WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Republicans on Friday blocked creation of a bipartisan panel to study the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol in a show of party loyalty to former President Donald Trump, aiming to shift the political focus away from the violent insurrection by his GOP supporters.

Instead, it’s now likely that questions about who should bear responsibility for the attack will continue to be filtered through a partisan lens rather than addressed by an independent panel modeled after the commission that investigated the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The Senate vote was 54-35 — six short of the 60 needed to take up a House-passed bill that would have formed a 10-member commission evenly split between the two parties. It came a day after emotional appeals from police who fought with the rioters, the family of an officer who died afterward and lawmakers in both parties who fled Capitol chambers as the rioters broke in.

Six Republicans voted with Democrats to move forward. Eleven senators — nine Republicans and two Democrats — missed the vote, an unusually high number of absentees for one of the highest-profile votes of the year. Some said they had scheduling conflicts.

It was the first successful use of a Senate filibuster in the Biden presidency and revived talk of doing way with the time-honored procedure typically used to kill major legislation. It requires 60 votes to move ahead, rather than a simple majority in the 100-member Senate.
>>
Though the Jan. 6 commission bill passed the House earlier this month with the support of almost three dozen Republicans, most GOP senators said they believe the commission would eventually be used against them politically. And Trump, who still has a firm hold on the party, has called it a “Democrat trap.”

Speaking to his Republican colleagues, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said after the vote they were “trying to sweep the horrors of that day under the rug” out of loyalty to Trump.

He left open the possibility of another vote in the future on establishing a bipartisan commission, declaring, “The events of Jan. 6 will be investigated.”

Friday’s vote was emblematic of the profound mistrust between the two parties since the siege, especially among Republicans, as some in the party have downplayed the violence and defended the rioters who supported Trump and his false insistence that the election was stolen from him.

The attack was the worst on the Capitol in 200 years and interrupted the certification of Democrat Joe Biden’s win over Trump. The protesters constructed a mock gallows in front of the Capitol and called for the hanging of Vice President Mike Pence, who was overseeing the certification of the presidential vote. Lawmakers hid on the floor of the House as they tried to break in, and senators evacuated their chamber mere minutes before it was ransacked.

Four of the rioters died that day, and Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick collapsed and died afterward of what authorities said were natural causes. Dozens of police officers were wounded, some with permanent injuries, and two police officers took their own lives in the days after the riots.

While initially saying he was open to the idea of the commission, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell turned firmly against it in recent days. He has said he believes the panel’s investigation would be partisan despite the even split among party members.
>>
McConnell, who once said Trump was responsible for provoking the mob attack on the Capitol, said of Democrats, “They’d like to continue to litigate the former president, into the future.”

Still, six in his caucus defied him, arguing that an independent look is needed. A seventh, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, said he missed the vote because of a family commitment but would have also voted to move forward with the legislation.

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski said Thursday evening that she needs to know more about what happened that day and why.

“Truth is hard stuff, but we’ve got a responsibility to it,” she told reporters. “We just can’t pretend that nothing bad happened, or that people just got too excitable. Something bad happened. And it’s important to lay that out.”

Of her colleagues opposing the commission, Murkowski said some are concerned that “we don’t want to rock the boat.”

GOP opposition to the bipartisan panel has revived Democratic pressure to do away with the filibuster. With the Senate evenly split 50-50, Democrats need support of 10 Republicans to move to the commission bill.

The Republicans’ political arguments over the violent siege — which is still raw for many in the Capitol, almost five months later — have frustrated not only Democrats and some of their Republican colleagues but also those who fought off the rioters. Sicknick’s mother, girlfriend and two police officers who battled the rioters alongside him went office to office and asked Republicans to support the commission.
>>
Michael Fanone, a Metropolitan Police Department officer who responded to the attack, joined Sicknick’s family on Capitol Hill Thursday. In between meetings with Republican senators, he said a commission is “necessary for us to heal as a nation from the trauma that we all experienced that day.” Fanone has described being dragged down the Capitol steps by rioters who shocked him with a stun gun and beat him.

Sandra Garza, the partner of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who collapsed and died after battling the rioters, said of the Republican senators, “You know they are here today and with their families and comfortable because of the actions of law enforcement that day.”

Video of the rioting shows two men spraying Sicknick and another officer with a chemical, but the Washington medical examiner said he suffered a stroke and died from natural causes.

