Kentucky Republicans also expressed interest in what else the House selection committee investigating the attack on the Capitol would discover, in relation to Republican leaders in the House, who dismissed the commission’s work as political.
McConnell told CNN’s Manu Raju when asked if he had been in contact with Meadows and or White House officials to urge Trump to do more to stop the riots. “But I think we’re all watching what’s going on on the House side, and it will be interesting to reveal all the participants involved.”
Deputies Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, both Republicans and members of the committee, voted with Democrats in favor of the introduction.
Mississippi Representative Bennie Thompson, a Democrat and chair of the selection committee, told Raju Tuesday that the panel will “make a decision within a week or so of submitting” the author’s name. dummy of the text for Meadows. At this point, he added, the panel only identified House members who sent text messages to their former House colleagues, not senators.
Thompson said the committee felt it was “important” to get the content out first before making it public.
“We will then make a self-assessment before the committee on whether and when we will release them,” he said. “We’ll do it. I can’t tell you exactly when that will happen.”
