The one way you can be sure that RepubliQans are lying when they try to blame the attempted VIOLENT TREASONOUS COUP against the United States on PROgressives (or the mythical ANTIFA or whatever else) is that if they really believed that, THEY would be the ones clamoring for an investigation.
They tell us they want to “move forward” and not “back” at January 6, while THEY are obsessed with trying to peddle the BIG LIE about Trump “winning” an election HE LOST BY MORE THAN SEVEN MILLION VOTES, or Obama or Bill Clinton or, heck, they go all the way back to blaming everything on FDR. They want us to “get over January 6th” when January 6th was all about THEM not being able to “get over” November 3rd.
The biggest reason they don’t want to investigate what happened on January 6 is that it was a planned (THEY HAD SHIRTS MADE), premeditated ACT OF TREASON and many of their own House members were actively complicit in the planning, giving reconnaissance “tours” and who knows what else.
The same ones who cowered in terror and helped barricade the doors are now dismissing a violent attack as “ordinary tourists.”
The good news is that, while the Senate can block the formation of an INDEPENDENT BIPARTISAN COMMISSION, they cannot prevent the formation of House and Senate SELECT HEARINGS with full subpoena power, and TrumpubliQans can no longer hide behind a complicit Jeff Sessions / William Barr “justice” department that will look the other way when subpoenas are ignored.
