The House has passed a bill that establishes a Select Committee to investigate the January 6th Capitol attack. The legislation passed 222 to 190. Ousted GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney and Representative Adam Kinzinger were the only Republicans who voted in favor.

The measure establishes a 13-person commission appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, including five members to be selected “after consultation with” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. This comes one month after Senate Republicans blocked an effort to create an independent, bipartisan panel.
