Pelosi vetos Republicans for ‘bipartisan’ Jan. 6 committee

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is receiving backlash for blocking Republican nominees for the January 6th Select Committee according to The Daily Wire

Pelosi has vetoed two Republicans who were put forward for the controversial committee on Wednesday while putting together a group to delve into the details of the January Capitol Hill demonstration.

Politico reported, “Pelosi rejected Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), who was tapped to serve as ranking member, and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), both of whom voted to challenge certification of President Joe Biden’s electoral wins earlier this year.”

When asked about her decision to block the Republicans but not Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX), who “also voted to overturn the election,  Pelosi said, ‘That was not the criteria,’” according to NBC News.

The House speaker said when speaking to the press that committee will continue and will still be considered bipartisan due to the presence of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) who will serve with seven Democrats. “We have a bipartisan quorum so we can proceed,” Pelosi said.

Rep. Banks tweeted Wednesday “The question that all of us should be asking: what is [Pelosi] afraid of?”

Pelosi said dramatically  that the “attack on Congress on January 6th was the worst assault on the Capitol since the War of 1812 and the worst domestic assault on American Democracy since the Civil War,” in her statement. The House speaker went on to claim that it “had been our hope to establish a bipartisan, independent National Commission, but there is no prospect for that Commission at this time because of insufficient support from Republican Senators. Therefore, the House established the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol.”

“Monday evening, the Minority Leader recommended 5 Members to serve on the Select Committee. I have spoken with him this morning 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 added. “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.”

Not everyone was willing to take a passive tone on the issue however, with Re. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND), who was also selected by McCarthy, saying of Pelosi, “It’s bulls***. Jim Banks and Jim Jordan have every right to serve on any committee Kevin appoints them to.”

There is NOTHING BIPARTISAN ABOUT THIS Committee! Their plot is to label ALL TRUMP/MAGA/AMERICA 1ST supporters as “INSURRECTIONISTS” and bar all of them from holding political office! I SURE AS HELL DON’T SUPPORT LIZ CHENEY, AND FEEL THE GOP NEEDS TO PROTEST HER PELOSI INVITATION TO SIT ON THE COMMITTEE! IF YOU THINK I AM KIDDING YOU ABOUT THE DEM PLOT, THEY HAVE ALREADY DRAFTED LEGISLATION TO DO IT! Lacking creativity, they simply resurrected a law passed shortly after the CIVIL WAR that was meant to bar CONFEDERATE POLITICAL AND MILITARY FROM HOLDING PUBLIC OFFICE! Even with PELOSI and all the other DEMS pushing how terrible this demonstration that got out of control was, they want to make it the same AS A CIVIL WAR THAT KILLED MILLIONS!? JUST PAY ATTENTION TO HOW MANY TIMES THEY CHANT THAT THESE PEOPLE WERE “INSURRECTIONISTS” NOT PROTESTORS! IT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO PROTEST, IT IS SOMETHING ELSE TO START A CIVIL WAR! This is like Russia, that “pretends” their oligarchy is a Democracy, or China that simply OUTLAWS ANY ORGANIZATION THEY DON’T LIKE! Remember the FALUN GONG? AN EXERCISE GROUP THAT SUPPORTED DEMOCRACY DISAPPEARED! Right now, in Hong Kong YOU CAN GO TO PRISON FOR 5 YEARS FOR LIGHTING A CANDLE IN REMEMBRANCE OF THE TIENANMEN SQUARE MASSACRE! IF YOU RECALL THIS YEAR THERE WAS NO MENTION OF TIENANMEN SQUARE ANYWHERE IN THE WESTERN PRESS! A complete disgrace! CHINA HAS ALREADY CO OPTED OUR MEDIA AND EVERY US COMPANY WHO HAS FACTORIES, OR EVEN DOES BUSINESS WITH CHINA! OF SIGNIFICANT CONCERN IS THAT GOOGLE HAS A DATA STORAGE HUB IN HONG KONG! THEY NEED TO GET DATA ON US CITIZENS OFF THAT SITE, NOW!

PELOSI IS A TOTALITARIAN FREAK! JANUARY 6TH CAPITOL PROTEST WAS “WEAPONLESS,” NOBODY DIED, EXCEPT Ashli Babbit, a Trump supporter, unarmed, killed by a Capitol Police Officer. History will remember it. Hopefully before the mid-term election!

