House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has come out against a bipartisan committee to investigate the Capitol insurrection, a proposal drafted by one of his GOP colleagues, as Republicans press for a broader investigation that includes investigating Black Lives Matter protests.

A must read thread for all Democrats. Don't let the fact that this is written by Rick Wilson put you off. Read, read, read and wake the f--- up:

1/ Of *course* Qevin McCarthy opposes a bipartisan January 6th Commission.

If the Democrats have the stones to pull it off -- an open question, TBH -- it will make Benghazi look like a sewing circle.

The shame and dishonesty that an ambitious person will clothe themselves in all in the pursuit of power. It is a sickness. There is no other rational explanation.

Put him on the stand for 12 hours a day for a week.

Eventually he'll slip up - just like Hillary didn't.

How come no right wingers talk about Benghazi anymore?!?!?

The GOP has adopted a forget it ever happened mentality. They want to move on and act like a sitting US President didn't attempt to overthrow the US Government.

Q must have tweeted coded instructions to Mad Mikey.

And he undermined his own Members who had negotiated a balanced, bipartisan Commission and Rules.

The GOP wants it to happen again.

Because it might work out better for them next time.

To date, there have been zero negative consequences for the GOP.

So there's literally no downside for the next Jan 6. Only upside.

Qevin and the GQP also want to probe last summer's George Floyd demonstrations along with 1/6. They know that an honest look at 1/6 will point the finger directly at Dotard and the GQP. They want the commission to waste their time chasing issues that don't exist. The George Floyd protests were overwhelmingly peaceful, and much of the violence was committed by or encouraged by far Reich agents provocateur. Funny, why didn't the 911 Commission also look into the Oklahoma City bombing, the Centennial Olympic Park bombing and the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing? Because one of our two political parties wasn't trying to whitewash the event.

There are two issues here: first, with their continued approval of a traitor to this country as their poster boy, the GQP demonstrates their support for Dotard's ongoing coup; secondly, Qevin is afraid that he'll be subpoenaed to testify under oath which means he'll have to tell the truth about his conversation with Orange Adolf, because others heard what was said, and he told others the details of the conversation while hiding from the insurrectionists, that won't sit well with Combover Quisling because it's off message and could open the fat orange pustule up to further legal problems.

Just ordinary tourists my arse:

In testimony tomorrow - Architect of the US Capitol will tell US House panel his employees (working on Inaugural platform) sought shelter inside Capitol as mob arrived on Jan 6

"Shockingly.. hard work was destroyed", platform wrecked, sound system destroyed, lanterns ripped out"

Don't believe the gaslighting.

This is what the so-called "tourist visit" did to my office:

Shorter version of Rick Wilson cited in #2 and by another NeverTrumper:

Joe Walsh

If this Republican Party controls the House in 2024, and a Democrat is elected President in 2024, there's no way these House Republicans will certify the election results.

Wake up America.

McCarthy was all about BENGHAZI!!!! investigations. Now he's opposed to investigating the attempted overthrow of American democracy?

What a traitorous twerp.

Of course he has to reject any investigation.

They will be investigating him.

Who wants to approve an investigation that's gonna expose your own duplicity and involvement in supporting an insurrection and lying cheating fascist wanna be dictator?

7/ Even now, too many think policy will save them. "But our climate plan" or "but our control gun plan" or "but our daycare plan" isn't politics. It's ------------.

The bad guys are willing to send people to kill you and you respond with a white paper? GTFO.

This is why the Democrats should stop negotiation over a January 6th commission and just freaking DO it.

Do you think some kind of bipartisan comity and goodwill will be lost somehow? THEY SENT PEOPLE TO KILL YOU. Get a --------- grip.

Play offense. Drag them.

McCarthy doubtless thinks of himself as "a man in full," as Tom Wolfe put it. But he is revealed as just another unprincipled gasbag who will probably never get that coveted prize which has caused him to reveal himself for what he is: the speakership. My guess is, one of his own "allies" will knife him (politically - although, considering the crowd he's running with, quien sabe?) before that ever happens.
