When asked why he couldn’t support a commission to investigate the attack on the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said that the investigation would just be used as a partisan tool to further bash ex-president Donald Trump and against the Republican Party. The statement was laughable considering the amount of time since being elected that Jordan has spent doing “work” on his Benghazi commission, but the irony didn’t seem to occur to him.

One Republican not lost in his own irony is Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who released a statement in support of an investigation committee, formed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), into the events of January 6. Unlike his colleagues, Kinzinger has been a vocal critic of the opposition to such a commission.

‘With the number of conspiracy theories being perpetuated by media outlets and spreading wildly online, we have to push back with the facts and ensure what happened on January 6th never happens again…we cannot let fear stop us from doing what is right.’

An investigation will look into the origins of the insurrection, including how they were organized and who may have been involved. Since there is evidence that some members of the U.S. government have connections to those individuals who led the attack – Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is featured in a video prior to the attack harassing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (R-NY) office door along with a man who was involved in the insurrection – and there is rumored to be even more connections – Reps. Gosar (R-AZ) and Riggs (R-AZ) have been accused of having helped plan the insurrection, among others – a commission is likely to reveal some very negative information about those congressmen voting against its formation.

Twitter was quick to thank Kinzinger for standing against his party and doing the right thing. Read some of their comments below:
