None of the other names ring a bell.  But is this where Nancy substitutes Kinzinger for Jordan?

I wish I'd laid a bet down for this.  I knew at least one member of the Sedition Squad would be picked, and he was the frontrunner in my mind, because he is (unfortunately) the best at vomiting out GQP bullfark in a form that engages the biggest part of FoxNation.  He SOUNDS intelligent to the unintelligent.

They need to set a dress code that make representatives must wear a jacket. Jordan would show up dressed like this:

They all voted to overturn AZ and  GA elections.

As I understood it, republicans could suggest who they wanted on the committee, but Democrats could ignore those suggestions.

They should veto jordan. He's one of the guilty, and should not be selected to sit in judgement of himself.

Any republican who wants a place on the committee should be required to go on tv and admit to the nation that Biden won fair and square, before they're allowed to participate.

That would eliminate most of them from consideration.

Nancy Pelosi, from what I understand, needs to sign off on it.

I have a strong feeling this is yet another GQP set up where they know what Pelosi is going to do, and the republicans can go crying "censorship," "cancel culture" and "opposition."

There was no agreement. At least no across-the-aisle agreement. McConnell, unfortunately, agreed to nothing.

They had their chance for an agreement with some control over the investigation.  You're right, McConnell and the rest of the Senate Republicans said they weren't interested in a bi-partisan/non-partisan committee.  So they're screwed.

Being in Indiana, I'll let you know Jordan might not even be the worst Jim on the committee.   

Jordan is loud... Banks is stealthy.

It has come to light that this supposed selection of representatives for the 1 / 6 committee has selected only representatives that voted to block the certification of results in Arizona.

In keeping with the Standards these members used in analyzing the results of the election I have performed an independent statistical analysis of the results. I have determined that fraud has been committed.

There were 204 GOP votes cast on the Arizona certification. Of these 121 were votes to block the certification. 5 did not vote.

It therefore follows that the chances that the first person picked being from this group are 121 / 209 or 57.9%

Given that, the chance that the second pick voted against certification also is (121 / 209)  * (120 / 208 ) or 33.4%

Continuing, the probability that all 6 were from the votes to block is 3.57%. This is below the 5% p-value cutoff so clearly the selection has been tampered with and the results must be thrown out.

Meh, let him on it.  The evidence will be so overwhelming that it will absolutely destroy the Republican attempts to white-wash the event.  I hope the whole thing is broadcast.
 
2021-07-19 10:34:43 PM  
I'm curious to see Pelosi's reaction tomorrow.

I hope she bounces any of them that voted against Certification and/or either Impeachment.

Which would be all 5 of them.

"Nice try, Qevin. Tell Donald to lawyer up."
