Pelosi: Opposing creating Jan. 6 riots team cowardice

United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi described on Tuesday the opposition of some members of the Republican Party to creating a commission that would investigate the riots that occurred on Capitol Hill on January 6 as "cowardice."

"I'm very pleased that we have a bipartisan bill to come to the floor," Pelosi said. "And [it's] disappointing but not surprising that the cowardice on the part of some on the Republican side not to want to find the truth."

Earlier in the day, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy opposed the legislation due to, among other reasons, "political misdirections that have marred this process."
