A key bipartisan group of lawmakers has come out in support of a congressional commission to investigate the January 6 riot at the US Capitol.
The Problem Solvers Caucus, which includes 58 members from both parties, announced its endorsement in a statement on Tuesday.
More than 75% of the lawmakers supported the decision, the group said, stating that an investigation could lead produce recommendations “to ensure an attack like January 6th can never take place again.”
The development comes just hours after House Republican leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, came out against the proposed commission, which would empower a bipartisan panel of lawmakers to investigate the lead-up and response to the events of January 6.
