GOP: investigating the insurrection is a distraction from our job, which is to pass bills that improve the lives of Americans
DEMS: ok here’s some legislation
GOP: oh absolutely not

The House of Representatives passed a bill to form a commission to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump https://t.co/w8sn8tWwrF pic.twitter.com/wb931wnSkE

If one of our two political parties said we should not investigate 9/11 because a commission would find super damaging info about our party: you think mainstream media would have treated that as unremarkable political debate or admission of anti-US rot in that political party?

A proposal to create a 9/11-style commission to investigate the U.S. Capitol attack by a mob of Donald Trump's supporters advanced in Congress even as one key Republican announced opposition and another suggested the former president could become a witness https://t.co/YmCRqcKfS6 pic.twitter.com/m29kkcVdet

Unfair to al-Qa’ida, which, unlike the Republican Party, took responsibility for its murderous attack on the United States. https://t.co/jxhoKVTfMm

McCarthy wants to block a bipartisan commission on the Jan. 6 insurrection.
It’s clear why:
He doesn’t want to disclose what he discussed with Trump that day.
Or let Americans learn more about congressional Republicans’ complicity in the attempt to overturn our democracy.

My guess is some GOP members of Congress – including McCarthy – are terrified of being called to testify under oath about what they know.

We just voted 252-175 to create an independent, bipartisan Jan. 6 commission.
35 Republicans had the courage & decency to join us.
175 Republicans voted for chaos over our Constitution, & turned their backs on the police who protected us.

this is pretty much word for word how the German press retroactively minimized the Beer Hall Putsch. haha these dumbasses can't be a threat to anyone, they can't even handle a provincial Bavarian police force, anyway this Hitler guy has written a cool book,
