If approved by Congress, the National Commission will investigate January 6 at the Capitol by a pro-Trump party.
Democrat leaders in the United States Congress are moving forward with the idea of setting up a national committee to investigate the January 6 U.S. Capitol scandal with former political allies of former President Donald Trump.
The U.S. House of Representatives is preparing to issue the bill Thursday, though Republican and Senate opponents will soon vote.
“Republicans can inform the people they live with, are on the side of the truth, or want to hide terrorists and Donald Trump,” Senate President Chuck Schumer told reporters Tuesday.
More than 400 people have been seated is being prosecuted by US authorities in connection with the incident on January 6 when a royal party took over the US Capitol after the political rally of then-President Donald Trump, who spoke out against the 2020 election was rigged.
When Congress meets to approve Joe Biden’s election victory, The robbers broke police barriers, Smashed the windows and doors of the Capitol and drove Congress members out of public restrooms. A woman trying to enter a House room was shot by U.S. Capitol police and a police officer who was arguing with the rioters died the next day.
Commission, wanted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has summoned a regional committee set up by Congress to investigate and report on the al-Qaeda attack on September 11, 2001. House Republicans, who remain very close and Trump, does not want to take the request.
“Our meeting is ready to hear their arguments if the committee needs it,” Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said.
With fewer Democrats in the Senate, they will need Republican support to resolve any difficulties they might have to make the money and send it to President Joe Biden to sign.
Mr McConnell said he did not want the commission’s actions to interfere with the proceedings. And McConnell says he wants to make sure Democrats don’t control the party.
“If it goes forward, it has to be a good experimenter not to move in the other direction,” McConnell told reporters at the Capitol.
The Democratic-backed proposal was approved by the House of Representatives on Tuesday, to put in place a vote that was scheduled for the entire house on May 19, Reuters reporters said.
The party vote in the committee, which Democrats endorse and Republicans oppose, came just hours after Kevin McCarthy, a Republican general and Trump’s ally, announced his opposition.
“I do not agree with the law,” McCarthy said, citing “political misconduct” and “evil” that could result from these efforts. McCarthy said the commission should also consider “political violence” in US cities during the 2020s and the 2017 shooting of Republican Congressmen.
Democrats have rejected McCarthy’s claims after his opponents called off the alliance between Democratic and Republican committee leaders.
Pelosi, a Democrat, told reporters he was disappointed but not surprised by the “fear” shown by some Republicans who “do not want to find the truth”. Schumer said the Republican opposition from McCarthy was “false”.
The law sets up a two-member committee that will work together to investigate the causes of the conspiracy, security shortcomings and intelligence. The group will be required to submit a final report by December 31.
Other Republican houses, including Representative Adam Kinzinger, are supporting the establishment of the committee.
“This should not be political or violent,” he said Tuesday. “It has to be based on facts and accountability.”
