Oklahoma Congresswoman, Stephanie Bice joined the 10 other Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump. The move pits her against the other 4 united Oklahoma congressmen, including Cole, Hern, Lucas, & Mullin. Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy condemned the legislation.
This may be the first clear evidence of Bice's departure from the previously unified Republican Oklahoma delegation in the US House of Representatives.
There are several standing House Committees with current jurisdiction to conduct investigations into events like the many street riots in Mpls, Portland, Seattle, and other major hotbeds of Marxist riots.
But Pelosi wants to focus on a narrative which was debunked by video footage of that day, and continue a drumbeat for labeling Trump supporters as terrorists.
Bice will clearly be inviting a primary opponent by her new alliances with the far left. Republicans chose Bice last year and poured vast amounts of campaign resources into helping her secure a very narrow victory over Democrat Kendra Horn.

Breitbart News: Thirty-five House Republicans voted Wednesday to establish a commission to investigate the riots and protests on January 6.
The House passed H.R. 3233, the National Commission to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol Complex Act, with 252 votes in favor and 175 votes against the bill.
While the bill featured strong Democrat support, the legislation also had support from 35 House Republicans.
Thirty-five House Republicans voted for the legislation, even though House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) came out against the bill. He criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for not negotiating in good faith.
The ten House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump also voted for the commission to investigate the riots on January 6.
The 35 House Republicans run counter to some House Republicans, such as Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who contended on the House floor before the vote that many committees already have the ability to investigate the incidents on January 6.
Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) said in a statement after the vote that Pelosi hopes the commission distracts from the Democrats’ many crises.
He said, “This partisan legislation was designed to distract the American people from the unprecedented crisis at our border, Joe Biden’s wasteful tax-and-spend policies, and the fact Democrats would rather defend radical Islamic terrorists in Palestine than support our allies in Israel.”
