Pelosi Officially Names Second Republican to Jan. 6 Committee

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially selected a second Republican to serve on the select Jan. 6th Committee. She selected anti-Trump Rep. Adam Kinzinger after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled all of his nominees from the panel last week.

The Hill reports:

“He brings great patriotism to the Committee’s mission: to find the facts and protect our Democracy,” Pelosi said Sunday in a statement.

Kinzinger, in a biting statement accepting the seat, hammered those Trump allies spreading “lies and conspiracy theories” about the election and the Jan. 6 attack, warning that those voices pose an existential threat to the nation’s democratic traditions.

“Let me be clear, I’m a Republican dedicated to conservative values, but I swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution — and while this is not the position I expected to be in or sought out, when duty calls, I will always answer,” he said.

“This moment requires a serious, clear-eyed, non-partisan approach,” he added. “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.”

Kinzinger was one of 10 House Republicans that voted to impeach Trump.

After Pelosi rejected two of Rep. McCarthy’s nominees it’s unclear if Pelosi will select other House members, specifically Republicans to serve on the so-called bipartisan panel.

Nancy is playing her usual nasty game of In ‘Your Face’. It wont work any more because the Republicans have gotten used to Nancy. She’s been hanging around so long she can’t produce any surprises. I don’t think it will work any more. Placing traitors in high places is never a good idea. Traitors always get exposed and dealt with by Karma rendering them useless to the cause. One would be Slawell, a useful idiot till he got caught spending all his vote funding cash on luxury living. Americans on both sides of the isles are waking up to the true agenda of the democrat party. There is a lot of buyers remorse among true, moderate, Democrats and the numbers are staggering.
The sham trial will be the most watched process on cable and Americans who have been awakened to the true agenda of the Democrats will listen to the well crafted fifteen minutes of fame speeches we are always subjected to during Committee hearings and judge for themselves who is telling the truth. The hash treatment of fellow citizens being held in prison well over the allotted time will play a part in this show committee and the Democratic Inquisition will be on trial for all to see. We may even find out who murdered Ashlie Babbit.

Grace, here’s some info on the Ashie Babbit murder from Deneesh D’Souza; “This is strange,” D’Souza said, “because think about it, there have been a number of police shootings over the last couple of years. Can you think of a single case where the identity of the officer has been systematically concealed by the media? There’s no such case. So in this one case, they are preventing people from knowing what I just told you. Why?” he pressed further.
Here’s why. The cop’s name is Lt. Michael Byrd. So the only deliberate killing on January 6 was a black male police officer who shot a white female Trump supporter through the neck. Are you still puzzled why the media is hiding Byrd’s identity?

Dinesh D’Souza is the greatest! His films are spot on and very informative…also scary.

It’s commendable that none of our reps objected to being denied to Pee’s little hit squad. It’s appropriate that none of those worth a sh-t were offered up to her next flimflam. The GOP will smell better with Kinzinger stinking up the other side.

Since when does old nancy get to chose which Republicans are on the fake committee? McCarthy pulled them all out of the fake 1/6 committee. She can’t even run her own party. Get that dinasor out of there. None of them are supporting We The People. Let’s take them out of office.

Why not Form our own investigating team, to expose the truth…
Keven M should step up and say I will be haveing an informal investigating team to look into the issues at hand…. Be on TV, reports, you tube, etc…
Expose what he finds… in the name of openness….

Pelosi is simply packing the Committee, with RINOs. So much for just wanting to get to the truth.

This is no investigation committee this is a lynch mob. Pelosi and her cronies are all scared to death what will happen to them for their crimes if Trump returns to the Presidency, so they are trying to stop him.

Adam Kinzinger is a joke. The people of Illinois 16th Congressional District are either stupid or uninformed – maybe both. Kinzinger is not a Republican – even if he ran as one. He is not a conservative – even if he ran as one. Kinzinger is a liar, a phony, and a jackass. I find two things impossible to believe:

  1. The Republican Party put this guy up as a candidate. And;
  2. Any person who considers themselves a Republican voted for this ass-clown.

Kevin McCarthy needs to pull Kinzinger and Cheney off this committee regardless of whether they want to serve on it or not. Pelosi is totally playing politics with this sham committee and nothing but lies will come from it.

Dems have to lie.

They have a big handicap: it is very difficult and risky to secretly overthrow America’s legal system.

Their punishment must be severe.
