Breaking Now: Nancy Pelosi’s Capitol Riot Committee seems to be falling apart due to her own actions.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) rejected the potential appointments of Representatives Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) and Jim Banks (R., Ind.) to a select committee on the January 6 Capitol riot, in a statement on Wednesday,” according to National Review. [emphasis added]
“In response, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) said he would pull all Republican members from the committee.
“McCarthy initially recommended the two lawmakers along with Rodney Davis of Illinois, Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota, and Troy Nehls of Texas.
“‘The Select Committee on the January 6th Insurrection will investigate and report upon the facts and causes of the terrorist mob attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021,’ Pelosi said. ‘With respect for the integrity of the investigation, with an insistence on the truth and with concern about statements made and actions taken by these Members, I must reject the recommendations of Representatives Banks and Jordan to the Select Committee.’
“McCarthy called Pelosi’s decision an ‘egregious abuse of power.’
“‘Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts,’ McCarthy said in a statement.” [emphasis added]
