US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday announced the creation of a select committee to investigate the January 6 unrest at the Capitol
Pelosi said the committee will investigate the cause of the unrest and will make recommendations to prevent similar events from happening.
Last month, US Senate Republicans blocked a bipartisan bill to establish an independent commission to investigate the events at the Capitol.
On January 6, a group of Trump supporters entered the US Capitol building to protest lawmakers legalizing the 2020 election results in several US states that then US President Donald Trump claimed were illegal. Trump has claimed that victory was stolen from him via massive voter and election fraud and lawmakers from several US states should not certify the election results.
