Pelosi says “next step” is 9-11 style commission to investigate Capitol riot

Monday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for a 9/11-style commission to investigate U.S. Capitol riot that took place January 6th as the “next step” after the Senate impeachment trial ended with Trump being acquitted.

Pelosi said in a letter an investigation was needed in order to prevent a similar incident from happening again and “we must get to the truth of how this happened.”

She added “to protect our security, our security, our security, our next step will be to establish an outside, independent 9/11-type Commission.”

This commission would “investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021 domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex'” as well as “‘relating to the interference with the peaceful transfer of power, including facts and causes relating to the preparedness and response of the United States Capitol Police and other Federal, State, and local law enforcement in the National Capitol Region.”
