I’m disappointed that Speaker Pelosi has rejected prospective members submitted by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Pelosi should take her cue from the late Sen. Sam Ervin (D-N.C.) when he chaired the “Watergate Committee” in 1973–74. Sen. Ervin agreed to include Sen. Edward Gurney (R-Fla.), a vocal supporter of Richard Nixon, on the committee. He understood that all viewpoints needed to be represented so that there would be a balanced approach to the issues before that committee.

Thanks and keep up the great work.
