Pelosi, McCarthy Engage In Political Chicken Over Jan 6th Committee

RT published this video item, entitled “Pelosi, McCarthy Engage In Political Chicken Over Jan 6th Committee” – below is their description.

Nancy Pelosi rejected two Republican picks to join the select committee investigating the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol invasion by a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters.

Pelosi in a statement said that she had to reject GOP Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Jim Banks of Indiana, citing “concern about statements made and actions taken by these Members.”

Kevin McCarthy in a statement called Pelosi’s move “an egregious abuse of power” and accused her of being “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”.
