Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has pulled all five of his picks for the January 6th Commission as Pelosi refuses to allow Reps Jim Jordan and Jim Banks from serving on the committee.
It is not hard to figure out what Pelosi’s motivation is. She doesn’t want to get her ass kicked. Both Jordan and banks have proved themselves to be more than a match for any Democrat.
Pelosi still claims that the commission is bipartisan even though there is not a single conservative on the committee.
The closest thing they have to Republican is Liz Cheney. And anyone who thinks she is close to being a Republican is a mighty poor judge of distance.
Pelosi might have been scared off by Banks who said he would expose the lack of security at the Capitol. Trump had offered Pelosi 10,000 National Guard Troops, which she turned down.
Banks also suggested that he would bring up the antifa and BLM riots that took place all last summer. That is something else Pelosi fears.
Polling shows the Democrats’ Defund the Police campaign is an extremely unpopular one. That is why they tried to blame Republicans for the movement to defund the police. People didn’t buy it and it will haunt them during the 2022 election.

McCarthy said in a statement:

“This represents an egregious abuse of power and will irreparably damage this institution. Denying the voices of members who have served in the military and law enforcement, as well as leaders of standing committees, has made it undeniable that this panel has lost all legitimacy and credibility and shows the Speaker is more interested in playing politics than seeking the truth.”
“Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be a party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.”
By rejecting Jordan and banks, Pelosi has proven that she wants to run an anti-Trump rally7 rather than get to the truth. I just hope when Jim Jordan gets the gavel in 2023, he will remember this and act accordingly. There will need to be investigations into Biden, Schiff and Swalwell as well as Maxine Waters.
