Via TTN:

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vetoed two House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy’s nominees to serve on the select Jan. 6 committee he promptly pulled the other reaming Republicans from participating. The showdown happened quickly as McCarthy made his decision to yank the remaining nominees less than an hour after Pelosi announced she vetoed Reps. Jim Banks and Jim Jordan’s nominations.

However, Rep. McCarthy isn’t completely abandoning the Republican Party the plan to further investigate the events surrounding the Capitol riot on Jan. 6th. Instead, the House Republican leader said the party will form its own commission instead of bending to the will of the Democrats.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“We will run our own investigation,” McCarthy said Wednesday, in a hastily called news conference. “Why was the Capitol so ill-prepared for that day when they knew on Dec. 14 they had a problem? And what have we done to make sure that never happens again?”

He railed against Pelosi for creating a “sham process” and refusing to seat Republican members on a committee, a line not previously crossed in the House.

“House Democrats must answer this question: Why are you allowing a lame-duck speaker to destroy this institution?” McCarthy said, referencing Pelosi’s pledge not to seek the speakership again after the end of her term, or foreshadowing Republicans winning back the House in 2022.

Rep. Jim Banks slammed Pelosi for rejecting his nomination to the 13-person committee

Pelosi “knew we would fight back against their political games, and that’s why she didn’t want us to participate in this committee,” Banks said. “It just goes to show this is entirely a political exercise on her part. It’s a shame. The American people deserve better.”

Republicans have called Pelosi out for showing her hand and making it obvious that the committee is a partisan push.

Rep. Banks, who McCarthy selected as the lead Republican on the panel alluded to future plans by the Republican party to form its own exploratory committee.

In a press conference, Rep. Jordan slammed Pelosi’s partisan scheme.

Honestly with all the communists getting violent in our streets last year we definitely need some McCarthyism . I just don’t know if this McCarthy is the one we need.

The top question in any investigation needs to be, WHAT was PIGLOSI’s involvement in Jan 6. Everyone with a bratn knows she was the leader.

Form a committee to eliminate Pelosi. Have a special vote. She thinks she runs country, country should decide not just crack head Californians.

What a little “birdie” told me was the following: expose the V.P.Harris as incompetent (really easy job as all she does is laugh, coy like a hooker) and then use the 25th to sent ole joe to the nut farm for dementia—then TA_DA—old Nancy is at the helm===GOD forbid; however , I do see her salivating.

Great IDEA, screw that old witch Nancy Pelosi as she just wants a kangaroo Court—a Stalin style SHOW TRIAL—an old marxist ploy.

McCarty appointed 2 Patriots and 3 Rinos to the committee. We need better than this! McCarthy is just another establishment shill!

When the Republicans do their own investigation, it should include a detailed look into how the accused “armed insurrectionists” are being treated by the “justice” system and be sure any trials are done with juries from other than those from heavily skewed Washington, D.C.

The real question is, is McCarthy really that much better than Pelosi? Politicians have always been crooks, but never in the nation’s history have they been as anti American as today. The American people are still good (most of them) but they will have to do MUCH better with the people they elect.
