Following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) kicking off Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) from the January 6th Committee, she has now appointed anti-Trump “RINO” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) to serve on the committee.
“Today, I was asked to serve on the bipartisan January 6th Select Committee and I humbly accepted. When duty calls, I will always answer.”
As we previously reported, “We reported on Monday that U.S. House Reps Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jim Banks (R-IN) were among five Republicans that were named to the Jan. 6 House Select Committee by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) that was formed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
In the report, we also added that Pelosi could choose to reject them or all five if she so chose and today, she decided to allow only three of the five to participate, not Jordan or Banks.
In a statement, Pelosi said, “I must reject the recommendations of Representatives Banks and Jordan to the Select Committee.”
“The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision,” Pelosi claimed.“
Kinzinger tweeted out, “This moment requires a serious, clear-eyed, non-partisan approach. We are duty-bound to conduct a full investigation on the worst attack on the Capitol since 1814 and to make sure it can never happen again.”
Congressman Jim Banks (R-IN) went after Nancy Pelosi after she rejected both him and Rep. Jordan from serving on the committee after being appointed by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
“Pelosi only wants members on the Jan 6 committee who will read her talking points.”
Some on the right want punishment for both Re. Cheney (R-WY) and Rep. Kinzinger (R-IL) for agreeing to serve on a committee they view as a shame. However, they don’t believe Minority Leader McCarthy will have what it takes to punish them
Some may say that if Republicans take back the house in 2022 they should replace Minority leader Kevin McCarthy with a real America First Republican. In order for that to happen the GOP must primary and defeat all anti-Trump RINOs.
Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) tore into Pelosi and Kinzinger on Twitter, in responce to Kinzinger’s acceptance tweet.
“You’re not serious, clear eyed, or nonpartisan. Accepting a seat on a highly partisan witch hunt, assigned by an old Democrat woman who is filled with bitter hate and rage and failed to secure the Capitol, isn’t a call to duty, it means you’re a traitor.”
