Daily DC Insider
Senate Republicans pulled out their first filibuster since President Joe Biden took office, forcing a multi-hour, midnight session debating the establishment of a January 6th commission.
The GOP killed the bill, much to the chagrin of Chuck Schumer and his fellow Democrats.
“If our Republican friends vote against this, I would ask them, ‘what are you afraid of? The truth?’,” warned Schumer late last week.
The bill was defeated 54 to 35, receiving just six Republican votes instead of the ten required to pass the Senate’s 60-vote threshold to open debate.
The bill would have created a commission to investigate the January 6th Capitol riot, but many opponents labeled the effort a waste of time and government resources.
Some Republicans, however, voiced support for the investigation, arguing Congress needed to make sure nothing like the riot ever happens again at the Capitol.
But with the bill now defeated, some political pundits believe the GOP handed Democrats ammunition to kill the Senate filibuster.
Though Republicans were successful in stopping the commission bill, Democrats claim an investigation will still happen even without Republican support.

“Working with Jake is awesome. He brings the right amount of energy and determination to get the job done,” said Wilson. “He’s very motivated, and he’s also made a difference in my life,” says Pratt’s work partner Richard Wilson.
Pratt learned in April that he had been hired as a full-time employee at UPS. His team donated a contribution to the non-profit Down Syndrome of Alabama to commemorate the new job.
