Daily DC Insider
On Friday, six Republican senators defied Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and voted in favor of legislation that would establish a 9/11-style commission to investigate the Jan. 6 disturbance at the United States Capitol.
Along with all present Democrats, Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Ben Sasse (R-Neb. ), Bill Cassidy (R-La. ), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), and Susan Collins (R-Maine) voted in favor of establishing the commission.
The six Republicans now face criticism and backlash from within their own party, with many Republicans seeing the attempt at starting a commission as another Democratic attack on Donald Trump.
Mitch McConnell made it clear that the GOP needed to present a united front against the commission bill. It’s a stance that surprised many conservatives, given the rocky relationship McConnell has with Trump.
