House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that a select committee will investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

The new committee comes after the Senate voted to block legislation to form a bipartisan, independent commission investigating the attack by former President Donald Trump’s supporters. Pelosi said afterward that the House would step up investigations of the riot, in which a violent mob overran police, broke into the building and hunted for lawmakers to try to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory.
