35 House Republicans join Democrats to pass a Jan. 6 Commission — despite Trump's demands
The U.S. House of Representatives Wednesday evening passed bipartisan legislation to form a 9/11-style commission to investigate the January 6 insurrection, including the riots and attempted coup incited by Donald Trump, the president at the time attempting to overturn a free and fair election.
35 Republicans joined all House Democrats. The final vote tally was 252-175.
