Fox News host Laura Ingraham criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to exclude Republican Minority Parliamentary Leader Kevin McCarthy’s choices for the Jan. 6 commission on Wednesday on “The Ingraham Angle “.
“She promised bipartisanship, but of course it was all a lie,” Ingraham said.
The Speaker of the House dismissed Republican Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio and Jim Banks of Indiana in a statement released by his office on Wednesday.
“Because Pelosi wants full control over the process, she vetoed the two most effective Republicans,” Ingraham said.
Ingraham also pointed out that President Pelosi said “no” to “an investigation into the origins of COVID, but yes to an investigation committee on January 6”.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded to Pelosi’s rejections by removing the 5 GOP members from the committee. Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney is the only Republican nominated to the panel by Pelosi.
At a press conference Wednesday, McCarthy said the GOP “will conduct our own investigation.”
Ingraham argued that “Republicans must continue to show that Democrats have a radical agenda to change this country forever.”

“Over the past year, Democrats have done everything in their power to keep the country locked up for as long as possible. They would love to do it again if they could, but now they want to lock us in the narrative January 6 for as long as possible, as nothing else is happening in the world ”
The Fox News host further suggested that the Democratic Party has no interest in bipartisanship. “They are following Nancy Pelosi and her efforts to poison the well, accuse Republicans of fascism and drive their opponents out of public life.”
