The Indictments Of The Capitol Invaders May Serve To Highlight The GOP’s Failure To Approve A January 6th Commission!

With the continuing arrests of the insurrectionists at our Capitol on January 6th, we will soon begin to hear the excuses of the defendants.

Read about the burgeoning numbers of defending rioters and the media coverage these trials will engender here.

GOP Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell and House GOP minority leader Kevin McCarthy may come to regret not allowing a January 6th Commission on this historic Trumpers engendered insurrection.

These rioter trials will doubtless be ongoing well into 2022 as the midterm elections approach.

If these corrupt GOP leaders had properly followed historic prescient (such as occurred with Watergate and 9/11) a coverup could not now be charged to the GOP leadership.

However, as the invaders testify about the sources for their opinions the vast network of underground lying media spuing “fake news” should offer elected honest elected officials chances for reform legislation!!

How many rioter cases are pending, what are the charges and what will these defendants claim as the basis for their innocence? Should be interesting.

Fascinating stuff which wouldn’t have proved the GOP coverup if McConnell had really thought through the adverse consequences of his politically stupid decision.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to empanel a Select Committee to investigate the January 6th insurrection is desirable but its perceived partisanship even with Republican Congress woman, Liz Cheney, as a member may not prove as effective as listening to the arguments in the media of the indicted rioters. McCarthy will doubtless seek his doxies to join the denial of Trump’s culpability, but a report with approval of the final report’s conclusions by Cheney will be powerful evidence of the GOP’s indifference to the truth.

This media exposure will surely lead to more Americans gaining a better understanding of the destructive lying by some of the deep right wing electronic medias with its motivating lies to Trump’s faithful supporters to violence.

However, as we approach our important holiday of July 4th, I searched diligently for Wall Street Journal articles and opinions on the January 6th insurrection and found little. However, I did find that NBC took up the matter as you can read here.
