As the Jan. 6 House committee continues to attempt to paint former President Donald Trump in a negative light, pushing a narrative that he instigated the Capitol riots, Republicans are cooking up a big pot of revenge stew.
According to Axios, after the party likely takes back majority control of the lower chamber, a number of Republicans have vowed to launch a “full investigation” into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the Jan. 6 committee next year as a top agenda priority.
The threat comes as the 1/6 committee has already completed a number of televised hearings, all of which make Trump and his closest advisers out to be essentially planners of the violence that took place on Jan. 6 at the Capitol building.
Axios reported: “On June 9, Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), the top Republican on the committee that oversees Capitol security and election reforms, said a GOP-controlled House Administration Committee would launch a’full investigation’ into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Jan. 6 committee as one of its top priorities next year.”
“When Republicans retake the majority, we will exercise our oversight responsibilities including subpoena authority to review all transcripts and information that the committee has access to in order to identify the truth,” a top GOP House staffer reportedly told Axios.
Many on the right have called into question the House speaker’s actions on that day, claiming that Pelosi purposely waiting to call in the National Guard to quell the rioting situation, though her camp has strongly denied such allegations.
Don’t shut the January 6th Committee down when the GOP wins the majority, take it over and focus on the REAL questions that we need answered.
1. Why didn’t Pelosi approve Trump’s National Guard troops?
2. Who is Ray Epps? Did the FBI have a role?
3. Why was Ashli Babbitt shot?

Others believe that the committee only exists to try to justify an indictment against Mr. Trump in order to keep his name off of the 2024 presidential ballot.
Only time will tell what happens, but one thing’s for sure: Republicans are not letting this go anytime soon.
