Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during a Jan. 6 televised hearing by the select committee at a news conference Thursday.
“Nancy Pelosi’s fictitious committee is illegitimate and its sole purpose is to punish political opponents of Democrats,” Stefanik said of the committee. “That won’t stop another January 6 from happening. It’s not about finding out why Nancy Pelosi left the capital so ill-prepared that day, and it does absolutely nothing to address the many crises that Americans suffer every day because of Joe Biden. [and] Nancy Pelosi’s far-left radical agenda. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Elise Stefanik blames Liz Cheney for soliciting donations from former Trump aide, her committee has been subpoenaed)
Many Republicans boycotted the committee after Pelosi barred Republican Representatives Jim Jordan of Ohio and Jim Banks of Indiana from serving on the committee. Pelosi nominated Republican Representatives Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois to serve on the committee.
Stefanik claimed Democrats were using the hearing to distract the American people from a list of policy failures and issues they were unaware of.
“As House Republicans, we will continue to focus on the issues that matter to the American people and how to resolve the many crises that Joe Biden and the agenda of House Democrats have created,” Stefanik said. “Historically high gas prices that have now doubled since Joe Biden took office. Over 70% of infant formula in our country is out of stock. In my home district, I have a nine months, they’re rationing formula. This is the United States of America, folks, this is unacceptable and it’s directly because of Joe Biden.”
The committee hearing will take place on Thursday evening and will be broadcast live by most broadcast and news networks. Democrats have told multiple outlets their goal is to keep Americans outraged over the Capitol riot in the 2024 election.
Stefanik and Pelosi did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
