Nancy Pelosi Plans ‘Independent 9/11-Type Commission’ to Investigate Capitol Riot

Trump Supporters Pelosi Announces '9/11-Type Commission' To Investigate Capitol Insurrection

The bipartisan 9/11 Commission was a massive two-year undertaking that resulted in an authoritative accounting of the terrorist attack that left thousands dead in NY and Washington, D.C. The panel held a dozen public hearings and published a 561-page report that became the first comprehensive guide to the 2001 attack, its causes and recommendations for the future.

The objective of this new unit will be to investigate the reaction of the Capitol Police, who were overwhelmed by the mob in the attack, as well as the response, "Preparation and Feedback" From other law enforcement agencies at the federal, state and local levels "Interference in the peaceful transfer of power". "It will look different", she said.

"It is clear from his findings and from the impeachment trial that we must get to the truth of how this happened", Pelosi said.

Five people died amid the riot, including a Capitol Police officer. The troops are expected to remain through mid-March. The Senate, in an earlier vote, had deemed the trial constitutional.

"President Trump is still liable for everything he did while he was in office", McConnell added.

She added: "But, listen, we didn't need more witnesses". "History will remember that statement of speaking out of two sides of his mouth", she said.

According to Fox News, the letter references a security decision made on January 4 that the National Guard should not be called in pre-emptively because of concerns about the "optics" of such a thing. "We look forward to these Ranking Members asking these same questions of former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell".

House impeachment manager Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Pa.), who also spoke on "This Week", alluded to the partisanship of Saturday's vote, saying a commission could avoid political infighting.

In a letter to lawmakers, Pelosi, D-Calif., said that an assessment of Congressional security by retired Army Lt. Gen.
