Home Minority Chief Kevin McCarthy labeled Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger “Pelosi Republicans” after they joined the 1/6 Committee.
I requested Minority Chief Kevin McCarthy what he makes of GOP Reps Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger sitting on the January sixth Choose Committee.
He replied in two phrases right here on the WH: “Pelosi Republicans.”

Kevin McCarthy’s Plan To Undermine The 1/6 Committee Has Blown Up In His Face
Kevin McCarthy and Donald Trump cooked up a scheme to undermine the legitimacy of the 1/6 Committee and its findings.
McCarthy and Trump deliberate to place a number of disruptors on the committee who would hijack the investigation and switch it right into a 1/6 probe of Nancy Pelosi. McCarthy and Trump selected two Jims, Reps. Jordan and Banks for this process.
They by no means anticipated that Speaker Pelosi would boot each of their “ringers” off of the committee.
Minority Chief McCarthy responded by pulling all of his decisions off of the committee in order that he might make the investigation look partisan.
Speaker Pelosi was as soon as once more forward of McCarthy and responded by including Republican Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) to the committee whereas suggesting that extra Republicans have expressed curiosity in becoming a member of.
The one factor that McCarthy achieved together with his stunt was to make it possible for none of Trump’s loyalists are on the committee.
Given this context, no surprise McCarthy is sulking.
