The House voted yesterday to set up an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6 riot. And even though Republican leadership was against it, 35 Republicans voted for the legislation. That chunk of GOP vote, while comparatively small, represents a revolt of sorts against their leader, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who pushed strongly for the bill’s defeat. It also sets up a tougher battle in the evenly divided Senate, where Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has also voiced his opposition. A Republican vote against the commission is generally seen as an indication of loyalty to former President Trump, or at least the political landscape he shaped. A US Capitol Police officer anonymously sent a letter excoriating Republicans who voted against the commission, expressing "profound disappointment.”
