Milford, CT (May 28, 2021) – Statement: Today, the U.S. Senate voted 54-35 — falling 6 votes short of the 60-vote filibuster requirement — failing to advance the January 6th commission to investigate the insurrection (Click here for more info).

In response, Democrats Serve executive director Brett Broesder made the following statement:

“This is shameful. Republicans are turning their backs on law enforcement by refusing to investigate what role politics played in allowing insurrectionists to kill a Capitol Police officer. Republicans have made their priorities clear: appeasing right-wing extremist groups trumps law and order.

“Let’s be clear: What happened on January 6 was an attempted overthrow of our democracy. It was also an explicit threat to the public servants — including the 140 police officers who were injured during the attack — whose job is to manage the solemn process of the peaceful transfer of power. We cannot allow this behavior to go unchecked, or else risk the very foundation of our democracy.”
