The U.S. House of Representatives just voted to establish a bipartisan national commission to investigate the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. While 35 House Republicans voted with Democrats to establish this commission to investigate the January 6 attempted coup, 175 House Republicans voted ‘No’.

Among the 175 ‘No’ votes were Colorado’s Republican members of Congress Lauren Boebert, Ken Buck, and Doug Lamborn. 

Morgan Carroll, Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party:

“Congresswoman Boebert, Congressman Buck, and Congressman Lamborn caved to treasonous Trump. Their refusal to defend our country or any of our institutions is cowardly.  Plain and simple.  The fact that none of the three of them could bring themselves to support a bipartisan effort to investigate the January 6 attack on our democracy and nation’s capital is pathetic, but not surprising. With these votes today, Boebert, Buck, and Lamborn showed that their loyalties are to Trump above country, their constituents, and to democracy.”
