In a surprise move, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rejected two of Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's GOP picks to serve on her January 6 special committee. The two lawmakers who Pelosi refuses to seat on the committee are Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana. In response, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who made the picks, has pulled all GOP members from Pelosi's committee. The rules of the committee's formation gave Pelosi veto power over McCarthy's selections...............In refusing to seat the members of the committee chosen by Republican leadership, Pelosi has signaled that she likely doesn't want lawmakers who disagree with the intent of the committee to be on the committee at all.

Our Group's Take - McCarthy is exactly right. For the videos in the tweets - and I think McCarthy's is well worth listening to.
My Take - Here was the story by David Zukerman before this broke. Pelosi's Jan. 6 commission gets its five Republicans July 21, 2021.
Those five names don't include Liz Cheney. The ranking member of the "Jan. 6" Select Committee is Jim Banks of Indiana. With Rep. Banks are Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rodney Davis of Illinois, Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota, and Troy Nehls of Texas.............
Politico, as Democrat-biased a website as they come, posted a curious article, July 20, by Nicholas Wu and Olivia Beavers, called "Democrats begrudgingly accept [Kevin] McCarthy picks for Jan. 6."
The clear implication is that Speaker Pelosi should have wielded her "technical veto" power to make sure that all Republicans on the committee would Cheney. Talk about undermining our democratic institutions. What would be the next step — a Biden executive order banning any opposition party from Congress?
Apparently Pelosi has once again caved in to the far left, and has lost all sense of propriety. Actually, I'm glad Pelosi has crumbled before these misfits as now everyone is capable of seeing what many of us have seen for many years. The left is corrupt beyond reason and will trample on anyone who stands in the way of their insane grasping for power to control everything and everyone, to the detriment of humanity
That's history and that history is incontestable.
