GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy Opposes Bipartisan Insurrection Inquiry as House Votes on Commission

HeadlineMay 19, 2021

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says he will oppose the bipartisan deal to form a 9/11-style commission to investigate the deadly January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. McCarthy suggested a congressional inquiry was not needed, and said he would not support it since it will not examine “political violence” on the left — which is unrelated to the insurrection. The Biden administration has voiced support for the bipartisan commission.
