As we previously reported, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision not to seat Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) to her Capitol riots committee, coupled with committee member Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) announcing her agreement with the call, provides more evidence that this whole process is no more than a gigantic partisan sham Democrats have put together to try and drag out the issue through the 2022 midterms.

New information this morning further lends credulity to the claim, with CNN reporting Pelosi “is considering” naming Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) to the committee:

During a news conference on Capitol Hill on Thursday morning, Pelosi said, “We’ll see,” when asked 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, said Thursday that adding Kinzinger to the panel has been discussed with the speaker. Thompson said if Pelosi signs off, Kinzinger will be a “welcome addition.”

Of course Kinzinger would be considered a “welcome addition,” considering he’s shown himself to not being above making fantastical allegations about his Republican colleagues and the Capitol riots that can’t be proven just like Democrats have.

The news that Pelosi was considering Kinzinger for a spot on the committee sparked some obscene gushing from CNN White House correspondent John Harwood, who took to the Twitter machine to state that though Kinzinger and Cheney were considered “outcasts” in the GOP, “they are still Republicans,” which in his mind confirmed the committee would be even “more bipartisan” if he was seated:

An hour later, a clearly moved Harwood followed-up by suggesting that Kinzinger and Cheney would “add value” to the investigation because they were “seeking to illuminate”
