(TargetLiberty.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been at the forefront of the attempts to denounce and impeach Trump since the January 6 unrest on Capitol Hill. Now that her second attempt to impeach Donald Trump has ended in failure, she’s announced a “9/11-type commission” to investigate the protests.

Pelosi issued a statement on February 15 saying that it was important for lawmakers and investigators to “get to the truth” about how the violence happened. According to her, the investigation will delve into the events of January 6, including the “facts and causes” of the incident and response of law enforcement.
The Capitol riot was a shocking episode in American politics, resulting in several investigations already in the pipeline. The Senate has hearings planned for late February, and Pelosi herself has already asked a retired general to review the Capitol’s security arrangements. However, she’s now decided that what the nation really needs is a high-profile commission – and she announced it barely a day after the Senate voted against convicting the former president.
