2,000 injured police, government buildings set on fire, looting, citizens being assaulted, destruction of government and private property.
You need an investigation for that?

You just told us what was destroyed.

What are you looking to find?

Unfortunately fair and bi-partisan isn't the way Washington works. The Benghazi hearings were all about dragging Hillary through the mud and since then it has been Trump on the receiving end. Politicians only want highly publicized investigations and hearings to knock down an opponent they fear. Talk of investigating all riots is useful only as a diversionary tactic to the Jan 6th hearings and has no legs to stand on by itself. At least by Washington's standards. For the GOP, Hunter Biden more fits the bill as their way to attack the President.

Stop dancing and tell us WHY you want that? What do you think it would find?

There has to be a reason or it's a stupid endeavor.

You're not a stupid person...are you?

Why? It's much more fun keeping you commie-ass losers guessing. And prevents us from having to read all your lame-ass excuses.

So we are going to let democrats get away with murder and won't instigate race riots for months on end, causing billions of $ in damage and countless deaths for over a year , but because they have one 5 hour incident of a backlash of they call an "Insurrection" we pause? No. We really need to investigate all THE RIOTS, ALL OF THEM. Not just one cherry picked because it suits your political needs, ALL OF THEM! NOW!

All things being equal, with this investigation of what happened on Jan 6th incident at the capitol (targeting one group, on one day for 5 hours), How about: Congress spread the dragnet out to investigate EVERY SINGLE RIOT since 2020? Why just focus on one single event or group? Sound fair and bi-partisan enough?
Makes you wonder why the GOP didn't investigate last Summer when they controlled the Senate. Also makes us wonder why you didn't want those investigations last Summer....

Again you are conflating Jan 6 with "the riots".

Tell us how you think they are related?

Are you saying Jan 6 would not have happened if "the riots" had not happened?

Are you saying that "the riots" are an EXCUSE for Jan 6/

So let me get this straight.

You are trying to use riots that occurred months earlier in places hundreds and thousands of miles away...as an excuse for what those MAGArat Q freaks did on Jan 6?

That if the riots had not occurred and Trump lost the election that there would have been no Insurrection?

Yea...sure.

In reality one does not excuse the other and one did not CAUSE the other.
Correct. BLM riots set the precedent for Jan 6th. I am glad you got it straight now, Herr Lesh.

I already explained this to you. The zealots on the right saw the zealots on the left burn, loot and murder all summer with few if any repercussions and support from the leftist media calling them “mostly peaceful protests”. They even formed autonomous zones. To you that was not treason even though they didn’t respect US law there. You’re a piece of work.

Well, no. Why are the Democrats enabling race riots that caused billions in damage and took god knows how many lives for over a year, but want a congressional hearing over an a 5 hour event that cost perhaps one million and the only life lost was a protester, Ashli Babbit. We know more about George Floyd. Like that.

d the only person killed wasa protester...

One happened for the express purpose of stopping the constitutional transfer of power; egged on by the soon-to-be-kicked-out-of-office loser of an election who was impeached for doing it.

The others happened in multiple cities because of police brutality and opportunistic thugs.

One is definitely in the congressional role of oversight and entry into the official record. The other? Not so much.

That being said; this--what Pelosi is doing--is theater. No question about it.

You're not the only republican that knows for a fact that investigating the insurrection could only make all of you look bad seeing as how defending them is still a crucial test of loyalty to Trump.
So the OP is right, you only want to investigate the one mini riot, while ignoring the democrat riots that went on every day for a year. Your hypocrisy is noted.

The Jan 6th riot was a stain on the the republicans long history of never rioting. Its unacceptable to our party, which is why you wont see another republican riot in your lifetime.

Now would you like to discuss the hundreds of democrat riots we saw in the past year alone? All but one riot in our nations history were democrat led riots afterall. Do you have anything to say about your parties long history of violence?

They are not and did not.

That's kinda like saying "Well the bank robbery only happened over 7 minutes. Why investigate it?"

I can tell you exactly WHY we are investigating that Insurrection and what we need to find out.

You don't seem to know what you want an investigation of " the riots" for.
