Senate Republicans blocked a bipartisan commission to investigate the insurrection. Continuing to ignore facts and avoid pursuing the truth will do nothing to stop this from happening again.

It’s a painful day for American democracy that Republicans blocked the creation of a commission to investigate the Jan. 6th insurrection. I applaud the six Republicans who voted for the commission, but I am saddened that so many are too intimidated by Trump to do the right thing.

Filibustering a bipartisan commission to investigate the deadly violence of January 6th is absolutely shameful. Every single one of us who works in the Capitol — from the Senators to the support staff to the Capitol Police officers — deserved better. We need accountability.
