Yes, 35 House Republicans voted to create a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. And yes, some GOP senators also support the proposal. But the two top Republican leaders — Kevin McCarthy in the House and Mitch McConnell in the Senate — are solidly opposed. They have their reasons. Like: What about the “sprawling” Capitol riot investigation in the Justice Department, “one of the largest in American history”? That’s not nothing. And what about the investigation you probably haven’t heard of in the Senate? And what about the second Trump impeachment? Remember that? There are multiple Capitol riot investigations going on as we speak. And finally, if Democrats want another, why don’t they just do it themselves? Nothing is stopping them from starting right now. A no chit-chat discussion.
