Interesting hearing

I see your government finally got around to investigating the insurrection in January.

Pretty heart breaking statements from police to begin with.

Thinking people knew that your former president and his followers were behind it even though many of that party have tried to downplay the insurrection and even claimed it was just 'tourists'

https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/dc-commission-jan-6-attack-begins-1.6118852

Dramatic new video was introduced on Tuesday as a committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., opened its first hearing with a focus on the law enforcement officers who were attacked and beaten as the rioters broke into the building.

The footage of violence and mayhem shown at the hearing includes the sort of blunt language, profanity and racial slurs rarely heard on daytime television, and yet it was shown live widely on several television networks with warnings of graphic material.

Four police officers — two from the Capitol Police and two with the metropolitan force — shared the witness stand as a special select committee began its long-awaited investigation into the attempted insurrection of Jan. 6.

Yea, you gotta remember that old paddle-pops pelosi is in charge and she has been more worried about insider trading tips for her old man; not sure why it took her and the hypocrats so long to schedule this hearing; and no one has ever said what old paddle-pops is afraid of.

Could be that all the members hadn't finished there pretend crying 101 course?  Who knows, but good question.

Re: Interesting hearing

What did Nancy know and when did she know it? That question is not allowed. Who planted the pipe bombs? They seem uninterested.

Re: Interesting hearing

Why is it political?

Why wouldn't all people want to know who organized the people involved in the insurrection ?

I see by this article most of the Republicans are trying to stop it.

Is that because they were behind the insurrection? so they do not want the truth to come out.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-57989578

The inquiry in the House Select committee is being conducted almost entirely by Democrats, after most Republicans boycotted the proceedings.

However, two Republicans - Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger - have broken ranks to join the investigation.

"If those responsible are not held accountable... this will remain a cancer on our constitutional republic," Ms Cheney said as the hearing began on Tuesday.

The nine-member select committee was formed after Republicans objected to an independent commission such as the one that investigated the 11 September 2001 attacks.

You would think everyone would want to find out how and why the insurrection breached your legislature,'The only time since the British did nearly 200 years ago I think and these were your own citizens trying to upset your legal election process. To stop your democracy from working and force their agenda counter to why the voters wanted.

Do you suppose it is related to how your previous president got selected even though millions more voters wanted Ms Clinton?

Re: Interesting hearing

The enquiry should be able to find answers to those questions so I take it you support the enquiry.

Without digging into who was behind it you may never find out who was responsible for the bombs.

BTW I understood the bombs did not go off or they might have left fewer police to protect the legislature that the protestors breached so it would look like they were part of the insurrectionists plan to attack the building and kill your elected officials perhaps on the gallows they erected which of course shows more preparations and planning by someone

All of this was inevitable when tfg lied about winning by millions of votes in ‘16 and played coy about whether he’d respect the results of future elections.

Oh no. You just have TDS.

And of course the cowardice of the GQP and the evil in the hearts of the base.

This is not about finding answers. This is about painting all conservatives as domestic terrorist.

Re: Interesting hearing

The only two conservatives are on the panel.

The rest of the delegation are just cult cowards.
