House Speaker McCarthy HAD to give his caucus members something to get his spot….
That was the possible spotlight for their own….
This appears to be a ‘payback’ against Democrats, who hit media home runs with their Jan. 6 Capitol Hearings .
Their have started off slow and almost invisible in the media…..
The GOPer’s will be carrying the water for ex-President Donald Trump who is being investigated for criminality by two states and the Dept. of Justice….A US President that tried to subvert the very government he swore on a bible to ‘protect’ seems to be getting help in his possible criminal cases defense?

It sits within the Justice Department, which is currently investigating efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election by Trump and his inner circle, including his congressional allies. In its final report, the Jan. 6 committee stated that Jordan “was a significant player in President Trump’s efforts.”…
