House Speaker Nancy Pelosi added Republican Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger to her Jan. 6 commission.
Pelosi told ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos that she planned to make the addition during a Sunday morning appearance on “This Week,” and within hours reports began circulating that he had been added. Pelosi also defended her decision to reject Republican Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Jim Banks of Indiana from the group.
Stephanopoulos began by asking Pelosi about her decision to remove Jordan and Banks from the bipartisan commission, noting that Republicans had been very critical of the move.
“I believe the work of this committee, in order to retain the confidence of the American people, must act in a way that has no partisanship, is all about patriotism and I’m very proud of the members of the committee and I’m certain they will accomplish that goal,” Pelosi replied. “We have to, again, ignore the antics of those who do not want to find the truth. We will find the truth. That truth will have the confidence of the American people because it will be done patriotically and not in a partisan way.”
