House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday for rejecting two Republican nominees to the Jan. 6 House Select Committee.
Stefanik reacted to Pelosi’s decision to block Republican Reps. Jim Banks of Indiana and Jim Jordan of Ohio from serving on the House Select Committee that aims to investigate the events of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
