Even though the House of Representatives passed a bill creating a bipartisan commission to investigate what transpired on January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol, Senate Republicans decided to filibuster passage of the legislation, meaning the bill will never even reach the floor of the upper chamber.
Despite that, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made it clear that there is going to be full investigation of the insurrection which took place on 1/6, telling reporters that it took a while to get a commission set up to look at the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001:
Pelosi then added she’s optimistic details can be worked out for a commission similar to the one for 9/11, but didn’t rule out setting one up without the cooperation of Republicans:
There is going to be a 1/6 commission. If Republicans choose not to be a part of it, that’s their problem. But the American people have a right to know what happened on that fateful day earlier this year. And if an investigation proves members of the GOP played a role, they need to be booted from Congress and criminally charged.
