us capitol congress worthy christian news

(Worthy News) – The House on Wednesday approved Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s bill to establish a select committee to investigate the Jan. 6 pro-Trump attack on the Capitol, giving Democrats significant leeway to shape the inquiry after the Senate balked at establishing a bipartisan commission.

The bill passed largely along party lines, 222 to 190. It grants the speaker the authority to select the committee’s chair and eight of the 13 members.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, California Republican, will have the option to consult with Mrs. Pelosi on the appointment of the remaining five members, but she will have veto authority over Republican nominees. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