Many Democrats are warning that if Republicans are willing to use the filibuster to stop an arguably popular measure, it shows the limits of trying to broker compromises, particularly on bills related to election reforms or other aspects of the Democrats’ agenda.

For now, though, Democrats don’t have the votes to change the rule. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, both moderate Democrats, have said they want to preserve the filibuster.

Biden, asked about the commission at a stop in Cleveland, said Thursday, “I can’t imagine anyone voting against” it.

Goddamned blue dogs ruin everything. This is the same thing that happened 10 years ago.

>>857298
Dems will never do away with the filibuster because it's too convenient of an excuse to not actually do anything
>>
>>857324
Problem is the moment Republicans regain power they're going to not only axe it, but then run a Constitutional Convention to gut the constitution and turn the US into a dictatorship.

Feels like Manchin and Sinema are playing both sides and ready to betray the democrats for the Republicans when that happens. Of course they'll just immediately get primaried and voted out since they aren't fringe right wing enough.

So now after Pelosi sets up the Democrat controlled commission the Republicans can pretend it's a partisan witch hunt. Ironically, their base of cult zombies will slurp it up although no one else will. So it's not 4D chess, it's more like incompetent checker play that loses to a kindergartener.

At the time, they assumed Trump was just a useful idiot that would be a vessel for their will.
By the time they realized just how tight a grip he had on the party they were out of total power. And now they're (mostly) out of power when he reveals himself to be an existential threat to the country.

>>857487
They did, but to force a constitutional convention you need the state legislators in 34 states to call for it. Republicans had control of 33 states when Trump took power in 2016. And their power didn't slip because of the extreme gerrymandering and voter suppression they pushed. And given they controlled the census,they can just do even more gerrymandering to ensure they reach the 34 state threshold.

it literally is a witch hunt.
the worst thing that came out of the speakers on Jan. 6 was Rudy calling for a metaphorical "trial by combat". smoothbrains will say it was a call to violence, anyone else will understand he was being metaphorical (battle in the courts).
every elected official involved in that day is innocent, and democrats want to drag them in front of a CNN-ready commission just to make them look bad.
does anyone ACTUALLY think a commission investigation would be over by Dec 31? of course not. it's just a drum to bang in the run up to the midterms, something they sorely need now that the economy is sputtering to a halt.
>>
>>857441
There are at least 30 members of Congress, both Representatives and Senators, who helped plan the insurrection, along with dozens of their staff. They violated their Oaths of Office and every single one of their security clearances to provide inside information and otherwise collaborated with the insurrectionists.

A J6 Insurrection Commission would reveal these people, and the scope of their treason against the country. Given the support on the repugniQon side to cover it up, 30 members seems like a very small number who betrayed their country. It's looking like about 150 in the House and at least 30 in the Senate. Numerous staff for each of the people would also be involved, so that could easily be another 200 or even 500 people.

Keep in mind, insurrection against the United States government can be punishable by death. In the past, we have executed quite a number of people for this crime. Collaborating with insurrectionists carries the same penalty as insurrection.

There were a lot of inside actors in the Capitol on 06 Jan. They have all the reasons imaginable to stop any and all investigations.

the fact that the Democrat-media cabal had declared Joe Biden the winner of the election over the objection of several state legislative bodies and questionable election practices.
the majority of them were there to peacefully have their voices heard. a mix of fringe right wing and left wing provocateurs took the opportunity to cause trouble, but their minds were made up well before they showed up in washington, so the speakers had no impact on their decision making.

The Republican charged with negotiating the Republican position on this commission got literally everything he wanted, to the point where he flat out said the legislation looked like what the House Republicans wanted, and calling out McCarthy for voting against it anyway.
If anything, the Democrats didn't show enough spine to the Republicans, that's where the true partisanship lay. And now they'll see that, when Pelosi stands up the special House investigation and tells her Republican colleagues to go fuck themselves in its establishment.

It was a really shitty plan that any sane president would reject. And it doesn't change the fact that 9/11 happened under the Republican's watch and they let the leaders get away so they could commit various war crimes in the middle east.

Slavery was one of the major pillars in the foundation of slavery. It was even including in the Constitution under the 3/5th's compromise.

