On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Senior Editor Christopher Bedford joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to recap why Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 committee is a deeply unserious attempt by the Democrats to drudge up political animosity.
“There’s an ongoing Capitol police investigation and there’s an ongoing FBI investigation right now so there’s actually no reason for this,” Bedford explained. “Which is why it just needs to be handled by the Republicans, they need to treat it exactly as it is. It is fundamentally unserious theater, it is a prop, it’s completely fake, it’s acting, it’s pathetic, and it’s scornful of the American people. But at the same time, Republicans are in a bind and Democrats know this because if you’re talking about it you’re losing.”
The Democrats’ tunnel vision on the Capitol riot, Bedford said, is hurting their ability to address any of the other pressing issues in the country such as inflation and crime.
“It’s going to be tough for Democrats to get over this. I think they’re actually shooting themselves in the foot with their fanatical devotion to this strange new religion…none of their policies are working,” Bedford said.
