McCarthy Pulls January 6th Committee Picks

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pulling all five Republicans off the select committee on the January 6th Capitol attack.

This comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected GOP Representatives Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio as picks to serve on the committee.

McCarthy said this represents an “egregious abuse of power” and will irreparably damage this institution.

The California Republican said Pelosi has made this panel lose all legitimacy and credibility.

He said she must reverse course in order for any Republicans to serve on the committee.
