McCarthy Says He’s ‘SHOCKED’ Cheney Accepted Panel Assignment from Pelosi

Last week, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) announced that she would move forward with a House Select Committee on the January 6 riot.

At the time, it sounded as though she was going to only appoint Democrats.

That has since changed, with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) being asked to join, a move called shocking by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

SHOCKING

Pelosi wants this commission to be taken seriously, so she needs it to appear to be bipartisan in nature.

For that to happen, she must have at least one Republican on the committee.

So, who does she choose? Arguably the most anti-Trump Republican in the House… Liz Cheney.

While Pelosi wanting her on the committee was not a shock, McCarthy was “shocked” she accepted an assignment from a Democrat.

McCarthy stated, “I was shocked that she would accept something from Speaker Pelosi.”

He added, “It would seem to me, since I didn’t hear from her, maybe she’s closer to [Pelosi] than us. I don’t know.”

That would be an understatement.

McCarthy also reiterated that he has nothing against such a committee, only the scope of the investigation.

He stated, “There’s so many failures along that way that happened the days before that allowed individuals to get into the building.”

Cheney tried to justify accepting the assignment from the opposing party leader, stating, “What happened on January 6th can never happen again.

“Those who are responsible for the attack need to be held accountable and this select committee will fulfill that responsibility in a professional, expeditious, and non-partisan manner.”

I would say that I agree with that statement right up until the last part because there is no way this committee look at this with neutral eyes.

They going into it with a conclusion drawn, then hoping to find a way to justify that conclusion with selective facts.

The only way we will ever find out who was responsible is if the scope of the investigation is expanded, which would put comments made the by likes of several Democrats, including both Kamala Harris and Pelosi, into the mix.

That is specifically why Pelosi will limit this investigation to January 6 and not the days, weeks, and months leading up to that day.

My best guess here is that Cheney just sealed her fate in the next election by taking on this assignment.

I will be astonished if she wins re-election.

    1. Katydid!! You are correct. She (Cheney) is a wolf in sheep clothing… Meaning she is a Democrat all the way!!
      I hope Wyomingians WAKE UP! If your Democrat all you have to do is steal the next election by deception at the ballot box…. WATCH OUT WYOMING. BE ON YOUR TOES IN 2022!!!

  1. My GOD! my GOD! Pelosi, why don’t you do something good for American people.
    We are tired of you, because you show your hatred toward president TRUMP.
    If you like to do dirty works, look into Hunter Biden.

  2. the fact that pettypelosi chose this particular path to what she calls bipartisan is not lost on the real republicans, the voters who have had enuf of the lying, cheating and scheming for ways to defraud the United States of America

  3. Nancy Pelosi planned the capital building crap. She gets to investigate herself and the agents who were undercover, Mayor of DC who bussed in antifa. Who shot a veteran? A cover-up by Nancy Pelosi. Corruption from start to finish. Total waste of taxpayers money.

  4. Liz Cheney lending an appearance on the House Select Committee on the January 6 riot isn’t really bi-partisan. Cheney is Republican in name only and does not reflect GOP values in any way, so as far as Select Committee is concerned, it’s still a Democrat hack job. Does anyone actually think they are after truth? Because if they do, I’ve got a bridge for sale, going cheap.

  5. Them Liz rhino needs to tell herself and the demarats that can’t happen again because it was played for and planned by them.and rhinos like her.

  6. Didn’t our tax money already investigate this? President Trump was cleared. I guess she wants her own so she can further her aims to try to do as much damage as possible. What a waste, and why hasn’t somebody stood up to say, enough!?

  7. What gets me is the smug look on Pelosi’s face lately in every pic you see. She is definitely up to something.

  8. That is why she has put limits on what the committee can look at in their so-called investigation. The last investigation already indicated that the problem was that the Capitol security was very ill prepared for such an action. One of the reasons that the committee was weak on the problem was that Swamp Queen Pelosi limited who they could call to testify. For example, the Capitol Police were not allowed to testify. Also, it was Pelosi who refused the offers of additional security forces from the National Guard. Because it was Trump’ idea nd initial offer a few days before Jan. 6th, she would not allow anything Trump suggested. Her hatred is that deep. Pelosi has control of the Capitol Police ad the Sargent at Arms. Even when the Capitol Police suggested the National Guard, the Sargent at Arms had to get Pelosi’s approval. He didn’t get it.

    I suspect Pelosi was more involved with the planning of the Jan 6th act than she wants the public to know. So she has blocked any testimony from the Capitol Police. She was most likely the person who gave the stand down order to the Capitol Police. She probably also gave the instructions to allow the the people to enter the building without and resistance.

  9. Pelosi is not a politician she nothing more than a drama our entire. If there is not enough drama in are lives ,she makes some. Everyone knows her hate for Trump and she will go to what means to destroy him, doesn’t matter the cost, it’s not out of her pocket . She planned this and it will come out what truly happened. She has failed in her four years of trying to bring him down. This will show how off base she is again. She refused the national guard protection , so really how scared was she ⁉️ She a very poor actor and it will all come out and she should now pay her dues for being so UN-AMERICAN . Can’t wait to see the end of her and take that hateful person out of office .
