Sen. Mitt Romney says he “would support” the House-passed bill establishing a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, making him the first Senate Republican to come out in favor of the proposal, after House Republicans opposed it.
Speaking to reporters at the Capitol on Monday evening, Romney (R-Utah) made the revelation after being asked how he would vote if Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) brought the legislation to the floor for debate.
“I would support the bill,” he responded.
The Senate is split 50-50 between Republicans and Democrats, though Vice President Kamala Harris, as Senate president, has a tie-breaking vote. Still, 51 votes are not enough under current rules to break through the filibuster. (Read more from “Disgraced GOP Senator Says He ‘Would Support’ Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Commission” HERE)
