Pelosi Announces
a House Select Committee , Will Investigate US Capitol Breach.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced
the select committee one month after the
U.S. Senate failed to pass legislation...
... that would have created a 9/11-type
commission to investigate
the Jan. 6 insurrection.
This morning, with great solemnity and sadness, I’m announcing that the House will be establishing a select committee on the Jan. 6 insurrection, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, (CA-D),
via 'The Washington Post'.
The House select committee will have
similar subpoena powers as the
commission would have had, .
and it will also publish a report on its findings.
The Senate-formed commission
would have been comprised
of a bipartisan group. .
The House select committee will likely be
at least perceived as partisan.
A Republican-led House select committee
was formed in 2012 to investigate
American deaths in Benghazi, Libya. .
House Minority Leader
Kevin McCarthy boasted
during the 2016 election that
the Benghazi investigation helped to
defeat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
McCarthy voiced his opposition to the
Jan. 6 bipartisan Senate commission.
The Jan. 6 insurrection led to the
deaths of five people... .
... and the physical breach of the
U.S. Capitol by more than 800 supporters
of former President Donald Trump
