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.

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”
