US House backs 9/11-style probe of Capitol riot

The moderate Senator from ME said she wanted to see minor amendments to the bill that passed the House, with equal numbers of staff from each party working on the commission and for the report to wrap up this year.

Trump was knocking the 35 House Republicans who voted against him on Thursday to create a 9/11-style commission to investigate the riot that sparked after one of the ex-president's rallies on January 6. "The voters understand!" he noted Thursday regarding the 35 House Republicans.

He brought up comments from the president of China in particular as he said, "We are an aspirational country and we've kind of lost that message, it seems to me".

Thirty-five Republicans joined Democrats to support passing the bill to create a 9/11-style commission, including all 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump over his role in fueling the January 6 insurrection. That is my job as his dad and I was not able to do that and I'm sorry."As The Daily Beast reported, Gernon has racked up a string of arrests over the years, serving 68 days in county lockup for a 2018 assault on his father during an argument over a credit-card bill.The Strange New Turn in the Case of 4-Year-Old Cash GernonFollowing his indictment on felony drug possession charges last November, he failed to appear for a March 29, 2021, hearing and thus forfeited a $10,000 bond payment". Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) added.

"Many Republicans were the ones who came forward".

Reps. Cori Bush (D-Mo.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) voted no. Meanwhile, Reps. Jamaal Bowman ( D-N.Y.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) voted present.

The chairwoman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, said the lawmakers "wanted to make sure that there were accountability measures" on the security funds. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said before the House's vote he would oppose the legislation, and Republican senators followed. Ten GOP senators would need to join Democrats to meet the 60-vote threshold needed to advance legislation. Changes could be made to win over their support.

The bill includes money for new fencing - either retractable or "pop in", according to Democrats - that would protect the grounds.

Some Democrats have approached the leadership privately, concerned about security at home while threats against them have increased, those familiar with the discussions.

As Senate Democrats push for a bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6 riot at the Capitol, Sen.

The attack on the U.S. Capitol left many officials on both sides of the political aisle shaken when they faced armed attackers and were forced to barricade the House Chamber doors against insurrectionists. You know, I worked for eight presidents, five of them were Republicans.

The National Guard Association of the United States said in a statement that the Guard should only be used for law enforcement as a "last resort".

Democrats said they, too, are uneasy with numerous military-like measures, but say they have little choice but to protect the building.

Officer Howard Liebengood, 51, who had been on the Capitol Police force since 2005, died by suicide less than a week after the riots.

"We've never had a quick response for us here - you know, we've never had an insurrection, either", Ryan said.

DICKERSON: Unless we solve that problem.
