Democrats only hold a razor-thin majority in Congress.
This leaves little room for making mistakes.
And Nancy Pelosi just made one move that could end up costing Democrats their majority in 2022.
Democrats are looking for any way they can find to help them maintain their majorities in Congress during the 2022 midterm elections.
And right now, it appears the Democrats believe the best way to achieve this goal is by smearing Republicans as the Party of insurrection and sedition.
That’s why Nancy Pelosi is planning to pick her own January 6 select committee to “investigate” the events that day.
Pelosi’s planned kangaroo court was reported by CNN:
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi plans to appoint a select committee to investigate the deadly January 6 attack on the US Capitol after Senate Republicans blocked the creation of an independent commission to probe the insurrection, according to two sources familiar with the matter.”
Pelosi announced Tuesday evening to the House’s Steering and Policy Committee that she will create a select committee, the sources said. She told Democrats the January 6 inquiry will be a “pursuit of truth” investigation, according to one source who heard her remarks.
One of the sources said Pelosi indicated she believes a regular standing committee of several dozen members just would not work, and notes the House has already given the Senate several weeks to get a bill on an independent commission passed and that has not happened.
Of course, Democrats are hoping that a report blaming Trump and other Republicans for the violence that occurred on January 6 will provide a template for Democrat candidates nationwide to run attack ads.
It’s clear they intend to falsely blame Trump and Republicans for the entire debacle.
But this could backfire for Pelosi as recent news suggests the FBI had advance knowledge of and possibly had its informants plan and participate in the January 6 events.
Now, many Americans are wanting to know more about what the FBI knew in advance of the event, what it did with that knowledge and whether or not they had informants on the ground on January 6.
Unfortunately, Pelosi’s “select committee” will ignore those questions, instead operating as a politically motivated show trial designed to make Republicans look violent ahead of the 2022 midterms.
