Today, Congressman Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) issued the following statement regarding Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to seat all five Republican nominees for the Select Committee on January 6. 

“As Nancy Pelosi continues wasting time and resources pursuing her partisan investigation into January 6th, I support Leader McCarthy’s decision to boycott this sham process until Pelosi seats all five Republican nominees. Pelosi’s decision to deny the input of members who have served our country in the military and in law enforcement is flat-out wrong and is a complete abuse of power. This is the exact reason why I voted against creating the Select Committee on January 6 – Congress should not waste taxpayer dollars on a partisan witch hunt that will serve no purpose other than demonizing an entire political party and weaponizing the events of January 6.”
