Congress is set to blow town for its latest extended vacation. However, not before Democrats try to push through Nancy Pelosi’s sham “9/11 style” commission to investigate the so-called “insurrection” at the Capitol.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced that he planned to bring the bill that would officially set up the commission to a vote. This would set the stage for hearings that will be used to politically persecute supporters of former President Donald J. Trump in a gross travesty of justice that will be a media spectacle.
According to the New York Democrat, “We all know the commission is an urgent, necessary idea to safeguard our democracy,” Schumer said. “We have to get it passed. Each member of the Senate is going to have to stand up and decide: Are you on the side of truth and accountability or are you on the side of Donald Trump and the big lie?”
Schumer says Senate will “soon” consider legislation to create a commission studying the U.S. Capitol riot

Democrats continue to pound the talking point of the “big lie”. This accurately describes their false narrative of what took place on January 6 when a group of election integrity protesters briefly shut down Congress.
While the events of the day have been distorted to the point where Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has dishonestly called it an “all-out attempted coup,” nothing could be further from the truth. The mostly peaceful protesters were more interested in posing for the media cameras and taking selfies than overthrowing the government.
The bill passed the House last week with the support of 35 Republicans led by malicious actor Liz Cheney and the perpetually whiny Adam Kinzinger. It also featured the members of the “Problem Solver’s Caucus,” a treacherous pack of anti-Trump RINOs.
Schumer needs 60 votes and 10 Senate Republicans to similarly join the ranks of Democrats in order to overcome the first hurdle and the first defectors are obvious.
Failed former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a man with an unhealthy obsession with Trump rushed to join Schumer’s lynch mob.
Mitt Romney, who had expressed some reservations of the Jan. 6 commission bill, just told me he would be a YES if the bill came forward for a vote.
“I would support the bill.”

Romney’s vendetta against Trump put him into the Democrats’ camp the minute that he arrived in Washington as Utah’s junior senator. His vote was a slam dunk after he previously joined them on both impeachments.
Also saddling up with Schumer is RINO Lisa Murkowski of Alaska who frequently clashed with Trump and faces an uncertain future in her bid for reelection next year. The ex-POTUS has already said that he would enthusiastically support a primary challenger.
While I very much appreciate the leadership of @MittRomney @lisamurkowski and @SenatorCollins in supporting the #January6thCommission this process of waiting to see which Republicans will do the right thing has become a lot like the Bataan Death March.https://t.co/s8GHg7iipd

The third head of the Never Trump hydra, Susan Collins edged closer to throwing her support behind the proceeding. The tribunals will likely resemble the infamous 1930s Moscow show trials when opponents of the communist regime were hauled before a politicized kangaroo court.
Despite sharply criticizing her GOP colleagues over blocking the proposes Jan. 6 commission, @GStephanopoulos presses Sen. Collins on new caveats to voting on it: “I don’t see why the report cannot be completed by the end of this year.” https://t.co/WTOoh8gB9r pic.twitter.com/CTnQos2wbx

Whether or not Schumer is able to wrangle an additional 7 votes from a pool that includes Ben Sasse, Pat Toomey, Bill Cassidy, and other anti-Trump Republicans remains to be seen. However, it may be a tough task with Richard Burr already voicing skepticism and Marco Rubio up for reelection in Florida. Rubio needs Trump’s support to fend off Democrat Val Demmings next year.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell who despises Trump and his supporters has remained lukewarm to the creation of the commission. The kangaroo court would have subpoena power that would be immediately abused by Democrats. Perhaps even with the goal of dragging the former president himself in front of the political circus.
Democrats and the old guard Bush-McCain-Romney GOP establishment badly need to breathe new life into the “Big Lie” of the “insurrection” which has already taken major hits. One being the fib that a Capitol Police officer was beaten to death with a fire extinguisher. Also the fact that regardless of how much that Democrats and the media lie, the only violent death that day was Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt. She was gunned down in cold blood by a still-unnamed assailant.
The vote could take place as early as Thursday.
