Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona is urging Senate Republicans to greenlight a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
A bill to authorize the probe was passed in the House last week, with 35 Republicans joining the majority Democrats, but it needs at least 10 GOP votes to get through the Senate.
Sinema and Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, two moderate Democrats, issued a joint statement Tuesday calling on Republicans to “to work with us to find a path forward.”
“In the hours and days following the attack, Republican and Democratic members of Congress condemned the violence and vowed to hold those responsible accountable so our Democracy will never experience an attack like this again,” the statement says.
