“I can’t imagine anyone voting against the establishing commission on the greatest assault since the Civil War on the Capitol,” Biden told reporters Thursday.

The House 통과 legislation on May 19 to form the independent panel with support from 35 공화당 원, despite opposition from former President Donald Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. The bill now needs 60 votes to advance in the 50-50 split Senate, which is an uphill climb with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., also opposing the commission. McConnell argued there are already enough investigations into the Jan. 6 공격.
