Following the rejections, McCarthy revoked all of his appointments and threatened to form his own committee after she rejected them based on their history with the former president Donald Trump.
Pelosi was then asked on ABC’s This Week, if she had plans on appointing more members and said she, “that would be my plan.”
“[Kinzinger] and other Republicans have expressed an interest to serve on the select committee and I wanted to appoint three of the members Leader McCarthy suggested but he withdrew their names,” Pelosi told the media outlet.
Following her her nomination, Kinzinger announced to his followers that he would accept the position.
“For months we have searched for answers and what process we should use to get them,” he stated. “For months, lies and conspiracy theories have been spread, threatening our self-governance.”
“Today I was asked by the Speaker to serve on the House Select Committee to Investigate January 6th and I humbly accepted. I will work diligently to ensure we get to the truth and hold those responsible for the attack fully accountable,” Kinzinger concluded.
