The Republicans on the Select Committee are not out to find the truth about January 6th...

They are there to defend Donald Trump.

If they are not prepared to get to the truth, all the truth, they should not be on the Committee.

It doesn't matter if they are Democrats or Republicans. It should not be partisan.

If they cannot do that simple job, then perhaps they should withdraw from the Committee?

That is not the place for partisan division.

I suppose that may be asking too much?

1. three of them voted to object to the 2020 Electoral College results

2. They will try to make a circus out of it.

That is the goal.

3. They are not yet on the committee.

Nancy is not stupid. She will veto the insurrection supporters.

11. I suppose the only surprise is the level of audacity...

Otherwise, my first reaction was "... and water is wet"

Isnít much of a surprise. Just SOP for the GOP.

5. Speaker Pelosi can veto their selection, and she should.

Let McCarthy know in no uncertain terms, no Anti-American and Anti-Democracy members. This is not a game.

Adam Schiff and Jamie Raskin are not to be trifled with.

9. The question is will she? Some of those selected by McCarthy have already disparaged the objective

of the committee, and those who have done that should be vetoed from being part of it. Otherwise, it will devolve in a disruptive political circus

6. Most times...

Republicans have commissions, investigations, or committees to bury the truth about whatever issue is in question.

This time, being the minority, they will probably attempt to obfuscate the details, or accuse someone else of being the culprits. We will probably hear all about the fake boogeyman, ďantifaĒ.

8. Exactly. They have said as much, and this is why no one should be on that committee who has

disparaged the committee's objective, should be part of that committee

10. There shouldn't be ANY Rethugs on the committee

They are responsible for what happened. Having them on the committee is like allowing an accused murderer to serve on his own jury.
