COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

Foolish Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others on the left are pushing for a “9/11-type” commission to probe the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol. But it sounds like they really want a politicized panel looking to make hay of the assault. It would be great to have a truly neutral probe of what went wrong that day — one that all Americans could trust to dig up and share all the facts. But the 9/11 attacks are a loaded and ludicrous analogy to the Capitol chaos. The only real similarity is that each was a shock — an event no Americans expected to ever see. But the scale of the Jan. 6 assault was far smaller than the horrors of 9/11.
Worse, Pelosi and Hillary Clinton appear to want to probe, for the umpteenth time, the possibility of Trump-Russia collusion behind the turmoil. “There is strong interest in a 9/11-type outside commission” to review the Capitol rioting, Pelosi said Friday. She reaffirmed that in a weekend podcast with Clinton, who added that she hopes to find out who former President Donald Trump’s “beholden to, who pulls his strings.”
“I would love to see his phone records to see whether he was talking to Putin the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol,” huffed Clinton. “All roads lead to Putin,” Pelosi responded. No, they don’t — not then and not now. The FBI, the House and the Senate all searched for collusion and found none. Special Counsel Robert Mueller spent years and came up empty. Yet Pelosi and Clinton — and others — are still harping on it as if there were legitimate evidence behind the theory.
And nothing suggests a foreign role in the Jan. 6 attack: Sadly, modern Americans are capable of such madness all by themselves. Nor did the assault ever have any chance of stopping Joe Biden from becoming president. Yes, it’s important to identify the roots of the Capitol invasion as well as who was involved and how and why security failed so badly. But all evidence to date suggests it was no vast conspiracy à la 9/11 but something more like a tragedy of errors. If the nation is to move beyond Trump-era division, Democrats need to quit the conspiracy theories. Pelosi is trying to create an anti Trump, conservatives and Republicans prespective.
