Dir. James Comer has a brilliant idea of how to shed light on what happened before, during, and after the U.S. Capitol Riot on January 6 - and prevent it from happening again. The best thing to do, in my opinion, is to have an independent commission that let us know who will attend, he told CNN's Pam Brown in an interview on Wednesday . That doesn't need to 'being political people. Really ... it's intriguing! This sounds a lot like the independent commission that Comer, a Republican from Kentucky House, voted against in the House . And that Senate Republicans - directed by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell - - stuck in Senate . Actually, it's not a lot like this proposition. It 's that ' s this proposition. Go to language of the legislation, which was passed by the House in May with 35 Republican votes (plus every Democratic vote). He makes it clear that the commission would have 10 members, with Democratic leaders in Congress nominating five and Republican leaders nominating five. The committee would be chaired by two co-chairs - one each chosen by the Speaker of the House and the House Minority Leader. Well, the legislation is pretty specific about ittoo. (Bold font is mine.) A person appointed to the Commission cannot be an agent or employee of any government institution, read the texts of the invoice . Congress believes that those appointed to the Commission should be distinguished US citizens, with national recognition. THE POINT - NOW ON YOUTUBE! In each episode of his weekly YouTube show, Chris Cillizza I dive a little deeper into the surreal world of politics. Click to subscribe! It's in the bill! None sitting member of Congress! The proposal of Committee 1/6 was expressly modeled on the independent panel of Congress created to study the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. This group was chaired by two former elected officials - former New Jersey Governor Tom Kean and the Former Indiana Representative Lee Hamilton - but had a wide variety of other members, including Fred Fielding, a former attorney for the Maison Blanche, and former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman.Comer is, to put it mildly, totally and utterly wrong. He voted against a bill that would have done exactly what he said he wanted on Wednesday! Which then explains Comer's statement? There are two options: 1) He just didn't know what was in the bill he voted against 2) He takes us all for fools - assuming we can't or don't want to go back and check the recording of his vote. Neither looks great, although I guess the first option is slightly better; Comer was misinformed rather than malicious. The end result, however, is the same. Comer voted against a measure that would have done exactly what he now says he thinks was the best way to deal with the January riots on Capitol Hill.slightly bad.
