WATCH: Susan Collins Says Jordan and Banks Should Have Remained on 1/6 Panel
Susan Collins may act and talk like a moderate, but she is always likely to let Liberals down. While she stood up t Donald Trump at times, she normally landed on the Conservative side of things.
Recently, Kevin McCarthy attempted to turn the 1/6 investigation into a clown show by putting Jim Banks and Jim Jordan. Collins had no problem with that. In fact, the Maine senator says Nancy Pelosi was wrong to veto the selections.
Collins told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “I fought very hard to have an independent, bipartisan, non-partisan outside commission to look at all of the events of that day and I’m very disappointed that it was not approved. I think it would have had far more credibility than Speaker Pelosi’s partisan committee that she has set up.”
When the host mentioned Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, the senator followed, “I respect both of them, but I do not think it was right for the Speaker to decide which Republicans should be on the committee. Normally if you have a select committee, the minority leader and the speaker get to pick the members.”
Tapper responded, “The reason she did that is because at least two of the members McCarthy picked to be on the committee are election liars. One of whom, Jim Jordan, is possibly even a material witness. He spoke with Trump that day.”
