Nancy Pelosi wanted to bury the truth.
That is not going to be possible now.
And Nancy Pelosi is going to be forced to answer the one question she is dreading.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced the five Republicans who will serve on the January 6 select committee.
McCarthy chose Indiana’s Jim Banks, Ohio’s Jim Jordan, North Dakota Congressman Kelly Armstrong, Illinois Representative Rodney Davis, and Texas Congressman Troy Nehls.
Banks – who served in the Navy Reserves – will serve as the top Republican on the committee.
And Banks made it clear in a statement that Nancy Pelosi will face tough questions about why Pelosi did not properly secure the Capitol on January 6 as well as about the Democrats’ embrace of the violent Black Lives Matter and AntiFa terrorist groups.
“If Democrats were serious about investigating political violence, this committee would be studying not only the January 6 riot at the Capitol, but also the hundreds of violent political riots last summer when many more innocent Americans and law-enforcement officers were attacked,” Banks stated. “And of course, the committee would not overlook the Good Friday murder of USCP Officer Billy Evans that was perpetrated by a far-left extremist.”
Banks added that the only reason Pelosi created this committee was to advance the Democrats’ narrative that smears the Republicans as all supporting sedition and insurrection.
“Make no mistake, Nancy Pelosi created this committee solely to malign conservatives and to justify the Left’s authoritarian agenda,” Banks added.
Republicans saw that as soon as Pelosi selected Adam Schiff and Jamie Raskin – the two Democrats who led the impeachment trials of Donald Trump as Pelosi’s House Managers – that this committee was really a third attempt at impeaching Donald Trump.
And that’s why McCarthy responded by picking Republicans with known ties to the military and law enforcement, and who are known as effective conservative messengers and interrogators.
