Donald Trump on Monday night questioned whether Nancy Pelosi will 'investigate herself', just hours before the first hearing of her January 6 select committee.

The former president released a lengthy statement asking whether the Democrat House Speaker will address who 'didn't want extra protection' at the Capitol on the day of the riot and 'who killed Ashli Babbitt?'

Trump also pushed Pelosi to look into the 'vicious' investigations into him - including the 'Russia, Russia, Russia' probe and the ongoing criminal case into the Trump Organization by New York prosecutors - and his ongoing claims of voter fraud.

His latest reaction to the proceedings slammed as a 'sham' and 'partisan' by Republicans came as Democrats consider whether to compel him to testify in their probe.  

'Nancy Pelosi is spending a great deal of time, effort, and money on the formulation of a Fake and highly partisan January 6 Committee to ask, "what happened?"' Trump wrote in the statement through his Save America PAC.

'Will Nancy investigate herself and those on Capitol Hill who didn't want additional protection, including more police and National Guard, therefore being unprepared despite the large crowd of people that everyone knew was coming?

'Will Nancy and her Committee study the massive Voter Fraud that took place during the 2020 Presidential Election, particularly in swing states, that was the reason hundreds of thousands of people came pouring into Washington and, therefore, must be a big factor in the final Committee Report? Now would be a very good time to study the large scale Voter Fraud in our Presidential Election.

'Will Nancy release the thousands of hours of tapes so we can see the extent to which ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter played a role, while also revealing 'who killed Ashli Babbitt?' A real and thorough investigation of this must be done—and what about all of the violence, murders, riots, and fires that took place in Democrat run cities throughout the United States by ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, with virtually no consequence for this death and destruction?

'Will Nancy look into the vicious partisan investigations of Conservatives and Republicans that are taking place by prosecutors all over the Country? The five-year investigation of me, and all that so many have been through, including the fake Russia Russia Russia charge, and including the local Democrat-controlled New York prosecutors who work around the clock to get President Donald Trump, while murderers, drug dealers, and human traffickers go free!' 

The House of Representatives voted Monday night to kill a resolution from Republican leader Kevin McCarthy to get his picks on Nancy Pelosi's Capitol Riot Select Committee.

Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, who many inside the GOP want to see punished for choosing to take their seats on the panel, voted against the measure with the vote finishing 218-197.

McCarthy's resolution was the last bid to compel Pelosi to accept the five Republican members and allow them to be part of the investigation he has called a 'sham'.

He withdrew all his nominations when Pelosi refused to seat Reps Jim Banks and Jim Jordan last week.

The vote came just hours before the first hearing was set to begin on Tuesday into the investigation into January 6.  

Cheney said on Monday that McCarthy was 'childish' for labeling her and Kinzinger, the only two members of the GOP on the January 6 committee, 'Pelosi Republicans.'

'We've got very serious business here. We have important work to do,' she said to reporters on Capitol Hill.

Kinzinger told reporters on Monday that McCarthy 'can call me whatever names he wants,' before reassuring, 'I'm a Republican.'

'If the conference decided, or if Kevin decides, they want to punish Liz Cheney and I for getting to the bottom and telling the truth, I think that probably says more about them than it does for us,' he continued in response to the House Minority leader suggesting there could be consequences for the duo.

McCarthy answered 'we'll see' when asked Monday if he would punish Cheney of Wyoming and Kinzinger of Illinois for joining the Democrat-led January 6 select committee.

He called the duo of anti-Trump GOP lawmakers 'Pelosi Republicans.' 

When asked when he had last talked to them he told DailyMail.com, 'Couldn't tell you.' 

The GOP leader is under pressure from some members of his Republican caucus to crack down on Cheney and Kinzinger, who joined the panel investigating the MAGA riot at the invitation of Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 

A spokesperson for Kinzinger added, 'It would speak volumes if he took away their committee assignments to 'punish them' for upholding their oath to protecting our democracy.' 

McCarthy attended an event in the Rose Garden of the White House on Monday, marking the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. It put him in the same venue as Pelosi, who he's been arguing with over the formation of the 1/6 committee. Pelosi vetoed two of his Republican nominees to the panel and he pulled all his picks in return. 

The two didn't interact during the event but McCarthy was spotted speaking to President Joe Biden afterward. 

Pelosi and McCarthy shared a terse phone call, CNN reported, after Pelosi nixed  Republican Reps. Jim Banks and Jim Jordan from serving.

'What you're doing is unprecedented,' McCarthy said.    

The network reported that on the call voices were raised and McCarthy hinted that Pelosi's decision would come back to haunt her. 

Pelosi had announced on Wednesday that she wouldn't allow the two Republicans, both staunch allies of Donald Trump, to serve on the committee that will probe the January 6 Capitol riot.

Both Jordan and Banks voted to overturn the election the day of the insurrection.  

Later Pelosi said she would appoint Kinzinger, a Republican Trump critic, to serve on the select committee instead. She announced Cheney's appointment last month.

Putting the two Republicans on the panel allows Pelosi to tout any findings as bipartisan. 

'She's broken Congress. Then it just makes the whole committee sham and the outcome predetermined,' McCarthy told reporters at the White House on Monday. 

Calls to punish Republicans investigating the Capitol riots have grown after Kinzinger accepted Pelosi's offer to serve on the Jan. 6 committee on Sunday.

He is the second Republican and outspoken Trump critic to take a seat on the committee at the behest of the House Speaker, Cheney joined the body earlier this month. 

Kinzinger will join the other members at the committee's first hearing on Tuesday. 

 McCarthy last week pulled his five picks, which were given to Pelosi when she created the group. The move came after the speaker rejected Jordan and Banks.

Now, GOP members beyond the hard-right Freedom Caucus are calling for party leaders to remove the pair from other committees.  

'There's a lot,' one Republican told CNN about the push. 'Supporting Pelosi's unprecedented move to reject McCarthy's picks was a bridge too far.'   

Pelosi told ABC News on Sunday morning that Jordan and Banks would 'jeopardize the integrity of the investigation.'

Kinzinger agreed that the panel needed a
