Not sure what you expected - that 7:5 ratio is about right.

Of the 5 democrats I would choose them from the 7 who voted for it. They’re on shaky ground at home and that might make them decent for the task.

I will expect the RATs to name one each of black, woman, homosexual, handicapped and hispanic. If one of those is a muzzie or some combination of the aforementioned, so much the better.

The Republican members of the Select Committee will be:
•Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) •Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Chairman
•Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH)
•Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS)
•Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL)
•Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL)
•Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA)

Coincidentally, these same names just popped up on an IRS audit request, and also on a request for FBI files.

Glad he wasted no time in naming the Republican members.

Time for Pelosi to do her job and name theirs and stop the politicking.

The only one I actually recognize and at this point and trust, other than Gowdy, is Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

Pelosi gets to choose. Those 7 don’t have a chance. I expect Ellison will be one of the 5, as a black and a muzzie he will be there to enforce political correctness.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) are in my opinion AAA-1 choices. I am not familiar with the other three, but I hope they are close to being as good.

you know, i guess i should be grateful that he didn't cave in to 6:6 like Nancy wanted... i guess i am insane because i keep hoping he will take a bold stance and not give the Dems leeway... like 8:4 would have been bold... the Dems never try to be fair with the Repubs...

Chaevitz is a fact witness. He was over there early on and his State Dept handlers or minders told people to not speak with him.

I hope they get into Question: Why have you not brought these guys to justice? You know who they are and where they are?

Right. The only surprise is that Boehner didn’t cave in and put an equal number of each on it as his RAT buddies demanded.

And so it begins. ABC reporting it’s a kangaroo court and Pelosi calling it a stunt getting plenty of “news” time.

If Pelosi drags her feet naming the DemocRATs, Gowdy can lay these out at the "D" chairs on Monday:
