Reconnaissance body to investigate storming the Capitol

Republican MPs argued there was already enough investigation into the attack by law enforcement and parliament. You accused the Democrats of not wanting to pursue unbiased information, but rather to pursue a party-political agenda.

In May, the Republicans in the US Senate prevented the establishment of an independent commission of inquiry with the same reasoning – despite a previous bipartisan agreement on such a commission at committee level. The Democrats have a majority in the Senate. However, it is extremely tight, so that the Republicans can block most projects due to procedural rules. The Democrats then decided on their own to install such a body in the House of Representatives, where they have a majority.
