Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has selected Republican Liz Cheney to serve on the select committee that will investigate the Capitol riot.

'We're very honored and proud that she has agreed to serve on the committee,' Pelosi said at her news conference Thursday when announcing news Cheney would join the panel.

Cheney voted to impeach Trump at his second trial when he was accused of insurrection over January 6.

Earlier this year she was voted out as the GOP Conference Chair and replaced with Elise Stefanik.  

The appointment came after a report emerged Thursday morning that Republican Leader Kevin McCArthy threatened his party that if anyone accepted Pelosi’s appointment, he will no longer assign them to any other committees.

Cheney is the only Republican Pelosi chose for the committee. The other panel members include Democratic Representatives Adam Schiff, Zoe Lofgren, Pete Aguilar, Chris Murphy, Jamie Raskin and Elaine Luria.

McCarthy’s threat to his party came during a closed-door meeting with freshman House Republicans on Wednesday, although it is directed at all GOP members, and was relayed to Punchbowl News by multiple people present at the meeting.

'I am not responding,' Pelosi said when asked about reported McCarthy threat. 'That is a matter for the Republican caucus.'
