Lawmakers form a bi-partisan, 9/11 style panel to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol

House lawmakers have reached a deal to form ‘a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of then President Trump and to recommend changes to further protect the complex.’ The panel will consist of “10 bipartisan members: five of them, including the chair, would be appointed by the House speaker and the Senate majority leader; the other five, including the vice chair, would be appointed by the minority Leaders of the House and Senate. The panel would, among other things, study the “facts and circumstances of the January 6th attack on the Capitol as well as the influencing factors that may have provoked the attack on our democracy.”

The commission would be have the power to issue subpoenas to carry out its investigation, but these would require “agreement between the Chair and the Vice Chair or a vote by a majority of Commission members.” Under the deal, the panel will be required to issues a final report along with recommendations by Dec. 31.”
