Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, February 23, 2021

Senior House lawmakers are battling over the contours of a panel inspired by the 9/11 Commission to investigate the deadly Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6, with Republicans demanding equal representation. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her Republican counterparts have already traded one offer each but still remain at odds over several issues including membership on the proposed commission, according to multiple sources familiar with the talks. Pelosi, who's vowed to quickly take up legislation creating the commission, proposed tilting the panel in favor of Democrats, with her party getting to pick seven of the members while Republican leaders choose four additional appointees. But Republicans are insisting on an equal split " each party gets to appoint five members " in their counteroffer, sources told POLITICO.

How about no you freaky bastards?

They only want a 5/5 split to obfuscate and block everything detrimental to dear leader.

I am sure they want ---------- like Gym Jordan, Farmer Nunes and -------- Gates on the panel along with other dear leader toadies to lie, block and sweep ---- under the rug.

You don't give terrorists equal time. They get no say on how they are prosecuted. Rotten bastards.

I'm curious as to why this is a "battle."

Democrats control the House, don't they?

Sure seems to me like they won this battle back in November.

Well you don't want to be seen as dictating. Honestly, I think the 7-4 thing is pretty fair considering who is in the minority and it will keep things moving rather than the stalling the GOP wants. I would go one further next time 7-4 and Dems pick the GOP members.

Sure, I would give some of them a few seats, but I would make them sign something that they would be acting in good faith. Because you know their only reason to be on the committee is to sabotage the committee. Same reason they get elected in the first place: To sabotage government.

What Republicans don't get is.

They were represented on 1/6.
