Kevin McCarthy REFUSES To Support The Democrat’s Corrupt 9/11 Style ‘Bipartisan’ Commission Probe Into Capitol Riot

Kevin McCarthy has just confirmed that he would not endorse a bipartisan commission investigating the Capitol riot:

THE HILL – House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Tuesday said he will not support bipartisan legislation for the 9/11-style commission to probe the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“Given the political misdirections that have marred this process, given the now duplicative and potentially counterproductive nature of this effort, and given the Speaker’s shortsighted scope that does not examine interrelated forms of political violence in America, I cannot support this legislation,” McCarthy said in a statement released Tuesday morning.

This statement comes after the top Democrat and Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee reached an agreement last week on legislation to create the commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack that resulted in the deaths of several people, including a Capitol Police officer.

McCarthy said he could not support the legislation because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “refused to negotiate in good faith” on the parameters of the commission and because Democrats’ “renewed focus” does not include the “political violence” in American cities, the 2017 shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice or the fatal attack on Capitol Police on April 2.

“The presence of this political violence in American society cannot be tolerated and it cannot be overlooked,” McCarthy wrote.

“I have communicated this to our Democrat colleagues for months and its omission is deeply concerning,” he added.

Democrats want to portray the Capitol riot as a terrorist attack on the United States, similar to 9/11. It didn’t even come close to that. It was referred to as an armed insurgency by Nancy Pelosi. It wasn’t armed, and it wasn’t an uprising either. It was an idiotic riot by protesters upset over the election results. I’ve said from the start that it was wrong, and that those who took part should be punished.

Democrats, on the other hand, are clearly attempting to make it more than it was in order to prevent Republicans from winning in 2024. They want to demonize it solely for electoral purposes, giving the media more ammunition to turn it into a huge scandal, and it appears that some Republicans are assisting them in this endeavor:

The deal would create a 10-person body, with five commissioners, including the chairperson, picked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

The other half of the commission members would be selected by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) announced the plan with top committee Republican Rep. John Katko (R-NY). A bill to create the commission is being introduced Friday, with a likely House floor vote next week.

Katko is one of the Republicans who voted to impeach Trump with Liz Cheney, so of course he’ll be helping Democrats to try and hamstring Republicans. Trump hatred is a dangerous thing.

I am glad, however, that McCarthy is standing firm against this commission because this isn’t about the truth. Hopefully McConnell will join him and together they can keep this commission from happening.
