The U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of creating a commission regarding the Riot at the Capitol Hill, according to Town Hall.
The Bill was passed by votes numbering 252-175.
All 10 Republicans that voted for Trump’s impeachment were among the 35 Republicans that joined Democrats in the vote for the commission.
Trump offered his response.
“Republicans in the House and Senate should not approve the Democrat trap of the January 6 Commission.”
“It is just more partisan unfairness and unless the murders, riots, and fire bombings in Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago, and New York are also going to be studied, this discussion should be ended immediately.”
“Republicans must get much tougher and much smarter, and stop being used by the Radical Left.”
“Hopefully, Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy are listening!”
Sen. McConnellexpressed his opposition for the commission calling it “slanted and unbalanced.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was concerned that the commission would be overlooking “political violence that has struck American cities, a Republican Congressional baseball practice, and, most recently, the deadly attack on Capitol Police on April 2, 2021.”
With McConnell opposing the commission “its chances of clearing the Senate” are “dimmed.”
McCarthy opposed the proposal along with Rep. Steve Scalise and Elise Stefanik.
From Town Hall:
On Tuesday night, Trump issued the following statement:
The commission, should it pass in the Senate, will have members from both parties. Sen. McConnell and Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) will pick the Republican members. The members cannot be anyone currently serving in Congress.
