Even Nancy Pelosi picking which Republicans would sit on the January 6th commission was too much for Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine).
According to Town Hall:
On Sunday’s edition of CNN’s “State of the Union,” many topics were discussed between host Jake Tapper and Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME). What’s particularly grabbing headlines, though, is the senator’s comments about Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s select committee for January 6.
Tapper asked if Collins “do you have faith in” what he referred to as “this bipartisan committee,” stressing that Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) were on the committee. When Tapper tried to push back against her referring to the committee as “Speaker Pelosi’s partisan committee that she has set up” Collins explained her reasoning:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was afforded five picks for the select committee, though Speaker Pelosi had veto power. McCarthy ultimately pulled all of his picks after the speaker objected to Reps. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Jim Jordan (R-OH).
Last Sunday, Pelosi announced she was adding Rep. Kinzinger to the committee. She had already announced days before that she was adding Rep. Cheney.
Nancy Pelosi has turned the event in to a circus and even her colleagues are not taking it seriously.
