Even though he’s been out of office for several months, the Democrats are still determined to destroy Donald Trump.
One of the ways they’re going after Trump is by trying to blame him for the January 6 events at the Capitol.
But Mitch McConnell ruined Nancy Pelosi’s day when he used this one word to describe her scheme to cancel Trump.
Nancy Pelosi recently rammed a proposal through the House that would create a commission to “investigate” the January 6 events at the Capitol.
Pelosi was expecting Senate Republicans to go along with her commission, which would allow the Democrats to weaponize the report and use it against Republicans in 2022.
If Republicans played along with creating the commission, Pelosi thought, then they couldn’t try to brush the report off as another partisan witch hunt.
However, Mitch McConnell ruined Nancy Pelosi’s plans by coming out in strong opposition to the proposal, calling it “laughable” at best.
“House Democrats have handled this proposal in partisan bad faith going right back to the beginning. From initially offering a laughable starting point to continuing to insist on various features under the hood that are designed to centralize control over the commission’s process and its conclusions in Democratic hands,” McConnell stated.
McConnell added that a Congressional commission would also duplicate the work being done by law enforcement.
“It’s not at all clear what new facts or additional investigation yet another commission could actually lay on top of existing efforts by law enforcement and Congress,” McConnell added.
Not only did House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell come out in opposition to the commission, but even moderate Republicans like South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds also opposes Pelosi’s commission.
“We’ve had a chance to hear from House leadership about what they saw in the bill. It doesn’t appear right now that they believe that it is bipartisan in nature, which to me is extremely disappointing,” Rounds stated. “The way that the bill is written right now, I would feel compelled to vote against it.”
Furthermore, liberal, anti-Trump Republicans like Mitt Romney and Susan Collins are even against Pelosi’s commission, which crushes any hope of Democrats creating a weaponized report to use against Republicans in 2022.
Nancy Pelosi was betting on Republicans bending the knee to the Leftist outrage mob over what took place on January 6.
But it looks like she will lose that bet.
