Key Quotes from Davis

On 1/6 Select Committee


"We need to get some answers and regardless of the situation that we would have been in on that committee, and it would have been a partisan sham, but we would have gotten our message across, if they wouldn't have done the unprecedented thing and tried to remove Jim Jordan and Jim Banks..."

"There's a lot of bipartisanship and people respected the institution. Speaker Pelosi has torn the fabric of this institution that we all worked in and have grown to love and that can have long term consequences on the nation. It's not a coincidence, Sean and Lyndsay, that Speaker Pelosi does not want to answer questions about her and her team's role in setting the security posture pre-January 6th. Those are still questions that need to be answered and frankly, our brave Capitol police officers still don't have those answers."


On the Faith in Elections Project

"You know, what crosses state lines is the Democrats’ attempt out here in Washington to take over our state and local elections process. Our Constitution, Sean and Lyndsay, guarantees that we ought to give our authority to run elections at the state and local level, and frankly, it becomes just a travesty when we see bills like H.R. 1, that will devastate the processes that New York has in place. I wasn't aware until I went to New York the entire election process in every single county in New York is bipartisan. You have bipartisan election commissioners. We don't have that in Illinois. But that's okay because that's what those states feel works best...

"And I was so proud to sit with Claudia, and her elected officials, and election administrators, and talk about what they're doing right, what they're doing right in those communities to make sure that everybody who wants to cast a vote gets a chance to do that, and they limit the amount of opportunities to commit fraud. Proud of what Claudia's done. They're proud of her leading that Election Integrity Caucus and I was proud to be in her district just last week."
