U.S. lawmakers will set up an independent commission of inquiry to review the ‘facts and reasons’ behind the January 6 attack on Congress.
That’s what the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, said Monday.
She writes in a letter to other members of Congress that the commission should be in the style of the one that investigated the attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001.
According to Pelosi, the commission must also look at ‘facts and reasons related to the preparedness and action of the police in Congress and other federal, state and local police’.
The then president, Donald Trump, had on Twitter urged his supporters to come to the demonstration in Washington DC on January 6th.
After Trump gave a speech, his supporters marched against the Congress building, where they penetrated, for many, in an attempt to interrupt Congress in the formal approval of Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election.
Five people died during the riots, including a police officer.
Trump was put on trial for his role in the riots. He was acquitted by a vote in the Senate on Saturday night Danish time.
