The Commission On January 6 Has To Be Bipartisan, Says Congresswoman


    1. Exactly, as the Republicans want to include investigating what happened in the Summer so that they can “investigate the left” kind of implies that they know that investigating the January 6th insurrection is not going to find anyone from the left involved. SMH!

    2. @Borvo exactly. I thought they said it was Antifa who did it. So they’re saying we needed to investigate Antifa but not this action by them. The other ones should be enough.

    3. It’s already being investigated by the DOJ!!! Why do they need a “commission” and spend millions of taxpayer dollars to investigate a bunch of half drunk idiots on Jan 6th? Politicians are politicians, they aren’t investigators even though the left thinks they are. You people are grasping at straws hoping that politicians on the right are somehow involved in this just to say “I told you the right was corrupt”. GROW UP PEOPLE!!!

  1. Doesn’t have to be a bipartisan commission. Truth and facts aren’t partisan. The GOP is doing everything they can to discredit, delay or destroy the truth of their complicity.

    1. Worse than that, they are leaving the door open for more acts of terrorism and insurrection. There are extremist on both sides who burn this country down before seeing the other side victorious. That is a terrifying thought now that we know it’s okay with politicians.

    2. GOP base will refuse to accept GOP leadership responsibility for 1/6 no matter whether it is bipartisan or not…

    1. same thing with the clintons god i wished we had obama back, why doesnt he run in 2024 is what i dont understand

    2. Too frickin’ late! Their actions show them clearly for the traitors they are. They are very patriotic, to the Confederate States of America.

    3. @Nikolai Obama can’t run again he seved two terms. The constitution forbids any president serving more than two terms.

    4. @robert hollingsworth That’s because of FDR. He did so much for the American people they voted him in four times. Pulled us out of the great depression lead us through WW2 created social security and did it all with polio or something. We need leaders like that not trumpists who bend the knee.

  2. Yes, that’s what happens in every criminal investigation, suspects are fully involved….

    1. There needs to be a commission that investigate the violent left wing riots of 2020. They burned gov buildings. They burned businesses. They killed 24 people. They setup a Soviet autonomous zone in Seattle.
      THIS IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF INSURRECTION. Cant help but wonder if MSNBC helped sponsor it.

    1. @Borvo The Republicans newest defense is that no intelligent person would actually believe the stuff they are saying.
      Fox had to actually admit that with Tucker.

      I love how the GOP is saying Trumps words did not start the insurrection.
      They are saying Trumps speech did not move any of his followers.
      The GOP is saying that when he said lets march down there and stop the steal –
      they are saying his supporters would never have actually taken him seriously.

    2. Because it will be another dishonest “investigation” by socialist democrats. They’ll leak what they want to the fake news and you libs will go screaming with your hair on fire. It’s how propaganda works.

    3. Trump Needs to pay the bills for the billions of tax dollars spent on Jan 6 and he should be charged with insurrection.

      He caused this with lie upon lie and gullible people listen to him. Pick your crimes he caused. Conspiracy; Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers Using a Dangerous Weapon; Obstruction of Law Enforcement During Civil Disorder and Aiding and Abetting; Theft of government property; Civil Disorder; Obstruction of an Official Proceeding and Aiding and Abetting; Destruction of Government Property and Aiding and Abetting; Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds; Tampering with DocStauments or Proceedings, Civil Disorder; Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers Using a Dangerous Weapon; Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds with a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon; Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds with a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon; Engaging in Physical Violence in a Restricted Building or Grounds with a Deadly or Dangerous Weapon; Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building; Act of Physical Violence in the Capitol Grounds or Buildings…

    4. @Rod lol ,, you wrote words ! They don’t make any sense but good for you 😎👍 !

    5. @Rod “I never worked with Russia” Said the King of Lies, and his people believed him, because the propagandists refused to tell them the truth.

      “It will disappear, like magic” Exalted the Dictator of Deception, and his people believed him, for they had abandoned reality.

      “The election was stolen” Decried the Sultan of swindling, and his rubes extolled his wisdom, because their talking heads praised dear leaders words.


