The facts did not support convicting the Officer for the over dose death of the felon .......he died from 3 blocked arteries, an enlarged heart which caused his death after he over dosed on fentanyl and meth..........
The facts are why he is going to prison and what you state are not the facts.

Why is it you think Pelosi HAS the right to refuse to seat Republicans named by McCarthy? Your post doesn't make sense. Obviously if McCarthy is naming GOP members to be on the commission then he's trying to make it a bipartisan effort. It's Pelosi who's spit in McCarthy's eye...not the other way around. Fair...is Pelosi names her choices and McCarthy names his.
She is the speaker. McCarthy is not. That's why.

Because Pelosi is the speaker of the house. Not Mccarthy. And she has the right to refuse the seat because Republicans, led by Mccarthy refused to pass a deal that had these stipulations.

This is what the GOP refused to signup too. So why should Pelosi now give the GOP the chance to appoint ANYBODY to her committee?

In a Republic, actually
Republicans Threaten to Launch Their Own Jan. 6 Riot Commission, Because Why the Hell Not?
Because Republicans are dishonest and liars.

And they’re perfectly happy to contrive and propagate lies about the rightwing terrorist attack on America’s democracy on 1/6.

Pelosi owned McCarthy, Gym Jordamn & the rest of Baby Huey Trump's lackeys in the house. Pelosi beat McCarthy at his own game & it's a sight to behold watching him squirm.
She didn’t do anything but show she’s afraid of facts. Now this will truly be a circus.

Red State ^ | 07/22/2021 |

The political circus over the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol building continues to get zanier, Republicans seem to be more willing to throw their weight around. During a Wednesday briefing at Capitol Hill, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) declared that the GOP will launch its own investigation into the incident, after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled two Republican lawmakers from the supposedly bipartisan committee.



McCarthy’s threat comes after Democrats decided to form their own committee to “investigate” the riot, when it became apparent that they did not have enough support for a 9/11-style commission to look into the matter. RedState’s Nick Arama noted that Pelosi made sure the committee was “stacked with anti-Trump people” like Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and others. However, when the speaker vetoed the appointment of Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Jim Jordan (R-OH), who were the McCarthy’s choices, it became clear that the Democrats were intent on making the panel as partisan as possible.
The House minority leader released a statement, explaining that unless Pelosi seats all five GOP picks, “Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.”
In his announcement, McCarthy said, in part:

In a move that is sure to shock the nation, Cheney defended Pelosi’s actions, stating, “I agree with what the Speaker has done.”

Pelosi also released a statement in which she defended her decision. She argued that the “unprecedented nature” of the Jan. 6 riot “demands the unprecedented decision” to prohibit Banks and Jordan from participating in the panel and requested that McCarthy pick two other Republican lawmakers instead.
Since the effort to form a 9/11-style commission and subsequent Democratic committee are clearly partisan in nature, none of this comes as a surprise. McCarthy likely chose Banks and Jordan, knowing that Pelosi would pull rank and reveal her true intentions.
This sham of an investigation is intended for one purpose: To further weaponize the riot at the U.S. Capitol and milk it for all it’s worth. Democrats are trying to use the incident to gain an advantage for the 2022 midterm elections, and I’ll bet dollars to donuts that the result of the supposed probe will be released at a time when Democrats believe it will help them strategically.
The FBI is already investigating the riot, and there are other congressional investigations proceeding at this moment. This is what Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell pointed out when he signaled that Senate Republicans would not vote in favor of this farce.
In light of all this, why shouldn’t the Republicans form their own committee and conduct their own investigation? After all, some are questioning Pelosi’s conduct as the fracas ensued. What if the GOP digs deeper and finds information that isn’t favorable to the left? Turnabout is fair play, isn’t it?

Pelosi has all but revealed what everyone already knows: The committee is politically motivated. But why should the Democrats have all the fun?
Let’s have two competing investigations that are purely motivated by political expediency. That way, when the Democrats reveal their findings – or better yet, their manufactured evidence — Republicans will have material with which to counter the narrative that the left will almost certainly push when the time comes. If Democrats wish to continue weaponizing the riot, the Republicans don’t have to make it easy for them, do they?

--------------------

Maybe THEY will release the name and ID of Ashli's murderer, because we KNOW the corrupt demonRATS will not!!!!...... and call founder charges to be filed!!!
No one gives a fuck what some Drumpettes do. It will be seen as just another fraudit.

Sounds like a good idea. They'll never do it but it would be fantastic to watch it. I'd actually watch this before I'd think about tuning in to what the Democrats are doing.

Please proceed.

Because they haven't finished investigating Benghazi yet.

Actually it's because McCarthy had his chance with the bi-partisan committee he had the republicans negotiate, that he turned down.
It would have given each side equal representation, equal subpoena power, and equal agenda power. But of course, McCarthy wouldn't take yes for an answer, because he wanted no investigation at all.

You can picture Pelosi on Jan 6, in a secure room with plenty of guards, pumping her fist while watching the break in on TV. She no doubt felt like someone who just won the ladies PGA by sinking a twenty foot putt. It turned out exactly how Pelosi wanted it to.

This would be a pointless waste of time and money. They would be better served using those resources to prepare for urban insurrection hearings the moment they win the House in 2022.

We need to know who authorized the shooting of protesters.
And we need to know the details of the Pelosi's investigation that cleared Officer Byrd.

Forget it. The Democrats already wasted enough taxpayers funds with their kangaroo court. Let the GOP do something useful.
