GOP senators block bill to create Capitol riot commission

 

Senate Republicans blocked a bill that would have created an independent and bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol riot that left five people dead and about 140 officers injured. By a vote of 54 to 35, the Senate failed to advance the commission.

  1. It’s annoying that people keep saying, “the GOP ought to know better.” They know exactly what they’re doing. Get out and vote these p.o.s into the extinction.

    1. Alqueda then isis and now trump dark team what do they all have in common? Answer =destroying main government buildings and having a deep hatred

    2. @Leroy Masten why is wanting to get to the bottom of an INSURRECTION
      “fake outrage”?
      Don’t you want to know who’s responsible for an Insurrection on your country?

    1. @MrRocktex1978
      The media also won’t report the fact FBI even said they believe John Sullivan (and more) are the ones who instigated and riled up the Trump supporters. They won’t show the video that’s shows the “Q shaman” guy and other supporters of Trump’s speaking with the police who said they would let them come in on the grounds that they are peaceful.

    2. @Michael Williamson it is ridiculous how much control the media has on people and their way of thinking. Liberals are not the brightest people it seems. Just a fun proven fact. On May 15, 2021 the border patrol did not check for citizenchip on the I35 checkpoint. Word got around by illegals. 1000’s fled to sanctuary cities and up north. This is what we get with Biden open borders. Inflation is thru the roof. The only thing that senile man does is spend his favorite “trillion dollars” denomination to appease his far left base. Also, undoes all of Trump’s policies

    3. @Michael Williamson just the fact with that man with the head piece. You can tell it was a joke a mile away. They were upset and riled up. But they had not intention of doing bodily harm. THey just were fed up with the democRATS controlling everything. They were wrong but in the end it was liek a stroll or tourist Captial visit. Now the BLM riots and looting that was scary. But that one the media and the democRATS forgot about.

      The majority of the violence appeared to be mostly outside, aside from the officer that fired his gun inside and sadly killed the USAF veteran (who these people trash on the daily for simply being his supporter). I’m just waiting for them to release the countless hours of CCTV footage they have in their possession from every single security camera in, outside, and all around the Capitol building. I suspect we’ll be waiting a long time before we see the footage. The cop speaking with Q shaman guy and the other Trump supporters (who were all arrested, of course. Paraded as the most violent ones) was the very same officer we seen on picture and video telling them they were in the most sacred chamber of the Capitol building.

    1. @Bill Billson
      They were Democrats? I’m fairly sure that opportunistic anarchists aren’t even registered to vote.

    2. @Four Monkeys Cafe
      How can you compare a deadly attack on our Capitol over a lie Trump created, to a protest against unarmed, black people being murdered by cops? Lame distraction.

    3. @Four Monkeys Cafe how about because one was an attempted INSURRECTION on our country… no difference only for the GUILTY and their PROTECTORS

    4. @Leroy 100
      Same old FOX propaganda talking points and distractions. Hah, so boring and irrelevant. A deadly attack on our Capitol to overturn the results of the safest, most secure election in US history over a lie Trump created is hardly the same as anarchists using peaceful protests to create chaos. Where’s the comparison?

    1. Guess anything to do to cling on to power they so desperately crave over the lives of Americans. History has already written off this sad chapter.

    2. Maybe now we can focus on the real issues that affect is today. Eg, a little thing called Covid 19! Are Nansi and Chuc not intrested in the origin and how to prevent?

    3. @Anthony None of the Politicians lost a penny on Jan 6th. They’re all millionaires. A small business owner lost his/her business during the 2020 riots. Their livelihood is gone. They’re struggling to make a living, feed their families. Hundreds of small businesses were set ablaze, completely destroyed. I care about a small business owner, a mom & pop shop on Main Street before I care about a Politician. The Politicians won’t pay a dollar for any of the damage on Jan 6th, the people will.

    4. @Anthony Hypocrisy of the century. Remind me of the joke, where a man wearing very thick spectacles kept looking at his toes and saying, where do these mountains lead to and the narrow valleys between them.

    5. @AT 1984 and they deserve all the help their communities and the government can give them. There is a good article about small business owners struggling to rebound after BLM riots in the NYtimes by Nellie Bowles.

      Those small business owners were victims of crime.

      Jan 6, so were the 5 who died that day, all of their families who lost a loved one, the cop who had his eyes gauged out, the cops with PTSD, at least 140 cops injured, some seriously AND all the politicians who suffered from the trauma that day. Most were victims of crime, some victims because of their participation in crime.

      So this downplay of Jan 6 by comparing it to the BLM riots doesn’t make much sense to me. It feels VERY politically driven.

