House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy responded by saying he's pulling all five of his picks for the committee.
(D-Calif.) on Wednesday rejected two of Republican leaders’ picks for a newly created committee to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol, suggesting they’ve made false statements and taken concerning actions that make them less credible participants in the probe.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) responded by saying he would pull all five of his picks for the committee.Pelosi said she is rejecting Reps. Jim Banks (Ind.) and Jim Jordan (Ohio). The two lawmakers were among those whovoted to overturn the presidential election
based on a lie about voter fraud that fueled the deadly attack on Jan. 6.“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,” Pelosi said in a statement. headtopics.com
“The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision.”McCarthy, who alsobased on the lie that fueled the attack, tapped Banks and Jordan for the committee, along withReps. Troy Nehls (Texas), Rodney Davis (Ill.) and Kelly Armstrong (N.D.).
Nehls also voted to overturn the election, but Davis and Armstrong did not. Pelosi said Wednesday that she is prepared to appoint all three of them, and that she informed McCarthy of her decision on Wednesday morning.“I have spoken with him ... about the objections raised about Representatives Jim Banks and Jim Jordan and the impact their appointments may have on the integrity of the investigation,” she said. ”
I also informed him that I was prepared to appoint Representatives Rodney Davis, Kelly Armstrong and Troy Nehls, and requested that he recommend two other Members.”Within minutes, McCarthy responded that he was pulling all five of the lawmakers he had chosen. He called Pelosi’s decision “unprecedented.”
“This represents an egregious abuse of power and will irreparably damage this institution,” said McCarthy,who spent months spreading the liethat there was widespread voter fraud in the presidential election. “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.” headtopics.com
What this all means is that the committee will proceed without McCarthy’s picks but that Pelosi can pick others for those seats. She already has one Republican wiling to serve on the committee: Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.). Read more: HuffPost »

Pelosi Rejects Two GOP Picks for Jan. 6 Capitol Riot PanelSpeaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two of five Republicans, Reps. Jim Jordan and Jim Banks, from serving on the panel investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot JayEmme00 Thank you Madam Speaker! SpeakerPelosi NoCarnivalBarkingClowns These two are likely heavily involved in what already is being investigated. These two do not speak the truth and only try to create confusion and create false narrative for their ignorant base. Committee would do good work without these two. Kudos to Pelosi for good judgement. Pelosi doesn’t say no to everything

Thank you Madam Speaker for not allowing the select committee to be turned into a 3 ring circus. The GQP had the option in the Senate to form a bipartisan committee but their response was “nothing to see here, let’s move on.” Benghazi? 09/11? Oh but never mind an insurrection. 😤 Nope

McCarthy pulls his 5 GOP members from 1/6 committee after Pelosi rejects 2 of his picksHouse Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pulling his five Republican members selected to join the House committee that's investigating the January 6 insurrection, following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to reject two of McCarthy's picks. A Republican stunt,the GOPLeader just doesn’t want the real facts behind the Jan.6 Attack. Those Domestic Terrorist weren’t holding Democrat flags/banners,hats & shirts, they all had Republican stuff. NO Democrat Politicians on that stage pushing to stop electoral certification Too bad Kevin because you can’t abuse the filibuster on this one. And this surprises who? Kevin McCarthy did this for the Media, he knew that he was going to do this. It's a discusting bit of theater and it shouldn't be a surprise for anyone.
