House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday that her chamber will establish a select committee to investigate the deadly invasion of the U.S. Capitol by a mob of former President Donald Trump's supporters.
The select committee will investigate and report on the facts of the event and its causes, and will make recommendations on how to prevent similar attacks in the future, Pelosi said.
Pelosi noted that she hoped a broader commission could still be formed to look into the invasion, saying she sees the House committee as a "complementary" panel, rather than as a replacement.
"I'm hopeful that that could still happen at some point," Pelosi said of a Jan. 6 commission bill passing Congress.
"That is what the select committee will be about, and that is about seeking and finding the truth," she said.
