    Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell said he opposes the Democrats’ plan for a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, casting doubt about whether Congress can come to agreement on an independent probe of the insurrection.

    A day after saying he was undecided on House Democrats’ legislation to establish a bipartisan commission, McConnell on Wednesday fell into line behind former President Donald Trump and House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy in opposition to what he called an “unbalanced proposal” to investigate the siege by supporters of the former president.

    McConnell accused Democrats of moving ahead with the proposal “in partisan bad faith” and that there already are multiple law enforcement and congressional investigations of the riot under way.

    “The facts have come out and they’ll continue to come out,” he said on the Senate floor.
