Jan. 6 Commission Fails in Senate Following GOP Opposition
Will check that dinner time forecast in two minutes. This just into the WBC news from again this hour. Republicans in the Senate have just blocked a bill that would have created a 9 11 style commission to study the January Capitol attack. The motion fails on the Senate floor minutes ago. Now the final tally was 54 votes in favor. But this legislation would have needed 60 votes to pass to avoid a filibuster. This is the first successful filibuster in the U. S Senate this year, but again D away dead on arrival. Republicans. Not there. Ah, handful did support this bill.
