Democratic Rep. Says Kevin McCarthy Could Put Boebert or Marjorie Taylor Greene on 1/6 Committee to ‘Bend the Knee’ to Trump

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said on MSNBC Friday night that he expects that Donald Trump will recommend to Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy members of Congress he wants to serve on the soon-to-be-formed House Select Committee to investigate the January 6 insurrection.

Earlier in the day, McCarthy was asked by a press conference if he’d commit to avoid appointing Republican members who have downplayed what occurred that day. McCarthy dodged by saying that Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who announced she will form the committee, hadn’t told him anything about it.
