    Default “The GOP pushed Benghazi probes for years. It’s already done with Jan. 6.”

    “Republicans spent years pushing for investigation after investigation of the tragedy in Benghazi, Libya. But when it comes to the Jan. 6 insurrection, they’re already very much over it.”

    “That verdict was particularly striking given Congress hasn’t actually produced any big investigative products. They had held hearings, yes, but the first big report on intelligence and security failures, a bipartisan product of the Senate, wouldn’t arrive for another two weeks. Despite this, less than five months after the insurrection, Republicans don’t see the need to look into how this happened.”

    “Perhaps most tellingly, it’s a huge contrast to how the party viewed the Benghazi investigations. For months and years after the 2012 attack Fox News’s pollsters asked questions about people’s appetite for investigating it, and Republicans’ appetite was voracious and long-lasting.”

    “In June 2017 Fox News asked a similar question again. And lo and behold: 65 percent of Republicans still said it was either “extremely” or “very” important that the investigations into Benghazi continue. This was just shy of five years after the attack, after six congressional investigations, including a select committee run by Republicans that had concluded its work.”

    Bottom line is that the right wants January 6th to disappear as quickly as possible because, even if they won’t admit it, they know the real truth and their Messiah’s role in it

    The more the RepubliQans whine about the Jan 6 investigation, the guiltier they look.

    When the truth comes out, they know they're fucked. They can no longer protect their King Trump.

    The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn't care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.

    Every single Republicans here (except Dutch) supports, condones or overlooks their own party's violent treason and attempts to illegally overturn the US Presidential election
    by physical coup de etat, and by opposing 2 meritorious trials after successful impeachments. Nothing they say matters on any political subject whatsoever until they own it, apologize and renounce
    Trump and his ilk (all house and Senate Rs save three). The preceding behavior amounts to your declaration of war on the United States.

    So "Fuck you" is my standing debate point, you fucking traitors. It wins all debates.

    And none of that changes nor reflects anything on the point of the thread, “The GOP pushed Benghazi probes for years. It’s already done with Jan. 6.”

    The "probes" into both by the respective sides are purely political and anyone with an ounce of sense could/can see it.

    People who are guilty of committing crimes are reluctant to have investigations of those crimes. Trump planned and carried out an insurrection and he had been assisted by several Republican politicians. That is exactly why they are fighting an investigation.
    The Trump revolution was televised. The red's only salvation is in hiding it.

    None to you apparently. To Americans who care about Constitutional government it makes a difference in recognizing and squashing the legitimacy implicit in whitewashing a violent attempt to supplant Constitutional government with third world "Chief of State" tyranny, as Judge Jackson explained yesterday in sentencing one of Trump's mob.
    White lives matter but are overrated.

    They also know there are Rep. and Senators whose roles don’t look good at all.
