"Mr. Banks said that the Biden administration was responsible for January 6th. There was no Biden administration on January 6th," Speaker Pelosi said.
"I think that any person who would be third in line to the presidency must demonstrate a commitment to the Constitution and a commitment to the rule of law and the Minority Leader has not done that." - Rep. Liz Cheney
Kevin McCarthy may have pulled all of his picks for the Jan 6th commission, but that just harms his cause.
Republican Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas repeatedly referred to what appeared to be written talking points on Sunday when he was asked why he supported multiple Benghazi investigations but opposes a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
Democracy dies in daylight.
Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) over the weekend declined to say if he is "putting country above party" by opposing a commission to study the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Republicans tried to insert 'red herrings' into the commission authorization, which Speaker Pelosi refused.