Pelosi really should retire, she is so against Trump. She would never appoint anyone who supported him. Her hatred is so deep for this man, she would do almost anything to keep him from running again.

Debra: Guess who was/is in charge of Capitol Security?? I’ll give you three guesses and the first two don’t count. Now if you say Nannny Piglosie on your third try, you win the quippy doll. She also turned down, at least three times, the request to have MORE security to help the Capitol Police, from none other than POTUS TRUMP!!!.

Pelosi like many democrat’s are there to clog the system .Pelosi (in her mind) is a super star and loves the attention she gets. She’s the leader for most of the democrat’s voting on things that is good for the people. If there’s any justice, she will be gone soon. Democrat’s vote against bills that are good for the general public. That’s just who they are. and the reason we need to vote them out .

cheny doesn’t count as a Republican, she’s a damn RINO. As usual pelosi is off her rocker and thinks we are stupid and will just fall for her lies (Pathological liar that she is!) She doesn’t want people on her committee that might point out that what they are doing is wrong. I am sure the parameters of this so-called committee will grow to include things they shouldn’t just like the Anti-American left’s perpetual investigations into President Trump and others who disagree with them. This rejection should be a loud alarm to all Americans who care about this country that something is WRONG! pelosi the sneaky snake is at it again people, we must stop her! #THELEFTISAMERICASENEMY

She could not stand to have someone on the committee that would ask sane questions and attempt to get to the truth. She would find that there was to insurrection. Marine Bob

Trump asked Pelosi to put many more Capitol Police during the Jan 6 incident, but she said no. I also heard that even the Capitol Police wanted more officers at this event, but Pelosi said NO. That just shows you that if Trump had done anything about inciting this crowd, he wouldn’t have asked for more police. When denied the Capitol Police and several others to have more Capitol Police just shows what Pelosi did is work with the FBI because she knew this incident was coming and she wanted it to be as chaotic as it was so Trump would be blamed. It will all come out that Pelosi was behind all of this so that Trump would be impeached, therefore, he wouldn’t be allowed to run for President in 2024. That’s their main goal right now is to stop Trump from being ALLOWED to run in 2024!!!

Grammy Nan is up against the wall. She wants to make this into something huge and horrible to have a reason to keep Donald Trump from running in 2024. Her orders come from the very top of the Deep State. Trump’s Presidency stopped the Deep State from moving forward with its Marxist agenda, and they cannot have that happen again. Unfortunately Grammy Nan, it’s going to – if it isn’t Trump it will be another Patriot. You’re done, old woman.

I think it is time for the Republicans to vacate the house and reduce the Demonrat’s ability to do business. They loved it when the Demonrats did it in Texas. What is good for them is great for us – a taste of their own medicine is the only way to stop these communists!

So Pelosi Cheney and Schiff at least voted to impeach Trump for causing the insurrection but now they expect us to believe that they can be objective going forward to investigate the insurrection they’ve already made up their mind we all knew before they opened their mouths they made up their mind they made up their mind in 2016 before he was even sworn into office. for Pelosi to not allow those two representatives on the panel is clear evidence of bias and I don’t know why Chaney doesn’t just go ahead and quit the republican party and join the Democrats. that atmosphere of total laser focus on hatred for Donald Trump is overwhelmingly toxic so what is their objective it obviously isn’t to learn the truth their objective must be either to do a third impeachment of former president Donald Trump which wouldn’t surprise me or to have criminal charges filed against him which is ridiculous because out of the enormous amount of people that showed up for his rally a small percentage Actually went into the capital how can he be held responsible for 100% of anybody he’s talking to it is the stupidest thing ever.
And an investigation of which several in Washington DC has already gone on and I know at least the Senate one has concluded is not going to do anything but waste the taxpayers money because we know what the report is going to be.

I demand that Liz Cheney resign from the Committee because of Pelosi’s comment:

The House speaker said when speaking to the press that committee will continue and will still be considered bipartisan due to the presence of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) who will serve with seven Democrats. “We have a bipartisan quorum so we can proceed,” Pelosi said.

7-1 is not bipartisan when the one Republican was selected by Pelosi.
