House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has selected his party’s five members who will serve on a select House committee to investigate the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Politico reported the five Republicans will include Indiana Rep. Jim Banks, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, Illinois Rep. Rodney Davis, North Dakota Rep. Kelly Armstrong and Texas Rep. Troy Nehls.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced the formation of a select committee after a 9/11-style committee passed in the House but failed in a Senate vote.
The select committee will consist of 13 members, with eight selected by Pelosi. Among Pelosi’s choices was one Democrat, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney.
Cheney was among the few Republicans who voted to impeach Trump following the events of Jan. 6 and has served as a staunch anti-Trump opponent.
Pelosi’s other selections include Democratic Reps. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi, California Rep. Adam Schiff, Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, California Rep. Zoe Lofgren, California Rep. Pete Aguilar, Virginia Rep. Elaine Luria and Florida Rep. Stephanie Murphy.
The committee will hold its first hearing on July 27, according to the Daily Caller.
The committee will certainly include controversial discussions and debate as it seeks to investigate the events of Jan. 6. Hundreds of Americans were arrested, with many cases still in process.
