Sean Hannity asked one question about the January 6 Committee that turned it upside down

The January 6 Committee is a witch hunt.

Many critics contend it is nothing more than the third impeachment of Donald Trump.

And now Sean Hannity asked one question about the January 6 Committee that turned it upside down.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy boycotted the January 6 Committee after Nancy Pelosi kicked Republicans Jim Jordan and Jim Banks off the panel.

Since Jordan and Banks are two of the most effective communicators and investigators in the Republican caucus, Nancy Pelosi kicked them off the Committee out of fear they would blow up the narrative her hand-picked Trump haters wanted to create.

McCarthy then pulled his three remaining selections, reasoning that there was no point in validating a partisan phishing expedition.

But as the Committee proceeded, not having any pro-Trump voices allowed members to cherry pick snippets of video and testimony to paint a false narrative about Donald Trump and January 6 without any pushback.

In an interview on his Fox News show, Sean Hannity asked McCarthy if it was a mistake not to include any actual Republican on the Committee.

Donald Trump also made this argument in a recent interview with Punchbowl News.

“I think in retrospect, I think it would have been very smart to put [Republicans on the committee] and again, I wasn’t involved in it from a standpoint, so I never looked at it too closely. But I think it would have been good if we had representation,” Trump stated. “I think in retrospect [McCarthy should’ve put Republicans on] to just have a voice. The Republicans don’t have a voice. They don’t even have anything to say.”

“There have been questions asked, once they pulled Jim Jordan and Jim Banks, why didn’t you replace them with other people?” Hannity stated. “In retrospect, should you have?”

McCarthy refused to budge, noting that even if his five picks were on the Committee, the seven Democrats hand-selected by Nancy Pelosi would control the panel’s subpoena power and never would have allowed Republicans into the room to cross-examine key witnesses.

“No, not at all,” McCarthy answered. “Because nothing would be different. Think of this: It’s only the majority who has subpoena power. They would never allow Republicans into those meetings when they interview the individuals. All they would be is the American people would sit up there, and they would think this is a fair process.”
