Fox News viewers could not believe what they were seeing.
Someone they counted on betrayed them.
Tucker Carlson destroyed this Republican over one backroom deal with Nancy Pelosi.
New York Congressman John Katko is the top Republican on the Homeland Security Committee.
Katko also was one of ten Republicans voting to impeach Donald Trump.
So it was odd that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tasked Congressman Katko to negotiate a deal on a bipartisan “commission” to investigate the January 6 incident at the Capitol.
Katko came back with a “deal” that smelled like a rat to many conservatives.
While Pelosi acceded to Republican demands for a 50/50 split on the 10 member commission and both parties having an input on subpoena power, many wondered why Pelosi – a fierce negotiator – gave in so quickly.
Tucker Carlson explained why in exposing the shoddy deal Kato negotiated.
Carlson ripped the commission as a farce and a political power play by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden.
“People like Congressman John Katko of New York – he’s the top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee – is [sic] apparently pushing for this 9-11 style commission. One anonymous House Republican told The Hill that anywhere from between 30 and 50 Republicans might join Katko in voting for this farce. What are they voting for? They’re voting to give Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden more power – power they do not deserve, power they did not win in November. Republican voters deserve to know the names of every congressional Republican who votes for this farce, for the myth-making that is being used right now to strip you of your constitutional rights. They should know which of their representatives is playing along with this poisonous hoax. And we hope they will learn soon.” Carlson stated.
Pelosi may be many things, but she is not stupid.
It was easy for Pelosi to give in on the composition of the committee and its subpoena power because both of those variables because Pelosi knows they are irrelevant to her end goal.
Pelosi just wants a commission that Republicans vote for so they can’t criticize as a partisan witch hunt when the Democrats weaponize the commission’s report as the template for their 2022 campaign commercials.
History says Republicans should win back the House and that the GOP has a strong chance of taking the Senate.
Pelosi and the Democrats are counting on the commission to sully the GOP – and the man likely to be Speaker if the Republicans win back the House Kevin McCarthy – with the “objective” report labeling the party seditionists and traitors for objecting to the 2020 election the same the Democrats have objected to every Presidential election won by the Republicans in the 21st century.
