Pelosi suggested Thursday that she would consider appointing more Republicans to the Jan. 6 probe, less than 24 hours after she nixed two vocally pro-Trump GOP lawmakers for the select panel.

Denver Riggleman (R-Va.), a possible pick as Cheney’s outside adviser in the investigation.

Kinzinger discussed his desire to join the select panel with other lawmakers before
