Via TTN:

On Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially selected a second Republican to serve on the select Jan. 6th Committee. She selected anti-Trump Rep. Adam Kinzinger after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled all of his nominees from the panel last week.

The Hill reports:

“He brings great patriotism to the Committee’s mission: to find the facts and protect our Democracy,” Pelosi said Sunday in a statement.

Kinzinger, in a biting statement accepting the seat, hammered those Trump allies spreading “lies and conspiracy theories” about the election and the Jan. 6 attack, warning that those voices pose an existential threat to the nation’s democratic traditions.

“Let me be clear, I’m a Republican dedicated to conservative values, but I swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution — and while this is not the position I expected to be in or sought out, when duty calls, I will always answer,” he said.

“This moment requires a serious, clear-eyed, non-partisan approach,” he added. “We are duty-bound to conduct a full investigation on the worst attack on the Capitol since 1814 and to make sure it can never happen again.”

Kinzinger was one of 10 House Republicans that voted to impeach Trump.

After Pelosi rejected two of Rep. McCarthy’s nominees it’s unclear if Pelosi will select other House members, specifically Republicans to serve on the so-called bipartisan panel.

‘He brings…PATRIOTISM????’ He brings inflammatory hatred of Mr. Trump and a bitter end to objectivity in the JANUARY 6th Commission. And Bolshevik Nasty Pelovsky would put Trump in a Gulag if she could. Nasty, the Lord is watching you. He knows the darkness of your innermost soul and he is on to you and he knows each and every one of your dirty little tricks.
