A vote was held on the floor of the House yesterday regarding a 9/11-style commission to investigate the Capitol protest on January 6.
All of the far-Left Democrats voted for it. That’s no surprise.
But a massive 35 of the House Republicans also voted in favor.
This would make no sense for a loyal pro-Trump Republican, because the commission is an obvious attempt to investigate and go after Trump supporters.
But if you’re a RINO, aiding and abetting a radical left-wing agenda, it makes perfect sense.
Today the U.S. House of Representatives voted to hold a 9/11-style commission into the civil unrest and mostly peaceful protests that occurred on January 6 in and around the U.S. Capitol. The vote was 252-175, with 35 Republicans joining every present Democrat in a vote to start the commission.
Some of the Republicans who voted alongside Democrats are Reps. Tom Rice (R-SC), Dan Newhouse (R-WA), Tom Reed (R-NY), Peter Meijer (R-MI), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), John Katko (R-NY), Dusty Johnson (R-SD), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH), Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), Chris Jacobs (R-NY), Steve Womack (R-AR), Stephanie Bice (R-OK), Andrew Garbarino (R-NY), Liz Cheney (R-WY), David Valadao (R-CA), Chris Smith (R-NJ), Fred Upton (R-MI), Marianette Miller-Meeks (R-IA).National File
10 of these Representatives voted in favor of impeaching Donald Trump for insurrection, so their names are no surprise.
Those would be Reps. Newhouse, Meijer, Kinzinger, Katko, Valadao, Cheney, Upton, Gonzalez, Rice, and Beutler.
Those 10 were among the top primary targets for 2022, but now it looks like there’s 25 more names on the list.
In a way, it’s good that these RINOs are revealing themselves ahead of the midterms.
It gives patriots time to organise and select challengers to run against them.
But what’s more interesting is that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy chose not to support this, after President Trump insisted he oppose it.
And yet these stubborn RINOs still went along and voted for it.
The number of Republicans becomes especially notable when considering that – at President Donald Trump’s insistence – both House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell indicated they would not support such a commission, and thus, neither should members of the Republican Party in their respective chambers.National File
It’s this arrogance of theirs which is another major reason to primary them in 2022.
They need to be reminded they were put there to be our servants, not to pursue their own agendas.
And if that’s not good enough for them, it’s time they left office.
