House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to elevate the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol protest to the level of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, in which nearly 3,000 people were killed by Muslim terrorists.
It is part of a pattern of history-rewriting by top (and bottom) Democrats, trying to redefine their opposition as dangerous extremists though they are the ones who inflamed anti-Trump, Black-Lives-Matter chaos all through 2020 and are notoriously nonchalant about actual terrorism.
Pelosi is pushing legislation to create a probe of the MAGA “riot” modeled after the Sept. 11th commission – and it is likely to have subpoena power to probe its causes — as long as they have nothing to do with the stolen presidential election, most likely.
Among the issues it will likely seek to inflame, according to The Hill, is Trump’s phone call with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. The call was portrayed as a key piece of evidence on the last day of Trump’s second impeachment trial, which just like the first resulted in acquittal by the Senate.
The call while the demonstration was ongoing appeared to show Trump siding with his supporters, scandalously, whom he had addressed in person earlier in the day.
The Sept. 11th Commission, which Pelosi is consulting as the basis for what will be created, had broad subpoena power to obtain testimony and documents, and used it on at least one occasion to pry loose information from the Federal Aviation Administration.
