Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is publicly supporting a 9/11-style commission to inspect the January insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. It comes after the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of the bipartisan commission. The U.S. Senate is now deliberating the initiative, which is receiving opposition from Sen. Mitch McConnell.
“We implore our Senate Republican colleagues to work with us to find a path forward on a commission to examine the events of January 6,” Sinema said Tuesday in a joint statement with West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin.
A spokesperson for Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly told the Republic he also supports the commission’s establishment.
