Does she want to seek truth or just stigmatize Trump voters? The answer came into sharp focus today.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that she is using her power to reject two Congressmen picked for her Select Committee investigating January 6th: Rep. Jim Jordan and Rep. Jim Banks. Two men likely to ask tough questions that challenge the Democratic narrative about that day.
Said Pelosi, “The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision.”
Certainly Pelosi’s decision has nothing whatsoever to do with Jordan’s curiosity over the lack of security at the Capitol that day. And Pelosi’s role in that. “There’s one fundamental question that I hope Democrats will actually answer,” Jordan has said. “That is why wasn’t there a proper security presence that day? And frankly, only the speaker can answer that question.”
In response to Pelosi blocking Jordan and Ryan, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has pulled all five GOP nominees to the Select Committee. McCarthy called Pelosi’s action “an egregious abuse of power.” It “will irreparably damage this institution.”
Denying the voices of members who have served in the military and law enforcement, as well as leaders of standing committees, has made it undeniable that this panel has lost all legitimacy and credibility and shows the Speaker is more interested in playing politics than seeking the truth.
If she doesn’t seat the Republican nominees, he said, Republicans will investigate the event on their own.

It’s the vile, demonic Botoxian.
Wouldn’t expect a thing less from it.
Where will her committee get it’s Money ?
“The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision.” Agree wholeheartedly. When a few hundred citizens are encouraged by Capitol police to enter the Congressional complex, someone must pay. The single culprit in all of this is Pelosi herself. The time will come when she will pay the highest price for her tyranny.
Well well well…
‘nanzie’ is referencing things as unprecedented.
The senaniganic goings on starting with the theft of our election and the continuings on with the Jan 6 distraction blockade, hide behinds,is and has “unpresidented” the Country
On nanzie’s que I am coining a new word.
Yes I said Un President ED as in no none nada on hand and condition past tensed, presidentlessly, out of stock. We don’t have a president period .
Anyone who still supports the Democrats has a criminal heart.
We do have the hand puppet of the Kenyan from Indonesia playing one on TV......
“Anyone who still supports the Democrats has a criminal heart.”
Pretty much so.
Pelosi does not want any objective decisions. What she wants is a slew of canted democratic decisions incriminating anyone who was in Washington D. C. and is Republican. That is a fact!
The democratic party House leadership have already scripted the committee’s final report.
The Committee’s job is to rubber stamp the conclusion that Pelosi, Nadler, Schitt and Clyburn have written.
No Republican Representative need take part in it.
On the way to a banana republic.
“senaniganic goings on”
‘Shenanigan ic’ is was a lapse of synapse as a product of another spate of rant inspired by the corruption that has beset our once great country. It of course was blown up some by the sabotage spell check auto correcting I didn’t even say that tech? gods speech police.
Sounds perfectly cromulent when you put it that way.
