  1. Retrumplican’s so afraid of the Truth coming out is just hilarious! Can’t wait & got my Popcorn ready.

    1. @hopeless Trump has as much of a chance going to prison as corrupt cheating Joe and his drug addict corrupt son does . Just saying!

    2. @Hunter Roberts here we go sounds like Robert Mueller all over again is it going to be 2 years of this s*** to man you people just never quit do you LOL but in the end we know you like the taste of the poo poo because that’s what you eat every time

    3. @Billy Pardew No one believes in that outside 2/3 republicans. No credible evidence has been presented in court. Only crazyness. It may be more confortable to your feelings to act like a child and do not recognise that trump lost the elections, but it only makes America weaker. If that is the punishment you want to inflict to America for refusing the cult leader, than you are achieving that. Stay safe.

  2. Kevin McCarthy wanted a BIPARTISAN committee, and he got a BIPARTISAN committee. I am happy to have both Cheney and Kinzinger on this committee. I don’t agree with their politics, but I believe they both take their oath to the constitution seriously.

    1. @Billy Pardew Grandfather you found the laptop again. Now mom says you need to stop doing this, doctor says it’s bad for your heart. Come now Grandfather, it’s time for your medicine and nap. Then later we can go to the duck pond. Won’t that be nice!

    2. I agree. And on the other hand everyone who was there at the capital that day is it both physically and emotionally tied to this and shouldn’t be running the investigation if you really want it to be neutral. I don’t know if that means getting federal judges or others to do the investigation. Or the FBI or CIA or some other group. But of course many people don’t trust them.

      But the idea that you have your government and workplace attack, while you are there, and you get to do the investigation can arguably be considered a little bit biased. And people won’t want to hear that. I’m not saying they are going to do anything wrong, but normally you see people “taken off the case“ when they are involved in any way. From a logical point of view. But I have no real problem with the setup. Just a general point.

      Like if a cop has his house invaded in burglarized, he’s not allowed to investigate the case.

      That being said, I’m not sure how it works. If they will be investigating it or just directing others to investigate it. And having subpoena power.

    3. @hopeless pay close attention to Arizona and the 65% fraudulent mail-in votes their finding in Georgia why is it you want us to look when you want us to look but when we want you to look you act like there’s nothing there to see guess what there is LOL and it’s going to be Karma like you’ve never seen Karma

    4. @poopy pants no I was busy all last year Watching every single night is you and your buddies burned and looted our country to the sum of 3 billion dollars in Damages all while protesting police brutality and 70% of the businesses that you burn for black-owned now that’s a Democrat for you was you there? LOL

  3. “When duty calls I will always answer.” -Adam Kinzinger speaking about answering the call to protect our country.
    ‘When doodie calls I will always answer.’ -Matt Gaetz talking about answering Trump’s phone call.

  4. So that was the full supply of Republicans who have not completely surrendered to stroking the ego of the biggest loser in American political history. Now the work can begin.

    1. @Ghost So you’re pro-life, but also pro-sterilization… How about we just sterilize those with IQs below 90, sadly that’d take out your whole political party.

    2. @Spencer spencer Yes I know some have died but very very few and of course they never report if they were obese, diabetic or had other problems. That’s why I said “basically” kids are immune and they are. Problem is, they are the only ones left as candidates for the jab. Follow the science as the lefties like to say. Leave children alone.

  5. Do you realise if mccarthy had not thrown a diaper laden tantrum their would be 5 or 4 republicans on the committee looking for the truth, as is we now have 2 strong Republicans who are putting country over party. We now have some sense of sanity to expose only the truth.

    1. Study: Recovered COVID-19 Patients Possess Robust Immunity To Virus
      JULY 26, 2021 By Shawn Fleetwood
      A newly released study conducted by Emory University suggests recovered COVID-19 patients possess long-term immunity to the respiratory virus months after infection.

      Published in Cell Reports Medicine, the comprehensive study analyzed 254 individuals with mostly mild to moderate symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection over an eight-month period and found that patients possessed “durable broad-based immune responses” to the virus after recovering from an infection.

