It does indicate that Troy Nehls didn't give tours to the Taupeshirts, or help coordinate their travel plans.

"Playing politics" =/= investigating treason

McQarthy is an irredeemable asshole and a traitor.

Congressman Kevin McCarthy: Well of course she's going to veto him.  He's a cop!  Democrats HATE cops!  We LOVE our police!  Back the blue, amirite?!?

Officer Michael Fanone: Um... excuse me?  WTF did you just say, you spineless turdlicker?
 
2021-07-21 8:18:28 PM  
The military has police. checkmarks, labrats.

McCarthy lying? Is this a repeat from the 50's?

Well the Rep should follow the Senator's lead and start drinking extremely heavily right now.

There can be only one.

They're also planned by idiots and morons and people who don't know what words mean. In other words, Republicans.

The Red Hats were always going to dispute the Select Committee. Fancy Nancy doesn't need to offer them any seats.

Yes, they are. Nixon in fact had statements prepared for both if the moon landing succeeded or if it failed. However it would have been a little embarrassing if he had read the wrong one.

Ok, so who served in the military? The one guy was a cop, but Jordan never served or he'd be bragging about it all the time.

The most depressing part of all the political theater that goes on, is knowing that every Representative and Senator has been elected by the majority of votes by their constituents. It would appear that a majority of people spend less time researching who they should vote for than they do when buying a desktop fan, which blows a different kind of hot air.
 
2021-07-21 8:36:16 PM  
They beat the hell out of the Capitol Police....you really think a smart move would be removing law enforcement vets from the panel?

Seems to me McCarthy wouldn't want boys in blue on the panel....ya know, cause they tend to stick together.

Jordan served in the sexual assault division.

The GOP have delayed the investigation by 6 months, and will do everything in their power to drag it out until after the midterms
 
2021-07-21 8:39:35 PM  
Jim Jordan voted to overturn the vote, after the insurrection.

There is NO WAY he should be serving on that committee.  He is not only biased, he is on their side! He has shown himself to be one of the people that needs to be interviewed.  And Pelosi has said as much.

It is asinine to let the GOP control the narrative on this in any way.  So of course we are going to let the GOP control the narrative.

I agree, but his first name is spelled "Gym".

Troy Nehls was also a Major in the Army Reserve who served in Iraq.

Interviewed?

I want to see him under oath with Liz Cheney asking the questions, while all the Democrats sit back and smile.

And now she should, and say the reason why is to help the minority leader with his propaganda.

Yeah, he clearly thought Pelosi would veto all of them but she saw his bluff and he f*cked it.
 
2021-07-21 9:11:57 PM  
What a journalist needed to ask...

Since Pelosi did not reject Nehls and instead only rejected Jordan and Banks, aren't you the one denying voices for the military and law enforcement by withdrawing Nehls?
 
2021-07-21 9:21:22 PM  

hubiestubert: It does indicate that Troy Nehls didn't give tours to the Taupeshirts, or help coordinate their travel plans.


Point of order: I would argue McCarthy including him suggests the opposite. McCarthy was not making appointments in good faith.

This was all so predictable.

Pelosi: You can nominate a few Reps to the 1/6 panel.

McQarthy: (Nominates rabid pro-t****ers who supported the insurrection.)

Pelosi: Not those people, they materially supported an attack on the Capitol.

McQarthy: YOU'RE PLAYING POLITICS!!!

Nehls voted to overturn the election as well.

He absolutely shouldn't be on the committee, which is why McCarthy's comments assumed he would be rejected.

And now that McCarthy said he won't participate it also shows exactly why Pelosi put Cheney on the committee, so that there is a Republican even without McCarthy.

Nielsen or whatever his name is. The guy from Indiana who was going to be the ranking member. He was in the guard and did one tour in Afghanistan IRRC.

I really think he thought she would just roll over. Because, you know, he's an idiot.

When has Qevin McCarthy ever done anything in good faith?
 
2021-07-21 9:39:18 PM  
How can they seek "truth" when almost every member proposed has voted against certifying Joe Biden's win -- or even looking into 1/6??

Might be interested to create an app that allows users to create tweets ahead of time with set blanks, then fill in the blanks later when it needs to be sent.

What if it was true? Why would that be a bad thing, especially considering how many insurrectionists were in one or both of those groups?
 
2021-07-21 10:02:53 PM  
Did we (Dems) kinda win this? Why didn't McCarthy just keep trying? He got some members on. He could have put forward somebody else. I think the Rs overestimate the attraction of Jordan. He's such a little weasel. He has a small man's high-pitched whiny voice. It's incredibly grating. And I say this as a physically small man.

No, Dems did not in any sense win this, because there's still fascists on the committee to investigate an attempted fascist coup.
