Congress should investigate the Jan 6th riot in Capitol and other recent riots at iconic federal sites.
It won’t happen.
There are no bipartisan members on the current committee. Nancy Pelosi (D.Calif.), House Speaker banned Republican nominees from serving on the committee.
No speaker had ever before rejected the minority party’s nominees to a select House committee.
Pelosi had two criteria for allowing Republican participation. Every minority Republican member who voted for President Donald Trump’s impeachment had to vote in favor, even though they are unlikely to win the election in 2022.
There were 210 Republican House Members. There were 210 Republican House members. Adam Kinzinger (R.Ill.), and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) were willing to comply with Pelosi’s requirements.
An honest investigation would have provoked argumentation, cross-examination, and disagreements.
There was no opposition to the January 6th trial. The trial’s subtext was derived from Lavrentiy Pavlovich Brian (Soviet Minister of Internal Affairs).
Would the committee be possible if Trump hadn’t considered a third run for President?
Its slick Hollywood-produced optics demonstrate that the committee has no interest in inconvenient facts. Why did a Capitol officer lethally shoot a petite unarmed woman entering a Capitol window? And why was the officer’s identity and, indeed all information about his record, withheld from the public?
Why didn’t this committee investigate the presence of large numbers of FBI agents and informants among the crowd? Matthew Rosenberg was a progressive New York Times reporter who claimed that there were “a lot of FBI informants” among those who attacked Capitol Hill. ”
Rosenberg laughed at his journalistic coworkers who promoted a narrative about psychodramatic “insurrection”. These people were creating (Jan. 6), some organized thing that wasn’t.
A true committee will also investigate why so many warnings were made about large crowds gathering but no government response to protect against violent elements.
A true committee will discover why the media and government claimed that Brian Sicknick was killed by Trump supporters. However, it is clear that he died naturally.
The members of the committee won’t answer questions as they aren’t authorized to ask but will confirm a narrative.
A true committee would also investigate other, more serious riots on federal property.
Protestors attempted to torch the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church on May 31, 2020.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser mysteriously did not send police to reinforce overwhelmed Secret Service agents who, at moments, seemed unable to keep the mob from the White House itself.
Later, the New York Times exclaimed “Trump shrinks back” Did the Times pretend Trump was retreating from a righteous mob?
As a precaution, the Secret Service moved the president of the United States and his family to an underground bunker.
The riots near or at the White House continued through the fall but mysteriously subsided in the last weeks of the election.
Three weeks after the Washington riot violence, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harir appeared to encourage continued violent protests. She said, “They’re not going to stop.”
Harris cheerleading was not let down. Harris cheerleading was accompanied at times by prominent left-wing luminaries who contextualized violent behavior. ”
Chris Cuomo is a former CNN anchor and said: “And please show to me where it says protesters are supposed to be politely calm.”
The 2020 summer looting, riotings, and arson events lasted nearly four months. There were more than 35 deaths and over 14,000 injuries to police officers. Property damage totaling between $1-2million and $2 billion.
The violence targeted many government buildings from police precincts to courthouses. Federal investigations weren’t conducted to determine why the destruction went on.
Why were the vast majority of those arrested released by authorities?
How could Antifa and BLM extremists have orchestrated violence via social networking? And how did prominent elected officials condone violence? Or converse directly with the ringleaders.
A bipartisan House select commission could have helped to establish a path to peace by probing this period in American history.
This is why there was no such committee.
