Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) said Wednesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) rejection of his and Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) participation in the January 6 commission proves that the investigation is nothing more than a “purely partisan exercise.”
Pelosi announced Wednesday that she rejected House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) selection of Banks and Jordan to serve on the commission to investigate the January 6 riots and protests.
Banks, the Republican Study Committee (RSC) chairman, said that this proves the partisan nature of the commission, saying:
I’m a sitting member of Congress and served my country in Afghanistan and the Speaker knows how hard I will fight for my country. We said all along that this was a purely partisan exercise by the Democrats and Nancy Pelosi’s rejection of me and Jim Jordan shows once again she is the most partisan figure in America today.