    1. @Jo Poveromo I like mitt Romney, George Bush and even Rick santorum and couple others…maybe u think I dont like republicans….am just seeing who the fakes are and trump presidency revealed all of them that we clearly can see

    2. @Don Dood what? I don’t care about how you feel, I care about facts, so you have no facts? You just say this because you want to? Would you bet your life on that belief? With no facts? Just emotion?

    3. @Don Dood I don’t know what you like, all I know is you aren’t able to prove your point, you should try, you might realize that you do t actually believe that, because it is factually incorrect, you cannot prove systematic racism, I’ve tried constantly, it is not there.

    4. @Don Dood I don’t listen to people’s emotions about facts, I listen to provable facts, and so does anyone else who are worth listening to, so get some facts and prove your point, your emotions hold no value to facts.

    5. @Jo Poveromo I dont care what u say…your facts is lies….your facts equal to a man setting a house on fire then the man turn on the camera and starts to film the house burning and decide to get water to out it just so that the people who watch the film can see that it wasn’t him that burned the house but actually out it…..trust me u off….the facts u getting are lies made up to make themselves look innocent

    1. @Matthew Chick And China is your boss. And Joe is just kinda wandering around eating ice cream. Crazy world

  3. The GOP: overwhelmingly unpopular
    The country: hobbling along
    The big liars: probably going to jail
    Republicans: “Hurray! We are winning the 5 dimensional chess.”

  4. GOP: “What about due process?”
    We the People: “Absolutely! Let’s get started.”
    GOP: “Er… No.”

    1. @Paul Idson it’s propaganda Rethuglicons keep perpetuating like the big lie.

      Here’s the facts, over four years of Trump’s crimes that Republicans have enabled and participated in:

      First Trump conspired with Russia who helped him win in 2016. Senate Republican led a 3rd investigation into the investigators released their final report in August 2020 proved Mueller’s findings and Intelligence. Russia hacked the 2016 election multiple contacts with the Trump campaign he benefitted from. Paul Manafort gave poll data to Russian intelligence officer Kilimnik to develop strategies to help Trump win in battleground states. Last week Kilimnik was sanctioned and admitted he received polling data from Paul Manafort and he gave it to Russian intelligence!!
      Roger Stone was in contact with wiklileaks to obtain hacked DNC data that hurt Clinton and Trump was fully aware of. Trump Jr and Kushner met Russian officials at Trump tower. George Pappadapolous testified his job was setting up meetings with the Kremlin. 8 convicted felons from the investigation!

      Then Trump is impeached for extorting Ukraine withheld vital military aid for an investigation into Biden because he was losing in the polls and lost the election! Again engaging in voting interference to win. Gordon Sondland Trump’s hand picked ambassador who donated a million dollars to him testified there was a quid pro quo and everybody was in on it.  He provided an email with Republican senior administration that received it. I watched 17 foreign service officials with decades of exemplary service corroborate the facts. John Bolton called it a drug deal that was going to blow up and it did and quit over it!
      Republicans could have gotten rid of him then, but they’re just as corrupt. Only one Republican Mitt Romney voted guilty on one count.

      Then Trump down plays the coronavirus calls it a hoax, it’ll disappear by last April like some kind of miracle? Inject disinfectant or bleach to get rid of it. No Defense Production Act, States in bidding wars on ventilators and PPE. No mandatory mask wearing or social distancing the virus spiked then in red states. He, Republicans are the superspreaders with 450,000 DEAD AND THE US IS THE RICHEST, POWERFUL COUNTRY IN THE WORLD EPIC FAIL!

      Then Trump puts corrupt crony DeJoy into the U.S PO who uninstalled sorting machines and slowed down the mail that a federal judge ordered him to reinstall the machines and all ballots had to be mailed out by the afternoon of November 3rd.
      Then Republicans uninstalled mail boxes and ballot drop off boxes in predominantly heavily populated Democratic cities and counties to block the vote.

      Then all of the lies and conspiracy theories on election fraud which he lost 62 court cases. Not 1 filed fraud or they’d perjure themselves and get disbarred WITHOUT EVIDENCE! Republican judges, courts, states, AG Barr DOJ, DHS, FBI INVESTIGATED AND NO WIDESPREAD FRAUD!

      Then the Texas lawsuit to the Supreme Court with HIS APPOINTED JUDGES where 240 Republicans and 19 states signed up to overthrow the swing states, not count Biden’s votes which got thrown out.

