Rep. Tim Ryan Lashes Out At Republican Lawmakers Who Oppose The Jan. 6 Commission.


Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) has had it with Republican House members who have slammed a proposed bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the United States Capitol by pro-Trump insurrectionists.

Ryan chastised those who voted against the commission after thanking those in the GOP who supported it. 35 Republicans eventually broke ranks and voted in favor of the commission.

“Holy cow! Incoherence! I have no idea what you're talking about,” Ryan exclaimed, his voice rising in anger as he pointed to the most obvious and glaring hypocrisy: the never-ending Republican-led investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“Benghazi!” he exclaimed, “you chased the former secretary of state all over the country and spent millions of dollars.”

He added:

“We have people scaling the Capitol and hitting Capitol Police with lead pipes across the head, and we can't get bipartisanship? What else has to happen in this country?” Cops! This is a slap in the face to every rank-and-file cop in the United States.

Although the bill passed the House by a vote of 252-175, it now faces a filibuster in the Senate, where Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is among those who oppose it.
