Pelosi Announces Select Committee to Investigate U.S. Capitol Insurrection

HeadlineJun 25, 2021

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will create a select committee to investigate the January 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob incited by the former president and his allies. Pelosi moved to create the panel four weeks after Senate Republicans, led by Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, blocked a bill to create an independent bipartisan commission on the Capitol insurrection.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “Again, January 6th was one of the darkest days in our nation’s history. I’ve said it now three times. It is imperative that we establish the truth of that day and ensure that an attack of that kind cannot happen and that we root out the causes of it all.”
