Pelosi set to appoint GOP's Kinzinger to Jan. 6 committee

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday she is likely to appoint GOP lawmaker Adam Kinzinger to the House Select Committee on January 6.

"I’m not about to announce it right this minute, but you could say that that is the direction that I would be going on," Pelosi said during an appearance on ABC and added more Republicans could be named to sit on the panel.

Earlier, Pelosi formed the committee to investigate the January Capitol riots and selected several outspoken critics of former President Donald Trump, including Republican Liz Cheney, to be a part of the panel. Kinzinger was one of GOP lawmakers who voted to impeach Trump for allegedly inciting the riots.
