House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Democrat Party have been routed by Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Republicans who shut down the January 6th commission.
The Democrat House bill to create a commission that would investigate the January 6th riot at the Capitol was crushed as Democrats failed to get the votes they needed to override a filibuster.
Republican resistance to the commission was bolstered by support from former President Donald Trump, who urged McConnell to stand strong and resist “the Radical Left.”
This event has been the biggest win for Republicans since they lost power in the 2020 election. Despite not holding power in the House or the Senate, they are managing to put up an effective resistance to the radical Democrat agenda.
Republicans know that a commission into the January 6th riot would do nothing but demonize Republicans and Trump supporters over an event that has been blown out of proportion.
Democrats believe that the January 6th riot was the worst thing to happen in American since the Civil War. The reality is that the riot was a meaningless event that palls in comparison to the riots and unrest that gripped the country last summer.
