    Today, after Nancy Pelosi objected to Jim Jordan and Jim Banks serving on the investigative committee, Kevin McCarthy threw a hissy fit and decided to pull all five of his picks. He accused Pelosi of an "egregious abuse of power" and said the committee "has lost its legitimacy." Hey, Kevin, how "legitimate" would the committee be with Retrumplicans who believe Trump won the election? Republican Liz Cheney was chosen by Pelosi and will serve on the committee. Cheney today called McCarthy's rhetoric "disgraceful" and said his "lack of commitment to the Constitution" should disqualify him from serving as Speaker of the House if Republicans regain the House in 2022. She said, "At every opportunity, the minority leader has attempted to prevent the American people from understanding what happened. The idea that anybody would be playing politics with an attack on the United States Capitol is despicable and disgraceful."

    With very few exceptions, Congressional Retrumplicans have sold their souls to Donald Trump. They are blindly loyal members of the Cult of Donald Trump. They worship him. They protect him and defend him at all costs. Thus, it comes as no surprise that they want to investigate the Capitol riot but may ignore Trump's role in inciting it.

    Kevin McCarthy says GOP will do its own, more partisan Capitol riot probe
    The Republican leader suggested his investigation won’t look at Donald Trump’s role in the attack.

    Six gigabytes of video of the January 6 Capitol riot. That's six more gigabytes of evidence for Retrumplicans to refuse to acknowledge while they continue to insist the insurrection was "peaceful" and a "tourist visit" and, anyway, certainly was not provoked and incited by Donald Trump.

    Judge forces US Capitol rioter to unlock laptop seized by FBI
    CNN, Jul 21 2021 7:09 PM ET

    A federal judge today forced a US Capitol rioter to unlock his laptop after prosecutors argued that it likely contained more than 6 gigabytes of videos of the January 6 insurrection filmed on a helmet-worn camera. Judge Dabney Friedrich granted the Justice Department's request to place Capitol riot defendant Guy Reffitt in front of his laptop so they could use facial recognition to unlock the device. Investigators seized the laptop and other devices earlier this year pursuant to a search warrant.

    Reffitt has been in jail since his arrest in January. His case received national attention after his son spoke publicly about how Reffitt had threatened to kill family members if they turned him into the FBI. The case became an example of how former President Donald Trump's lies tore some families apart. Reffitt's son and daughter testified against him in court or before the grand jury. He pleaded not guilty to five federal crimes, including bringing a handgun to the Capitol grounds during the insurrection and obstructing justice by allegedly threatening his family. The felony gun charge undercuts false claims from Trump and prominent Republican lawmakers that the rioters weren't armed and that they had "no guns whatsoever."

    Kevin McCarthy and his Retrumplican cohorts in the House of Representatives live in Trumpworld, the topsy-turvy land of delusions where wrong is right, bad is good, down is up, Trump won in 2020, the election was "rigged" and "stolen" and the mob that rioted at the US Capitol on January 6 was, as Trump put it, a "very loving crowd." CNN White House reporter Stephen Collinson notes that "the House Republican Party will do anything in its quest to shield Trump from accountability and to prevent Americans – and ultimately history – from having a true understanding of what happened on January 6." Yes, when you've sold your soul to Donald Trump and you're a blindly loyal member of the Cult of Donald Trump, you have to protect him and defend him at all costs.

    Pelosi said the GOP's "antics" will not keep the committee from discovering the truth about the deadly, Trump-incited Capitol riot. McCarthy said the committee is a "sham" and is "politically driven" by Pelosi. Hey, Kevin, the riot was politically driven! And in newly released audio, Donald Trump on March 31 described the rioters to two Washington Post reporters: "It was a loving crowd, too, by the way. There was a lot of love. I've heard that from everybody." Pelosi and the Democrats seek the truth. Delusional Donald, mendcaious McCarthy and the Retrumplicans seek to downplay the riot and prevent Americans from learning the truth.

    According to Insider.com, 586 Capitol rioters have now been charged with federal crimes. It is truly scary that so many people believed Donald Trump's Big Lie of a "rigged" and "stolen" election" and were willing to fight for him and even willing to kill for him. Delusional Donald called the mob "loving." In truth, they were rioting, vandalizing the Capitol building and chanting, "Hang Mike Pence! Hang Mike Pence!"

    Bennie Thompson, who represents Mississippi's 2nd District in the House of Representatives and is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, is heading the House committee investigating the deadly, Trump-incited Capitol riot. The committee will conduct its first hearing July 27. Law enforcement officers who responded to the insurrection will testify. Nancy Pelosi appointed seven Democrats and one Republican (Liz Cheney) to serve on the committee. Kevin McCarthy selected five Republicans to be part of the committee but threw a hissy fit and withdrew all five after Pelosi objected to two of his choices because they support Donald Trump's Big Lie of a "rigged" and "stolen" election and refuse to accept Joe Biden as President. And, speaking of Trump.......

    In January, Adam Kinzinger – who refuses to believe Donald Trump's Big Lie of a "rigged" and "stolen" election – was one of only 10 House Republicans who sided with Democrats in voting to impeach Trump for inciting an insurrection. In February, the Senate voted 57–43 to convict Trump, falling 10 votes short of the two-thirds majority required by the Constitution. Once again, "Teflon Don" got off scot-free. In May, Senate Retrumplicans – whose loyalty is to Donald Trump and him alone – blocked the bill to create an independent bipartisan commission to investigate the deadly, Trump-incited Capitol riot. Retrumplicans do not want Americans to know the truth. In June, Nancy Pelosi announced the formation of a select committee to investigate the riot. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, the only House Republicans to vote in favor of establishing the committee, are now part of it. The investigative panel was to have 13 members – eight chosen by Pelosi and five chosen by Kevin McCarthy – but McCarthy threw a hissy fit and withdrew his five picks because Pelosi objected to two who believe Trump's Big Lie.

    A growing number of House Retrumplicans – who have sold their souls to Donald Trump and do not want Americans learning the truth about the deadly, Trump-incited riot – want Kevin McCarthy to punish the two Republicans who will serve on the House select committee. How dare they refuse to believe the Big Lie that Trump won in 2020 and the election was "stolen" from him! How dare they refuse to protect and defend Donald Trump at all costs! How dare they support the Constitution, the rule of law and their oath of office!

    Kevin McCarthy, Retrumplican Speaker of the House, considers Liz Cheney to be a RINO (Republican In Name Only) because she refuses to believe Donald Trump's Big Lie of a rigged, stolen election and she refuses to protect and defend Trump at all costs. Cheney and her fellow committee members are determined to learn the truth about the deadly, Trump-incited Capitol riot. McCarthy has sold his soul to Donald Trump and does not want the truth to be known. What is he so afraid of?
