Pelosi Threatens ‘Power’ Move with Independent Jan. 6 Commission

It’s bold talk from Nancy, but is anyone buying it?

One of the most vicious arguments that we’ve been hearing in Washington today is regarding the events of January 6th, and just what sort of information is left to be discovered regarding that fateful day.

On the right side of the aisle there is great trepidation about making a public, political spectacle of any further investigations into the attempted insurrection at the Capitol.  The reason being is that Donald Trump still holds a great deal of weight within the Republican Party, and the Democrats would have plenty of ammunition to glean from such a probe.

The Democrats, of course, want a chance to re-adjudicate Donald Trump’s potential “incitement” of the incident, trying to hammer it home before the midterms and the 2024 election, too.

After the GOP effectively shut down any chance of there being a congressional “commission” to explore the subject, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is threatening drastic action.

While speaking to Dana Bash on CNN:

Pelosi said, “A week ago I was asked to give it another week. So I’ll see by Monday if the Senate believes that they could — those who are working in a bipartisan way can get three more votes.”

Bash said, “Assuming the commission doesn’t pass, are you saying by Monday, which is tomorrow, you’ll announce a select committee?”

Pelosi responded, “No, I’m not going to announce anything tomorrow. I want to see what their response is and then review it with my conference.”

Bash said, “It sounds like you’re getting closer to it.”

Pelosi said, “It’s an option, and everybody knows the power of the Speaker to do that. So I would hope that that would motivate them to say, let’s go a different place. But the question arises, what the Republicans in the Senate are so afraid of the truth? Why are they so afraid of the truth?”

Pelosi’s flexing certainly won’t frighten Mitch McConnell, however, who has grown incredibly bold and boisterous in his defense of former President Donald Trump as of late.

VIDEO: AOC’s Mask Hypocrisy Captured on Camera

What a phony!

Do as I say, not as I do. It has become the Democratic motto of late, with a vast number of liberal-leaning lawmakers eschewing their own advice, time and again, as it pertains to COVID-19 precautions. Former President Barack Obama was set to have nearly 700 guests over to his Martha’s Vineyard mansion for a birthday party in the coming days, before he was shamed into culling the guest list by media pressure. Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser attended an indoor wedding mask-less, despite pushing a mask mandate for businesses in the city. And now, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been caught faking it in terms of coronavirus safety. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., masked up for a photo op with activists on the steps of the U.S. Capitol — but only for the picture, a viral video shows. Ocasio-Cortez dropped her coronavirus mask after the snap Monday, when she posed with protesters in support of a new eviction moratorium. She was joined by fellow progressive Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass. The congresswoman was maskless while sitting on the steps before the photo, but donned her gray mask before Markey sat down and the picture was snapped. “Housing is a human right,” the group said as the picture was taken, with someone after the photo saying “Everybody say ‘whiskey.’” The moment was captured on video. https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1422754744968302595?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1422754744968302595%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Faoc-coronavirus-mask-capitol AOC has been highly efficient as it pertains to using social media to build her brand, but, should this go viral, it could make the limelight burn just a little bit hotter.
