* Speaker Pelosi was OK with the appointment of US Rep. Rodney Davis and two other Republicans, but not these two…
Plans for a bipartisan committee to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection fell apart Wednesday after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) moved to block two controversial Republicans appointed by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) from sitting on the panel — paving the way for two separate and largely partisan investigations of the violent attack on the Capitol.
Pelosi called on McCarthy to name two new Republicans to the committee after refusing to appoint conservative Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jim Banks (R-Ind.), a privilege she has as speaker. As staunch backers of former president Donald Trump, both members voted against his impeachment and pushed to overturn the election results certifying Joe Biden as president.
“With respect for the integrity of the investigation, with an insistence on the truth and with concern about statements made and actions taken by these Members, I must reject the recommendations of Representatives Banks and Jordan to the Select Committee,” Pelosi said in a statement. “The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision.”

Friend, the Democrats were OUTRAGED when they learned strong conservatives like Jim Jordan and I were standing up to Nancy Pelosi and her sham investigation into January 6th.
They were so scared that I was going to expose them for the lies they have been feeding the American people, they refused to seat our GOP members.
What is Nancy Pelosi hiding and why is she trying to ruin THE PEOPLE’S HOUSE for it?
The January 6th Commission is another attempt from Nancy Pelosi and other radical Democrats to LIE about what happened on January 6th. Now, she is denying Jim Jordan and GOP dissent because she knows we will hold her accountable! It’s clear that this is just a partisan ploy to attack President Trump.
Nancy Pelosi is using politics to attack President Trump. This egregious abuse of power is an insult to Republicans, Patriots, and all red-blooded Americans!
That’s why I NEED your help, Friend.

The Democrats REFUSE to solve the crisis on our southern border, stop rising inflation, or help working-class Americans.
All they want to do is ATTACK, DIVIDE and CANCEL strong Conservatives all across our country.
Nancy Pelosi was afraid that we were going to expose how power hungry she is. Now her plan is to cancel Republicans from fighting back!

That is not the claim of a person who is itching to be governor. And if he is, that’s probably not the sort of thing or people (Jim Jordan, for one) he should be associating with.
Anyway, deep breaths before commenting. Thanks.
*** UPDATE *** DPI…
The following is a statement from DPI Executive Director Abby Witt in response to Congressman Rodney Davis attempting to fundraise off a “sham” insurrection investigation:
“Too bad Congressman Davis isn’t as hysterical about insurrectionists storming the Capitol as he is about fundraising deadlines. Rodney Davis has never cared about finding the truth of the Jan. 6 insurrection and is only focused on proving his credentials as an extreme GOP Trump-loyalist. We see through his hypocrisy and don’t need Rodney Davis in Illinois or the halls of Congress.”
