  1. the democrats NEED to do this on their own, we need to get to the bottom of this. Trump should go to prison for this! Peace

    1. @TheU2001 MIA – Could you be a little more non-specific? Doing WHAT? Wasting time? Holding traitors accountable? Mounting an insurrection? Establishing a commission? What?

    2. Bottom of what exactly? Exactly what do you think is going to be “discovered”? A bunch of randos on FACEBOOK decided to “storm the capital building”. We already know that. Whoopie-freakin-do. Now where’s the Congressional commission to investigate the months of ACTUAL violence ACTUAL destruction and ACTUAL death and ACTUAL destroyed lives. I mean if the pantywaist politicians should get to have a commission to investigate meemaws that made them pee their pants for a couple of hours after which they went back to business, the CITIZENS those politicians are supposed to SERVE should get the benefit of a commission to investigate the ACTUAL domestic terrorists that have caused them to have their lives disrupted and businesses destroyed for MONTHs now and that they will NEVER get to go back to their businesses.

    3. @TheU2001 MIA Well, you support the revocation of rights and freedoms, the destruction of democracy, authoritarian rule, installing a dictator, destroying the economy to enrich a handful at the top, decimating workers rights, slave labor, racism, sexism, bigotry and all the rest. Those are all Republican policies. That is what the Republican party fights for every single day.

      So, yeah, that would make you an enemy of America if you support all that.

      If you’re saying that you’re NOT for all that. Then you’re NOT a Republican. Because that is 100% what the Republican part stands for. If you don’t, you need to help bury the Republican party and start a proper conservative party (which is already what the Democrats are for the most part).

    1. 175 gop members are now doing 18 U.S. Code § 1505 – Obstruction of proceedings before departments, agencies, and committees.Whoever, with intent to avoid, evade, prevent, or obstruct compliance, in whole or in part, with any civil investigative demand duly and properly made under the Antitrust Civil Process Act, willfully withholds, misrepresents, removes from any place, conceals, covers up, destroys, mutilates, alters, or by other means falsifies any documentary material, answers to written interrogatories, or oral testimony, which is the subject of such demand; or attempts to do so or solicits another to do so; or
      Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication influences, obstructs, or impedes or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede the due and proper administration of the law under which any pending proceeding is being had before any department or agency of the United States, or the due and proper exercise of the power of inquiry under which any inquiry or investigation is being had by either House, or any committee of either House or any joint committee of the Congress—
      Shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both.

      (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 770; Pub. L. 87–664, § 6(a), Sept. 19, 1962, 76 Stat. 551; Pub. L. 91–452, title IX, § 903, Oct. 15, 1970, 84 Stat. 947; Pub. L. 94–435, title I, § 105, Sept. 30, 1976, 90 Stat. 1389; Pub. L. 97–291, § 4(d), Oct. 12, 1982, 96 Stat. 1253; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(K), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147; Pub. L. 108–458, title VI, § 6703(a), Dec. 17, 2004, 118 Stat. 3766.)

    2. Would not surprise me if DOJ quietly advances their own investigation once this commission is squashed by the senate. They already must have a huge file to start with….

  2. Thank you for taking time away from your busy lunch schedule at Mar a Lago Kevy. Your fellow Americans appreciate it.

  3. We want to arrest the leaders and those who incited the insurrection, not just the little people duped by the President and those in congress. Most criminals do not want to be investigated because the truth will come out in bold face facts.

    1. If an airplane falls out of the sky you don’t just remove the body’s and clean up.. YOU FIND OUT WHY!

  4. It’s because a large amount of them are complicit in it and don’t want the truth to reach a bunch of supporters who won’t believe it anyway.

    1. When is KEvin going to be ousted?
      “The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters,” Kevin McCarthy said on the House floor. “He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding. These facts require immediate action by President Trump.”

    2. I don’t believe he was complicit in the insurrection. He is just a spineless Trump sycophant and is certainly guilty of now trying to downplay Trump’s involvement. They are all now just subservient to Trump and the lunatic fringe that supports him.

  5. I will be treating him like a hostile witness because he’s not gonna tell you the truth

    1. @V for Wombat wtf are you talking about, they did take the Capital, four hours later the military showed up and took it back and there was no bloodshed because nobody was armed with guns.

