    Hell why not just appoint Reid, Obama, Holder, Hillary, and herself in a special "all in" committee..

    Mornin VM. Well Pelosi picked people that can take up time and deflect.....especially Cummings. He is real good going off tangent and far left field.

    They've already projected why they are there, and that is to whine, deflect, and basically sabotage the committee.

    The theatrics haven't worked up to this point, and I dont think they will help here either.

    if the democrat's only cared about theatrics, the democrats would have just chosen 5 random members of their caucus to be part of the select committee, not 5 members who were ranking members of house committee's, and had participated in other inquiries.

    would you rather have 7 republicans and no democrats be on the committee.

    You honestly believe if the roles were reversed, Pelosi would allow 6 Republicans instead of 5?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
