Six Republicans voted with the Democrats, including Collins, Murkowski, and Romney.
The Senate Republicans blocked a bill to form a bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6th Capitol Hill riots.
The bill needed 60 votes to defeat the filibuster. The final vote came to 54 to 35.
Six Republicans joined the Democrats:
Bill Cassidy (Louisiana)
Susan Collins (Maine)
Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
Rob Portman (Ohio)
Mitt Romney (Utah)
Ben Sasse (Nebraska)
The legislation would have created a 10-person bipartisan commission. The members “would have subpoena power to carry out the investigation, but there must be a bipartisan agreement on issuing the subpoenas.”
