The House 通过了 legislation on May 19 to form the independent panel with support from 35 共和党人, despite opposition from former President Donald Trump and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, 卡利夫. The bill now needs 60 votes to advance in the 50-50 参议院分裂, 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 攻击.
