Rivolta del Campidoglio: House creates committee to investigate Jan. 6 attacco

Il voto è stato 222-190 with two Republicans – Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney and Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger – joining with all Democrats to establish the committee.

Democrats had wanted to form an independent panel modeled after the respected 9/11 Commission and the House passed a bipartisan bill to do so on May 19. But Senate Republicans filibustered the commission and effectively killed the creation of a nonpartisan body to probe the Jan. 6 attacco.

Without any pathway forward in the Senate, Presidente della Camera Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., took matters into her own hands and used her power to pursue a select committee in the House that will be controlled by Democrats.

The committee is charged with investigating the circumstances surrounding thedomestic terrorist attackand issuing a final report with recommendations for corrective measures. There’s no timetable for the work to be completed, meaning the committee could keep the Jan. 6 attack in the headlines well into the 2022 midterm election year.

It will find the truth, which clearly the Republicans fear,” Pelosi said Wednesday in a floor speech ahead of the vote.
