WASHINGTON, D.C. (WSYR-TV) —  Congressman John Katko told NewsChannel 9 on Monday that he will not vote in support of a select committee proposal to investigate the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol

Katko said the panel would be skewed given its panel of eight democrats and five republicans. He went on to say he’d have a hard time envisioning a scenario where he’d take part, even if asked.
