WATCH: Jake Tapper predicts McCarthy will try a 1/6 investigation by calling folks like Taylor Greene, Jordan, on the committee.
For the past 5 years, Donald Trump and his makers have done everything to protect Trump from any consequences for his actions. But now that the Democrats are in charge of the White House, House and Senate, their ability to do so is slowly waning.
The House of Representatives will shortly hold a commission on what led to and during the January 6 insurrection. And while Republicans can't stop it, Jake Tapper predicted Kevin McCarthy can sabotage it.
During a panel discussion, Gloria Borger said: “T.The bottom line is Donald Trump will hate that Commission, one way or another, because it will talk about it what happened that day and keep it to what happened that day is his Conversation with McCarthy. Y.You have alluded to it before: "Well, Kevin, I think these people which means that the insurgents are more upset about the choice than you, ”to which McCarthy said Who the "F" do you think I am? and so on went on this and back and forth when he testifies under oath, he have to tell the truth about it. "

Tapper asked: "What are the chances of that Mccarthy, that is – that is will happen right? Democrats have a majority. What are the odds that McCarthy sets, you know, a number of Members of his brink jerk Caucus on this committee. "The host then named people like Marjorie Taylor Greene and Jim Jordan.
Nia Malika Henderson then said: “Y.eah. I think he can name two members I think and then he has a say who the deputy chairman is also like that You can pack this committee with you all sorts of people who would touting the lie. "
This is clearly a strategy McCarthy could try. The GOP is not interested in receiving replies beyond January 6th. Mocking the hearing might be the way they go.
