On Friday, six Republican Senate traitors broke ranks with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and voted for legislation that would create a 9/11-style commission to investigate the January 6 riot at the US Capitol. They voted for the demise of the Republican Party because that is exactly what the Democrats wanted to do with the commission.
The final vote for the witch hunt commission was 54 – 35, which luckily fell short of the 60 votes needed to break a filibuster by Republicans.
The senators who voted for their own demise are as follows:
- Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
- Rob Portman (R-OH)
- Ben Sasse (R-NE)
- Bill Cassidy (R-LA)
- Mitt Romney (R-UT)
- Susan Collins (R-ME)
Another RINO Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) missed the vote because he had a prior family commitment, but he said he would have voted Yes, according to what his spokesman told NBC News. Toomey is retiring so his true RINO self has been coming out all year.
Those six RINOS need to be primaried out because they are useless to the Republican Party and the country.
The bill was negotiated by House Homeland Security Chairman Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and ranking member Representative John Katko (R-NY), passed in the House last week by a vote of 252-175. Kalko was one of the 10 Republican traitors who joined with Democrats to impeach President Trump for inciting the January 6 riot when he uttered the words “we will march peacefully and patriotically.” It has been said that Katko has the brain of a very intelligent man. I hear he keeps it in a jar on his desk. But I digress.
The agreement would have created the commission with 5 members from each party, meaning the guy who voted to impeach Trump would pick the five Republicans. And the Democrats want to say the commission would be bipartisan. #EyeRoll
The commission would have had the power to issue subpoenas under an arrangement that both the Democratic chair and the Republican vice-chair or a majority of the committee’s members. Here’s how the votes would go. Every Democrat would vote yes for every subpoena and all they would need is one Trump-hating Republican to jump ship and side with the Democrats.
We reported that House minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) came out against the commission because of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bad faith negotiations where she lied to media claiming she had already sent a counter-proposal to the House GOP when she did not. It took several weeks after her statement for McCarthy to receive it.
McCarthy said the commission would be “duplicative” and “potentially counterproductive” because there are already ongoing investigations into what took place on January 6 at the Capitol building and he pointed out that there are criminal investigations already being done by US law enforcement. But once you understand that the Democrats do not want this Commission to get to the bottom of what happened on January 6, but rather, to be able to trash Republicans publicly all the way until the 2022 midterm elections, it all makes sense.
Senator McConnell (R-KY) agreed with McCarthy’s apprehensions, calling it a “purely political exercise.”
Democrats and the fake news media vilified Republicans for opposing the creation of the commission, claiming they want to cover-up what happened on January 6 out of loyalty to Trump.
First of all, who doesn’t know what took place on January 6? Well, a lot of people can’t get answers to a lot of questions because the Democrats will not allow law enforcement to give up any information showing what actually happened. They won’t even give up the name of the officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed Air Force veteran who posed a threat to no one when she was murdered?
We all watched in horror as rioters tried to get into the building, but there are also tons of videos that show Capitol police opening up barriers and opening doors allowing people to walk into the Capitol building. How can you claim people were trespassing when law enforcement that is there to protect the building allowed them inside? Also, how come the Serjeant-at-Arms at the Capitol building refused to accept National Guard help when President Trump offered them to help? The Serjeant-at-Arms answers to one person: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

A big problem with the Commission for Republicans is that they know that the Democrats who would control it would never allow those types of questions to be asked. The entire thing would be focused against Republicans for the purposes of hurting them in 2022, but especially Trump to try to stop him from running again in 2024.
