The Trump critic joins committee after Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two Republican selections.
- House GOP leadership has opposed the formation of the committee, calling it a political exercise and pointing to continuing law-enforcement probes as adequate.
- “The Speaker has structured this select committee to satisfy her political objectives,” said Mr. McCarthy in a statement following Mr. Kinzinger’s appointment.
- “She had months to work with Republicans on a reasonable and fair approach to get answers on the events and security failures surrounding January 6. Instead, she has played politics.”
