To the editor: Flip and Flop, also known as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Republican) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Republican Bakersfield), may support bipartisan committees in the January 6 rebellion It was previously suggested that there is. Now they don’t..

Still under the control of Donald Trump, they are clearly afraid of retaliation by the former president and his base.

Republicans want to “go ahead” from January 6th, but the dirt of the day will remain in history books forever. Are they afraid we know the responsibilities of their party members, and perhaps even their cooperation with the rebels?

The Republican Party’s sole goal is to maintain the Republican Party. Not so much, it protects our democracy.

To the editor: The only reason I can think of why McCarthy and other Republicans oppose the January 6th Commission is that Trump turns out to be engaged in some conspiracy or worse. Because they believe.

If there was even the possibility of a public exemption, Republicans would, if not, demand the Commission. The fact that they are not tells you everything you need to know.

Once again, the Republicans had the opportunity to choose the truth over Trump, and again it failed altogether.

To the editor: Times Editorial Board Rebuke McCarthy correctly “Returned to a more comfortable role, apparently by Trump’s acolytes and defensive scholars.”

For years, Republicans have complained about welfare recipients. Meanwhile, from the time of his oath of office, Mr. Trump has shown that there are more ways to avoid personal liability than anyone could have imagined.

Nevertheless, McCarthy and other Republicans continued to support the president, making excuses after excuses and lying after lies.

As a result, our former Republican President has become one of the largest unjustified welfare recipients in history.