    2. @studivan they say he won my state, I’m telling you they quit counting, I welcome an audit here in NC. I think Biden won because we elected a Democratic Governor and our biggest counties were blue

    3. @Santiago Pina If your ex is stalking you and threatening you, it’s reasonable to talk about your ex. Good thing the guy is already being investigated. Good thing they have already indicted 400 of his duped followers on criminal charges. But you keep fooling around and find out what loyalty to Trump brings, we aren’t bothered by it.

    4. @Santiago Pina Arizona is finding nothing. Oh, do you think they found bamboo fibers, Qtip followers are the most stupid

  6. Asking the Republicans to agree to the investigation is like asking a burglar to agree to his own burglary investigation. Yeah, that’ll work.

    1. The Republicans did agree but only if they got to investigate BLM and antifa protests that set the nation back $1 billion in property damages, large scale arson, mass vandalism, and theft, in one year alone. Nancy has to protect her mob so that they can intimidate other people for her like the brown shirts. When something isn’t bipartisan it should immediately said she was off that you have to actually look at it because the political ramifications are probably going to favor one party, which is why she objected to having anything other than January 6 investigated where there was no large scale arson theft and Sicknick deceased due to internal causes according to the autopsy, The only person that deceased due to another that day was a Female ex Air Force veteran.

    1. @Sean Flanagan if a plane falls out of the sky you don’t just remove the body’s and clean up .. you FIND OUT WHY it fell out of the sky

    2. @J Groovy the only to do that is get rid of joe manchin who i think he not a democrat at all.

    3. @Mio Naruse True. I think Manchin is either scared of the Republicans in his purple state or he’s using his “swing vote” status to get what he wants personally.

    4. Yep us GOPers are trying to block a Commission on all the RIOTS that happed in places like Portland, Mn, you know places like that where the likes of BLM and ANTIFA did 100s of millions of dollars in damage burned Fed and City/County courthouses and cost untold numbers of shop/store owners to close there doors for good. Well GOP wont block them but may as well when brought up to the Dematards all you hear is Crickets or it was Trumps fault.

  7. DOJ AND the FBI need to investigate Kevin McCarthy for his involvement in the insurrection

    1. @Hououin Kyouma the brain washed person who is a robot calls out a person for being a robot. Very robot of you.

    2. @Jen Suckie typical conservative. Can’t take responsibility for their actions. By the way the “I rubber you’re glue” defence isn’t valid past 5 years old. It was trump supporters, white supremacists and nazis ( sorry I repeat myself ) that did it. Only in conservative world would it make sense that the side that wanted trump gone would try and block the certification of the election got rid of him. Ya, get your head out of tucker carlson’s butt.

    3. @TheU2001 MIA as much as the trump administration appointees would let them, that’s how much the FBI did.

    4. @MarkBalderas What crime is McCarthy responsible for in the Capitol Riot? There is no record of him aiding & abetting the violent crowd and if you point to his remarks in November of last year, that was three days after the election, where it was still in contention.

  8. That’s why it’s needed. All the clowns responsible are still in office, they need to be locked up!

    1. @David Frye They just need to get rid of the filibuster and pass HR1 NOW… then everyone just go vote….end of problem…no more MAGATS…EVER…because we will keep turning states blue

    2. @Robert Arthurs you must think you’re cute.

      Newsflash: YOU’RE NOT.

      Who’s president? Joe Biden. Deal with it.

    3. @David Frye I know, that’s why it needs to be Independent and dem. or possibly just Independent.a lot of them will most likely have to testify. It is a conflict of interest.

    4. Yes

      Many criminal democrats in positions of power

      And the corrupt lying mainstream media enables their fail

    1. Even those who aren’t complicit are scared of how his Mean Girls tactics may harm their chances of running in their overly gerrymandered districts in 2022. If two thirds of your constituents are so out of touch they believe the word of a known conman despite all evidence to the contrary, what can you do?

  9. It’s pretty clear that the GQP cares about finding out the truth about the Jan 6 attack as my dog cares about finding out the truth about who ate the bacon I left on the kitchen table.

  10. Can only hope that there will be a route at mid-term elections and these shysters are voted out. They are not working for the people.

  11. Every single one of these politicians who are against this commission are one in the same with the insurrectionist on January 6th. They don’t want to see their own brothers and sisters in jail, their comrades. After this commission, they need to investigate what’s in the pouch underneath McConnell’s neck.
