The Future Of The Commission To Investigate The Insurrection
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has become the latest Republican to push back against a bipartisan plan to create a 9/11-style commission to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
Earlier, McConnell had indicated he was open to the idea, adding that he wanted “to read the fine print.”
Speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday, he said, “After careful consideration, I’ve made a decision to oppose the House Democrats’ slanted and unbalanced proposal for another commission to study the events of Jan. 6.”
We speak to Dina Temple-Raston, NPR’s investigations and breaking news correspondent, about what comes next.
