House Democrats are planning to convene a select committee to investigate the January 6 insurrection, after Senate Republicans succeeded in stonewalling a bill that would have created a bipartisan commission to probe the Capitol assault. Just six Senate Republicans joined Democrats Friday in a vote to break a Republican-led filibuster. That prompted some Senate Democrats to renew their calls to eliminate the filibuster. But other Democrats — including Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema — remain opposed, while Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has not endorsed eliminating the filibuster.
