Mitch McConnell joins top House Republicans in opposing Jan. 6 investigation (includes video story)

A commission to investigate the capitol attack on Jan. 6 has been approved by the U.S. House of Representatives, but has now been moved to a conflicted Senate.

“It will be actionable and effective, culminating in a final report on the facts and causes of Jan. 6,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The bill hit opposition in the House of Representatives at first as Kevin McCarthy, the Republican House minority leader, opposed it.

The bill needs at least 10 Republican backers in the Senate to avoid a filibuster, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is hinting that the House will find a way to start the investigation if it isn’t passed.
