McCarthy slams Pelosi, pulls his picks from January 6 committee

House Republicans balked at participating in the House committee that's investigating the January 6 insurrection on Wednesday after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two of the five Republicans House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had tapped for the panel.
Pelosi's decision to reject the Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) — and McCarthy's response to pull the rest his members — injected new fuel into the partisan fight over the select committee that's been raging since Democrats created the panel last month to investigate the circumstances surrounding the January 6 attack on the Capitol.
The committee will still have Republican representation from one member: Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump who was one of Pelosi's eight choices to serve on the committee. Cheney's participation keeps the committee bipartisan even without anyone appointed by McCarthy.
Still, Pelosi's move gives House Republicans an avenue to attack the select committee as a partisan endeavor. McCarthy slammed the move shortly after it was announced Wednesday.
"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 said.

  1. “The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters,”

    — Kevin McCarthy

    1. @A F she maybe but witnesses say Trump watched the whole thing unwrap, he waited 2 hours before he told everyone to go home and why didn’t he call the national guard? The President is responsible for the security of the nation!

  2. This is BS by Kevin, the question should be, why the riotous lunatics at the capital Hill, not why officers were not prepared.

  3. Oh no, McCarthy’s picks who themselves have ties to the insurrection and have sworn fealty to Trump were denied.

    Who could have seen this coming?

    1. I’m sure that’s why he selected them. So, he could turn around and call it a sham and pull them all. Pelosi agreed to all eleven requests McCarthy put forth, but McCarthy turned it down. He COULD have had veto power, but he turned it down.

    2. @Doug Cunningham I think we all are positive that’s what’s happening. Their very recent meeting even confirms it.

  4. How can he say any of this with a straight face. He picked the Jim’s because he knew rue democrats would not approve them.
    Don’t be fooled he had this speech written months ago. Republicans are a full on con.
    I agree with Pelosi.

  5. Good for Nancy… his tRump nominees are bogus and show lack of good faith on McCarthy’s side.. sad.

  6. Why wasn’t he talking about the violent attack on Capitol Hill and finding about it ? Why was he attacking democrats instead. If Trump didn’t do anything then no one can blame him. But it looks like they are trying to divert the attention so that their crimes wouldn’t come out .

    1. McCarthy is dead-eyed. Senator Palpatine. All he sees is political maneuvering. He’s incapable of honest thought, truth, or principles. He’s 100% political clown show and as the malignant narcissist that he is, he’s incapable of noticing a truthful intention. To him everyone is engaged in political warfare, taking every opportunity to cynically hurt the opponent.

    2. ​@Christopher Barrett You will never get anything resembling truth if the commission consists entirely of Trump haters. All you will get is theatre.

    3. @Ohio Against The World You just proved my point. So quit with the petty insults just because you are too brainwashed to ever believe the truth when it is staring you in the face. So unlike you who obviously live on the planet of alternate reality, I live on a real planet called Earth.

    4. @Colonel OfTruth
      They would get nothing done with a deliberate obstructionist like Gym Jordan. He would derail and deny anything inconvenient to Agent Orange. He’s hard core trumpy. Too extreme and hostile for a bi-partisan anything.

  7. Is this guy insane ? Don’t blame the shooter, blame the dr. that could not save him ? Really !!!

  8. Gym Jodan got his hand smacked by Liz Cheney during the Jan 6 riot saying “ur responsible for this!”

  9. Why TF is mccarthy asking “what happened on Jan 6?” when he voted against a commission to investigate that very question?

    1. @John Going pathetic is knowing McCarthy was against a full BIPARTISAN 1/ 6 commission and thinking he has any room to open his mouth. Republicans stopped that,why?

    2. @OutdoorIndoorVariety ye of no knowledge, Obama Biden turned the great republican recession into the longest economic expansion ever. 1.5 mil more jobs in Obama last 3 than t’s first 3
      Unemployment down from 10to4.8% . You celebrated t for dropping the unemployment from 4.8to4.6% .
      Stock market rose from 7552to19,732 on Jan 3 2017. More than doubled it’s previous high which was before the great republican recession.
      1098 farms went bankrupt in 18 and 19. Both are the most since 11. Caused by lost farming markets due to tariffs.
      Joe opened vaccination sites across America. Stadiums were used for local and federal sites.
      The market just dropped but it’s hit all time highs under Joe. Have you heard Joe take credit for them? It hit over 100 highs under Obama Biden.
      These are gov’t statistics. I don’t debate them. You accept them or cry, you choose.

    1. He is doing exactly what his supporters want, what more than 30% of this country wants. That is to overthrow the democracy and insert a dictator.

    2. Liz Cheney kicked Mccarthy’s cowardly, treacherous, unpatriotic a$$! Her rebuttal of his disgusting propaganda was brilliant.

    3. @Colonel OfTruth The comment was flat correct. You’re no colonel. You’re not even a kernel. Sit down.

  10. this “DUMB ACT” that kevin does is wearing thin. repeat after what we all saw with our own eyes IN-SUR-REC-TION!!

    1. @The Logic Party “586 people have been charged in the Capitol insurrection so far” quit trying to play word games.

    2. @Alice Pyne-Jahneke I have a few hours of video that prove it was anything but peaceful. The worst sort of ignorance is self imposed.

    3. IN-SUR-REC-TION!! Yep, that’s exactly what it was. Carried out by Trump supporters, after being incited by Donald himself, and his cult of sycophants.

  11. Jim “I didn’t see any sex abuse” Jordan was denied the right to destroy the jan 6th commission, that was a very sensible move by Pelosi. Brave and good!

    1. @Peter Parker the party of science blames the US top scientist for covid,the party of logic still believes trump will be back in office in March.. no wait June…oh oops guess now it’s November Republicans are a joke right now,before trump they were decent and now after trump they’re just clowns in suits

  12. Language close to what Kevin is using here incited the insurrection: This is THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE sounds like Marge

  13. “Why this and why that…. and why didn’t we want to investigate ‘why this and why that’ in the first place?!”

    If I’d been Pelosi I’d have said “I accept Jordan if he agrees to wear a clown costume… just to show that he’s really part of a circus!”

  14. Pelosi: *uses her constitutionally granted power”
    McCarthy: “This woman is destroying the house”
    What…?

    1. He is planting the seed that democracy is dead. He Starts and Ends his speech planting that Authoritarian seed, that “destroyed the institution”. The GOP is actively overthrowing our democracy.

  15. “The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters,”

    — Kevin McCarthy

  16. MCCARTHY is talking credibility and he has nothing of it. He should be one who will be investigated. Shameless lunatic

  17. Kevin “Joe” McCarthy is just a kid who didn’t get his candy. After this, he will be crying non-stop.
