9/11 Style Commission To Look Into Jan. 6 Riot

Several lawmakers have indicated in separate television appearances that they support the idea of establishing a 9/11-style commission to probe the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.

One of these lawmakers, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), said on Sunday that he believes such a commission is necessary in order to unearth “all the evidence” surrounding the incident.

“I do think that we need to spend months and months unearthing all the evidence that can possibly be gotten to through a 9/11-style commission,” Coons told ABC’s “This Week.”

Similarly, his Democratic colleagues in the House, Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-Pa.) shared a similar view when appearing on ABC News’ “This Week.”

“Of course, there must be a full commission and impartial commission, not guided by politics, but filled with people who would stand up to the courage of their conviction,” Dean said.

Members on the other side of the aisle have also expressed similar support for such a commission. Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) also appeared on ABC News on Sunday, where he said “a complete investigation about what happened on Jan. 6” is necessary.
