– I urge all Republicans and Democrats to lay down their swords at least once and support this legislation. It’s about the facts. This is not party policy, he appealed to Katko before the vote.

He presented the proposed panel as a fair and necessary step in an effort to explain the events, how they occurred, and what security improvements Capital needed to prevent future attacks.

“He knew how many heads would have hung from the gallows that the crowd had kept outside the building, if not for the police protest in the Capitol,” said Fred Upton, one of the Republican voters. His party counterpart, Peter Meizer, spoke of attempts to whitewash and differentiate the shameful events of the day in order to avoid responsibility.

The bill will now go to the Senate, which has 50 Democrats and 50 Republicans, and Vice President Kamala Harris could benefit if the vote is balanced. According to viewers, the chances of its approval are slim. Forcing a law to pass would require the support of at least 10 Republicans to break the parliamentary barrier.
