It’s interesting that a few GOP Senators are suddenly supporting the 1/6 commission. It’s as if they’ve finally figured out what I’ve been saying all along, which is that if they don’t pass it, Pelosi will just appoint a 1/6 select committee instead, and it’ll be worst case scenario for the Republicans.
It’s still not clear how they’re going to get from the current 3-4 Republican Senators, to the necessary ten. The odds are strong that the bipartisan commission vote will still fail. Which will be perfect for th Democrats, who will get to make their own 1/6 committee, while hitting the Republicans for having dared to filibuster against something as crucial to national security as investigating the Capitol attack.
