CNN: Pelosi Blocks Jim Jordan, Jim Banks from Jan. 6 Committee

Pelosi said in a statement: ‘The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision’

EXCERPT:

PHILLIP: "Breaking news coming in right now. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has released a statement rejecting the recommendations of Representatives Jim Banks and Jim Jordan to the January 6th Select Committee. She says in this statement that, 'I must reject the recommendations of Representatives Banks and Jordan to the Select Committee. The unprecedented nature of January 6th demands this unprecedented decision.' She says she has concerns about the statements that they have made, as well as the actions they have taken, and that leads her to do this. She has veto power over the folks who are on the Republican side here too. And what she’s referring to in terms of their actions is this, that of the five people that McCarthy recommended, three of them voted to reject the election results, two of them are Jim Banks and Jim Jordan, the third is Troy Nehls. But the reason that Troy Nehls is likely staying on this committee is because he has some subject matter expertise. He’s a former sheriff, he has some law enforcement expertise that might justify him being on this committee. But it is an extraordinary move by Pelosi to do this."
