WASHINGTON — Today, Rep. Jim Banks released the following statement after the unprecedented decision by Speaker Pelosi to reject Reps. Banks and Jordan from being seated on the Select Committee to investigate January 6:
“I’m a sitting member of Congress and served my country in Afghanistan and the Speaker knows how hard I will fight for my country. We said all along that this was a purely partisan exercise by the Democrats and Nancy Pelosi’s rejection of me and Jim Jordan shows once again she is the most partisan figure in America today.
The American people deserve the truth. Unfortunately, Speaker Pelosi is afraid of the facts.”
