McCarthy made that crystal clear within the 5 Republican members of Congress he put forth for the Home choose committee shaped to analyze the Capitol rebel. The 5: Republicans Jim Jordan of Ohio, Jim Banks of Indiana, Rodney Davis of Illinois, Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota and Troy Nehls of Texas.
What Jordan’s presence on the committee ensures then is that it is going to be a circus. Jordan will attempt to concentrate on debunked conspiracy theories about Antifa being concerned within the January 6 riots. He’ll bully witnesses introduced by Democrats to testify about their recollection of that day. He’ll defend Trump regardless of the previous President’s clear involvement in inciting the January 6 crowd and his unwillingness to instantly communicate out when it turned clear the protests had turned violent.
Briefly: Jordan will muddy the waters. He’ll make it unimaginable for the common American trying to perceive the rebel to take action. He’ll throw something and all the pieces on the wall in an try and distract folks from the underlying details of that day.
And, not for nothing, these details are these: A mob overwhelmed law enforcement officials and stormed the US Capitol in an try and cease the certification of the Electoral School. Within the course of, greater than 100 law enforcement officials have been injured. 5 folks died because of the rebel. And greater than 500 folks have now been charged for his or her roles within the riot that day.
Which is a disgrace. As a result of a failure to reckon with January 6 drastically raises the possibilities that we are going to have one other day prefer it someday within the not-so-distant future.
