House approves select panel to probe Jan. 6 attack, 2 Republicans vote with Dems

Wednesday, the House voted to create a select committee dedicated to investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Only 2 Republicans opted to vote alongside Democrats – Reps. Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney.

Other than those 2, lawmakers voted alongside party lines for a 222-190 vote.
