"They don't have the Romney's, Little Ben Sasse's and Cheney's of the world", he contended, referring to Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who supported the bill in a floor vote Wednesday afternoon and Sens.

Republicans have said that while the GOP supports the U.S. Capitol Police and National Guard members who were deployed after the January 6 breach, they view the bill as partisan and drafted without consideration for how the funds would be spent. We just don't understand how this could happen to such a bright and cheerful kid."Addressing the boys' mother, Melinda Seagroves, he added, "I am so sorry that I failed to keep him safe".

Supporters of then-President Donald Trump try to break through a police barrier, at the Capitol in Washington, January 6, 2021. The bill calls for the report to be complete by the end of this year.

The Democrats who opposed the security legislation were some of the most liberal in the House. Some have expressed the view that police treat people of color unfairly. Cori Bush, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley said that in that light, they oppose more funding for Capitol police, the Hill reports.

Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Jamaal Bowman of New York and Rashida Tlaib of MI voted "present", effectively saving the measure from going down to defeat. She voted for the bill. Now, the bill moves to the Senate, where Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he will oppose it. Ten GOP senators would need to join Democrats to meet the 60-vote threshold needed to advance legislation.

Some Democrats have approached the leadership privately, concerned about security at home while threats against them have increased, those familiar with the discussions. "The insurrection on January 6th was an attack on all who work at the Capitol - both Democrats and Republicans were hiding out and fearing for their lives that day". Their defiance underscored the party's rift as some lawmakers supported an investigation of the shocking and violent Capitol attack while leaders tried to avoid enraging the former president, whose support they believe they'll need to win House control in the 2022 elections. "Cops! This is a slap in the face to every rank-and-file cop in the United States". He made his first major post-presidential speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in February and he is scheduled to headline the North Carolina Republican Party's convention on June 5. "And quite frankly, many Republicans have courageously withstood the - shall we say - the assault on our democracy that is going forth", she said. The delays in sending the Guard to the Capitol have been blamed in part for the failure to contain the violence.

The measure would create a 10-member commission - with five members appointed by each party - to investigate the Capitol riot.
