Nancy Pelosi thought she had everything mapped out perfectly.
But Pelosi’s plans quickly went down in flames.
Nancy Pelosi’s life got turned upside down by this surprise announcement.
Nancy Pelosi thought she stacked the deck of a select committee created by Pelosi to conduct another witch hunt against Donald Trump over the January 6 riot at the Capitol.
Pelosi got to appoint eight members of the commission and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy got to pick the remaining five.
There was some thought that McCarthy may not appoint anyone as a protest against a committee Republicans argued was essentially a third impeachment of Donald Trump to try and tar the GOP as the party of insurrection.
But McCarthy eventually appointed five Republicans who Breitbart described as “conservative killers” and “law enforcement experts.”
McCarthy’s choices were Indiana Congressman Jim Banks, Illinois Representative Rodney Davis, Ohio’s Jim Jordan, North Dakota Congressman Kelly Armstrong, and Texas freshman Troy Nehls.
Banks is a military veteran that served in the Navy Reserve and took a leave of absence from the Indiana State House to deploy to Afghanistan.
Jordan is the Republicans’ “go-to guy” to put on oversight committees because of his ability to stand toe-to-toe with Democrats on the law, facts and politics in any partisan brawl.
Armstrong is a lawyer and Nehls is a former sheriff.
McCarthy appointed Congressman Banks to serve as the committee’s top Republican.
In a statement following McCarthy’s announcement, Representative Banks made it clear the GOP committee members would make sure the American people understood Nancy Pelosi failed to organize proper security for the Capitol on January 6, and that the public would get a clear picture of the Democrats looking the other way – or even cheerleading – for attacks on law enforcement as well as the Black Lives Matter and antifa riots.
“If Democrats were serious about investigating political violence, this committee would be studying not only the January 6 riot at the Capitol, but also the hundreds of violent political riots last summer when many more innocent Americans and law-enforcement officers were attacked,” Banks declared. “And of course, the committee would not overlook the Good Friday murder of USCP Officer Billy Evans that was perpetrated by a far-left extremist.”
Banks continued on blasting Pelosi’s creation of this committee to act as a political hit squad against Republicans.
“Make no mistake, Nancy Pelosi created this committee solely to malign conservatives and to justify the Left’s authoritarian agenda,” Banks added.
Republicans quickly realized Pelosi creating a January 6 select committee was never about the truth or a real investigation.
Speaker Pelosi’s picks of Congressman Adam Schiff and Jamie Raskin – the two lead impeachment managers – made it clear that this committee only existed to attack Donald Trump and smear Republicans.
That’s why McCarthy responded in kind by picking five Republicans he believes are best suited to blow up the Democrats’ narrative.
