    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two Republicans selected by House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy for a committee to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, sparking a threat by the chamber’s top Republican to pull out of the inquiry entirely.

    Pelosi, who has final say over the 13-member committee’s composition, said she informed McCarthy she wouldn’t accept his recommendation that Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio and Jim Banks of Indiana join the panel and requested he select two new members.

    “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. “The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision.”

    McCarthy, who had previously cast the select committee’s creation as a political tool for Democrats to go after Republicans and former President Donald Trump, called Pelosi’s action an “egregious use of power.”

    “Unless Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republicans, we will not participate,” McCarthy said at a news conference. “We will run our own investigation.”