So you think there were secret Antifa plants at the capitol, instigating the violence? Why don't you support an investigation commission then, since we currently have literally no evidence that that's true? This would be the way to prove that there really was Antifa at the capitol!
>>
>>857532
>how has the two-party system ever worked
It's pretty rare in US history for the parties to be roughly evenly divided in terms of political power like they are now. Usually you have decades-long stretches where either the Republicans or Democrats are the clear dominant party, like 1932-1968 was for the Democrats. Under such a system the minority party is incentivized to work as much as they can with the majority if they want to get anything done.

However since the 90s the two parties have been more or less evenly matched - either one has the potential to win the Presidency, House, or Senate in any given election. This means there's no real reason to try to compromise when you can just win the next election and get exactly what you want instead - in fact compromising will often actually hurt you because the majority party will generally get the credit for any bill passed with bipartisan support but also take the blame if the government is paralyzed and unable to act. McConnel realized this when he became majority leader which is why usage of the filibuster drastically increased during Obama's presidency - the filibuster was used more times during Obama's tenure than during the entirety of the 20th century combined. Democrats of course started following the same playbook when they became the minority party in 2016.

>>857542
It has absolute nothing to do with the bipartisanship of the legislation. Minority parties will literally filibuster bills that they then vote for just for the sake of delaying the government function. The goal of filibusters isn't to force compromise with the majority party, it's to make their governance look incompetent so you can run attack ads and then hopefully win the next election.

>The common sense bills usually pass stuff like this doesn't
Investigating an attack on our nation's capitol is as common sense as it gets.

Yet the 2 yo toddler Trump and his sycophant henchmen, banging their fists and stamping their feet producing a discordant cacophony that led to his base attempting a coup to overthrow Democracy and crown Trump King.

Lets contrast that with the 2000 election where Al Gore, who had a legitimate bitch finally losing 266-271 electoral votes, yet acted in the manner of an honorable man, unlike Trump.
>The election was close, finally coming down to FL, where Bush's brother, Jeb, was Governor.
>Gore had appeared to win FL by 500+ votes
>Jeb stepped in and threw out those ballots so that his brother George would win.
>Gore challenged it to the Supreme Court, but when they ruled against him, he acted like a man who put America, Democracy and the Constitution above himself and accepted the ruling.
It's notable that as VP, Gore sat in the exact same position as Pence (who Trump claimed was a traitor and incited his mob to attempt to hang) and graciously accepted the electoral votes from every State including FL.

Now I ask any of you, in all seriousness, how can you support what is obviously a solipsistic narcissist with a toddlers emotional makeup who was literally btfo in an electoral landslide who is still throwing temper tantrums when you contrast it with the behavior of Gore?

What rally? Just because Trump was an egoist who wanted to hold a rally everywhere he went doesn't mean Biden visiting Louisiana is suddenly a rally too.

Decades of these semantics being pushed by leftist institutions have weathered away the moral fabric of society, but still other than Lindsey Graham there isn't a single person to point toward as an actual example to support this line of thought. Using them in an argument is literally just as pitiful and worthless as a one word "dilate" response or anything similar. It's also much more direct, genuine, and masculine to simply use the word you want to say but are too afraid, which would render the need for such verbose and inexplicit insults unnecessary.
Faggot.

Except studies where they have attached electronic monitoring devices to self proclaimed heterosexual mens' penises and played explicit gay sexual videos show a statistically significant increase in arousal for virulently homophobic males compared to males who either supported gays or were indifferent to them.

In short, virulently anti-lgbt Republicans are quite likely to be as gay as Lisping Lindsay Graham who when asked why he never dated women or had been married, he stated, "I've been too busy dedicating my life to serving the American people" ;^)

Actually it makes sense that extreme homophobes/transphobes would likely be gay. Think about it. A heterosexual should celebrate every male that was homosexual/transsexual and the more the merrier because it diminishes the number of males in the highly competitive pool of those trying to "dip their wick" in the female "heavenly cavern of delight." So when you consider it rationally, GOP homophobes are almost certainly in the same "campy" camp as Lisping Lady Lindsay Graham.

>Investigating an attack on our nation's capitol is as common sense as it gets.
No because it is an open and shut case people trespassed and get arrested. People protest outside all okay. There is not some greater conspiracy you buffoon
>>
>>859241
people dont just storm a capitol and shout about hanging politicians for no reason. something lead to it, and it was likely stoked by several individuals or groups. just think, it could even be the dreaded antifas like so many republicans have claimed. strange they wouldnt want to investigate antifa
>>
>>861903
The permanent government blames it on invisible foreign agents and disloyal media workers. The typical fascist excuses for an increasing loss of control.

