the January 6 committee. The lawmakers claimed they wanted to get to the bottom of what happened on that ill-fated day and claimed a bipartisan panel would be the best way to do that. That went south really quickly, and now she’s singing a different tune.
Problems arose when the Speaker refused to seat Republican Reps. Jim Banks (R-IL) and Jim Jordan (R-OH). House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was livid when his colleague rejected two of his five choices to serve on the committee. In retaliation, he pulled all of his nominees, leaving Pelosi with just Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who has a history of betraying the GOP. Pelosi then appointed Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) to serve, claiming the two RINOs made the commission bipartisan.
Pelosi Not Listening
On Monday, July 26, McCarthy attended a White House event where a reporter asked him if he thinks he should allow the other GOP committee nominees to attend the hearings. The minority leader responded, “Who is that, Adam and Liz? Aren’t they kind of like Pelosi Republicans?” He went on to say nobody thinks the committee is going to get to the truth. He called the entire process “disrespectful to the nation.”
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) slammed Cheney for her recent actions. She told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that Cheney is a “Pelosi pawn” who “does not represent the Republican conference, or Republican voters, or the American people.”
When Pelosi was asked about the comments being made by Republican lawmakers, she said she doesn’t respond to the things they say, so it’s a waste of time to even ask her what they think. The Speaker has made it clear that she isn’t interested in the opinions of the GOP lawmakers, which is one of the reasons they wanted nothing to do with the committee in the first place.
On Tuesday, the lawmakers on the committee met for the first time. They listened to testimony from officers who were on Capitol Hill on the day of the incident. It will come as a surprise to no one to learn Democrats proceeded to politicize the hearing, which is exactly what McCarthy and other Republicans have warned would happen.
How is American supposed to trust reports by a committee like that?
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
