‘Republicans Are Afraid of the Truth’ About January 6th, Says Durbin

The vote regarding the formation of a January 6th Commission wasn’t the home run it should have been, although it did pass with a comfortable enough margin thanks to the thirty-five Republicans who voted with Democrats to investigate just how the attacks on the Capitol unfolded and whether or not the perpetrators had help from sitting members of Congress.

The 175 Republicans who voted against the Commission sent a very specific message to the American people, according to Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). And that message is that they’re afraid of the truth, says the Democratic Majority Whip.

Appearing on “Morning Joe”, Durbin, who also serves as the Chair for the Senate Judiciary Committee, called out his Republican colleagues who were in the chamber on January 6th and experienced the same dangers as everyone else. Durbin said that the 175 members of the GOP who voted against further investigation of the January 6th insurrection are afraid of the truth being revealed, and just how soon it all might come out.

Republicans have definitely been working overtime to rewrite the events of January 6th, but the new commission will put an early end to that.

With more information about the January 6th insurrection coming to light even before a bipartisan commission can be formed, and over 400 arrests as of Thursday, it’s understandable why the Republicans tried to block any more information from the public.
