DNC Statement on Senate Republicans Covering for Trump on January 6

DNC Spokesperson Adonna Biel released the following statement after Senate Republicans used their first filibuster to block a bipartisan commission to investigate January 6:

“Instead of getting to the bottom of the violence that happened on January 6 to ensure it never happens again, and getting justice for the lives lost, Republicans would rather play politics and surrender to Donald Trump. Republicans have made it resoundingly clear that they have no interest in the truth or standing up to protect our democracy. They only care about their own political interests and clinging on to power no matter the cost.”