      Last ditch effort have Pence not count electors of the swing states Biden won during the certification which 140 Republicans objected to Biden’s certification and again SUBVERT THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE AND DEMOCRACY.
      TRUMP AND REPUBLICONS CALL THEIR RACIST, WHITE SUPREMACIST TERRORIST TO  STORM OUR SACRED NATION’S CAPITAL! TRUMP AND THOSE REPUBLICONS SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH SEDITION AND AIDING AND ABETING VIOLENCE. THEY DENIED AN INVESTIGATION INTO JANUARY 6TH BECAUSE IT’LL IMPLICATE THEM AND THEY’RE PASSING VOTER SUPPRESSION LAWS BECAUSE IT’LL IMPLICATE THEM AND TRUMP!
      https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/national-security/u-s-has-new-intel-manafort-friend-kilimnik-gave-trump-n1264371

    2. How about letting the FBI do their job instead of wasting money on nonsense investigations for no reason.

    3. @m_train1 Rethuglicons did 8 investigations on Bengazzi spent millions not even on American soil. They persecuted, interrogated Hillary Clinton FOR 10 HOURS TO HARM HER ELECTION PROSPECTS. THE OUTCOME NOTHING, OR WRONG DOING! Fact is Obama and Clinton submitted a proposal to UP the security budget in Bengazzi and REPUBLICONS VOTED NO!
      But we have an insurrection by Trump and Republicons’ white supremacist terrorists on our sacred nation’s capital which we’ve not even seen in the Civil War based on a BIG LIE?! To subvert the will of the people and democracy BECAUSE A CORRUPT POTUS AND PARTY REFUSE TO ACCEPT THEIR LOSS, THAT’S WHAT FASCISM IS. AND JUST LET IT GO? THE INSURRECTION CAUSED THE DEATH OF 5 PEOPLE. HUNDREDS OF COPS INJURED, SOME LOST THEIR EYES, FINGERS, TOES, SUFFERING FROM PTSD?! THE REPUBLICON PARTY BACK THE BLUE, BULLSHIT! THEY DON’T WANT AN INVESTIGATION BECAUSE IT’LL IMPLICATE THEM!

  5. The Republican Senators are now the epitome of the word “Hypocrite”. They live, work and breathe to serve at the pleasure of one man: a man no longer President. It’s sickening beyond sick.

  6. “America, America” Y’all what are we going to do, how do we fight for our country when our leaders won’t do the “Basic right thing!”

    1. Remember in 2011 when tens of thousands of Democrats surged on the Wisconsin Capitol building in Madison and physically occupied it for more than two weeks? We were told, “This is what democracy looks like.”
      Remember in 2016 when Obama was President and hundreds of BLM blocked interstate highways and violently accosted police (even killing several)? We were told, “To assign the actions of one person to an entire movement is dangerous and irresponsible.”
      Remember in 2018 during the Kavanaugh hearings when a mob of Democrats stormed the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, DC, and pounded their fists in rage on the door. We were told, “It’s understandable.”
      Remember this summer’s riots in major cities across the country when groups of Democrats marched in the streets, set buildings on fire, looted businesses, assaulted and even killed bystanders and police? We were told, “These are mostly peaceful protests.”
      Remember when Democrats seized several blocks of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in downtown Seattle, declaring it an autonomous zone? Remember the guns and deaths and utter destruction? We were told, “It’s a block party atmosphere.”
      Remember when a crazed mob gathered after the Republican National Convention and attacked Rand Paul, a sitting U.S. Senator? We were told, “No justice, no peace.”
      Remember how police were told to stand down, governors refused to call in the national guard, and Democrats paid bail for violent protesters who were arrested? We were told, “This is the only way oppressed people can be heard.”

  7. Imagine if someone committed murder and then was allowed to decide if there should be a trial .

  8. How the hell are we allowing criminals to control whether or not their crimes can be investigated?!?!?

    1. @334665eric 7788977 if by “stole” you mean ” won fair and square by getting more votes” then yeah.

  9. *People will be kicking themselves in few weeks if they miss the opportunity to buy and invest in crypto*

    1. Believe me he’s the best when it comes to Cryptocurrency trading, your profit is assured.

  10. In times like these I like to reflect on the words of Martin Luther King:
    “Sometimes a man needs to step outside for some fresh air to clear his head.” – MLK April 3, 1968

  11. Odd, you’d think they would want to prove it was just like a regular tourist visit, and the whole thing was blown out of proportion wouldn’t you?

  12. Nice video!! Very engaging from beginning to end. Nevertheless, businesses and investment are the easiest way to make money irrespective of which party makes it to the oval office.

    1. I lost £1200 carelessly trading on a platform then I was referred to Mr Ryley Bauer he recovered the loss and made an extra profit of £4600
