As NPR reports:
‘The House has passed a bipartisan plan to create a 9/11-style commission to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, despite significant opposition from Republican lawmakers.
The vote was 252-175, with 35 Republicans joining all Democrats.
The vote came the same day that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced his opposition to the commission, dealing a setback to the proposal’s chances in the U.S. Senate.
Just a day ago, McConnell, R-Ky., signaled the party was open to the commission to investigate the January riot by supporters of former President Donald Trump but added he wanted “to read the fine print.” That openness was short-lived.
“After careful consideration, I’ve made a decision to oppose the House Democrats’ slanted and unbalanced proposal for another commission to study the events of Jan. 6,” he said Wednesday on the Senate floor.’
The Republican minority ‘leadership’ is afraid the truth will come out: THEY ORGANIZED AND SUPPORTED THE JANUARY 6 INSURRECTION.
