"That's going to be a decision for Leader Pelosi and likely Whip Hoyer to make. I absolutely agree that the select committee, if it's going to be fair, would be evenly split," Wasserman Schultz said at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in Washington, DC. "This is an investigative committee. If they want to ensure that the investigation ... [is] fair there is no reason to reject the leader's request to have the committee be evenly split."

"And I do think that our leadership should seriously consider not participating if the process is not going to be fair," she said.

Her remarks came one day after TPM and other news outlets reported that the Republican-led House committee would have 7 GOP members and 5 Democratic members.
