(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stated on Monday that she will be working to establish what she described as an “outside, independent 9/11 style Commission” to investigate the riot that took place at the Capitol building at the beginning of January.
Of course, she hasn’t volunteered to do any such thing for all of the BLM and Antifa riots and violence that has transpired over the course of the last twelve months, despite the fact these two groups have done billions of dollars in damage to major cities across the country, all of which has been motivated by demands for political change.
Which, for those reading this, is exactly what the definition of terrorism is.
According to Breitbart, Pelosi stated in her weekly letter to colleagues that this commission will “investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021, domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex … and relating to the interference with the peaceful transfer of power.”

Pelosi’s announcement comes two days after the Senate voted acquit former President Donald Trump on the single article of impeachment he was charged with, which was essentially the left blaming him for inciting this “insurrection,” which sadly did cause the deaths of five individuals, one of which was a Capitol police officer. The Senate actually voted 57-43 to acquit Trump. Seven members of the GOP voted in favor of convicting him.
Other high profile Democrats have expressed a similar desire to have a 9/11 style commission look into the riot, such as Sen. Chris Coons.
“There’s still more evidence that the American people need and deserve to hear and a 9/11 commission is a way to make sure that we secure the Capitol going forward,” he said. “And that we lay bare the record of just how responsible and how abjectly violating of his constitutional oath President Trump really was.”
Senate Minority Leader voted to acquit Trump, but then later on shredded him, stating he was “practically and morally responsible for provoking the events of the day.” Basically the only reason he voted in favor of acquittal is due to Trump already being out of office.
Wonder if McConnell is thinking about retiring? If not, his comments against Trump might just get him booted in the next election.
