As horrible as the events of 1/6 were, the vast majority of Republican lawmakers would like people to forget about it. A select few GOP congresspeople were willing to investigate the matter.
Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney both accepted Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to participate in the 1/6 panel. And for their service to their country, they were branded “Pelosi Republicans.”
It has been pretty obvious, over the past few weeks, that the GOP has no interest in looking into the events of January 6th. Rather than taking a congressional panel seriously, Kevin McCarthy tried to make a sideshow of it by putting Trump sycophants like Jim Banks and Jim Jordan on it.
At nearly every turn, Republicans have resisted any attempts to look into the events of January 6th. Things got closer this week when congress looked to convene a panel to investigate the riots.
Kevin McCarthy, though, decided to throw a grenade into the investigation by placing Trump sycophants Jim Banks and Jim Jordan on the panel. Nancy Pelosi had no choice but to veto the selections causing McCarthy to pull all of his appointees.
Shortly after the January 6th insurrection on the Capitol, Republicans said the rights things about investigating the event. But in the months that have followed, GOP leadership has shown that their only goal is to protect Donald Trump at any cost.

Marjorie Taylor Greene seems to step in a different controversy each week. But the last week has been particularly galling for the Georgia Republican. After being roundly criticized for comparing mask wearing to the Holocaust, she doubled down on those comments on Tuesday.
Mitch McConnell runs a pretty right ship. And as a result, he seemingly has GOP senators in lock-step behind him. The Kentucky senator has moved on from Donald Trump and has advised his colleagues to do the same.
Chuck Schumer has had to deal with Mitch McConnell for a very long time. Starting n 2014, McConnell and the Republicans held the senate. The idea of negotiating with the Kentucky senator was essentially a joke. McConnell used his power to shut down a supreme court nomination and push through a tax cut for the wealthy.

“This is no time to take our eye off the ball. If we are to succeed in stopping the radical Democrat agenda from destroying our country, these internal conflicts need to be resolved so as not to detract from the efforts of our collective team,” McCarthy wrote. “Having heard from so many of you in recent days, it’s clear that we need to make a change. As such, you should anticipate a vote on recalling the Conference Chair this Wednesday.
Writing on Twitter, Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) says he warned House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) that his support for efforts by conservatives to challenge the results of the 2020 general election would lead to violence, but that McCarthy ignored and brushed aside his concerns.
When Donald Trump became a politician in 2015, it should have been clear to the Republican party who he really was. As a businessman, he had left a trail of destruction, stiffing contractors and turning his back on partners.
Tucker Carlson has gone completely off the rails over the last few months. The Fox host was always controversial, but he’s recently gone deeper into anti-mask hysteria and white supremacist theories.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) mocked House GOP leadership with a “help wanted” ad as they, led by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), continue to attack Representative Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) for refusing to back former President Donald Trump’s fictions about the 2020 general election.
