McCarthy announces five Republicans to join Pelosi’s probe into Jan. 6 riot

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has received mixed reviews for her partisan probe into the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

Now, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has revealed the five GOP lawmakers he has chosen to serve alongside the select committee members Pelosi has already named — and the Republicans could prove to be an impediment to the Democratic leader’s plans.

McCarthy announces his nominees

McCarthy confirmed that he chose Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Jim Banks (R-IN), Troy Nehls (R-TX), Kelly Armstrong (R-ND), and Rodney Davis (R-IL) to serve on the panel.

Of course, Democrats still have an advantage on the 13-person committee, which Pelosi launched after Republicans shot down her earlier efforts to establish a 9/11-style commission to investigate what Democrats have dubbed an attempted insurrection.

The latest probe is in line with previous attempts by Democrats to attack Trump and his conservative allies as dangerous insurgents.

Although there is no guarantee that anything substantial will result from the investigation, some of the Republicans chosen by McCarthy have already shown a willingness to call out Pelosi’s partisan plot.

For his part, Banks dismissed the committee as a cynical effort to “malign” millions of right-wing Americans as terrorists while ignoring the widespread riots that plagued cities nationwide last summer.

“Solely to malign conservatives”

“Make no mistake, Nancy Pelosi created this committee solely to malign conservatives and to justify the Left’s authoritarian agenda,” the lawmaker said.

One name notably missing from the GOP roster, however, is Rep. Marjory Taylor Green (R-GA), who has been vocal about the perceived mistreatment of those facing charges related to the Jan. 6 riot.

Critics of the hearing, which is set to commence on July 27, are likely on board with the inclusion of legislators like Banks, however.

“If Democrats were serious about investigating political violence, this committee would be studying not only the January 6 riot at the Capitol, but also the hundreds of violent political riots last summer when many more innocent Americans and law-enforcement officers were attacked,” he said.

Pelosi named Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who voted alongside Democrats to impeach Trump, as the only Republican she chose for the panel. As for McCarthy’s choices, Pelosi must still ratify them before their participation will be official.

  1. I quit working at shoprite and now I make $65-85 per/h. How? I’m working online! My work didn’t exactly make me happy so I decided to take a chance on something new… after 4 years it was so hard to quit my day job but now I couldn’t be happier.

    Here’s what I do…….,,,,,:two_hearts:,,,,,► …..►

    1. Pelosi has shown that she is an extremist who like to make others feel they are not doing their job properly, yet she has done nothing for those homeless in her State. She doesn’t even live in the District that she chooses to represent. she doesn’t want any one in her district to come to her house and complain. I bet she has chosen to ignore all those complaints of people who are sleeping on the Streets. They were sleeping on the Streets several years back. Does it bother her. not in the least. No one has ever seen her out among them. She jets in and out of Washington faster than you can blink your eye. Maxine Waters hates everyone that is white and she is another Blister on her straight back that she walks like a stoked up Queen

  7. wouldn’t it be great that we find out that this was all Nancy’s January 5th plan to repel enforcement to make trump look bad, because that is what precisely what happened 100% Pelosi’s plan. Trump was still speaking when January 6th started. I’ve seen pictures of the D.C. police inviting the people into the capitol. I wonder who paid for the busses that transported ANIFTA and BLM to DC.
