Bottom Line Up Front

  • Six months after the January 6 Capitol Insurrection, over 500 individuals have been arrested across forty-four states. 
  • The steps taken to establish a commission to investigate the insurrection have been fraught with partisan battles, but a select committee will soon be established. 
  • It is essential that the U.S. government approach the investigation of the Capitol Insurrection with the severity and bipartisan cooperation it deserves. 
  • The Capitol Insurrection investigation must be coupled with urgent policy action to counter the spread of domestic violent extremism in the U.S. and repair Washington’s reputation abroad.
