House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan in creating the highly partisan “United States House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol” – its official name – was to have a “political indictment” of former President Trump and every Republican officeholder and voter in the hope of preventing a GOP takeover of the House and even the Senate in the 2022 elections.  

That is the reason for all the hyperbole about insurrections, sedition, treason and attempted coups.  Any Republican victory – even for a small-town school board — is an existential threat to the Republic according to the Democrat song sheet.  It all has the stench of political chicanery based on desperation.  Democrats are losing the issues debate on the economy, on foreign policy and on the cultural issues.  So, they are resorting to hyperbolic fearmongering based on specious political narratives.

As the headline suggests, the work of Pelosi’s Select Committee is not likely to reach a real comprehensive conclusion – hearing all the witnesses and compiling all the information.  But you can rest assured that prior to the midterm election the Committee WILL issue a report.  It will be most damning of the Democrat’s political enemies – which is virtually all Americans who do not subscribe to the radical left.

Of course, the elitist bubble-encapsulated east coast media will give the report maximum coverage – as they have been doing and will be doing between now and then.

Ironically, the Select Committee may never hear from the witness they say are most critical to their investigation – referring to those who have so far questioned the legitimacy of the subpoenas they received.

In the lead of that group is on-again/off-again Trump advisor Steve Bannon.  The Select Committee has persuaded the full House to send a criminal referral over to the Justice Department – and Attorney General Merrick Garland has indicted Bannon.

As Shakespeare penned, “Therein lies the rub.”  If you have not noticed, They have set the date for Bannon’s trial.  It is to start on … July 18, 2022.  That right!  There is more time between now and the start of the trial than from the trial to the midterm elections.

Now consider these possibilities – things that are very common in court cases.  The trial, itself, could be postponed for any number of reasons.  But let us assume that it gets done in a week or so.  That puts it into August – often considered the start of the serious campaigning.

Let us also assume that Bannon gets convicted.  That means a likely appeal.  And that alone would put the final decision by the federal courts beyond the 2022 election.  Ergo no testimony from Bannon before the election.  Pelosi may have to concoct her pre-ordained findings without the allegedly most critical witnesses.

And what about some of the other essential witnesses – such as former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.  Then there are those who will appear and plead the Fifth Amendment. That means no information for the Select Committee – although it will be great optics for Pelosi & Co.  And after all, that IS what it is all about.  And there may be others who will reject Pelosi’s future subpoenas.  

As of this writing, the Select Committee has not even made any criminal referrals other than Bannon.  Consider that when the Criminal Referral on Bannon was sent over to the Department of Justice, it took 27 days before an indictment was issued by the DOJ and another 22 days before a trial date was set.

If they move against Meadows at the same pace, he will not even get a trial date until February with the trial unlikely before the election – and that clock is not even ticking yet.  

It may even take longer to move the Meadows case along because he has a better case for Executive Privilege – and he has filed countersuits against Pelosi and the Select Committee.  This will be a tangle of legal questions over the extent of Executive Privilege that may have to be settled by the Supreme Court – and that COULD take the issue into mid-2023 unless it was expedited.

While the left-leaning media is giving Pelosi’s Select Committee maximum favorable exposure on a day-to-day basis – even when there are no new developments to report – it does appear from polls and viewership, that the general public may be getting weary of the whole thing – even seeing through the Democrats obsessive hammering on their narrow political narratives.   

This entire Select Committee thing is starting to play out like a very long boring movie that we have seen before.  It will be interesting to see how creative Pelosi can be when she has to issue the Select Committee finding – and how credible they will be.

So, there ‘tis.

  1. The whole committee was set up by Pelosi as a third impeachment of Trump, again whether he did it or not ( Just like the first 2 ) in order to find a way to keep him from running for President or any office. I believe she is afraid that if Trump is re-elected. He will have investigations done into the 2020 Election. Who was really behind The Jan 6th incident, as well as who was behind the Covid-19 Pandemic, and most of it may sit in Pelosis lap.

  2. That woman keeps throwing our tax dollars in the toilet! Is there any lagal way we can take that money out of their salaries and return it to where it should be? The Democrats are still stuck on Trump and that won’t change. When will people start demanding that all these sore loosers become investagative material [this includes Biden Harris] for the Republicans? Of course we have to wait until we win the midterms and get the divisive hate mongers and Rino’s out of those chambers where the cheat and lie about what’s best for them.

  3. I have thought all along that the Covid-19 hoax, and it is becoming more and more obvious of the word hoax being pretty darn accurate, that the alleged pandemic was the last desperate act of the democRAT communist party to “get rid of Trump” because everything else the democRAT communists tried had failed, miserably. With the very close connections of the Biden family members to China, how convenient that the virus GOF manipulation was done in China and yes, released by Wuhan Chinese citizens visiting all over the globe in late 2019. Hopefully, documents, emails or other digital information will be found to make it obvious to the world who really created the pandemic that has killed millions of people so far and most likely millions more. due to a poison shot sent around the world. Evil this monumental must be dealt with in a monumental way. .
