During a information convention on Capitol Hill on Thursday morning, Pelosi mentioned, “We’ll see,” when requested about the potential appointment.
“I mean, there are some members that would like to be on it,” Pelosi added. “But, we’ll see.”
Rep. Bennie Thompson
, a Mississippi Democrat who’s been appointed chairman of the new committee, mentioned Thursday that adding Kinzinger to the panel has been mentioned with the speaker. Thompson mentioned if Pelosi indicators off, Kinzinger might be a “welcome addition.”
Kinzinger, a vocal Republican critic of former President Donald Trump and who was one among 10 GOP House members to vote for his second impeachment, would join Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming
as the solely Republicans on the new select committee. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled his five GOP members from the panel
, after Pelosi rejected two of McCarthy’s 5 decisions — Reps. Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio.
Kinzinger refused to remark about his potential appointment to the panel on Thursday morning.
The committee is scheduled to maintain its first listening to subsequent week.
