SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Committee members in the House have approved a plan to form a commission to take a closer look at the January 6 insurrection.

Not only will it investigate the siege, but it will also look at ways to prevent future breaches at the Capitol.

It's similar to the 9/11 commission. It will have 10 commissioners, with five from each party, and it will have the power to issue subpoenas to gather key information.

The commissioners must produce a report by the end of the year.

The bill to create the commission is now expected to head to the House floor for a vote.
