Quigley to Republicans: There is no place on this committee for unserious members

Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05) released the following statement after Speaker Nancy Pelosi requested that Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy offer replacement appointments for Representatives Jim Jordan and Jim Banks to serve on the January 6 committee:

“There is no place on this committee for unserious members. Speaker Pelosi absolutely made the right decision by rejecting GOP members who have made it clear they would use this platform to grandstand and spew misinformation. In fact, Congressman Banks has already broadcasted his intention to sabotage the proceedings.

“I would remind Republicans who will inevitably complain about the Speaker’s decision that they were given several opportunities to vote for a commission structured differently. They rejected those opportunities. Now, they must live with the consequences of their own actions.”
