Biased against facts?
"Facts," from Democrats?

When former Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer of California and Rep Stephanie Tubbs objected to Bush's 2004 electoral votes in Ohio back in 2005, it forced the chambers to leave their joint session.

A two-hour debate then ensued in both chambers on whether to reject Ohio's electoral votes, which they didn't end up doing, and Boxer on Thursday emphasized it "wasn’t about overturning the election."

She was the only senator to vote to reject Ohio's electoral votes that year – and Pelosi praised her challenge while acknowledging that they would accept the election outcome.

"Today we are witnessing Democracy at work. This isn't as some of our Republican colleagues have referred to it, sadly, as frivolous. This debate is fundamental to our democracy," Pelosi said at the time.

"The representatives of the American people in this house are standing up for three fundamental American beliefs: The right to vote is sacred; that a representative has a duty to represent his or her constituents; and that the rule of law is the hallmark of our nation."

Doesn't that make her guilty of treason?

You are standing up for exactly the opposite.

How are they "ringers?" Why shouldn't members who actually support Republicans be on the committee? It appears you believe only those who want to lynch Republicans should be on the committee.
cheaters always going to cheat.

ROFL!

You are a fucking joke.
Hey Bri remember this?
it seems they are not beyond their own insurrections when they are.


At least a half-dozen Democratic electors have signed onto an attempt to block Donald Trump from winning an Electoral College majority, an effort designed not only to deny Trump the presidency but also to undermine the legitimacy of the institution.

The presidential electors, mostly former Bernie Sanders supporters who hail from Washington state and Colorado, are now lobbying their Republican counterparts in other states to reject their oaths — and in some cases, state law — to vote against Trump when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 19.

Why would they participate in a witch hunt directed at them?
1. It's not a witch hunt. People actually attempted to force the outcome of a vote through violence.
2. It's only against them if they participated in the crime.
3. It's their job.

It's unfortunate (for you) that McCarthy is as dumb as you. McCarthy was the reason that some members of the Republican Caucus were rejected was part of the power of The Speaker. Her power and perception of the words and deeds of the most partisan hacks in the Congress did not belong on any investigation. McCarthy knew that and that is why he nominated shills.

I'm beginning to suspect McCarthy knows that on Jan 6, Meadows, Faux, Jr., and a host of others, were trying to salvage what was left of Trump's political viability and get him off his fat ass that was watching the TV and jacking off to the show, to try and get the moron to make a speech decrying the violence and telling his supporters to be nice to the cops, get out of the capital and go HOME

That may be what the Trump camp is trying to hide. It was one thing to spin this as "the Steal" but it was not sellable to sack the capitol on live TV, no matter how much Trump enjoyed the show.

they want a jury of whites to determine a black mans life. That's what that says. No black representation allowed. I see it no other way.

An investigative committee comprised of Democrats who hated Trump and two Republicans who hated Trump, all of whom voted to impeach him.
Clearly......no bias there.
Yes. No problem there. And chairman Nancy simply refuses to release documents from her own Capitol
police pleading for more help and more of her mall cops on January 6th, which she all turned down.
All six requests!

Following the Money Trail(s), Members of the Jan. 6 Select Committee Are Uncovering a Well Organized and Financed Coup Attempt

When rooting out corruption, it’s best to follow the money. That is precisely what the Jan. 6 Committee is now doing according to reports detailing lawmakers’ highly organized effort to sniff out potential criminality in funding for pro-trump rallies coordinated ahead of the assault on the Capitol.

First reported by CNN, the committee is digging into financial details around Stop the Steal rally organizers and other similar vendors on their radar. In particular, they are rooting out possible campaign finance or election law violations, as well as other financial crimes.

Earlier this month, the investigatory body issued subpoenas to far-right activist and leader of the Stop the Steal movement, Ali Alexander, and Shelby County, Ohio, city councilman Nathan Martin.

According to the committee, Martin was listed as the point of contact on a permit application submitted to the U.S. Capitol Police for a “One Nation Under God” event last December protesting the 2020 election results.

An unnamed source cited in the CNN report suggested the committee is breaking up its work into teams. Some of the committee’s teams track funds specifically tied to rally organizers and other groups connected to the cheeto-in-chief.

The source also explained that additional teams are reviewing how those groups may overlap while other teams are zeroing in on the cheeto-in-chief himself. Those teams are reportedly reviewing how the bigoted-orange-liar may have leaned on legislators to follow his lead in attempting to overturn the election results or how he used his executive authority to pressure his former lapdog Mike Pence and the Justice Department.

A spokesperson for the Jan. 6 Committee has yet to return any comment, even after multiple requests.

So far, fifteen subpoenas have been issued by the committee publicly. The first batch was delivered by the committee to trump administration officials like former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino. Onetime Pentagon chief of staff Kash Patel was also subpoenaed for records and deposition, as was Steve Bannon, who defied the request and was found in contempt of Congress.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi signed off on the contempt referral, after which it was sent to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington. Some of what the committee sought from Bannon were records and details related to the financing behind the rally in D.C. on the morning of Jan. 6. Investigators also want information Bannon might have regarding travel arrangements and hotel accommodations for rally participants.

Eleven other subpoenas were issued in late September to organizers, including Amy Kremer, founder and chairwoman of Women for America First. The group coordinated the rally at the Ellipse, which overflowed with a mixed bag of trump’s supporters, far-right extremists and white nationalists, among others. Kremer’s daughter and co-founder of Women for America First, Kylie Kremer, was also subpoenaed, as were Caroline Wren and Cindy Chafian.

ProPublica reported in January that text messages and memos between Wren and Cindy Chafian, another organizer of the rally at the Ellipse, were heavily involved in the logistics and budgeting for the event. Maggie Mulvaney, the niece of trump’s acting White House chief of staff-turned director of the Office of Management and Budget-turned special envoy for Northern Ireland Mick Mulvaney, was also subpoenaed.

Mulvaney was listed as a “VIP lead” in the permit arranged by Women for America First. She also served as the director of finance operations for the trump campaign.

Megan Powers, of MPowers Consulting LLC, and Hannah Salem, of Salem Strategies LLC, were also listed on permits for the rally. Both of the women were in charge of scheduling and logistics. Lyndon Brentall of RMS Protective Services was also flagged on permit paperwork as an “on-site supervisor” and Justin Caporale and Tim Unes—both of Event Strategies Inc.—have information about project and stage management for the rally sought by the committee.

Katrina Pierson, trump’s campaign spokesperson in 2016, is also under scrutiny by the committee and received a subpoena last month. According to the FEC, Pierson received $10,000 biweekly for her work with the trump campaign from September 2019 to January 2020. Pierson is believed to have been in contact with trump regularly before and on Jan. 6.

Norm Eisen, a legal analyst for CNN, reported that the committee members divvying up the probe and homing in on financial crimes might be among “the most valuable avenues” to directly connecting trump to the planning and coordination of the insurrection at the Capitol.

As the noose tightens, trumpublicans are anxiously anticipating their big wins in the 2022 Mid-term Elections, after which, as the congressional majority they will have a celebratory bonfire to burn the volumes of damning evidence of the January coup collected by the Select Committee. Also to be thrown into that fire, all copies of the U.S. Constitution found in D.C. and nearby communities.

They ignored the Clintons and Obama taking illegal funds from the Chinese that they know about----but they invade Trump related groups finance for fishing trips to see if they can find anything. Sounds like more lib abuse of office.
