Today, in a rare move that showed the completely partisan nature of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Jan. 6 Select Committee, Pelosi refused to accept the members proposed for the Committee by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Pelosi objected to Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) from among the five people who McCarthy picked. Jordan had indicated that he would want to question Pelosi about security provided on Jan. 6.
In response, McCarthy pulled all the members and issued a statement saying they weren’t going to go along with such a “sham” process unless she accepted the two members.

Pelosi actually gave McCarthy a gift, making it very clear how political it all was by her actions in denying Republican appointees, a very uncommon move.
But Pelosi can count on one Republican to go along with her partisan effort, however. Rep. Liz Cheney (Not Really a Republican – WY) came out with a statement of her own, supporting Pelosi and attacking McCarthy, the man who got her booted from her Republican leadership role.
Cheney was asked if she “personally urged the Speaker to take this step?” She responds by saying she agreed with what Pelosi has done, avoiding answering if she was behind Pelosi doing it.

So she wasn’t just saying that she’s agreeing with Pelosi, she’s not denying she might have been behind the suggestion. Yikes. And how is this woman still a Republican, at this point?
According to the Daily Caller, she also went after McCarthy. “Any person who would be third in line to the presidency must demonstrate a commitment to the constitution and a commitment to the rule of law, and Minority Leader McCarthy has not done that,” she said.
Despite Pelosi’s actions, Cheney still claimed this would be a non-partisan investigation.
“I’m absolutely certain we’ll have a nonpartisan investigation,” @Liz_Cheney says

So not only is she completely a minion of Pelosi, which she’s not hiding it at this point, she’s a stupid one at that or would like to take us in with such a lie. Anyone that ever had any sympathy for this person should take a look at what she’s become now and learn a lesson. She needs to be removed from any committees she’s on and she needs to get primaried into next week. Having Cheney on the Committee doesn’t make it bipartisan. It makes it fully craven people serving the Democratic cause.
It's Speaker Pelosi's kangaroo court.
NOTHING Ms. Pelosi does or says can be taken as representative of reality, of truth, of justice, or of virtue.
Assume the precise opposite of her and of anyone validating her. https://t.co/bne2HwU7bc

DC groupthink a few months ago was that this useful ally to the Democratic establishment should retain her position in GOP *leadership.* She's sunk so low she's now defending what her replacement accurately calls Pelosi's "radical authoritarianism." https://t.co/w3ZRzuO5Om
