Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday introduced a resolution to establish a House select committee with 13 appointed members, five of whom will be chosen after consultation with the GOP, to probe the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Why it matters: Democrats and Republicans remain at odds over whether the Capitol insurrection warrants a 9/11-style independent commission. After the commission failed to pass the Senate, Pelosi said she would take the matter into her own hands.

  • The committee will investigate the "domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex," as well as security failures and the transfer of power, according to the resolution. Pelosi will designate the committee chair.
  • There is so far no deadline for its final report, but the committee will be able to convey interim findings and legislative recommendations. It will also have the power issue subpoenas.

What she's saying: "January 6th was one of the darkest days in our nation’s history," Pelosi said in a statement. "It is imperative that we establish the truth of that day and ensure such an attack cannot again happen."

  • "Senate Republicans did Mitch McConnell a 'personal favor' rather than their patriotic duty and voted against the bipartisan commission negotiated by Democrats and Republicans," she added. "But Democrats are determined to find the truth."

Worth noting: Over three dozen Republicans backed the 9/11-style independent commission earlier this month, per Politico.

What's next: The House is expected to vote on the resolution Wednesday.

Congressional redistricting still stalled

We've seen little public progress in redrawing Ohio's congressional districts despite officials having already missed a recent deadline.

Why it matters: The results of this redistricting process will shape Ohioans' political representation in Washington, D.C. for the next decade.

  • This is the first redistricting attempt since Ohio voters reformed the process via constitutional amendments in 2015 and 2018.

An independent commission said Tuesday that more than 200,000 minors have been sexually abused by Roman Catholic clergy members in France since 1950, the New York Times reports.

Why it matters: The report by Independent Commission on Sexual Abuse in the Church, which was established at the request of the Catholic Church, comes amid a nationwide reckoning with sexual abuse in France.

Biden: "Real possibility" Dems may change rules to raise debt ceiling

President Biden told reporters Tuesday night that it's a "real possibility" Senate Democrats could change the chamber's filibuster rules to overcome Republican obstruction to raising the debt ceiling, per a pool report.

Why it matters: Overhauling the rules could help Democrats "stave off a potential, calamitous default roughly two weeks before a critical fiscal deadline," the Washington Post notes.
