Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) brings that progressive spark into politics that reminds people why they first became interested in politics. When a reporter tweeted that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) plans on “doing his own investigation,” into the January 6 attack, AOC did not waste any time.
She tweeted the reporter with this zinger. She wondered if he would hold his investigation on Donald Trump’s favorite social media platform, Parler:
‘And where does McCarthy plan on doing his “own investigation” into Jan 6th if he’s blocking Republicans from participating in the official Congressional investigation? Parler?’
Congressional Correspondent for The Washington Post Jacqueline Alemany tweeted that Speaker Pelosi would have to reverse course and seat all of McCarthy’s nominees or he would hold his own:
‘McCarthy’s statement: “Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.”’
In the reporter’s tweet, she included McCarthy’s statement, which read:
‘Speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken the unprecedented step of denying the minority party’s picks for the Select Committee on January 6. This represents an egregious abuse of power and will irreparably damage this institution. Denying the voices of members who have served in the military and law enforcement, as well as leaders of standing committees, has made it undeniable that this panel has lost all legitimacy and credibility and shows the Speaker is more interested in playing politics than seeking the truth.’
‘Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.’
