The house voted to create a commission to investigate the insurrection at the capitol on january. Sixth the vote. Two hundred and fifty to one seventy five with just thirty. Five republicans voting in favour. This is pretty remarkable moment on january six of course the leader of the republican party. Donald trump fomented a violent insurrection. Hundreds and hundreds of rioters march for rally near the white house to the united states capitol at trump's explicit invitation where they descended on the building attacking officers and sending members of congress. Republican and democrat cowering barricading themselves in their own chambers offices fearing for their laws. The crowd infamously erected gallows just outside the capitol building wall group that have forced their way inside it. Hang mike pence. Hang mike pence advice. President refused to overturn the election. In the way that donald trump wanted and the purpose of all of it was to steal the election to stop the peaceful transfer of power to keep donald trump in the white house. Now it has been more than four months since that day. There is still so much we do not know about what happened on january six. I mean look at this just today the f. b. i.