    2. @J W Trump’s the RINO. He was a pro-choice democrat who donated to Hillary. Then he realised the Dems wouldn’t fall for his BS, and that’s when he became a Republican. I’m willing to bet Liz Cheyney has never voted Democrat in her life.

    3. @Slutty Panda Eyes He used to be a dem and purely for his businesses but, changed and based on what he learned, experienced and now understands, I’ll bet he will never make that mistake again..

    4. @Slutty Panda Eyes Trump also donated to Harris , and Schumer and Bill Clinton …..among others

    5. @J W Two things changed Trump into a republican.
      1. The Dems wouldn’t fall for his BS.
      2. A black man became president.

  6. All of the people in Congress swore that same oath but unfortunately, there are a bunch of them that are not honoring that oath. Even one person not honoring that oath is a detriment to our Democratic Republic and society as a whole. Something needs to be done sooner than later in my humble opinion.

    1. I consider anyone in congress who voted against certifying what they knew was a free and fair election to be a TRAITOR to this country.

    2. Did they honor their oath when after 18 seconds when Donald Trump was sworn in they screamed resist obstruct and impeach? Just 18 seconds in. Did the communist Democrats honor their oath in 2016? I’ll wait

    3. Professor Dave Clements & Captain Seth Keshel have data that proves 5 Senate seats belong to Republicans.

  7. McCarthy doesn’t want people that tell the truth! He wants his circus clowns!! Good pick for the committee!!

    1. @Steve Austin hahahaha yes sure no crimes were commited where were you in jupiter , saturn or mars

    2. @Humberto Hernandez name the crimes that were committed on January 6? The only charges I’m seeing are breaking and entering. Where are the insurrection charges? I’ll wait. Meanwhile you communist Democrats continue to riot loot crime is up 1000% in all of your Democrat cities. Nothing to see there though is there?

    3. @Humberto Hernandez Study: Recovered COVID-19 Patients Possess Robust Immunity To Virus

    4. @Steve Austin they hit officers witg every weapon they had , they also invaded a sacred place and finally they destryed privated properties they were’ t invited and they weren’ t tourists and we saw extremists among them , that was an insurrection that was not a peaceful protest , we still remember the first words from mcconnell and mccarthy blaming trump from instigating the crowd , nice debating with you I have to work 7 days a week to make my living you have a good day now, please see the videos and not from fox news

    5. @Steve Austin eyes were gouged out. Limbs and digits were broken. Cops were assaulted, some seriously. Congressional documents and property were stolen. Of course crimes were committed.

      Thankfully we now have a committee that will get to the bottom of all it and inform the people.

      Nobody with any kind of brain is going to listen to anything that McCarthy has to say because we’ve already watched him pivot on this repeatedly, like a ballerina…

    1. @Christopher Thomas With the current lot Jim Jones wouldn’t even have to hide the cyanide in Kool–Aid.

    2. Anybody that opposes Donald Trump is considered normal to the communist Democrat party. LOL
      Besides all of the swamp Republicans know they are going to lose to the Trump candidates in the midterm primaries. This is their last hurrah before they join the communist Democrat party who will welcome them with open arms

      The drunk Nancy is picking the handful of swamp Republicans who are in bed with a Communist Democrat Party. Nothing surprising. But what does it matter? No crimes were committed and this is just a waste of taxpayer money just like the communist Democrats Russia collusion witchhunt which cost millions and millions and millions of dollars. And amounted to a waste of money just like the sham communist Democrat impeachment.

    3. @Fabi Grossi let me do better than that, let me show you proof that you are a communist. Make sure you read to the end, because your jaw is going to be hanging down with no answer.

      Are today’s Democrats Communists?
      FACT CHECK-
      The 1963 communist goals and the Democratic Party of today:

      Many, if not all of these goals, are supported today by the Democratic Party as they often publicly support these goals. Bernie Sanders, Obama, Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, Kamala Harris and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez even some even call themselves ‘Democratic socialists.’
      A Fancy word for ‘Communists’

      Nikita Khrushchev once stated, “America will fall without ever firing a shot. You cannot expect Americans to choose communism over capitalism, but you can feed them small doses of socialism until they awaken one day and find they have communism.”

