In what could not have been a more obvious show of fear and guilt, the GOP has refused to allow a congressional commission to investigate an attack on the White House by rabid Trump supporters determined to overthrow the government and subvert democracy. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, however, is moving forward with her own commission, and an investigation will take place.

The commission’s framework was introduced in that new legislation on Monday and include subpoena power as well as a chair selected by the Democratic House leader. 13 members will make up the committee and six of them will be chosen only after a conversation between Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Although there is no guarantee that Pelosi will allow him to choose members to sit on the commission (Marjorie Taylor Greene has expressed interest, after all), the legislation makes clear that Pelosi wants the commission to be a bipartisan effort.

In a statement, Pelosi said:

‘Sadly, as of last week, there remains no prospect for additional votes from Republican Senators to create the National Commission to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol Complex.

‘Over the weekend, proposed legislation to establish a Select Committee to investigate the January 6th insurrection was drafted, and it has now been introduced and sent to the Rules Committee.

‘January 6th was one of the darkest days in our nation’s history.  It is imperative that we establish the truth of that day and ensure such an attack cannot again happen.  The Select Committee will investigate and report upon the facts and causes of the attack and report recommendations for preventing any future assault.

‘Senate Republicans did Mitch McConnell a ‘personal favor’ rather than their patriotic duty and voted against the bipartisan commission negotiated by Democrats and Republicans.  But Democrats are determined to find the truth.’
