A significant majority of Republicans believe that liberal activists deserve more blame for the January 6 incident at the U.S. Capitol.

According to a survey from Public Religion Research Institute, 61 percent of Republicans place a lot of responsibility for the incident on liberal activists and Democrats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ January 6 commission is already starting to backfire.

According to an NBC News poll, only 59% say they are concerned about the protest on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol.

However, 40% say they are either just “somewhat concerned” (14 percent) or not concerned at all (26 percent).

A recent poll from Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey showed that 58 percent of voters believe her commission is biased towards Democrats, The Hill reported.

“Americans want an examination of the riots over the summer and the origins of the virus over investigating Jan. 6th,” co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey, Mark Penn, said. “The voters reject the Pelosi move to toss Republicans off of the committee and see it now as just a partisan exercise.”

The poll came after Pelosi would not seat Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and Jim Banks on the committee.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded by removing all of his Republican appointees from the committee, leaving Speaker Pelosi to select two anti-Donald Trump Republicans, Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, to represent the GOP.

They were appointed, with three other Republicans, by McCarthy days ago in an effort to cooperate with the Democrat-led committee as he was requested to do.

Back in July, Fox News host Tucker Carlson delivered a powerful segment asking a slew of important questions about Pelosi’s political investigation into January 6.

Carlson asked his viewers to consider one major detail: what role did the FBI play that day?

Carlson blasted the FBI and Democrats, saying, “Why is the Justice Department still tonight, hiding thousands of hours of footage from inside the Capitol that day? What could possibly be on that tape that we’re not allowed to see?”

“Who killed Ashli Babbitt and what was the justification for killing her? Government officials get to shoot unarmed protesters in the neck for trespassing and we’re not allowed to know who did it, or why? Is that really the new standard? Does that same standard apply to BLM supporters too, or just the people who voted for Donald Trump…people that don’t matter?” Carlson asked.

”What role did the FBI play that day? We know for certain there were FBI informants in the crowd at the Capitol. How many of them made it inside the Capitol and then encouraged others to break the law? Don’t pretend the FBI doesn’t stage crimes,” Carlson said.

Carlson continued: “We know for a fact they do it regularly. We know for a fact they right before the election in Michigan for political effect.”

“Every American has the right to hear the answers and hear them immediately. January 6th is being used as a pretext to strip millions of disfavored Americans of their core constitutional rights,” Carlson said.

“We are witnessing the most aggressive crackdown on civil liberties in our lifetime — that is not an exaggeration. Yet, thanks to Nancy Pelosi, the January 6th committee will now operate as she wants the country to operate — as a one-party state,” he added.
