(RepublicanDaily.org) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is still determined to squeeze all the political points she can out of what happened on Capitol Hill on January 6. Despite the fact most lawmakers in Washington, DC, have shifted their focus toward the many other, more serious issues currently threatening the United States, Pelosi is still out for blood over the incident that took place months ago.
On Thursday, June 24, the Speaker announced the creation of a select committee to investigate the incident. Pelosi said the lawmakers will investigate “the causes” of the January 6 incident and make recommendations on what to do to prevent future events. She did not reveal what the committee would look like but said she would have more answers about that later.
JUST IN: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just informed colleagues she will formally announce plans to launch a select House committee to investigate the 1/6 Capitol insurrection today. As @mkraju reported Pelosi hinted earlier this week that this was coming. https://t.co/oykLR9q9s2

The Democratically-controlled Congress recently tried to pass a 9/11-style committee, but it failed to overcome a Republican filibuster in the Senate. The GOP contends there are already enough investigations into that day. In fact, earlier this month, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and the Rules and Administration Committee released its own report on the incident, including recommendations on what to do moving forward. So, why does Pelosi need her own committee when it is clear the incident has already been investigated?
