H.R.3233 - National Commission to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol Complex ActNational Commission to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol Complex Act. This bill establishes in the legislative branch the National Commission to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol Complex.
The National Commission to Investigate the January 6 Attack on the United States Capitol Complex, known colloquially as the January 6 commission, was a proposed commission that would have investigated the 2021 United States Capitol attack. It was proposed on February 15 by Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, who announced that she planned to create a "9/11-type commission". The proposal was negotiated by Republican John Katko, and would have consisted of an equal number of Democrats and Republicans. A bill forming the commission passed the House of Representatives on May 19, with all Democrats and 35 Republicans voting in support of it. However, it was blocked by Senate Republicans on May 28, with 54 Senators voting in favor and 35 voting against, failing to clear the 60 votes needed to break a filibuster.
Judge: ‘More likely than not’ that Trump ‘corruptly attempted’ to block Congress from counting votes on January 6By Katelyn Polantz, CNN Reporter, Crime and Justice, Reporter, Crime and JusticeCNN — A federal judge said Monday that former President Donald Trump and right-wing attorney John Eastman may have been planning a crime as they sought to disrupt the January 6 congressional certification of the presidential election. “Based on the evidence, the Court finds it more likely than not that President Trump corruptly attempted to obstruct the Joint Session of Congress on January 6, 2021,” Judge David Carter wrote Monday. Carter, a federal judge in California, ordered Eastman to turn over 101 emails from around January 6, 2021, that he has tried to keep secret from the House select committee investigating the US Capitol attack.
On January 6, 2021, while Congress was counting the Electoral College votes from the 2020 election, thousands of violent insurrectionists breached the barriers surrounding the US Capitol, broke into the very seat of our democracy, and disrupted the peaceful transfer of power. Protect Democracy believes a thorough and transparent effort by the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol is absolutely necessary to determine what led to the attack, who bears responsibility, and how to prevent its recurrence. January 6 was the culmination of various troubling factors undermining our democracy—from white supremacists violent extremism to coordinated election subversion—and a comprehensive fact-finding and truth-telling exercise is a critical prerequisite to addressing them. That is why, well before the announcement of the Select Committee, we led a cross-partisan coalition of advocacy organizations calling for Congress to launch an official investigation into the events of January 6, 2021, and organized a letter from 140 former senior national security leaders from both parties who served in presidential administrations and in Congress urging an independent January 6th Commission.
A complete timeline of the events at the January 6th riot. The attack on the Capitol on Jan 6 was an organized, coordinated attempt to flood the building with people and shut down the process of certifying the electoral votes. Planning for the Capitol riots began long before January 6th, 2021. President Donald Trump’s Stop the Steal Rally was seeded with members of organized extremist groups (e.g. Proud Boys, Three Percenters, Oath Keepers, “Groypers” from America First) who intentionally planned to transform a peaceful rally into chaos. These groups attempted to manipulate Trump supporters into joining them in attacking the Capitol through disinformation ahead of January 6th. Some people came to the Stop the Steal Rally prepared for violence, wearing helmets, tactical vests, and radios.
Kat Lonsdorf, Courtney Dorning, Amy Isackson, Mary Louise Kelly, Ailsa ChangJanuary 6, 2021, was a Wednesday. A joint session of Congress was set to convene in the U.S. Capitol to certify Joe Biden's electoral vote win. Meanwhile, thousands of Donald Trump supporters gathered near the White House to hear him speak at noon ET. Tensions were high on Capitol Hill. Protesters swarmed lawmakers outside. Sen. Todd Young, R-Ind., was exasperated as protesters surrounded him on the steps of the Russell Senate Office Building at around 11:30 a.m. "When it comes to the law, our opinions don't matter. The law matters. ... I value your opinion. ... I share your conviction that President [Donald] Trump should remain president. I share that conviction. But the law matters. I took an oath. I took an oath under God. Under God. Do we still take that seriously in this country?" he said, emphatically waving his arms in the air. As we approach the one-year anniversary of Jan. 6, we revisit the events of that day — what happened when. Here's how it unfolded.
Nothing to see here, just an attempted coup by the president and half of all Republicans in the House.By Bess LevinMore than four weeks after losing the 2020 election, Donald Trump, the most pathetic president in modern history, is still insisting the whole thing was stolen from him and that he will serve a second term, despite being laughed out of court more than 50 times in one month. Obviously, the odds of him actually remaining in the White House past January 20, 2021 are somewhere around those of the public finding out he only eats food that he’s foraged himself, or that he’s fluent in Mandarin and has been keeping it from everyone this entire time. Ultimately, he will go away, even if the Secret Service has to drag him from the Oval Office kicking and screaming, his nails dragging along the carpet, leaving orange bronzer streaks from the Resolute Desk to the door. So we don’t actually have to worry about him successfully overthrowing the results of the election, but what we should probably be concerned with are the dozens of Republicans happily, publicly trying to help him execute his coup.
By Darragh RocheRepublican members of Congress appear to have conspired with former President Donald Trump 's administration in efforts to prevent the certification of President Joe Biden 's 2020 election victory, according to text messages revealed by the House Select Committee investigating January 6. The select committee released texts from as-yet unnamed lawmakers to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Monday before the panel voted unanimously to recommend contempt charges against him. Those messages appear to show the lawmakers supporting a plan to object to the certification of Electoral College votes on January 6 where then Vice President Mike Pence would have played a key role.
Some the people who attacked our capitol were police officers and people from the armed forces. White supremacists are infiltrating our law enforcement agencies, our armed forces and public office to protect and, promote the white supremacist agenda.
