Liz Cheney Joins House Committee Investigating Capitol Invasion

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), in a masterful power move, has named Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) to serve on the select committee investigating the attack on the Capitol by a mob of pro-Trump supporters.

You can’t say it’s not a bipartisan committee when you CHOOSE a member of the other party to take part.

From The Hill:

To lead the committee, Pelosi tapped Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee who had authored the bill creating the independent commission.

Pelosi’s other picks are House Administration Committee Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.), Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) and Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.).

House Minority Leader Andrew McCarthy will be allowed to name 5 members to the select committee.

Republicans could have elected to form a bipartisan investigation committee but voted that down.
