Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi alluded to the January 6th Commission, a 9/11 style commission that is looking into the 2021 capitol riot, is now looking into several GOP representatives who are currently in Congress.
From The Daily Wire:
Speaking to The 19th News, Pelosi called Jordan and Banks “clowns,” “outrageous,” and “not serious” and accused them of perpetuating the so-called “Big Lie,” though she did not offer examples aside from the Republicans objecting to the Electoral College vote certification, which Democrats have also done in the past.
“We’ll see what the committee finds out about them,” Pelosi told The 19th News, referring to the Republicans.
As noted by Forbes, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MD) made it clear that “nothing will be off-limits” for the panel to investigate. Moreover, Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) “said he supports subpoenaing top House Republicans.”
Kinzinger and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) are the sole Republicans on the committee and both vociferous critics of former President Donald Trump. Former Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) was tapped earlier this month to advise the committee.
Many are viewing the possible actions by the January 6th commission as an act of retribution against Jim Jordan and other members of GOP for looking into Pelosi’s role in the event.
