Former 5th district Congressman Denver Riggleman will serve as a senior staffer on the partisan January 6th House select committee. Last year Riggleman was beaten by Bob Good in a Republican primary for Congress. Good went on to win the general election and now represents Virginia’s 5th district.
>>>Riggleman’s hiring comes after House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy decided not to appoint any members to the panel and called it a “sham.” He had originally tapped five Republicans to serve on the committee but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected two of them, prompting McCarthy to withdraw his members completely….
Pelosi later appointed two Republicans who have been critical of Trump, his role in the insurrection and his lies about widespread election fraud — Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger and Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney. Cheney recommended Riggleman, also a Trump critic, for the job on the panel.<<<
More evidence that Denver’s not a Republican. (As if we needed it.)
