Thursday, Rep. Adam Schiff issued a statement after being selected by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be one of eight on the newly formed January 6th committee.
On January 6, our democracy survived its greatest threat since the Civil War.
We’ve yet to learn the truth of that sad day.
But we will have a full accounting.
I’m humbled to serve on the January 6 Select Committee. It’s time to get to work.
Wednesday, Schiff had tweeted:
We gave the GOP every chance to work on a bipartisan commission to investigate January 6.
They said no. Over and over and over again.
So is anyone really surprised that Republicans are – yet again – trying to bury the truth about the insurrection?
Enough. We have work to do.
Other members of the committee are chairperson Rep. Bennie Thompson.
Other members are: Reps. Zoe Lofgren, the chair of House Administration Committee; Adam Schiff, chair of the Intelligence Committee, as well as Reps. Pete Aguilar of California, Stephanie Murphy of Florida, Jamie Raskin of Maryland and Elaine Luria of Virginia.
