GOP lawmakers have decried House Democrats’ Jan. 6 commission as being a purely partisan venture. Republicans have continued to push back against the initiative led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for stacking members with a similar agenda.

On Sunday, Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey (R) said the commission was not bipartisan, giving the advantage to Democrats. Toomey added the mission of the group doesn’t seem to focus on getting to the bottom of the incident like the proposal in the Upper Chamber or ongoing investigations by the Department of Justice.

Additionally, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) issued a statement slamming Pelosi for playing politics and not taking the commission seriously. McCarthy claimed the Democrat speaker hand picked members to satisfy her own agenda and sidestepped months of possible negotiations on a bipartisan commission.

This comes after Pelosi blocked two of McCarthy’s picks to be on the commission, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jim Banks (R-Ind.) earlier this week. Both Jordan and Banks have voiced their support for President Trump. Rep. Banks stressed the move is simply an attempt to deflect Pelosi’s own failures in preventing the clash.

Instead, the House speaker nominated Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney (R) and Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R), both known for being outspoken critics of the 45th president.

In the meantime, police officers with the U.S. Capitol Police Department are expected to testify in the committee’s first public hearing on Tuesday.
