The Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Monday that she intends to establish an “outside, independent 9/11-type Commission” to investigate the riot on Capitol Hill last month.
In her weekly letter to Congress, Speaker Pelosi wrote that the commission will “investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021, domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex…and relating to the interferences with the peaceful transfer of power.”
She also wrote that, “It is clear from his findings [General Honore’s] that we must get to the truth of how this happened.”
Over the weekend, the U.S. Senate voted to acquit former President Donald Trump 57-43, with seven Republican senators voting with Democrats in favor of conviction.
Five people died in the siege on Capitol Hill last month.
