利兹·切尼 (Liz Cheney) 指责吉姆·班克斯 (Jim Banks) 作为 1 月的排名成员错误地签署了一封信 6 委员会

共和党代表. 吉姆班克斯在众议院哀叹,众议院议长南希佩洛西阻止他在调查一月份的众议院委员会任职。 6 星期四袭击美国国会大厦.

但是, Banks sent a letter to at least one government agency falsely claiming that he is ranking member of the committee in his signature.
Fellow Republican Liz Cheney, who serves as vice chair of the committee, called Banks out for his actions on the House floor as the House began debate on the criminal contempt referral of Steve Bannon, 特朗普的盟友, for evading a subpoena.
    He noted that the Speaker had determined that he wouldn’t be on the committeeCheney said. “So I would like to introduce for the record a number of letters the gentleman of Indiana has been sending to federal agencies.
      According to a letter provided to CNN, Banks wrote to the Department of the Interior on September 16 asking to be provided with any information the department turns over to the House committee.
        I ask that you provide me any information that is submitted to the Select Committee. 另外, please include me on any update or briefing that you provide,” Banks wrote.
        Banks signed the letter as ranking member of the committee, while admitting that Pelosi blocked his appointment.
          The letter reads: “The House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy appointed me to serve as the Ranking Member of the Select Committee. 然而, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to allow me to fulfill my duties as Ranking Member.
          银行业务’ letter to the Department of the Interior came after the committee investigating January 6 sent requests of documents to multiple government agencies in their efforts to make progress in their investigation.
          A spokesman for Banks did not address that the lawmaker signed the letter as ranking member in a statement to CNN when rebutting the characterization that Banks misrepresented his position.
          The letter clearly states that Rep. Banks was refused the opportunity to fulfill his duties as Ranking Member,” 发言人说.
          This is a bizarre Democrat narrative meant to distract from the actual contents of Rep. 银行业务’ letter and to avoid talking about the actual activities of the Select Committee, which are partisan, authoritarian and indefensible.
          Banks was initially selected by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy to serve on the committee, but Pelosi rejected Banks along with GOP Rep. Jim Jordan from serving in July. McCarthy then pulled all five Republican nominees he had tapped for the panel.
            民主代表. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, who serves on the select committee, suggested Banksposing as ranking member of the committee could break House rules.
            That’s not only delusional and fantastical, but it might be some kind of violation of the rules of the House,” Raskin said.
