Senator Mitt Romney of Utah became the first GOP Senator Monday to say he would support a bill passed in the Democrat party controlled House to create a commission to investigate the January 6th Capitol riot.
The move would require 60 votes (10 Republicans) to overcome a filibuster.
Romney told reporters, “I would support the bill.”
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he will “very soon” bring the House bill up for a vote.
Republican Senator Susan Collins on Maine has started discussions with Democrats about potential amendments to the House bill.
