I think it is safe to say that most of us believe the outcome of the January 6 Select Committee has already been predetermined.
If there were any doubts, the release and framing of the Meadows’ texts should have made that very clear.
Even so, rather than pushing back on the committee even a bit, Senator McConnell (R-KY) says this is something we all need to see.
I Beg to Differ
When the idea of an investigation into January 6 was first broached, I was all for it.
However, I was very clear that if the investigation was to be taken seriously, it would need to be by a neutral, outside source.
It would also have to look at every aspect of what happened, including the security protocols being breached and statements by Democrats that fed into the anger on the right.
To look at something like that riot and only limit the investigation to that day or one side is simply idiotic.
Yet, that is exactly what is happening.
So, all of the inflammatory comments made by Democrats will be ignored, as will the calls for the National Guard and extra police by some Republicans, including Trump.
McConnell, however, hates Trump as much as anyone on the left right now, mainly because Trump continues to call him out for his failed leadership in the Senate.
That being the case, McConnell cannot wait to see what the committee has to offer.
He stated, “I think the fact-finding is interesting.
“We’re all going to be watching it.
“It was a horrendous event, and I think what they’re seeking to find out is something the public needs to know.”
This entire stunt will backfire if this committee does not come up with a slam dunk against Trump, only emboldening Trump and his base for 2024.
In the meantime, after these comments by Mitch, I think we can expect another round of bombs to come from Trump that will be aimed directly at McConnell.