      Yes, I believe you would know all about propaganda, having spread it yourself. We do have eyes, you know. We don’t need to listen to people to understand what happens. You should try opening yours sometime. You would be shocked by what you see.

  3. Why does it have to be bipartisan???
    Especially since the Republicans are complicit up to their treasonous eyeballs!!! The last thing those traitors want is for the truth to get out!!!

    1. @Bill Pool you misunderstood me. You asked why does it have to be bipartisan. I said conspiracy theories. If Republicans aren’t involved in choosing the investigators they will claim that the results are due to a conspiracy against them. They’ll still claim that even if they choose every person because they can never accept responsibility but not as much as if they had no say.

    2. @Alaina Buchholtz Gohmert was speeding time with the guys who planned it. They were bragging about him and other Republicans being with them publicly. That’s just a fact. If that’s something you would on this channel and not on the channels would like it’s not because one is lying about those facts. It’s because the others are hiding the facts. When your idea of truth is based on whether or not right wing media is reporting it makes it really hard to indirectly lie to you by simply not reporting on something. Or how Tucker and Hannity does it. Introduce a topic using the facts but the rest of the time they’re talking about it without sources and nothing to back it up just pure conjecture and people take it as true. “Why is x happening?” *shows x happening*. “Well that’s because the left hates freedom.” *doesn’t show anything to explain why that’s the reason x happened.*

    3. @Borvo trumpers use the constitution the way they use the bible. They can interpret it to mean anything they want.

    4. @Alaina Buchholtz Commi is from propaganda pushed out during the cold war, to get americans to hate russians. Of all the political systems, you feel that capitalism is way more moral than communism? Great for you. News flash, you didn’t pick the political system you were born into and neither did a lot of people born into communist systems. Communal means sharing between all, you like everyman for himself as greedy as possible? Great for you. but the idea you’ve learned that just saying the word commie means like you’ve really exposed someone, just means your brainwashed beyond belief.

    5. @Junie Jake Yeah cuz corona virus is harmless just like the flu, so it makes no sense to shut down to try to avoid having millions of people die. That’s just crazy. Thank goodness trump was there to steer us through it and save the economy. Oh wait, no he just lied everyday, everything still shut down, all the people died and the economy got crushed under his presidency. wow. And now obama, or biden, or the next dem president has to rebuild everything, till the next repub president starts a new war, or mismanages another pandemic, and crashes us again with their greed and “free markets”.

  4. If I was a criminal that committed a crime, I wouldn’t want to be investigated either.

  5. Republicans:”This needs to be bipartisan! These are our demands!”
    Democrats: “Ok. Those are acceptable terms. Let’s do it.”
    Republicans: ”oh. Uh…no”
    Democrats: “That’s what we thought.”

  6. The GOP has taken on Trump’s personality and tactics. There is almost no integrity to be found now in that vile party.

  7. The person that said it looked like a normal tourism event should have immediately lost their job.

    1. Yeah the fact that that guy is a real person, who people vote for, and he tries to say that was just like a tourist day, that’s so insane to me. Most of the republican base will believe absolutely anything they are told. I don’t get it.

  8. “How can we have an impartial jury if it doesn’t include the co-conspirators of the defendant?”

    1. Yes, bipartisan, presumably for the same reason juries are required by law to be 50% criminal.

    2. @june bug,
      The people who know nothing about law attacked the Capitol on Jan 6th in the name of a traitor.

  9. when you cant get the criminals to the actual trial, you dont just stop the investigation and the charges.

  10. *Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you’ll be ecstatic with the decision you made today*

    1. So, the Treasonous Republicans want us to get a dog from Krypton?
      I thought the discussion was about the reality-challenged Clowns on the right? Did i miss a meeting again?

  11. Strangely the investigators of the bank robbery who actually took part in it would have us believe that no robbery ever happened. Go figure!

  12. This is needed to protect the nation for this never to happen again so those against this WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY AFRAID OF !!

  13. Voters will never forget January 6th, 2021 whether there is a commission to investigate it or not. The GQP will be held to full account at the ballot box during the midterms and ALL future elections.
