House rejects GOP effort to seat McCarthy's choices for Jan. 6 select panel

The House on Monday voted 218-197 to defeat Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's attempt to seat his preferred members for the Jan. 6 select committee.

Why it matters: Speaker Nancy Pelosi has vetoed two of the five Republicans McCarthy named to the panel, citing their vote against the certification of the 2020 election. McCarthy has since threatened to launch a parallel GOP investigation if she does not allow his picks.

  • The House vote comes a day before the panel's first hearing, which will feature testimonies from four police officers who were injured during the Capitol insurrection.

State of play: Last week, Pelosi vetoed McCarthy's decision to name Reps. Reps. Jim Banks (Ind.) and Jim Jordan (Ohio) to the panel, arguing they would jeopardize the investigation.

  • In response, McCarthy boycotted the committee and introduced a resolution to formally "condemn the refusal" of Pelosi to seat all five of his picks.
  • Her refusal "directly harms the legitimacy, credibility and integrity of the proceedings of the select committee," the resolution states.

Of note: Pelosi has now tapped Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), who voted to impeach the president, to fill in one of the vacancies. He joins Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), one of Pelosi's original eight picks for the panel.

  • Both voted with Democrats to table McCarthy's resolution.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
