Republicans in the U.S. Senate blocked an independent investigation into the violent attack on the Capitol. Although there are six Republicans and Democrats voting together, this is not enough to reach the required number of 60 senators.
Senator Chuck Schumer condemned his Republican colleagues. He said after the vote: “Because of the fear of Donald Trump, the horror of that day was covered up. This is a shame for the Republican Party.”
On January 6, the U.S. Capitol was attacked, killing 5 people. President Biden said yesterday: “I can’t imagine anyone opposing the establishment of an investigation committee to investigate one of the biggest attacks on the Capitol since the Civil War.”
Recalling the storm:
The committee to be established will consist of ten experts. The team should be designed in the same way as the committee investigating the September 11, 2001 attack. The top leader of the Republican Party opposed this. The investigation will be biased and unnecessary.
last week The House of Representatives voted The investigation committee is still being established. 35 Republicans subsequently voted for the Democrats.
