Even though the FBI had determined that President Trump had nothing to do with what happened on January 6th and that the whole thing was not organized by any Trump supporters, Nancy Pelosi thinks she knows better than they do and can do their job better.
If anything, the only thing organized about that day was the police effort to allow them inside, Antifa’s effort to start the chaos, and the Democrats’ effort in pushing the propaganda that they did.
Now that this committee has been formed and even had some time to listen to testimonies of carefully selected people from that day, one person on that committee was just appointed a leadership role.
First, before I tell you who this individual was, I need you to realize who is on this committee.
Adam Schiff…a Democrat
Zoe Lofgren…a Democrat
Jamie Raskin…a Democrat
Pete Aguilar…a Democrat
Stephanie Murphy…a Democrat
Elaine Luria…a Democrat
Bennie Thompson…a Democrat
Then there are the two “Republicans” Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
So there aren’t a lot of members on the committee, but guess who Pelosi decided to tap to lead the committee? Liz Cheney.
National Review reported,
“Representative Cheney has demonstrated again and again her commitment to getting answers about January 6th, ensuring accountability, and doing whatever it takes to protect democracy for the American people,” Thompson said in a statement. “Her leadership and insights have shaped the early work of the Select Committee, and this appointment underscores the bipartisan nature of this effort.”
After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two GOP picks for the commission, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy pulled the rest of the Republicans, criticizing it as a partisan project and vowing to lead a separate probe independent from the Democrats. Pelosi subsequently asked Cheney and anti-Trump Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger to serve on the panel.
You’ve got to think about this from a logical perspective…what is Pelosi’s game here? Well, it’s pretty obvious to me. She’s wanting there to be some “conclusive” evidence that President Trump caused the riot and all that mess and be able to say, “Oh, and look who was heading this committee…a Republican. A member of your own party.”
The thing is, Cheney is nothing but a RINO and everyone knows it. You know it, I know it, the rest of the GOP knows it, and most importantly, Nancy Pelosi knows it. Of all the people she could have appointed, she strategically appointed the Republican over the obvious choice of Adam Schiff here.
And don’t get confused here. You may read and hear that Bennie Thompson is the one who chose Cheney, but if you think Pelosi wasn’t behind this call, you’re only fooling yourself.
