Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) has publicly opposed the commission to investigate events of January 6 at the Capitol for being “unbalanced.” House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA) and GOP Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) also took aim at the legislation.
"It's not at all clear what new facts or additional investigation yet another commission could actually lay on top of existing efforts by law enforcement and Congress," McConnell added.

McConnell said there is “no shortage” of “investigations” by federal groups of the events that occurred on January 6.
“There is, and has been, and will be more investigations by two branches of the government,” he said on the Senate floor. “It is not clear what new facts this investigation, yet another one, could actually find on top of existing studies being done by congress and law enforcement.”
