Sen. Blunt opposition to Jan 6th Commission continues

Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt maintains his opposition to starting a January 6 commission now. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin has criticized America’s prosecution of a pro-Trump mob who attacked the U.S. Capitol in January. He says they are not looters or thieves, but they instead came with “political requests.” 

During a Meet the Press appearance, Missouri U.S. Senator Roy Blunt was asked if Putin’s comments make him reconsider his opposition to starting a January 6 commission. 

According to Senator Blunt, “I think we know what we need to do here.  An immediate commission would slow us up.  We will come out with a bipartisan 2 committee and report next week.”

Blunt says the report will be more than 100 pages with a significant number of recommendations. He says all of the recommendations could begin almost immediately.