      I would like to share a few with you and hopefully you will decide for yourself which political party supports these ideas –

      For anyone who wants to read all of them, a simple internet search of 1963 communist goals will deliver the list in its entirety.

      7. Grant recognition of Communist China to the United Nations.

      11. Promote the United Nations as the only hope for mankind.
      15. Capture one or both political parties in the USA.
      17. Get control of the schools and use them as transmission belts for communist and socialist propaganda.
      19. Use student riots to foment public protests.
      20. Infiltrate the press.
      21. Gain control of radio, TV and motion pictures.
      25. Break down cultural standards of morality.
      27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible.
      28. Eliminate prayer and any religious expression in schools.

      29. Discredit the American Constitution.
      30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers.
      31. Belittle all forms of American history.
      35. Discredit and dismantle the FBI.
      36. Infiltrate and gain control of unions.
      38. Transfer powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders.
      40. Discredit the family; promote easy divorce.
      41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of their parents.
      42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of American culture and history.

  8. It’s incredible to think that mccarthy decided to boycott the joint committee and then with taxpayer money create a bogus committee just to muddy the water! What a rotten low -down despicable person!

    1. Honestly. Would ANY normal sane person (aside from Trumplicans) believe ANYTHING that comes out of McCarthy’s mouth? He has proven himself to be an expert Bullsh1tter, procrastinator, outright Liar and Trump lickspittle.

  9. McCarty and McConnell want to call foul but they removed themselves from the equation. McCarthy wanting to do his own investigation is such a joke. No power to call people and anyone who goes and talks to them but not the actual committee is guilty of something to do with the insurrection.

    1. He didn’t remove himself from the equation, Pelosi removed him. McCarthy’s investigation is as partisan as Pelosi’s.

    2. @Gregg Yes he did when him and mcconnell didn’t vote on the agreement for a bi-partisans committee that had already been agreed to.

  10. When are people going to get it through their thick skull that this isn’t a red/blue issue. It happened, it was ugly and the people involved need to be dealt with

    1. @Random Internet User this whole post is talking about jan 6th..I didnt understand that wasnt clear to you..

    2. @J W so when did they form a bipartisan investigation? Where’s the senate report?

      Also the expression is “stack the cards” not “attack the cards”, but that’s all water under the fridge, the whole kitten caboodle.

    3. @Spencer spencer it was done shortly after the incident..it was bipartisan and there was a report which, was made public in june..it basically said that President Trump was not responsible and placed the blame on police and security..
      Like I said, this is a scam..This isn’t about the truth..this is about abusing their power to obtain a result they were not happy with..

    4. @J W okay then give me a link to the report. This isn’t rocket appliances okay?

      But just to clear things up for you the only thing they investigated was security concerns. They did not investigate the cause of the violence, nor Trump, or other Republicans involvement. The Republicans then rejected looking into it further.

  11. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had to make an Adult Decision in an environment of Hyperactive Mischievous Juvenile Republican Extremist.

  12. For those who do not know, a lot of Kinzinger’s family members have excommunicated with him to side with Trump. Everything he & Cheney has done in regards to 1/6/21 has been exemplary & truly patriotic in light of every other RepubliCON.

    1. But then they go and vote Republican. That just empowers the radicals that have taken over the Republican party if they still get the votes to get in to power and to stay in power. So I suggest that any rational Republican to withhold their vote for these extremists in their party all the way down the line on the ticket. At least for the next couple of election cycles until they can gain back control of their party. Otherwise they are just as complicit as the worst in that party.

    2. “Yankee girl 5460” = obviously not American
      What “judas” are you talking about and if it’s “there” where exactly is that? Unless you ment they are… which shows you are not smarter then anyone and no one should take your advice because you are so uneducated you are illiterate.

  13. How the GQP can ignore this travesty, and their conservative news outlets trying to sweep facts under the rug?. The ” law and order party” has dropped the ball. Justice is all this commission should be striving for.

  14. McCarthy is too lazy to actually put together a committee. Or even if he does they are too busy screaming into the ether to actually get anything done.

  15. Adam is a stand-up guy. He has the courage,decency and sanity so sorely lacking in the GOP. He also is leading the push in our being responsible for rescuing our Afghan interpreters. Bravo.
