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 .
To quote Elmer Fudd, “Something awfuwwy scwewy is going on around heah.”

The White House will send House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., a letter on Friday “daring” her to hold a vote on Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Trump, Fox News has confirmed.
The letter will say the White House won’t comply with the Democrats’ investigation because Pelosi hasn’t codified the probe with a formal vote on the House floor. Its tone will be consistent with that of the letter House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., sent to the speaker on Thursday, Fox learned.
In his letter, McCarthy called on Pelosi to end the impeachment inquiry until “equitable rules and procedures” are set up.
“Unfortunately, you have given no clear indication as to how your impeachment inquiry will proceed — including whether key historical precedents or basic standards of due process will be observed,” McCarthy wrote. “In addition, the swiftness and recklessness with which you have proceeded [have] already resulted in committee chairs attempting to limit minority participation in scheduled interviews, calling into question the integrity of such an inquiry.”
McCarthy referred to reports that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was limiting Republicans’ ability to ask questions during Thursday’s testimony by former U.S. envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker, who resigned last week.
Pelosi shot back at McCarthy, saying that “existing rules of the House provide House committees with full authority to conduct investigations for all matters under their jurisdiction.”
She later tweeted: “The fact that the [House Republicans’] loyalty is to Trump and not to the Constitution is not going to slow down or impair our ability to keep the republic of our founders envisioned.”
The letter prompted a response from President Trump, who tweeted Thursday: “Leader McCarthy, we look forward to you soon becoming Speaker of the House. The Do Nothing Dems don’t have a chance!”
House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump after a whistleblower complaint suggested the president took part in a quid pro quo scheme during a July 25 phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart, using $400 million in military aid as leverage to induce officials there to investigate Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, his son Hunter and their business dealings in that country.
Trump has said his call with President Volodymyr Zelensky was “perfect.” On Thursday, he repeated his contention that the Democrats’ investigation “the greatest witch hunt in the history of our country.”
Trump said there “wasn’t anything said wrong” in his phone call with Zelensky and called the impeachment probe a “Democrat scam.”
He later tweeted that, as president, he has an “absolute right, perhaps even a duty, to investigate or have investigated corruption, and that would include asking or suggesting other countries to help us out!”
Schiff made a formal request on Sept. 10 to transmit the whistleblower complaint to Congress. Trump has said Schiff is a “lowlife” who should resign.
Biden took a pointed jab at President Trump on Thursday night amid the back-and-forth over the impeachment inquiry, tweeting, “The idea of Donald Trump attacking anyone’s integrity is a joke.”
A senior Democratic aide told Fox News on Thursday, “As we continue to follow the facts, it would behoove the president to come up with something more persuasive than Kevin McCarthy’s pathetic and bogus process arguments,” following reports of the White House’s letter to Pelosi, first reported by Axios.
“Given that the president just this morning on national television urged yet another foreign government to meddle in our upcoming 2020 elections, we would think the White House would want to mount a rigorous defense of the president’s clear betrayal of his oath of office,” the aide said.
After almost 3 years, the Democrats still do not understand that Trump does not play by their rules.
He fights back.
In the past, Republican Presidents, such as George W.Bush, sat back, barely defending himself from the scurrilous attacks thrown at him from the Democratic Party.
God bless him, but if Dubya had been attacked with the same ferocity as President Trump has been and continues to be, he would have lost his ever-loving mind.
Trump and his entire family have been attacked nonstop since his Inauguration.
And yet, here he stands…not backing down an inch.
And, it is driving the Democrat Hierarchy, the Squad, and the rest of the socialists in the Far Left Democratic Party absolutely bonkers.
What Trump is doing today, by telling Pelosi to “put up or shut up” is brilliant.
As things stand, the Republicans cannot call witnesses and they are not being allowed to aske questions.
In other words, Trump is being railroaded…again.
The reason that Pelosi refuses to call the vote is quite simple: Trump has done NOTHING impeachable.
No matter how twisted their logic and arguments are, the Dems do not have ANYTHING resembling “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”.
Nor can they show any obstruction.
I find Pelosi’s referencing the Constitution to be hilariously hypocritical coming from the party that wants to rewrite the Second Amendment to the point of eliminating it.
Trump, as he has no doubt done thousands of times in high stakes business negotiations, is simply calling Nancy’s Bluff.
He’s not puffing his chest out, giving himself a wedgie, and drawing a red line for his enemy to walk across, like his failed predecessor did.
Like the lone hero in a Western movie, Trump is telling Pelosi to “make her move”.
Whatever she does next…will be a misfire.
