The heading on this clip is a little misleading, but in it Nancy says that she plans to speak with Kinzinger & other Republicans about being on the 1/6 commission.

Essentially, it looks to me like she is being the adult in the room & prepared to invite Republicans onto the committee. It sounds to me like it will now come down to whether Kinzinger & whoever else she invites are prepared to serve regardless of the threats and/or scare tactics used by McCarthy/Trump. (Possibly being stripped of their spots on other committees as McCarthy threatened to do earlier, etc.) Earlier, I read another name that was being suggested, which belonged to a former Congressman that had some expertise which might prove useful. I forget the name & where I read it. Feel like the suggestion was that he would have a different type of role as he wasn't a sitting Congress member. (But that might be a way of getting around the no-more-committees threat). Anyway, we'll see who steps up.

What’s most notable is that they already made up their minds with the facts that were uncovered before. That trump did it. And they voted to impeach trump for doing it.

Does he even know what a router is? It is like a kid who has learned a new word and he has to keep repeating it.
Exactly what I was thinking. Actually, what I was thinking is that at that moment watching that clip I thought I was looking at a carnival barker. Loud, repetitive, and all BS. It's painful to watch.

I wonder if the Committee will call any of the Representatives believed to have been involved in the insurrection.

:watch:
One would hope so. However, when Congress was investigating earlier issues of the Former Guy..many refused to appear despite subpoenas and were never punished. I have few hopes the people involved will cooperate.

I think it's a different situation here, inasmuch as the House has the sole Constitutional authority to discipline and expel its own members.

Thought this was an appropriate place to post this. Yeah for Montana Man giving it to F*cker Carlson.


Not sure if anyone has posted the Rand Paul clip with Alexis Toon.

Very interesting moment when police officer who was testifying said everyone should go to trumps house and do his house what his supporters did to capitol

"we should all go to his house and do the same thing to him”

Are you taking that literally? No problem with anyone thinking that Trump deserved a taste of his own medicine.

How can you watch that footage and not be upset, distressed and angry? That is disgusting. No-one should have their lives put at risk by a bunch of cultists who were influenced by a giant baby who didn't get his own way.

That hearing was really disturbing. What all of those officers experienced, I can't imagine. Just horrific, all of it. Just watching from my vantage point (and I may be totally wrong) it seems as if you guys don't get it together down there, your beautiful country is f*cked.

The only way we'll get it together is if people get out and vote no matter how many obstacles are thrown in their way and vote from the bottom up. School boards, local city councils, state legislatures, governors, and then Congress. If Democrats stay home in 2022, it's over for democracy in the US. Biden has to have a Democratic house and a 50-50 margin in the Senate. We need to remove state legislators in states like Texas. It can happen. The votes are there, but people have to stand up and vote. Then they can remove the barriers to democracy that are being thrown up.

Trump was already impeached. Not sure what the endgame here is.
