Washington, DC – After voting in favor of H.Res.503, which would establish a Select Committee to investigate the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol Complex, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) released the following statement:

“We need a full accounting of what happened on January 6, 2021—we need answers on who was involved in the insurrection and who played a role in orchestrating it. We need transparency and truth.

“As I have said, I believe a bipartisan independent commission is the best approach—and although the House was able to pass the measure, it was blocked by the Senate. Today, I voted in support of the Select Committee (H.Res.503) because the truth matters. Because it is our duty to conduct a thorough investigation of this most egregious attack on the Capitol. Because the American people—and especially the families of our brave law enforcement on the front lines that day—deserve answers.

“With the number of conspiracy theories being perpetuated by media outlets and spreading wildly online, we have to push back with the facts and ensure what happened on January 6th never happens again. We have to put the partisan political divisions aside and put the interests of our country and our democracy at the forefront. And as I said before, we cannot let fear stop us from doing what is right.”
