Republican voters in Nevada who watched the Jan. 6 Select Committee hearings labeled them “reprehensible” and “disgusting” while becoming more supportive of former President Donald Trump, NBC News reported Friday.
“It might as well be impeachment No. 3 for Donald Trump,” Judy Cameron, a retiree in Reno and Republican primary voter, told NBC News. “This is their big push to get Donald Trump off the ballot.”
The voters in the swing state instead directed their anger towards the select committee, which reportedly has shifted its focus to persuading the Justice Department to file charges and to make changes to the Electoral Count Act, according to NBC News.
“It’s all political and designed to try to prevent Donald Trump from running for president again,” Tom Berenato of Clark County said to NBC News, pointing to the exclusion of opposing views by Pelosi.
Pelosi later appointed Republican Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, both outspoken critics of Trump, to the panel.
Voters’ views remained unchanged after testimony from former attorney general William Barr and former Trump campaign manager Bill Slepian, NBC News reported, noting that Republican voters dismissed the officials as Republicans In Name Only (RINOs).
