McCarthy Could Face Humiliating Defeat If Jan. 6 Commission Bill Passes

So, Jake I've been glued to your twitter
feed and I just want to read that you're reporting on this, so you've tweeted the senate cleared it.
McCarthy, McConnell could have appointed
whoever they wanted to the panel and they would have done the leadership's bidding on the commission. 

Now Pelosi will just
empower her committees to investigate January 6. They will have unilateral subpoena power no republicans say house GOP expects upwards of 20 defections when the bill gets to the floor.
McConnell says he's undecided and signals he wants to look at it more. Why does McCarthy is so the plan is just to obstruct the investigation into the
capital insurrection.

You know Nicole I'll bring you up to
speed because some of those tweets are outdated although not really so, McCarthy says he doesn't he'd said he
didn't like the scope of the investigation of the probe he was a party to the negotiations that John Katco (to your right (of course?) had with democrats so he was kept in the loop and then as soon as Katco cut a deal he
threw Katco under the bus, a few things to point out, yes there will be a lot of  defections so this bill is going to pass the house. 
Mitch McConnell, I I can't read his mind but he seemed open to this to this commission so if it gets through the senate this will be a humiliating defeat for Kevin McCarthy, Um and if it gets through the house with a bunch of republican votes that will
also be a pretty humiliating defeat for  Kevin McCarthy. 
The only goal here basically and I'm trying and I'm giving him the benefit of the benefit of the doubt, but the only Uh goal I could see that McCarthy is trying to achieve here is appeasing Trump, and is not having his fingerprints all over that's McCarthy all over this committee that will invariably be pretty bad for Donald Trump and could be pretty bad for other republican members of the house McCarthy obviously spoke to Trump that day on January 6th.

But, but the
point I was also making Nicole is:
It seems short-sighted to oppose this if you're republicans because Pelosi has given in to all the
republican demands here, she has given them equal representation on the committee republicans, she has given republicans a say in subpoena power and if Pelosi does go revert to the committees meaning run this investigation through the oversight
committee or the homeland security committee that will be a a structure in which republicans don't have a say, so they could have their hands on the process or not McCarthy has suggested that he would rather not have his hands on the process, which from an internal point of view is pretty embarrassing, but
at this hour Nicole and I'm going to go report pretty soon at the house at the house vote I do believe there's going to be a large number of defections on this bill tomorrow when it gets to the floor, the
number we don't know, we've heard anywhere from 20 to 40 it comes to a point where Um if you get a bunch of defections you could have a ton of republicans just jailbreak and vote for the whole thing, so a lot of really interesting dynamics here and to answer the core of your question I just really do think that republican leadership wants to again
like we talked about last week with Liz Cheney move on from January 6th, and those same human beings Um had a complete opposite reaction when the threat was foreign terrorists. What do you think
Kevin McCarthy wants to protect Donald Trump from you said he wanted to protect Donald Trump from what?
My guess is Um listen this this committee would be
outside experts right it wouldn't be members of congress, so theoretically these outside experts could could compel Trump to testify, they can compel people around Trump to testify and they could this committee could finally after a long time Uh put together the the what happened that day on
republicans are trying to take back the majority
and trying to leave this insurrection on this building I'm standing in. In the rearview mirror it's not a
terribly helpful thing to have what would be a a commission investigating this until the end of the year. 
This bill Nicole, calls for an investigation until the end of 2021. That's that's a pretty large chunk of time to find the truth, to get to the bottom of things.
And some people on the investigative side don't think it's nearly long enough, the 911 commission had much longer. I want to just press you on one more thing, you had some of the best reporting about the undercurrents between Liz Cheney and
Kevin McCarthy having frankly as much to do about what she's been saying in interviews over the weekend about Kevin McCarthy needing to be
subpoenaed and needing to tell investigators exactly what he knows about what Donald Trump was doing, what Donald Trump knew, is that in hindsight what led to the purge of her and his leadership team as much as or more than her refusal to go along with a Big Lie? 
Well, I I think that there was Uh the relationship between McCarthy and Cheney was absolutely broken and Cheney and I in com I've had
conversations with her, endless conversations with her about this very topic about her her just fervent,
fervent Uh desire for the January 6th commission
and for an honest January 6th commission and I I'm not sure she had ever at least publicly connected the dots between subpoena and McCarthy or the eventual subpoena of McCarthy but she had been I mean she at that Orlando retreat where their relationship kind of all fell apart, Cheney said disagreed publicly with McCarthy about the scope which was shocking to a lot of people because there they were at this at this retreat in Orlando trying to get on the same page and Liz Cheney was jumping off another page and jumping onto the page of many democrats and frankly what many
republicans had been saying quietly so I think that
all of that put together was the undoing of that relationship because she said she wanted to get to
the bottom of January 6th an event by the way for which she voted to impeach Donald Trump.


No Need for me to Illustrate the Obvious Hypocrisy, can it be McCarthy just does not want to be Forced to Testify...? What's your Take...?
