Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), chair of the House Freedom Caucus, is pressuring House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to bring forth a rule change that would sanction for the abstraction of Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) from the House Republican Conference, according to a letter obtained by Breitbart News.
Biggs called Cheney and Kinzinger “two spies for the Democrats” because of them being privy to GOP Conference conversations while simultaneously accommodating on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) January 6 cull committee, according to Biggs’s letter, dated September 2.

The Arizona Republican contended that the dyad of Never Trumpers should not be able to heedfully aurally perceive in on upcoming conference discussions centered around forfending against the predominantly Democrat position that the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 amounted to an “insurrection.” Biggs verbalized he did not trust that the dyad would not report back to Pelosi’s committee and hamper Republicans’ facility to forfend themselves given Cheney and Kinzinger both have sided with Democrats in their stances on the January 6 chain of events.
“Congresswoman Cheney and Congressman Kinzinger are two spies for the Democrats that we currently invite to the meetings, despite our inability to trust them,” Biggs verbally expressed. “Speaker Pelosi is perpetuating the mendacious narrative that House Republicans are responsible for the events that took place at the Capitol on January 6th.”
She has continued to brand the events as an insurrection, despite the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation testifying the events do not meet that threshold. During his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Director Wray specifically stated that most people gathered at the Capitol were truly “peaceful protestors exercising their First Amendment rights.” Many others weren’t engaged in violence, they were simply where they were not legally supposed to be, and a number of those have been charged with trespassing. And, with justification, the FBI and the Department of Justice have been investigating and arresting those who attacked police and vandalized the Capitol.
But the FBI’s investigation and prosecutions are not enough for Speaker Pelosi. She needs publicity and narrative. She needs to demonize “Republicans.” And this Select Committee is her path for doing so. The Select Committee sanctions her to target the Republican Members of Congress she cerebrates will be most salutary to her narrative; those that she cerebrates she may be able to unseat from Congress; those whom targeting will raise her the most quantity of mazuma.
Once Speaker Pelosi made her intentions for the Select Committee clear by denying Congressman Jim Banks and Congressman Jim Jordan from serving on the Select Committee, you rightly requested that no other Republican Members agree to serve on her witch-hunt taskforce. Congresswoman Cheney and Congressman Kinzinger defied that request, offering to aid the Democrats in their investigation. We cannot trust these Members to sit in our Republican Conference meetings while we plan our defense against the Democrats.
Read a full copy of Biggs’s letter below: Pelosi on July 1 culled eight members to accommodate on her cull committee, which the House had voted in favor of 222–190. At the time, only two “Republicans,” Cheney and Kinzinger — two of the most candid Republican opponents of former President Donald Trump — had voted in favor of the committee.
In integration to seven Democrats, Pelosi appointed Cheney to the committee, and later additionally appointed Kinzinger after McCarthy — who was granted a cull of five members to make for a total of 13 members on the committee — pulled all his culls off the committee when Pelosi abnegated two of them, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Jim Banks (R-IN).
McCarthy, as he was fuming during a press conference, promulgated he would forgo his participation in the committee process entirely, calling it a “sham” that has “lost all legitimacy” because of the repudiation of two of his members. Nevertheless, Cheney and Kinzinger have bucked party lines and opted to participate on the investigative committee alongside the seven Democrat members.
The committee, which has subpoena puissance, has already held a aurally perceiving and issued its first wave of document requests — from eight executive branch agencies and 35 gregarious media and communications companies. The committee is seeking, among hundreds of designations, communication records for Trump and his family members, Biggs, Jordan, and several other congressional Republicans.
