President of the United States House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, announced today that Congress will create an independent commission, similar to the one created for 9/11, to investigate the January invasion of the Capitol.

According to Pelosi, this commission will “investigate and report the facts and causes related to the January 6, 2021 domestic terrorism attack against the State Capitol and in relation to the interference in the peaceful transition of power”.

The House of Representatives will also deliberate on increasing security investment in the Capitol, announced the Representative of the ‘lower’ chamber of the US Congress.

The creation of an independent commission similar to the one created after the September 11, 2001 attack is becoming relatively consensual between Democrats and Republicans, after the acquittal of former President of the United States, Republican Donald Trump, in the second process dismissal.

The historic process – since an American head of state was impeached for the first time – ended with Trump’s acquittal on Saturday, after the hurried conclusion of the defense and prosecution arguments.

The prosecution against Donald Trump had announced that he was going to call several witnesses to prove that the former President was the moral author of the insurrection attempt that occurred on the day that Congressmen validated Democrat Joe Biden’s victory in the November 3 presidential election.

This decision would drag the process for several days, but after an agreement with the defense, both factions in the impeachment presented the final arguments on Saturday.

The final verdict was 57-43, below the two-thirds needed for the Senate to validate Trump’s dismissal.

Shortly before the Capitol invasion, Trump spoke in Washington to a crowd that supported the former President. During the speech, the former head of state urged the crowd to “fight” for the country and “march” towards the Capitol.

Trump’s speech, as well as the unfounded accusations of the Republican’s candidacy for electoral fraud – even before the first American media outlined the first projections of Biden’s victory – are pointed out by Democrats and political analysts like the ‘ catalysts’ of this insurrection attempt.

Several investigations into the incident are already planned and hearings are scheduled this month for the Senate Rules Committee.

In fact, even more inquiries could be made, according to statements made on Sunday by several lawmakers in the commentary spaces in various media outlets in the United States.
