Speaker Pelosi Calls for ‘9/11-Type Commission’ To Address Capitol Security

Nancy Pelosi has called for a “9/11-type Commission” to address security risks at the U.S. Capitol following the January 6th Capitol riot.

“This letter is about you. It is about your safety as you serve in Congress, your safety in your district and your safety when traveling to and from Washington. Your safety is the charge that I gave Lieutenant General Russel Honoré, who is leading an immediate and collaborative security review to protect the safety of Members, the Capitol Complex and our Democracy,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to Democratic members of the Congress on Tuesday.

“Given the serious and ongoing security threats facing Members and the Congress, it is clear that there is a need for an emergency supplemental funding bill to meet institutional security needs,” she continues. “It is also clear that we will need to establish a 9/11-type Commission to examine and report upon the facts, causes and security relating to the terrorist mob attack on January 6.”

“It may be difficult for Members to share their stories, but it is important to facilitate an accurate personal record and for the healing process for our Congress and indeed, Country,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to Democrat colleagues.

The U.S. Capitol riot prompted the House to impeach President Donald Trump, accusing the now-former president of instigating the event. The vote passed the Democrat-controlled lower chamber by 232-197, with 10 Republican lawmakers voting against Trump.

The Senate’s impeachment trial is scheduled to begin on February 9.
