A last-hour attempt to seat Republican members on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6 Select Committee was quickly rebuffed by Democrats on Monday night.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., introduced a privileged resolution demanding his five designees be allowed to serve on the Jan. 6 committee on the House floor Monday night.
The motion was immediately tabled by Democrats and anti-Trump GOP Reps. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., who were both added to Pelosi’s panel that also includes seven anti-Trump Democrats.
The vote to table McCarthy’s motion 218-197, which was all 216 Democrats in the chamber along with just Cheney and Kinzinger.
“For the first known time in the history of the House, the speaker of the House rejected two of the minority leader’s nominees to a select committee,” McCarthy’s resolution read. “Speaker’s Pelosi’s own press office acknowledged that this was an ‘unprecedented decision.’
“Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to seat all five Republican members directly harms the legitimacy, credibility, and integrity of the select committee.”
Speaker Pelosi rejected two of McCarthy’s selections, Reps. Jim Banks, R-Ind. and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio. Leader McCarthy had pulled all his selections and said that his party would not participate in the process unless the speaker reversed her decision.
Pelosi had talked about adding Reps. Rodney Davis,R-Ill., Troy Nehls, R-Texas, and Kelly Armstrong, R-N.D. She deemed them acceptable, but it was unlikely they would break from their party leadership as Cheney and Kinzinger did.
Those latter two also voted to impeach former President Donald Trump for incitement to insurrection after the president left office.
McCarthy rebuked Cheney and Kinzinger as “Pelosi Republicans” earlier Monday.
In a statement Sunday, McCarthy said Pelosi’s decision to reject his picks and appoint members “who share her preconceived narrative will not yield a serious investigation” and is intended “to satisfy her political objectives.”
Pelosi’s Jan. 6 Select Committee is set to first hear from four law enforcement officers about defending the storming of the Capitol to protest certifying the Electoral College vote Trump had said was tainted by allegations election fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
The hearing will start at 9:30 a.m. ET with opening statements from Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss. – the chair of the select committee – and Cheney.
Why is Pelosi only allowing two Republicans, who happen to be Trump-hating RINOs, on her committee?
Simple. She is covering her a@@.
As Anyone who has halfway been paying attention knows, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in charge of the Capitol Police who opened the doors for the rioters to enter the Capitol Building.
Now, boys and girls, I’m just spit-balling here, but there a several things that just do not add up in Pelosi and the Democrats’ version of what happened on January 6, 2021.
Information has come out that the “insurrection” was pre-planned. An allegation proven by the fact that pipe bombs were planted and found before the end of President Trump’s speech that day.
Also, the “rioters” were already “storming” the Capitol while Trump was still speaking.
And, why did Pelosi and McConnell block the request for 10,000 National Guard Troops from President Trump, himself?
Oh, and why did the Capitol Police Officers guarding the Capital Building let the rioters in?
By the way, of the two hundred fifty people, out of the tens of thousands who were at Trump’s Speech, arrested for their actions that day, they are finding nut jobs who DID NOT VOTE FOR TRUMP.
In fact, they did not even vote in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Y’know, Pelosi sure is reticent to talk about her duties as Speaker of the House as they pertain to the “insurrection”.
I hope that I do not sound like a conspiracy theorist, but…what if the entire “insurgence” on January 6th was not just preplanned but it was a political frame job by Pelosi and the Democrat Elite.
Come to think of it, my supposition is not that far-fetched when you consider the same crowd attempted to unconstitutionally impeach a private citizen simply because they were overcome with Trump Derangement Syndrome and they did not want to him to be able to run for President again in 2024 or be involved in politics in any way.
And, now those same professional politicians are going to to provide cover for themselves with a “9/11-Style Commission”, once again going after a private citizen in a vendetta which the entire nation has already recognized to be wrong and not important to the needs of our country and her people .