I can't say I'm overly unhappy about it. The longer the corporatist regime keeps oppressing and deriding the impoverished workers and farmers, the stronger will their reaction be. Trump was just the beginning. A harmless old grandpa with little ambition and even less courage. And yet he could give the impoverished masses hope, could show them a glimpse of what could be.Imagine a true leader, a true man of the people, in his stead. Draining the swamp with fire and fury, hanging the Bezos and Zuckerbergs on their own billboards. With the frenetic support of 150 million American workers and farmers.

>people dont just storm a capitol and shout about hanging politicians for no reason. something lead to it
Correct. And that something was Trump with the emotional makeup of a toddler who could not accept the fact he got legitimately btfo, and his enablers.

Look, no one complained (after a while people were laughing about it, though) when he went through the process of filing 60+ lawsuits, multiple recounts and independent audits during the time period between the election and required date mandated by the Constitution for the electoral votes to be certified by the states and accepted by the US Congress. (Not even bringing up his conspiracy to committ election fraud when he attempted to extort Raffensperger to manufacture the 11,000+ votes he needed to win GA). After all of those legal remedies were exhausted, however, he and his enablers took it to the brink to attempt to prevent those legally certified electoral votes (remember - court challenged, audited, reaudited, counted, recounted multiple times, certified by the states) and fired up a mob to do just that violently with the kind of rhetoric he and his enablers knew would work. And unbelievably, he and his minions ARE STILL PROMOTING THE BIG LIE 7 MONTHS AFTER THE ELECTION, 4 MONTHS AFTER THE INAUGURATION!

Contrast that "thing" you worship with Al Gore in 2000. Which one believes in America and which one believes only in himself?

>strange they wouldnt want to investigate antifa
Why is that strange? What reason would there be to investigate something that has nothing to do with the January 6th and the Republican politicians who caused it?
>>
If the Republicans actually cared they would propose a separate commission to investigate political violence in America that would, presumably, cover antifa as well, white nationalists, et cetera.

Attempting to shove it into the January 6 investigation is dumb as shit.
>>
>>861950
The reason they did that was so they could spend their time distracting from the Jan 6 coup so their propaganda outlets would have other things to report when the commission was in session. That's why they had to kill the commission after democrats refused to concede on that even after surrendering on all the other demands by Republicans.
>>
>>861950
We now found out that Republicans would have put Gym Jordon and Greene on the committee.
This is like putting members of Al Qaeda on the 9/11 commission.

despite what you say being true, thats not a way to find common ground for support of an investigation

lol why do y'all need a fucking commission the whole thing was televised we all saw what happened xD
>>
The (unnecessarily bipartisan) commission was the last chance to save the Bush wing of the Republican party as the 'true' representatives of the American right wing. Deal: Shove the Trump wing/far right under the bus in court and we will pretend you're legitimate and innocent. A generous offer, but a typically out of touch one by the blue dogs Biden represented for decades.

McConnell and Co believe Dems will defend the honor of the Republican party elite anyway so there is nothing in it for him or his party; only downside.

However, what no one wants to face is that the Democratic party is now the home of the right wing of American politics and the resurrected left will burst out of its chest sometime in the next two, four, or six years as a new and independent party in fact if not in name. This can only be obviated by accomplishing policy goals as Bismarck did to reduce tension.

Biden and the corporate Dems will never do anything so sensible and backed up by historical precedent. So they are now to be considered the right wing.

Tyranny of the permanent minority. It's what Republicans are to turn this country into.

Better the minority gets a voice in politics than they get trampled by the uncaring majority. At least that is what civil rights used to be about.

You retards really do have your own version of reality.

This country is irreparably fucked. Two retarded fake political parties fighting nonstop over trivial bull crap while both parties are actively devouring all of humanity and completely erasing the middle class. Fuck. This. Country.

There's a difference between having a voice and being able to permanently obstruct any and all legislation.
>>
>>866896
No, that's exactly what "having a voice in politics" means.
>>
>>866897
Wrong, a functional democracy gives the minority input in forming legislation so that it helps the most people. Republicans have opted to obstruct everything and only negotiate in bad faith.

I despise today's Rethuglicans and wish the Left would grow some ovaries. All politicians are in it for their corporations and special interest groups. Mail in ballots are needed in every state!!

Democracy is garbage.
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."
