NEWSMAX: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Monday named five Republicans to the select committee set to investigate the events of Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol, CNN reports.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio is the most well known of the five, though Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana was picked as ranking member. The other three GOP members are Reps. Rodney Davis of Illinois, Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota and Troy Nehls of Texas.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi previously named eight members to the commission and chose one Republican, Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming. Cheney has been at odds with fellow Republicans, especially over the Jan. 6 riots, in which demonstrators with flags and clothing supporting then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol building.

Pelosi has veto power over McCarthy’s picks.

The panel is scheduled to hold its first hearing next week with testimony from Capitol Police officers Harry Dunn and Aquilino Gonell and Metropolitan Police Department officers Michael Fanone and Daniel Hodges. Continue reading at Newsmax.
