67. Yes, Troy Nehls.

Pelosi said (sorry, I can't find it) that voting against certification wasn't disqualifying.

But McCarthy had expected her to also reject Nehls. In his prewritten speech, which he gave later, McCarthy referred to Pelosi "Denying the voices of members who have served in the military and law enforcement" -- "law enforcement" was Nehls. McCarthy didn't bother to rewrite his speech.

Abby Phillip credited this decision by Pelosi (a perfectly reasonable one) with turning the hearing into a circus. Of course McCarthy turned it into a circus long ago, and his minions are continuing what he started. All republicans OBVIOUSLY. But she blamed Pelosi.

26. Gym Jordan show ABSOLUTELY No respect for the institution He's a loud mouth who thinks dress codes..

... should apply to him. I don't believe I have ever seen him in a dress coat. What's up with the white shirt and a yellow tie. Does he think he is still a coach?

I know that is a small thing but to me, it's a flashing light the says I have no respect for the traditions of the institution.

I guess we are lucky that he doesn't wear a whistle on a lanyard as part of his daily attire.

I'm glad she called foul and kick him off the committee.

Finally, call him to testify UNDER OATH. If he lies censure his a$$!

47. McCarthy always knew Pelosi had retained this option.

The general consensus was she wouldn't use it because it would "politicize" the committee too much - like Jordan and what's his name didn't do that just by being appointed. Besides Kinsinger who I think would be a good replacement, I believe she can add ex-representatives like Denver Riggelman who has excellent security credentials and although being a nominal Republican actually thinks for himself. If the other 3 reps pull out, she can replace them with other ex representatives. She should have them lined up in case. I think there are other Republicans who aren't trolls will be acceptable to most mainstream Americans.

64. Speaker Pelosi is correct - the Slobfather awarded Jordan the Presidential Medal of Freedom

for supporting his coup and the election lies and for defending him during the Mueller hearings. Note the date

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-defender-ohio-rep-jim-jordan-get-presidential-medal-freedom-n1253737

Jan. 11, 2021, 2:53 PM -05 / Updated Jan. 11, 2021, 8:39 PM -05
By Corky Siemaszko
President Donald Trump announced Monday that he was awarding the presidential medal of freedom to Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, a pugnacious Republican ally in Congress who continues to back the president even after the deadly rampage last week by a pro-Trump mob through the Capitol.

Jordan received the nation’s highest civilian award from a lame-duck and increasingly isolated president who has just nine days left in office and who faces the humiliation of a possible second impeachment before President-elect Joe Biden takes office.

A sharp-elbowed Trump defender, Jordan helped lead the GOP attack on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference. His harsh interrogations of witnesses — plus his refusal to wear a jacket while doing so — made him both a national figure and lightning rod for critics.

In announcing the award, the White House praised Jordan for, among other things, his work to "unmask the Russia hoax and take on Deep State corruption" and for his efforts to "confront the impeachment witch hunt."
