Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is considering adding conspiracy theorist and former Rep. Denver Riggleman as an adviser to her partisan January 6 committee.

The report comes just one day after Pelosi rejected ranking Republicans Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio and Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana from sitting on her 13-member January 6 commission. In her statement riddled with overdramatic lies claiming the Capitol riot was “the worst domestic assault on American Democracy since the Civil War” and a “terrorist mob attack.”

Riggleman is a friend of the corrupt corporate media who used his past interest searching for Bigfoot as an example to condemn QAnon and punish Republicans for raising questions about alleged voter fraud in the 2020 election.

“I’ve been a victim of disinformation,” Riggleman told MSNBC in December. “…I just wanted people to know that belief systems can completely overtake your life view … We’re certainly seeing insanity being weaponized and monetized and a massive grift across the internet and all of it’s based on things that are massively false they’re not even close to being real.”

Riggleman also expressed his support for censoring the dissemination of COVID “disinformation” online which he said, “might be the biggest conspiratorial grift in history.”

Riggleman is not the only Republican who has chosen to cross his party and join forces with Pelosi. Rep. Liz Cheney, who was ousted from her position in House leadership due after she refused to support the GOP, sided with the Democrat who accused Jordan and Banks of being unfit to investigate the “truth” about January 6.

“I agree with what the speaker has done,” she said.

On Tuesday, Pelosi accused Republicans of turning the January 6 committee into a political circus and doubled down on her partisan comments about Republicans and their “mischaracterization” of the Capitol riot.

“With respect for the integrity of the investigation … and in light of statements and actions taken by them, I could not appoint them,” Speaker Pelosi says on rejecting Congressmen Jordan and Banks for the Jan. 6th Select Committee. pic.twitter.com/8WZhi2cp4g
