I do not always agree with the decisions, or the pace, of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Today, I can only wholeheartedly agree on her decision to exclude Rep. Jordan of Ohio and Rep. Banks of Indiana from the January 6 Insurrection Select Committee.
Rep. Jordan and Banks did not, and do not, have the moral integrity or ethics to be a part of this solemn committee. Mr. Jordan has proven time and again he is nothing but a big bag of buffoonery and acts the fool just about every time he opens his mouth. He often makes me embarrassed to be a Buckeye. From the little I know about Mr. Banks, I think they are basically two peas in a pod.
Minority Leader McCarthy appointed them to grab headlines. He knew Ms. Pelosi would choose to deny they be on the committee, which is why he did it. Mr. McCarthy does not want the truth to be told about his party members’ complicity in the insurrection, directly or indirectly, to be made public. He’d rather play to the Republican base, the most basest of instincts, and show his fealty to the twice-impeached former guy, than be an actual leader.
There are times in which I wish Ms. Pelosi was Senator Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader right now. She has shown her gumption and tenacity often over the past couple of years as Speaker of the House. Senator Schumer should take note and follow her lead.
If he did, we might actually get some things done in both the House and the Senate.
Thank you Speaker Pelosi. Today you did good!
