House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tapped a mix of former President Donald Trump allies and moderates to serve on the Jan. 6 select committee, two sources confirmed to The Post on Monday.
The California leader named Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Banks of Indiana, House Administration Ranking Member Rodney Davis of Illinois, House Judiciary Ranking Member Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota and Troy Nehls of Texas to serve on the panel, the sources said.
The House passed a resolution to create the select panel largely along party lines last month after the Senate blocked a measure that would have created a 9/11-style bipartisan commission.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) previously tapped House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) to lead the panel, with Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.), Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.), Elaine Luria (D-Va.) and former House GOP leadership member Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) also serving.
The committee is scheduled to hold its first hearing next week, when it will hear testimony from four members of law enforcement who were attacked by supporters of Trump.
