Nancy Pelosi rejected Republican picks for the members to represent the GOP on the so-called “bipartisan” select committee that will be doing the fake “investigation” of the events of January 6.
The committee, demanded by the media and fans of “the squad’ on Twitter, is something we all knew would be a joke anyway. It’s just a dog and pony show so they can do some more anti-Trumping to get ratings for dying DNC organ CNN and a few more fundraising emails for withering Democrats afraid of 2022.
Pelosi questioned the integrity of the Reps. she was rejecting, saying that House Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan, along with Rep. Jim Banks, would compromise the “integrity of the investigation,” if you can believe THAT irony.
In a statement, minority leader McCarthy said:
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken the unprecedented step of denying the minority party’s picks for the Select Committee on January 6. This represents an egregious abuse of power and will irreparably damage this institution. Denying the voices of members who have served in the military and law enforcement, as well as leaders of standing committees, has made it undeniable that this panel has lost all legitimacy and credibility and shows the Speaker is more interested in playing politics than seeking the truth.
“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.”
He also held a presser, stating rightly that Pelosi has “broken this institution.”

This is just the latest sham she’s put on. The Democrats are just doing reruns of the shows that got them all the media love and donor money when Trump was in office. They’re addicted.
