    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call for an independent commission to investigate last month’s Capitol insurrection has some bipartisan support, yet the effort risks getting tangled in the bitter aftermath of former President Donald Trump’s impeachment over the deadly assault.

    Pelosi said the commission would be modeled on the widely praised panel that probed the origins of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S. and the security failings that preceded it.

    In a letter Monday to House Democrats, Pelosi said retired Army Lieutenant General Russel Honore has already been reviewing security needs and will continue to make proposals to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.

    “It is clear from his findings and from the impeachment trial that we must get to the truth of how this happened,” Pelosi wrote, without offering specifics on what Honore has reported so far. She said the next step will be to establish an outside panel to “investigate and report on the facts and causes relating to the January 6, 2021 domestic terrorist attack upon the United States Capitol Complex.”

    Calls for a full investigation have gained urgency with the end of proceedings against Trump, who was accused of inciting the mob of his supports that stormed the Capitol as Congress prepared to certify the presidential election results. But such an inquiry also could track some of the same ground as the impeachment trial, in which Trump was acquitted after the Senate fell 10 votes short of the two-thirds majority required for a conviction. That is sure to spark a major conflict with Trump’s allies in Congress, who are seeking to put the spotlight on Pelosi’s role in Capitol security.
