The House recently voted 252-175 in favor of legislation that would establish a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan 6th Capitol riot. Ultimately 35 House Republicans joined Democrats in favor of the bill in its current form. Now the bill will head to the Senate where it faces an uncertain future. A number of Republican lawmakers have already voiced their opposition to the bill over the fact it does not investigate any of the political violence that plagued American cities last summer. Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer says the bill is a priority and will likely be voted on in the coming weeks but it’s not clear if Democrats will convince enough Republicans to join them.
