Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) on Wednesday said that she agrees with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) rejecting the recommendations of two Republicans selected by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to sit on a committee investigating the January 6th Capitol protest.

Pelosi cited the “integrity” of the probe in refusing to accept the appointments of Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). McCarthy, however, said the GOP won’t participate in the investigation if Democrats will not accept the members he appointed, as previously reported by Swamp Drain.

Liz Cheney, who Nancy Pelosi picked as one of her panelists, was asked by reporters about the House Speaker’s decision to reject Reps. Jordan and Banks from sitting on the January 6 Select Committee, and specifically if she urged Pelosi to make the move.

“I agree with what the Speaker has done,” Cheney told reporters outside the Capitol.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a statement Thursday that he would pull every Republican member from the House Select Committee after Pelosi rejected the recommendations of Jordan and Banks.

“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,” McCarthy stated. Video Below
