Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is facing a furious backlash after he announced on Wednesday that he opposes a bipartisan commission to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection.

“I’ve made the decision to oppose the House Democrats’ slanted and unbalanced proposal for another commission to study the events of January the 6th,” the Senate Minority Leader said as he joined his counterpart in the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who also announced that he would not back legislation to establish a panel to study the riot and its origins.

In his opposition, McConnell complained that the commission was too focused on the deadly events at the U.S. Capitol instead of unrelated political violence.

His announcement set off a wave of anger and frustration.
