House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pulling his five Republican members selected to join the House committee that's investigating the January 6 insurrection, following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to reject two of McCarthy's picks.

The committee will have Republican representation from one member: Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump who was one of Pelosi's eight choices to serve on the committee. Still the refusal by the leader of House Republicans to participate is sure to inject even more partisanship into the already high-profile committee.
