    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi named Republican Representative Liz Cheney — one of the 10 GOP House members who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump for his role in stoking the mob that attacked the Capitol on Jan. 6 — to a 13-member committee that will investigate the riot.

    “The next step has always been to seek and find the truth,” Pelosi told reporters Thursday. “We will do so in the most patriotic and non-partisan way.”

    Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson will chair the panel, Pelosi said. Pelosi’s move comes a day after the House passed a Democratic bill creating the select committee, which most Republicans dismissed as an exercise in partisan politics.

    Cheney, who along Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, were the only Republicans to vote for the measure, said she was “honored” to serve on the panel at Pelosi’s behest.

    “What happened on Jan. 6th can never happen again,” Cheney said in a statement. “Those who are responsible for the attack need to be held accountable, and this select committee will fulfill that responsibility in a professional, expeditious, and non-partisan manner.”

    House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy said Wednesday that he hadn’t decided whether he would appoint any Republicans to the panel.
