House Republicans are now balking at the notion of participating in the House's investigation into the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two of the five Republicans that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had chosen to participate in the committee.
During a recent press conference, McCarthy said Republicans will conduct their own investigation into Jan. 6.
"We have law enforcement, we have military, we have doctors, we have people from all walks of life -- they want to know the answer, the American people deserve that," he said.
