If Donald Trump’s enraged militia had been a few seconds earlier, a few feet closer, former Vice President Mike Pence’s body would still be swinging from the scaffolding’s noose. It would be a grim reminder for the people about the price of disobeying the dictator.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) would have been shot in the head. The Capitol and DC police’s bodies would lie where they fell, beaten to death in the harshest of ways with pipes, fire extinguishers, and worse. The blood of senators and representatives of both parties would stain the Senate and the House floors. Few if any would survive. Certainly, our democracy would fall.
Trump did not get away with his attempted coup on our free government. Pelosi will make sure of that. She announced that the House will form an “independent 9/11 type commission” for the January 6 insurrection. She has asked for additional money to provide vital security for Congressional members and security at the Capitol.
In a statement her office released, the Speaker wrote that the evidence which emerged during Trump’s impeachment trial deux and that which General Russel Honoré discovered meant “that we must get to the truth of how this happened.”
Pelosi explained about the commission:
‘[T]o protect our security, our security, our security [about] the facts and causes [during the] domestic terrorist attack [including those] related to the interference with the peaceful transfer of power [and] the preparedness and response.’
The Speaker ended with a promise to “put forth a supplemental appropriation to provide for the safety of members and the security of the Capitol.”
The Politico congressional reporter Andrew Desideria tweeted:
‘Pelosi says the House will take steps to form a 9/11-style commission to investigate the events of Jan. 6, and calls for a new round of funding for security of the Capitol and for lawmakers.’
The Associated Press also noted that it would be a ‘September 11-style commission:”
‘House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Congress will establish an independent, Sept. 11-style commission to look into the deadly insurrection that took place at the U.S. Capitol.’
Twitter world went wild when they saw the good news. Take a look at some of our favorites below:
