House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has said that the US congress will establish a "9-11 style" independent commission to probe the insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6.

In her letter to Democratic colleagues on Mondy, Pelosi said that the commission will investigate and report the facts and causes of the Riots. She said House will also put forth supplemental spending to boost the security at the Capitol.

There has been growing support for an independent commission to examine the deadly insurrection on January 6, between the Democrats.

Speaker Pelosi said, "As we prepare for the commission, it is also clear from General Honor's interim reporting that we must put forth a supplemental appropriation to provide for the safety of Members and the security of the Capitol."

There have been supports for the independent commission among the democrats. Republican Senator Bill Cassidy says, Trump has to be held accountable, as it will build the base for this to never happen again.

Trump was acquitted on his impeachment Trial at the Senate. The Impeachment vote fell short by 10 votes from the required 67 votes. 7 Republican Senators alongside 50 democrats voted to impeach the former President.
